      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. What about everyday masking tape? Fold it in half, so there are no sticky bits, paint it the chosen colour, when dry use a new blade in the knife with a steel ruler and cut to desired length and width. Works for me.
  2. Looks good!
  3. I'm ex RN & I'd love to be involved.
  4. Francis that is very smart! As others have already said, you've done a cracking job with it, the weathering / dirt is superb.
  5. I'm not saying it would be cheap. I'm not saying it would be easy, or simple, or without stumbling blocks or without setbacks. it's not impossible.
  6. It doesn't have to be an Intrepid, that was just an example. Part Royal Marines' museum. Part Falklands' museum. Part Cold War museum. Function room(s). Classroom. It could be done. Imagination & a willingness to succeed.
  7. Looks good! Neat work on classic Tamiya.
  8. Very nice!
  9. Nice job of a good aircraft. Well done.
  10. Ah, progress. Looks like a Chinook!
  11. Model on.
  12. Like it, not convinced it's ready for Skipper's rounds though.
  13. USS Intrepid. In the centre of Manhattan. A fantastic museum experience, retired USN volunteer tour guides, warbirds, a submarine & Concorde. It can be done. It can be done well. It just takes the will. The Government bean counters of this grubby little afraid of it's own shadow, PC country won't let it happen. They don't understand it's worth & value, they think only pennies & pounds. The sad thing for those bean counters is, after the initial expense & yes, it will be a HUGE expense to get her ready, she would eventually turn a handsome profit & be a world class museum experience. it can be done & it can be done well.
