      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. Hi There Martin For my RDAF aircraft I use Humbrol 155 olive drab as a first coat then work with dry brushing with various greens. Kind Regards Craig
  2. A classic jet the F-100 and i must get round to building one myself i saw the RDAF ones often as they visited RAF Binbrook the former Lightning airfield on either DACT or i think a squadron exchange (ESK 727 or 730 ) in the 80s. I think a pair i will build a single seater and two seater of the RDAF will bring back some memories. Regards. Craig

  9. Hi There I recently came across a picture of a 43 sqn Phantom FG-1 taken in April 1976 at its home base of RAF Leuchars,it had no wing tanks fitted just the sidewinder rails and strangely a centreline suu-23 gun pod,would any phantom experts know if this was a normal fit at this time and was air to air gunnery carried out of the Scottish coast I cannot seem to find any other pictures of this fit taken in the uk. Kind Regards Craig
