Don't know if this has been posted here before, but it is quite interesting. There are many parameters you can change, and searching the intertoob can provide average stats for the various cometary and asteroidal bodies to plug in the values.

You can also replicate the conditions of past impacts, given the various assumed values (angle of impact, speed, etc) of those impactors.
