Martin XB-51

Having a problem getting the Martin XB-51 (fs9xb-51_145124.zip) to show in fsx aircraft selection screen. I have FSX gold & acceleration running on W64 Pro.
Tried all the usual things, adding "category=airplane" to [general], checking the model.cfg is all there, .air file, panel, etc.
Comes up in the FSX airplane folder, but does not appear on the selection screen, just the background default clouds.
Could be that this is an extremely old fs9 job, but thought I would ask around.
Would just like to add this unusual plane to my hangar.

What is the file exactly?
The quoted file is not in the SimV library.

I assume it's this one. https://simviation.com/1/search?submit=1&keywords=Martin+XB-51&categoryId=

I've checked out the MDL file in Notepad & it was created for an early version of MSFS (FS2002/CFS2). It might display in FS9 but no chance in FSX. Sorry.

Many thanks for that. I thought there was a good reason behind it. Pity
