      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. Love it obviously!! 😍
  2. You certainly know how to make life difficult for yourself, very nice result! It's nice to see a build like this to pick up some real modeling skills from.
  3. Maybe the HET never made it there, i have no idea, but i do remember having a pic of a near identical challenger on one, but obviously have no idea where that pic was taken. Lets call it modelers licence ., Thats the best (only!) pic ive seen of the underside of a king trailer. i did think it odd to have half the tracks overhanging the bed, i thought at first it was a scale error between the two models!! Tea makes everything better...except stupid design. i have an antar mk2 and tasker trailer ill be sticking a chieftain arv on. if you have any pics of the bottom of those id appreciate them
  4. Thanks for the replies, but im afraid it been finished for months so theres no changing it now general concensus was that the chains went through the larger holes, through the holes to the lugs or were wrapped around the suspension. (or indeed anything available) Its not the full tes, just the first basic DL2 up armour package, and its on an in -theater Kosovo KFOR tank. so that solved both questions i think DSC03322 by omgpainful, on Flickr look forward to seeing your builds!!
  5. absolute stunner, its been an education to follow.
  6. cool helmet glow. its all looking very sharp now.
  7. got to agree, that decaling looks brill.
  8. Its finished. It was not a pleasant experience. Thanks for the encouragement, it was sorely needed. In the end it looks like a Wessex, and the small additions like the nitesun, ir jammer and aerials make it OK to look at, but it was far too much hard work to make me want to repeat it or reccommend the kit to anyone else. Its the only GB i have failed to finish in time. cant blame that solely on the kit though. Ill post a pic to prove it here and maybe a couple more in a RFI post. There are a few more in the same Flickr album. Good luck to all yet to finish, and well done to those that did.
  9. and now the body is finished, minus aerials a couple of handles etc, had a semi flat coat and a bit of a panel line wash. Glad to see the tape didnt pull off the alclad gloss coat i dipped the canopy in. the nitesun needs a lens in it too. the example build in the instructions show a nice red decal around the exhausts with the correct text on them. the ones supplied in the kit had no text and were so small they actually sat inside the exhaust mount!!!! another example of a seemingly 1/72 scale part!! rubbish doesnt cover it. i had to spray the red on and dirty it up so it didnt stick out like a sore thumb ill get around to the rotors very soo. nearly there thank God.
  10. when i saw an earlier pic i thought "oops, the driver doesnt fit" now he has his arms on i can see it supposed to be like that 😋 really does look the part now all those decals are on!
  11. Good to see a really nice one finished!
  12. very nice indeed!! you could cover the intake with a tarpaulin FOD guard.
  13. i know the Gb is finished but.. the decals are on (apart from the one around the exhaust which is a sore point at the moment) it had a gloss coat and a grime wash to pick out some details which seems to have worked out ok. it actually looks something like a wessex now. still a pile 'o work to do but its passed the " i cant be bothered to finish it" point.
  14. has to be the best looking wessex ive ever seen...and in 1/72!!!! amazing.
  15. todays end of play, a base coat at last, done freehand as I couldnt see the point in masking it. And thats it. Sorry I didnt finish but cest la vie. Due to various things modeling came to a full stop. Being so far behind any chance of finishing went out the window. What happens now? can a Mod move this to a normal thread so i can carry on?
