      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".

  7. Cheers Davide, thanks! I will try vacforming, just not tonight, too tired. I'll be off for the weekend, so I'll get back to this on Monday Ciao
  8. Great airbrush tutorial, Cookie! Ciao
  9. Cheers Cookie, thanks! I normally put the gunsight in place as one of the last things too, but in this case I feared I would drop it into the cockpit (it's a tricky fit with the resin/PE IP) and never be able to recover it again... Ciao
  10. Looking forward to that! Ciao
  11. Steve the alchemist ... Ciao
  12. Small update; before gluing the bottom seam, I scratch built a quick protection for the cockpit opening from cardboard, to avoid knocking off the gunsight while handling the model (I know myself ... ) Then i glued the bottom seam While it cured, it was time to catch up with the C205 parts. Bulkhead first, but I goofed a bit here: the backing plate came out OK, but the cut through the rounded part went south: so I thought of scratch building it from lead foil (usual wine cap foil) CA glue on the black part and left overnight to set; I might also tryingvacforming for this part - because of thickness. Will see. Dry fit of the C205 fuselage halves and cockpit floor plus seat: More tomorrow, hopefully Ciao
  13. I think you'll have to play with settings a but, Ced Ciao
