      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. ok, I'll suggest; yes to all three eyes; have you done them yet? I would paint the eyeball pale yellow, put a dark green ovalish centre and within that a yellow or orange vertical line [a bit like a crocodile eye]
  2. I believe it is Revell's kit
  3. Ordered a new car. Delivery approx 3rd week of June!
  4. umm, sort of; I can sort of remember TT saying “You’re an absolute shower " on topic; delivered today a new-to-me very vintage heavy duty Singer sewing machine Haven't even had a chance to open the package to get the serial number so I find out just about when it was made
  5. In case anyone else suggests it; the Academy WW2 Light Vehicles set has some bits for a Kubelwagon engine, but not enough of the right bits
  6. Everyone has their own preference Some find they can't airbrush brand X whilst others find brand X fine for airbrushing Whatever one works for you

  8. ummm, its crashed - battle damage
  9. Do the Dam Buster version; an iconic British aircraft carrying a unique British invention
  10. I signed, but a/ this may be too late. its been ongoing for a couple of years now. Last date for objections was last October b/ afaik once the CWGC has put a marker up the grave cannot be touched as it is now a recognised war-grave; its an offence in law to interfere with any war-grave. The CWGC has the legal right to put up a marker anywhere they see fit
  11. I noticed that the MOAB was used for destroying undergound tunnels. I would have thought a Gran Slam type would have been more efficient
  12. afair the yellow leading edge was a Northern Europe ID marking and not applicable to the Med or Far East
  13. The CO would have been the one who isssued the orders and ensured the codes were that size. AMO said codes to be 48 inches
  14. That looks like an artists error; although without a photograph of that P51 to confirm or deny it However; Hawker Typhoons did wear narrow b/w/b/w/b stripes under the wings for a period as a type & friendly identity marking
  15. I didn't have to park on any yellow [Humbrol 24-ish]. There was a handy proper parking space Got there at 15.20-ish Bought these two; George; the nice lady in the shop says they can mail tea to you in Texas [me enjoying a cup of the mint tea as I write this at 05.22. Just in a short time ago]
