      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. It nice to see you making a ready made kit again Christian instead of one of you scratch built cars, even though they turn out to be just as good a most manufacturers kits anyway. Great subsist by the way also and my god that's a lot of books for reference. I look forward to seeing this monster come together. Shaun
  2. Jesus Randy that is some amazing scratch building there I couldn't even think of where to start with a project like this. Shaun
  3. Thanks Randy the new wheels are a must for this kit. I could never let that kind of mistake from fujimi pass on a lemans car. Shaun
  4. Thanks Roger. So after all the little bits that were needed to be done the build has taken a step up in pace today. I wanted to get the wheels on the chassis as they are bigger in diameter by 2-3 mm I needed to a) check once More for clearance check the ride height. I know the look like they are sticking out a lot compared to the arches but when the body is on they don't. I have started filling in the hole that I cut to remove the rear seats. Now for the good stuff. The body has had a coat of primer put on, mainly just to check the areas I had to fill and to see if I had missed and mould line. I love the shape of the old 911s. Then mocked the chassis to the body to check for clearance of the wheels in the arches. The rear wing plane had to be trimmed a little as it was bowing when I forced it on And finally I wanted to check the roll cage as I have changed the main mounting point of it And from the front and as you can see a few bends need to be made and a few areas need plastic rod added to make the correct length More soon Shaun
  5. More done to the Macca today. I bought so carbon decals at the start of the week for a future build but with enough to spare for other cars so I have used some on this for the roof and side inlets. The spot are just from dried water a were wiped off before getting some flat clear on. The front bumper part has been masked off and had the black area painted on. Then once the paint had a few hours to dry in the sun the purple area was polished with micro mesh higher grades and then the while lot was glued onto the car. I really like the look of this baby McLaren now, just wished they done a race car version like they did with the 650s. More soon Shaun
  6. Just came across this on 1999.jp and I for one am properly happy Having made a GTR from Aoshima I pretty sure it's going to be good plus it is only £25, So a lot cheaper than the trans kit route currently available. Shaun And yes I am one of the 14 who have already reserved.
  7. Liking this a lot, nice challenging livery. Shaun
  8. A little more has been done to this today. The floor and suspension bits have been painted in wilkos white. It took really well which surprisedme A lot. For some reason the other bit look blue in the picture but they are the same white as above Suspension bits and brake disks have been painted also The rear wing support piece has been glued on I have had to fill the licence plate holes as these won't be on a lemans car I have managed to glue on all the lower suspension parts so hopefully soon I will have a rolling chassis The front end was a little tricky with the offset holes Brake disks have had the calipers painted I have also had to cut out the rear seats as in the pictures it just shows painted metal. Finally I must just say as this is the first 911 I have made I kind of get why people like the older shape of this car. More soon Shaun
  9. Your added bits for the fujimi kit look great. It's a game fujimi didn't do the kind of extras you have done. Shaun
  10. So a little more done to this recently I need to try out a new make of carbon decal so templates have been made up. The black areas on the front have been put on with airbrushed tamiya pot paint And the same to the rear. More soon Shaun
  11. A small update for this build which is moving very slowly due to no time to model much at the moment. The brakes/modded wheel holders have all been done now with multiple mock ups just so I get the wheel track width right The roll cage is very simple but has no locating tags for the parts so it was mainly done by eye so if anything need changing this will be done when final assembly takes place. The floor pan and lower suspension parts have all been primer and are awaiting a coat of cheapy wilkos white paint. And the body after many..... minutes of sanding is close to having some primer put on once the filler in the sun roof panel and fuel filler cap has been sanded off. I hate so say it but so far I am really enjoying a slower build of a car with very few issues. More soon Shaun
  12. Looking great Tim the red really suits the widebody look. Shaun
  13. Hmm they do seem to have a larger tank in the closest car but not the martini car. Also are they tanks being the rear wheels on the pink pig or something else. Shaun
  14. Looking great flipper. Bad about the decals not fitting as well as hoped but you fixed well (albeit expensive fix) Shaun
  15. I've seen somewhere that it's for a bigger fuel tank but I have seen no 917k or lh reference that it goes on. My thoughts were that maybe it's for a 917/10 or 30 but I'm not sure as the I can't find any pictures of the real car with it. Shaun
