      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. Glad to see you have both got your threads started! Very much looking forward to following both. Only one day in the way before we can start!!! Kind regards, Stix
  2. Great looking idea for a project Craig! Lovely colourful scheme too! Looking forward to seeing this in progress. Kind regards, Stix
  3. Great job Andy! They look excellent. I picked up these two kits last week in a model shop in Brum and now, having seen yours, can't wait to make them! Very well done. Kind regards, Stix
  4. Hi Bernd. Glad you are well and I will keep checking back for any more progress. Kind regards, Stix
  5. Looking forward to seeing this one in progress and I like the sound of your idea for the presentation. Kind regards, Stix
  6. Hi Bernd. Hope you are well. Just checking if there's been any more progress on these two? Kind regards, Stix
  7. Hi Stu. That looks great! Very well done! I hadn't heard of Modelcollect until I picked up their T-64 Mod.1972 for the 70s Nato vs Warsaw Pact GB. I thought it was a really nicely detailed kit in 1/72 and it looks like your's was too. My T-64 kit was also supposed to have band tracks but came with link and length ones instead - mine seemed to be the correct ones for the kit though. Having seen your build of this kit I may try and get one of them. Well done again. Kind regards, Stix
  8. Great Hellcat Steve! Looks just the job! Kind regards, Stix
  9. Hi Nigel - I really like Tamiya 1/48 kits so to me it's less of a challenge but a joy to look forward to. As I mentioned above they are going to be pretty much OOB so I don't have to worry about etch either! Must admit I have enjoyed making my recent Mosquito but I am really looking forward to building some armour again! Yeah, yeah, yeah............after your superb Yak Firebar we would all be massively missing out on your Su9-U! Probably be better if I put mine to one side and followed yours! You two made me smile! What with Glynn's wonderful Firebar and your superb Mig-25, your incredibly beautiful builds are a real treat to follow! I'm hoping you are both taking part in this GB as I'm looking forward to following your projects! On Saturday I got the SU122 out to to wash so I took some photos - box contents: Individual sprues - there are two of this one: The metal lower hull: Closer view of the upper hull: Decals: Sample of the instructions: ....including version painting guides: Well there's only 5 days to go until I can get these started......still can't wait! Kind regards, Stix
  10. Great idea for a project Cookie and cutting up kits in your first post - wow! Don't mess with Cookie! Kind regards, Stix
  11. Absolutely stunning paintwork Craig and I do like your panel line wash - nicely and subtly emphasises the detail. Kind regards, Stix
  12. That really is looking superb Julian! The camo looks absolutely amazing! Stunning model building and detailing on show as always! Kind regards, Stix
  13. Definitely very impressive improvements to the kit. Very nicely done. Kind regards, Stix
  14. Fantastic progress!! It really is looking superb! Amazing modelling skills! Kind regards, Stix
