      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. Many thanks to all for the comments. I wish you all a nice and chilling rest of that weekend. Dirk
  2. Sry, no there isn`t any built thread for that..
  3. Many thx for your comment. I`ve used a small amount of grey pigments simply irregular applied with a fine brush. Works well on matt and dark surfaces.
  4. Hi Will, your Moth is simply perfect. Perfect in built and painting this lil`gem. The paintsheme is very attractive and let the small model looks like nobly. The arrangement of the the scenery is wonderful and the outdoor pictures are very atmospheric. Great job and absolutely motivating Dirk
  5. Great to see such a nice built X-15 in scale 48. Have this kit in my stash and it`s, nevertheless it is a short run, one of my topics. Thx for sharing Dirk
  6. Hi Russ, the paintsheme is really nice and attractive! Very clean built and perfect weathering. I like it a lot. The revetment section behind your model reminds me to a product of Marc Toillie in France. I`ve used these products made out of ceramics with my Cessna O-19 Birddog in scale 48. ( he produced also the typical US steel plankings for the floor) Unfortunately, these products are not available any more. What brand did you used? It is very nice to see finished models of the Viet-conflict. Makes me a lil bit sentimental, above all one considers that Verlinden has closed the doors forever. And therefore also many useful Vietnam Dio accessories are not available any more. And as a last question, what kits do you recommend in scale 48 to built an AD-4W? What can you say about the old Esci kit? Many thx in advance and thx for sharing Dirk
  7. Martin, that is unbelieveable, will say breathtaking. Paint brushed?? Chapeau, that`s truly a superb job. Think it needs a lot of patience for all those multible layers of colour. Thx for sharing Dirk

  12. Really, the pictures of your models are always very inspiring for me! One gets every time big desire for modelling a kit! Round about a pleasure and always a look worth! Thx for sharing. Dirk
  13. It is not so easy to paint this sort of paint sheme. Above all in combination with white colour. You have achieved a wonderful appearnce. I like it a lot. Dirk
  14. I can support only the previously comments, an attractive model of an unambiguously and unique aircraft. Well done! Dirk
