      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. Perfect, your doing an F12, not FH, that bumper is F series
  2. They are great kits, but you do need skill to put them together!
  3. I'll be watching this build, would like to build one after a fun evening in/on the planet bar in Liverpool a couple of years ago 🍺
  4. Looks good, but the steering tie rod should be behind the axle, not in front
  5. If you did a chassis with axles to take italeri wheels you could sell them for use with KFS transkit cabs. I've 8 here that all need an italeri volvo chassis!
  6. Does it have air suspension on the back end?
  7. A cool build, these amt kits are a pig to make, but for older American trucks they are the only choice
  8. I popped along to the running day today, my pics are Here if you want a looky
  9. A few old cars and motorcycles turned up at the transport museum today, dunno what they are if anyone can fill me in....

  10. Aldridge, I'll be there for a few hours, got too much to do with the ERF for next weekends truckfest for a long day out!
  11. Looks good. Can't believe some of the buses being preserved now, they are so young! Ill be driving for a local museums running day Sunday, they will be running 4 low floor buses that are already in preservation
  12. I've just been into the Land Rover factory and spotted a soft top Range Rover. Did take a picture t but 'asked' to delete it. There was a couple of prototype discoverys too and a business protection jaaaag
  13. Done a bit more, wheels are on the broway is a Base coat of mud, washes and powders will be added later.
  14. Had a couple of days off and in between 'jobs' around the house Ive got some paint on, the cab, it had a coat of white on the roof and my plan is to sand it back to give a pinky sun bleached look. The door is odd, it will get a decal to look like its off another lorry. The chassis has been painted silver, a spray from poundland! Looks OK and it will be covered in mud and dirt anyway. First coat of black on the wings and window rubbers too. Starting to get somewhere. I also got some plastic at Cosford for the tipper body ribs, I plan to make the flat sections from a thick foil baking tray so I can distress it! AEC MM6 work in progress by richellis1978, on Flickr AEC MM6 work in progress by richellis1978, on Flickr One wheel is just to check my nuts fit, and the clearance on the cab. only 9 more to make, then its fitting the 10 nuts per hub!
  15. sherpa van, bedford CF, or a new transit/ sprinter/modern van lets also think maybe montego, allegro, rover sd1 like the 'normal' over exotic stuff!
