      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. I'm along for the ride here. I built one of these for my Dad many years ago (he's a retired fire-fighter). Mine however was straight out of the box with little paint (just the colour of the plastic). Looking forward to seeing this come together
  2. It's a bit stop-and-start Stix but moving in the right direction
  3. Haha - Thanks Peter Lots of wheels to do yet. I'm heading out on the bike for a few hours this morning but I should find some time this afternoon (if the wife doesn't have other plans! )
  4. Thanks - I'd love to take the credit but it's the quality of the kit that allows it to go together so well
  5. First coat of paint now on
  6. Thank Stix I've now completed 98% of the build and it's ready for paint. I did however spray the top of the sprockets before the guards were fitted (and made the most of the paint) as they would have been difficult to reach.
  7. Thanks Peter - Hoping to get some paint on it this weekend Hi Glynn, Yes, that's the plan. I'll paint the wheels separately before installing but the hull and turret will be complete. Only thing is, I'll have to use the rubber tracks so as to be able to feed them through. However, the difference in detail between those and the plastic tracks is non-existent. If anything, I'll not have the ejection marks to worry about
  8. Managed to build the turret this evening; not many parts. Starting to look like a tank now The track guards are dry fitted but I may fix them with the brackets before painting.
  9. Grills now on the hull with a few more small parts. I sprayed black paint under the grills before fitting and used up the remaining paint on a touch of pre-shade
  10. Nicely done - Really pleased to see this over the line. Looks brilliant!
  11. Hi Glynn, It certainly will
