If you have unlimited then have a look in the visor, thers one in the fluids menu, you might have to a bit of reverse engineering to get the feeling for the levels but you should get it.

Theres a tutorial on computer arts called in the blast Zone thats creating a nuke using fluids, I did it a while back and it dodnt look too good IMHO, compared to getting one from the visor and then adjusting it to suit.

That render does look good. I'm actually thinking of a nuke to go along with this destroyer I'm modelling now and I was thinking, how would you have the whole scene whited out by the blast for extra realism? You can't do it in post production since the white light has to come from inside the cloud.
