      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. If you are going to Cosford on Sunday look us up. Aside of our entire book range (including the very last copy of Airframe Album No 2-The Hawker Sea Fury) we will have a good selection of Mr Hobby paint and materials including a few bottles of very elusive Levelling Thinner. See you there.
  2. Well, what do you know...Airframe Album No 11 on The Fieseler Storch is now bigger-much bigger. Owing to the the weight of images and material for this book we have had to increase its size by 32 pages to a whopping 128 pages plus covers. A lot of the information contained has never been seen before in print so enthusiasts are in for a real treat. This has meant that we have had to adjust the cover price to £17.95 RRP per copy. However all pre-ordered copies will be honoured at the original price of £16.95 per copy. Furthermore anyone placing an order before publication will be able to get their copy at the pre-order price of £16.95 AND save on postage. Publication is due on the 21st, so what are you waiting for? If you are going to either Bovingdon or Huddersfield at the weekend you can preorder there too.
  3. If you are outside the UK and planning to order any of our books in time for Christmas the latest recommended posting dates overseas have now passed, Cut off date for most EU countries is tomorrow. UK final posting date is Wednesday 21st December. To ensure delivery on time all UK orders will be sent first class post. So if you need anything from us before Christmas now is the time to order it.
  4. Off to Scale Modelworld tomorrow to set up our stand for the weekend. We're in Hall 1, so feel free to drop by. It will be the first public airing of our brand new Do 335 book and Airframe Extra No 6 on The Continuation War. We'll have a weekend only bundle deal if you buy all Airframe Extra titles, there's 25% off all accessories and we'll have our crop of Eduard vinyl masks at only 50p each. And we've added more Mr Hobby and Mr Color paints to our paint rack. See you there.
  5. As I say to everyone. Buy 'em when they are in print.
  6. Now that we have access to our storage unit at weekends, on Saturday 13th August (that's next Saturday) Valiant Wings Publishing opens its warehouse doors to model clubs for a one day only Open Day buying event. Times 10.30am to 4pm Location: Willow House, 16 Shuttleworth Road MK41 0EP 10% off all books in print, including book bundles 10% off Mr Hobby paint and materials 33% off remaining Quickboost and Barracudacast items 20% off Valiant Wings accessories 10% off Eduard vinyl masks 10% off all marked kit prices-new, secondhand and classic We will have our new Spanish Civil War title available in time for the event. Over a dozen model clubs within an hour's drive of Bedford have been invited. Full details are with club secretaries and organisers. Bedford itself has much to offer with two other dedicated hobby outlets, good pubs and eateries in town (2 hours free parking on Saturdays) and Cardington hangars and the Shuttleworth Collection close by. Why not make a day of it? See you there.
  7. Well, would you credit it? Furtling though our warehouse we found another two boxes of Airframe Album No 2-The Hawker Sea Fury. And we thought they'd all gone. However we've only got 80 copies of our Hawker Tempest book left so if you have the Special Hobby kit on the bench now is the time to grab a copy. Our Bv 141 book is now down to under 100 copies too. AE5-The Spanish Civil War arrives with us next Monday.
  8. Our new Mosquito book gets its first public airing at Coventry and Warwickshire's IPMS show this Sunday. Come and see us and grab a copy for yourself. We'll also have our clutch of Mr Hobby paint and materials for you to stock up-see you there.
  9. It will be waiting for you Christian.
  10. Airframe & Miniature No 8-The de Havilland Mosquito Part 12 was delivered in to us at 9.00am. And all pre-ordered copies were delivered in to Royal Mail before 4pm. All day full on packing and labelling Phew. I need a drink.It's the trade copies tomorrow.
  11. The de Havilland Mosquito Part 1 is now on press. We start mailing on Monday. We've made some changes to the C&M section and are running Richard Caruana's profiles as part of it. We've got 28 side views. 4 top views and full stencil data. That should keep you all happy. Pre-order postage off has been extended to the end of this week so there is still time to save on mailing costs and get a chance to win a big HK Mosquito kit. The book has gone up in size to 192 pages from 176 but cover price remains at £18.95. And it is all new-not a rehash in sight.
  12. Apologies to those of you who attended the Gloucester show but did not see us there. Richard Franks had a tyre blow out on his car caused by a broken suspension spring on the way to the show. so he could not make the trip. Normal service to be resumed at the rest of our shows this month.
  13. Excellent-see you there.
  14. A a loose end this Sunday? Well,Valiant Wings are in two places at once. For the first time ever we have a pitch in one of the hangars at Old Warden for the Shuttleworth Season Premiere airshow where we will have our entire inventory on show. Come and see us there. If you'd rather stay close to home in the West Country we'll be at the IPMS Gloucester show where Richard Franks will be selling our books and extolling the virtues of Mr Hobby paint and materials. Feel free to drop by.
  15. Modelkraft 2016 is on Sunday 24th and we will be there with our latest book, Airframe Album No 9-The Arado Ar 234, along with the rest of our titles. It'll be one of the last opportunities to pick up copies of our Airframe Album book on the Sea Fury and Airframe Constructor on The He 219 before they sell out-we are down to single figures on both. Plus you can stock up on Mr Hobby paint and materials and get your pre-order in for our forthcoming brand new book on the Mosquito. See you there.
