      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. Well the article says "new" but whether that's "new build" or just new to Bulgaria isn't clear. Price must have been good to win out against pre-owned F16s & Typhoons though?
  2. I always wash a model, sometimes before any construction commences but always just before the main spraying stage. AFAIK there is a chance that the model will be covered in an invisible greasy mould release agent - not good for paint application. Generally speaking I rarely prime first. The exception would be where the model has a "mix" of plastic & resin components (such as a conversion); this results in different base colours that can be hard to cover & obtain a good overall colour.
  3. Eduard manage this with their Fw190 kits.
  4. What is this "organise" of which you speak?
  5. Mmmmmm, I found the MkII a complete dog & binned it - one of the few kits I've EVER done that with. However, this might be worth a punt for the money!
  6. Perhaps not but it seems that the family members that reported it to the BBC should have!
  7. Just seen this on eBay but it's news to me. Anyone know more?
  8. apparently, "reports of his death were exaggerated"! Good one BBC!
  9. I bought one a few months back. Whilst the idea is good, the example I bought was pretty cheap, came with Chinese instructions (no translation), confusing buttons & an internal battery that lasts about 10 mins. Of course it comes with a power cord for plugging in to the accessory socket but that bloody cable flapping about does my head in! If you're buying one I'm sure it's worth spending out for a good quality example.
  10. CMR? Superb quality, shouldn't be a problem!
  11. On Mac or iPad? Browsing in private mode?
  12. Vague recollections of the Antarctic Auster. Yellow plastic, no painting of course & a pin to hold the prop so it span. IIRC the instructions suggested this!
