      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. Thanks. I have the Kuivalainen JG5 1/72 109E decal set and have found them great to use.
  2. Most likely in Finnish colours or a JG5 scheme.
  3. I would like to join if I may. I have many 109 kits in the stash, half a dozen of those are in 1/32 scale. I have not yet built a 1/32 kit so this may be the incentive to start one. E,F or G. Hmmmm..........
  4. Another splendid build. I do like to see a clean machine.
  5. Well done getting over the line. Splendid rendition of a great little plane.
  6. Mmmmmm.............. Beer. Homer is the king. Great job
  7. I love seeing these lesser built Italian types, and your Breda looks fantastic. Bravo !!
  8. Great work on this !! I am a bit of a fan of the Reggiane fighters, and built this kit a couple of years back. Good to see some lesser fighter types nicely modelled.
  9. What a little ripper! I have one of these in the stash, with hopes to get it half as convincing as your effort. Well done.
  10. Happy Birthday Rob. Its a great little kit. I have one on the go at the moment (unfortunately too much started before the GB), and completed this one a little while ago. Yet another Airfix Hurricane (RYAF) The trailing edges of the wings are on the thick side, and would benefit from some thinning before being glued together. You may need to fill and smooth the join so it looks like one piece. Fabric behind the gun access panels may or may not be correct. I still cant find a conclusive argument or evidence. Replacement of the incorrect wheels is a great move. Enjoy a great little kit.
  11. I too just found this. If it is put forward for a third try, I am in for sure. If not, I will soldier on building all the well known WW2 Aeronautica subjects, and maybe fit them into other group builds.
  12. Thanks for the kind words. I went with the easy build Hobby Boss kit because reviews on the Revell offering didn't seem very favourable. At least the Revell kit comes with machine guns, inner gear doors and a pitot tube (which I forgot to add to my build oops!). It (Revell) has raised panel lines a worse canopy and prop, not at the HB standard. I do believe Kora make early and late model wing correction sets to suit the Revell kit (more expensive than the kit though). If I can find a Special Hobby kit, I will build one of them. Hahaha ! Ooops. It was only after I posted the pics up that I realised I had left the seam on both sides of the cowling, the leading edge of the entire wing, and a small knobby bit just forward of the tail wheel. Just a few things on the list to fix next time. Wayne.
  13. Macchi C200 easy build kit from HobbyBoss. 362 Squadriglia, 22 Gruppo Russia 1941 This kit has pretty good shape, but skips many important details. I attempted to add the missing parts, and in the process picked up some ideas on how to build another one more efficiently, and with better detail. All out of box except the cockpit from a Hasagawa C202, with tape belts. Starboard wing cut and shortened to replicate asymmetrical design. Drop of canopy glue for rear navigation light. Styrene scratch built inner landing gear doors and (wire) retraction arms (none in kit). Styrene scratched top centre cowling piece (not in kit). Tyres flattened and bulged by heating. Machine guns (a bit too thick) made from steel wire (none in kit). Exhaust manifold (in behind cowling) made from bent stretched sprue. Air intake at bottom of cowling made from cut up Hasegawa C202 part and shaped sprue (not in kit). Wheel wells ground out to better represent the actual aircraft, a bit of detail added. Painted with Tamiya acrylic. Thanks for looking.
  14. This looks very nice and understated. I particularly like the subtle fuselage mottle and blending of the greens into the grey. Lovely.
  15. Been a while, but I have done all I am going to do on the Hobbyboss C200 Saetta. I decided in the end to go with the box supplied decals as the Sky Models decal set would have required a slight change to the paint scheme. Decals went on fine, though the colours seem a little too bright. Parts NOT supplied by Hobbyboss include : Guns made from wire (a bit too big for the gun troughs). Inner undercarriage doors made from sheet styrene, with the retraction arms made from breadth wire. Top centre cowl panel (styrene). Stretched and bent sprue to attempt to resemble exhaust manifold inside engine cowl flaps. Tyres were heated then squashed to get weighted look. Canopy glue to make tail navigation light. A couple of finished pics. The rest will be in RFI. Thanks for looking.
