      DDoS and Brute Force Attacks   09/18/2016

      From the day following upgrade to the new forum software, 15th Sept until the 19th, we were under a concerted attack by a person or persons using a number of 'bots and other people's Proxy networks to carry out what is called a Distributed Denial of Service attack, which is a method by which these 'bots submit thousands of requests to the website per second to overload the server and bring the site to its knees.  While this was going on, they were also making Brute Force attacks on our remote communications port to try and breach the server so they could do anything from format the hard drives to change ownership of the site, and bombarding the mailserver with similar bogus requests, some of which left some rather telling details behind.  This was followed up a couple of days later with a further attack that left more data to sift through, which we have passed on to our IT forensics people.On the advice of our Lawyer and fellow member JohnT, we yesterday informed the National Crime Agency and requested their assistance with the matter, and in an ongoing dialogue with them to find the culprits, so we are allowing them access to the server and its logs.    We don't believe that this is a random attack on balance, but for 5 days and a further evening we had to put up with some disturbance and interruption to the usually fast response of the website as we are seeing now that the attack has ended.  We will prevail, and don't worry about it.  We were the target, and these people will not win.  Karma will catch up with them   Mike, Greg, Dave & Julien.

  2. Didn't they hold the record for a plastic kit with the most parts (Le Soleil Royale) until the Soar Art Dora came along?
  3. Thanks for helping us clear some space guys! Be quick if you want these Xtracrylix paints as only a few colours left now at just £1.12 each: RAF Dark Earth RAF Ocean Grey RAF Sky RAF Dark Slate Grey Desert Pink Gulf Dark Grey FS16081 Azure Blue Medium Grey FS16251 Neutral Grey FS16270 Dark Compass Grey FS16320 Light Grey FS16495 Light Grey FS16622

  5. It's taken an age but they're now back in stock Tom. Thanks, John
  6. Hi, All of our Alclad II paints are now just £3.80 a bottle. Primers and Klear Kotes just £4.49. Whilst stocks last. Thanks for looking! John & Mandy Models R Go
  7. 1:108th I believe. It dates from the time Revell altered kit scales to fit the bits into a standard sized box.
  8. Hi, We’re having a clearout of selected Scale Aircraft Conversions sets to make way for new lines. 1/3rd off RRP! Sturdy cast metal landing gear for Spitfires, Hawks, Tornados, Ju88s, etc. Supplies are limited. First come, first served. See the foot of our homepage for details.

  10. Did you know we stock PlusModel lead wire for detailing wheelbays, cockpits, engines, brake lines, etc? Full range of sizes available from 0.2 - 1mm. Cheers, John
  11. Thanks for your kind comments folks :-) Actually we do stock Mr Metal Color already. Note though that Chrome and Aluminium will be out of stock for a while as there are 'ingredient issues' with these colours back in Japan. We're not expecting restocks until August-ish. We stock a couple of the Mr Color paint packs (Interior colours and RAF camo) but can't get the other lacquers. The new UK distributor (Albion Alloys) is considering them but it won't be until the new year. I guess if you want to see them freely available here you need to start lobbying them :-) Cheers, John
  12. Many thanks for your kind feedback CedB :-) Yes, we have found a good partner in Interlink Express. They deliver excellence and peace of mind which compliments our service rather than being a weakest link. Their 'Predict' real-time tracking is a real bonus too! Cheers, John & Mandy Models R Go
  13. Pegasus 1/32 T-800 Endoskeletons diorama just landed! Thanks, John Models R Go
  14. If, as I suspect, this is designed to sell lots of merchandising for youngsters off the back of it, then it's brilliant! It has a computer game 'look' on purpose I reckon. And why not? Getting another generation into Thunderbirds has got to be a positive for modelling, assuming the kits follow. I wonder who'll get the license? John Thunderbirds Models R Go
