      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. Thanks Bootneck this is brilliant, just the info I was looking for. It will come in handy.
  2. My first Airfix kit was actually 3 kits I received for my birthday. Golden Hind (The little one with the water base, if I remember correctly it had a couple of holes so you could hang it on the wall). HMS Ark Royal F4U Corsair. The only one I painted was The Golden Hind. The corsair went strait out the bedroom window crashing below. HMS Ark Royal went into the bath tub to be sunk by duckie.
  3. I am trying to build the Airfix kit and would like to know. I wish to build it as she was on her last deployment. What colour is the flight deck? Green as in the instructions? Any and all help is greatly appreciated.
  4. Has anyone looked at the S&M model of the Andover? What is it like? What decals come with it?
  5. Nice job. Now Airfix are releasing a AEW this year.
  6. Some more good info. Thanks
  7. This is great guys thanks fro all the info.
  8. Thank you for all the help I will look into all the suggestions and links.
  9. My sister has asked me to do a diorama of a Wessex as used in N.Ireland in the early 70's She served in the UDR and was flown all over in a Wessex. The Wessex is easy but I would like to know if anybody has made Figures (Military) Landrover Saracen Bedford lorry. from this era. I have checked local hobby shops and have had no luck. Any and all help would be appreciated.
  10. That's a terrible idea it should have the blue star of the Cowboys on it.
  11. Can anyone tell me what vehicles and figures in 1/72 scale are or have been available? I know Airfix made The Chieftain and Saracen. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Also did Revell make 1/72 paratroopers circa 80's
  12. Thanks Dave I thought it might be the Monogram kit. Pity it isn't a new mold, would have been nice.
  13. The Revel F4J is this a new kit? How accurate is it. Want to do a 74 squadron aircraft. Thanks for the help!
  14. My Victor's arrived yesterday and the wife took the box from the postie and told me I have to wait until Christmas. Boo Hoo!
  15. I live in Canada so it won't arrive here until late Jan or Feb, so I ordered mine from Hannants. Waiting for the email telling me they are on the way. Will build one in white and one in go with my Valiants and Vulcans by Airfix..
