      Ongoing DDoS Attack causing Forum Slowness   26/04/17

      In case you have missed the announcement, the reason that the forum has been slow at times since the minor version update the other day is due to a Denial of Service attack, brute force attack on our email, and judging by the lag with our FTP response, that too.  If you're feeling like you're experiencing a glitch in the Matrix, you're not wrong.  This is the same MO as the attack in September 2016 that occurred when we transitioned to the new version 4 of the software.  We're currently working with US and UK cyber-crime departments, who specialise in this sort of thing, and we're hopeful that we'll be able to track them down this time by using the accumulated evidence already held.    We are pretty certain that it's a continuation of the same attack last year, only at a reduced intensity to deter people from using the site "because it's terribly slow", rather than taking it down completely, and we're also sure of the motivations of those responsible.  Spite.   Please bear with us in the interim, and wish us luck in dealing with these.... "people".

  8. Hmm, I've just received the list of Dragon's August releases and they seem to be releasing some of the older kits again. I do hope that Dragon is not going to continue the 'one piece' trend as there are at least four kits in their August releases that I will buy IF the tracks and wheels are separate, but none if they are in one piece. The ironic thing is that one-piece tracks are marketed in their 'armour pro' line. I'm not sure why Dragon is releasing wargaming kits at standard kit prices, either. Robby, aka Mr Not-Very-Happy
  9. Coming together very nicely, looking forward to seeing it in paint! Roger

  16. very nice work, great job on the scheme and the finish looks great....
  17. Just noticed something spooky. Are they quintuplets, or did the British have the ability to clone back then? John.
  18. I don't know if there is a 'fix it' list for this one, but there was for the earlier Mk.II edition: http://web.ipmsusa3.org/content/humber-armoured-car-mk-ii Might come in handy, as some details are the same such as the engine and chassis? regards, Jack
  19. Cheers. Indeed, changing the tracks sometimes (especially in the old models) make a difference to look. Usually I am using the Friulmodel model metal ones, but in this one they cost more then model itself. Also I usually build the metal ones much faster then plastic. Ian, I think the tracks is the thing which can be probably replaced without significant damage to the model. Maybe you can think about this?
  20. Ahhh!!!! Mr Basket
  21. Workable boogies is good idea for dioramas - John's proposal will work for you. Main unlucky is free standing.

  24. Last week
  25. This camo was just starting to come into use as I left the Marine Corps (1978). The above photo is a great example of "gray desert" MERDC. To be truthful, as a west coast Marine, I only saw "summer verdant" and "gray desert". This would coincide with the large desert training areas out west as well as what was, at the time, thought to be a threat area (Pacific rim). Years later the PD I was with took charge of a few surplus US Army trucks. All were painted in "winter verdant" colors except one was "Summer verdant" The US 7th Army tested camo called MASSTER in Europe at the same time. That is also illustrated on the above listed web site. I say all this because i believe it drives home a point. There were a variety of colors schemes in use at any given time based on geography. G
  26. One of the restored monument tanks is dark gray. I found a narrative which indicates this was not the original color, but was used as a nod to WWII Germany. Some photos seem to show a dark color, others a medium shade. One restored example is sand colored. Best guess, green. A medium olive green. (think 4BO Russian green only a bit darker) The remainder of the Spanish army's vehicles were that color. It seems to fade to a gray green color similar to sage green. G
  27. I thank your interest...new photos you found in "ready for inspection". Cheers from Brazil.
  28. Thanks Fellas ! , I`ll try a spot of glue . Don .
