      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. Serial looks like 33ZR70 to me.
  2. Yes the price (in the UK anyway) is a little steep, but I will have to have the RAF version!
  3. Whoo Hoo more Mosquitoes, you cant have too many of Hatfield's finest!!!
  4. There soon will be
  5. The Horsa was designed at Salisbury Hall and the first pair were built there.
  6. And what about Airspeed, it being a wholly owned subsidiary of de H from 1940!
  7. Hmmmm bit of a minefield that one, I would go along with the 146, as it was built at Hatfield with a workforce that was still dominated by de H (my father did almost 40 years at Hatfield, de H/HS/BAe) and it is numbered in the old de H series but presumably that then excludes any Woodford (Avro) assembled 146 airframes and the later RJ's, although the front fuse was still Hatfield built?
  8. Hmmmm why not make it as an RAF F-4J(UK) and then wait for the Airfix FG.1 later this year?
  9. Some neat FAA airmen coming from CMK on there, not cheap though!!
  10. I've got many Hawker subjects waiting to get built, from an Audax or two to hawks and a Nimrod, so count me in on this one please!
  11. I use Ikea Billy bookcases with glass shelves and glass doors.
  12. Some, well at least XS711, did wear that colour scheme Adey!
  13. I'll second that about the Argosy, I have two of the Mach 2 in the stash and haven't had the confidence to start them yet!
  14. Great build of the old Airfix Land Rover!
  15. Another vote for Billy bookcases with glass shelves (and glass doors), I already have a couple as display cabinets (and will need another soon) just a shame they don't do the 500mm deep ones any more!!
