      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. Welcome. Always pop into model junction when I'm in Bury. Not bought anything the last few times I've been as they rarely have something I'm after. Great little shop though.
  2. Looking good.
  3. Watching with interest. Really wish I had the time and a kit to enter this STGB. Lovely A/C.
  4. Great job so far.
  5. Looking good.
  6. Looking good. I remember being on Fraser Island, Queensland in 2003 when a couple of these blasted past us down the coast. Great sight.
  7. Since the kids came along nearly three years ago I haven't had time to climb or mountain bike unfortunately. Luckily I get a bit of time to model still. Hopefully I can get back into it all as they get older and I get some time back.
  8. Great stuff. I only got round to painting a few zombies from mine. Life and kids have since got in the way. Not played it for a good while either. As you can tell. I'm a Ned user.
  9. Thought so. Smart choice.
  10. Interesting. Are you involved in this or is this with Floyd or someone?
  11. Almost. I need to add the little antennas, fuel probe and little aerial on one of the nose gear doors. This snapped on the sprue and is out of scale. I have attached the plastic bases to the door. I just need to glue some wire to them to make the aerial. All the gear, tires and gear doors need attaching to cocktail sticks for painting. I have ordered some two six masks for the windows. They also have wheel masks which I might use. The part I'm not looking forward to is masking inside the intakes. I'm really looking forward to the painting stage. It's the thing I have looked forward to most with the whole project. Not much longer.
  12. Oh $*#%. That sucks.
  13. Watching with interest. I need to get one of these to go with my nam collection. Roden kits have their quirks.
  14. I don't think it's that overdone. Maybe for what you were after but I would be happy with it.
  15. Small update guys I have been going over some of the seams that I wasn't happy with around the leading edges where the wings joined and the tail cone to the fuselage. The tail has been attached and filled at the base. I dry brushed some oils into the cockpit to break it up a bit. Not that you will see much and attached the cockpit glass. IMAG2830 by Mark Inman, on Flickr I have filled around the engine nozzles so they look a bit more presentable. Not 100% accurate but it will do. IMAG2828 by Mark Inman, on Flickr IMAG2829 by Mark Inman, on Flickr Finally have the paints in for the Vulcan. Never used these before but have heard good things. I'll have to do a test to make sure the colours are accurate. IMAG2834 by Mark Inman, on Flickr I have sanded one of the Starlifter's wing roots as they have a noticeable step. IMAG2831 by Mark Inman, on Flickr The paints sorted for the Starlifter. IMAG2833 by Mark Inman, on Flickr
