      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. for my models of "Carol's Daddy" and "Mrs. Virginia" I am planning on stealing them from P-40 kits. looks like the angle of the spine might be close enough. but, I haven't actually done it yet so I can't guarantee it will work
  2. tell me about it ! I much prefer the original (1981?) British miniseries for HHGTTG instead of the new movie version ; the movie deviated too much from the book series.
  3. nice job on those kits. and Thank You for building these for veterans , that is a very nice touch
  4. thank you for that link , JWM ! there are some good photos there, one I would like to colorize.
  5. one other thing the others might not be considering... if viewing this on a modern HD computer monitor it's capable of a degree of brightness that was impossible in the 1940's filters were used in the 40's - they were for anti-glare purposes and were available in red or green if you really want to start a war start a new topic "Interpreting Soviet WWII colors from black-and-white photos" that will surely light a raging bonfire
  6. nice vid , thanks for the tip (downloaded that one and part 2 !)
  7. in the case of the Hellcat ; the Hasegawa (F6F-5) is very nice , but so is the ARII (F6F-3) for the Thunderbolt ...TAMIYA ; miles better than any other kit of the t-bolt. (if you want to do a late model P-47 (D-30,D-35,D-40) you will have to buy the P-47M kit) Lightning ? I agree with Jessica ; Academy or Hasegawa
  8. I have 2 copies of Tamiya's PR IV / B IV kit and I am not using the rockets from them. you are welcome to them if you want them. they are what is shown in this photo :
  9. ... you forgot "Impatient Virgin"
  10. if you had one of the early issues of the ICM Yak-9 or Yak-7 it was necessary to get rid of the thick , heavy brown mold release agent the kits were bathed in. paint just didn't stick to it ; sometimes glue didn't either.
  11. I was able to log in (after many attempts to remember my password ) maybe send Massimo an email ? or try registering a new username/password ???
  12. P-40D is 4 wing guns Kittyhawk Mk 1 P-40E is 6 wing guns Kittyhawk Mk 1A ( just pointing out a typo)
  13. Thanks for that link 72modeler ! lots of great images there , I will have to go back later when I have more time so see all of them.
  14. whatever one better represents (dark) Olive Drab # 41
  15. at the present time I happen to be working on a pair of 1989 re-issues of the MONOGRAM P-40C. one for the RAF and another for the AVG. I have built (or am building again) several of these classic 1/48th WWII planes over the years. 2 P-61's ,2 B-26 Marauders ,B-25J ,F4U-4N,Avenger,SBD,2 Hellcats,a Mustang,Spitfire IIA,2 bubbletop Thunderbolts,3 razorback Thunderbolts 2 P-38's ,3 Hurricanes 2 Typhoons and 5 P-39 Airaobras.
