      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. Thoughts & prayers with all those impacted by this shameful act!
  2. Thanks Ray, currently half way through series 3 on utube. Dunno why I never thought to check there....
  3. Still tempting 😎
  4. Primed, ready for the OD
  5. Great series. Unfortunately missed all of series 3 and the BBC playback service is cleaver enough to know I don't live there 😀
  6. Finally got all the little bits attached and she is finally ready for the paint shop. I did get distracted by another quick fun project. That happens a lot Unfortunately the airbrush can't come out till the weekend so in the meantime where did I put the Westminster?
  7. Picked this boy up at IMSS show yeaterday and couldn't resist putting him together. Two hours work and he's done. But the joints make it look like a toy so I'm going to fill all them in and sculpt to make look like real elbow, knee, ankle, shoulder, hip etc and then repaint the whole thing. But he did go together very easily, is well molded and looks cool. All the parts can come apart also for now. None of the joints glued yet. Will definitely get more of these figures
  8. Top notch job Sir!
  9. Finally got my hands on the 5th team member. Again, like the other Legend SEAL figure there are a lot of parts and all beautifully molded. Will resume this project once I get my ADATS Stryker complete
  10. I only do dirty Phil! 😀
  11. This is my current project for a What-if group build on IPMS Ireland, and is more a "when-if" than a what-if I have been posting in the What-if section here on Britmodeller but I don't think too many land-lubbers frequent that portion of the forum so moving to the Armour section. I hope no-one minds and that someone finds this interesting. First, some history:Currently there are 10 variants of the US Army Strykers: M1129A & B are basically same vehicle with different armament. Similarily there are different sub-variants of the 1130 & 1132 Initially the thinkong behind the Stryker programme was that heavier armed vehicles and air-defense would not be required. However the US Army are currently trialing a new version with a 30mm canon in a turret. This is a direct result of recent Russian moves in Crimea and Ukraine. https://www.armytimes.com/articles/army-receives-first-stryker-upgraded-with-30mm-cannon And now we get into the realms of speculation. In my opinion one of the glaring omissions of the Stryker line-up was an Air Defence version. So my entry will be an ADA Stryker which I believe we will eventually see in the real world also. And then during the build I came across this article which backs up my theory: http://breakingdefense.com/2017/04/boeing-upgrades-air-defense-vs-russians-avenger-shorad/?utm_source=hs_email&utm_medium=email&utm_content=50719832&_hsenc=p2ANqtz-_nwH5N_n8R1nWDK4CtMtrI1R75hxhE5GM09cx40esYhboFCIgv8QKdUIH7fzaLF_9xczgRnaZeHvFz6N5_B1uARxAvBQ&_hsmi=50719832 So my version will be based on the M1128 Mobile Gun System platform, as it already has a "turret", and the Legend Productions ADATS system for the M1113 Started on the lower hull and rear while waiting for the ADATS to arrive. Wouldn't touch the upper hull until I see exactly what surgery in needed And then the postie delivered the ADATS last Friday! It's a lot of resin Beautifully cast though Plus a large fret of PE, some wire and decals for a Canadian vehicle. 2 double sided A4 pages of colour instructions. A lot of the bits are for the body on an M113 so won't be used Got the main bit of surgery completed. Lots of filling to do but happy with the new top deck And over a very productive weekend the ADATS turret is now together. Some pretty large pour blocks to be removed but no real issues except the sheer volume of resin bits. Lots of sawing and sanding and filing.... Doing Tamiya tape straps with PE buckles was the hardest bit though So here is how she looks now. I'll keep the two missile units off till after painting. One is held on here with blue-tac And how it will look on the hull. A bit bulky but doesn't seem too out of proportion or unrealistic to my biased eye Tonight I start detailing the upper hull
