      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. Bucc Javelin Sea Vixen Scout/Wasp Vulcan Please!
  2. Looks VERY similar to the old Model Alliance sheet, right down to (if my eyesight serves) to the wrong date for the 1100 years of King Alfred's Navy marking. Still an inspiring sheet though.
  3. Ahhh, Model Junction for every trip to Bury, brings back memories!
  4. Agreed, Airfix kit is terrible. The only real options are Hasegawa which is regularly on offer on offer on Luckymodel, or a very much 2nd best in Fujimi. All other kits on the market are either the wrong version or pants.
  5. 1109 (Thetford) Everything
  6. Vulcan, SA Bulldog, Gazelle, Puma, Javelin.
  7. This site might help... http://www.tornadosig.com/index.html
  8. Hobbyboss 100%, I think the only real edge Kinetic has is there is a late wing boxing.
  9. Yep, at least one was, I believe as part of the scheme trials.
  10. You're correct the Hawks were officially painted in MSG over Barley Grey, I'm not aware of any being painted in a single grey, even for trials (although my memory isn't exactly conclusive proof). As with anything, start with the official colours and mix to match your refs
  11. Correct, ZE350 in it's previous life was a NATC bird at Pax River and was never fitted with the intake RWR fairings.
  12. Looked even better in the flesh (plastic!?) last night, still surprised it didn't end up in African markings though?
  13. Never heard of a red radome doing the rounds, but sounds interesting. Despite some comments on the below thread, the pictures suggest unpainted natural fibreglass (or whatever the official material is) which would also explain the strong brown tint to grey painted radomes. Black radomes also took on a brown tint when faded. http://www.fightercontrol.co.uk/forum/viewtopic.php?f=18&t=45015
  14. It shouldn't happen, but if it does this stuff works wonders... https://www.hannants.co.uk/product/MSFILM
  15. Cool, couple of refs here that might help if you haven't already found them?
