      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".

  1. No, sorry, John. A Google search on the image only returns this. See post #19 where the author surmises the page may come from F-100 or F-4 manuals. I could almost certainly rule out the F-4 since none of my old -34 Weapons Manuals mention the ALE-2. I don't have any F-100 manuals ... but T-33, or B-57 Weapons Manuals would be better potential sources. Gene K Note: LSP appears to be down at this time (Sat 29 Apr, 1800GMT)
  2. Cookie, Well ... if you want to "refine" those tanks, this thread shows some ALE-2 pod measurements and details. And here is the profile and more detail. Gene K
  3. No, Cookie, nor did I "encounter" any T-33s with the radar reflector and chaff pods. In that regard, many eons ago I talked with Mark of WolfPak Decals about issuing the pods in 1/72, but they never materialized. What's your plan on the pods? Gene K EDIT: Now you've got me looking through old references, like in this thread. Great to have canberra kid "standing by".
  4. Here's the full size of the itty bitty thumbnail: Gene K
  5. Awesome start, Cookie. My thread seat belt is fastened. Gene K
  6. Well, Georgio, those instrument panels are THE BEST. In that regard, listen to this first verse. (just the first verse) You really are the best! Gene K
  7. Really (!) nice job on the pit ... so good in fact that you should have used it on the later, much better incarnation of the Phantom. Gene K
  8. No need for the links, thanks. I was just thinking that the cockpit must have been pretty noisy. Gene K
  9. All of your progress is indeed "proper" -- extremely proper!!! Looking ahead, is there, in the real airplane, an air gap between the rear of the canopy and the airframe (straight canopy, curved fuselage)? Some sort of ventilation design? Gene K
  10. So, since Smoke Gets In Your Eyes , what's your plan for markings ???? I do like this scheme better than rings: Gene K
  11. Thanks for the update. Cockpit details will be excellent with your artistic hand. SInce you now have me hooked on a Macchi, I was going to get the Hasegawa C.205, but since I couldn't readily find one (plenty of MC.202s available, however), I elected to get the Italeri Hasegawa repop. To my pleasant surprise, the decal sheet includes ... tah daa -- smoke rings! (I like the blotchy gray schemes best) Gene K
  12. Well, if I'd known about the butties, I'd have been here sooner! Feed me some modelling, Giorgio Gene K
