      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. Always watched him and Tony Curtis in The Persuaders and like most people he made some great James Bond movies, Live and Let Die and The Man with the Golden Gun. Robert
  2. On page 18 of this thread. The post from Dennis
  3. The Xtradecal have been released but still have not been corrected. Would have been a sheet to buy but not as it stands.
  4. I just use the plastic cable ties you can buy from Poundland.
  5. I was really pleased when Airfix was doing the early jets in the one true scale, Skyhawk, Harriers, Vampires, Lightnings and I bought more than a few of each. In the past couple of years they have not produced anything I am interested in enough to buy. Most of my recent purchases are from the Far East or European makers. OK they have a Phantom coming out later in the year but I have a few Fujimi ones in the stash and would be unlikely to buy multiples. Roll on 2018.
  6. So the UK can only get this from abroad, oh hum....... Robert
  7. Tamiya new 1/32 F4U-1D/FG-1D as posted on ARC. Seems to be taken from the Tamiya stand, although I stand to be corrected.
  8. Over on ARC it looks like there will be an announcement from Tamiya. Nothing on their blog at the moment. Robert
  9. Yes I have watched the trailer and find it enough to pique my interest. I noticed that it is being directed by Denis Villeneuve who did a great job on Arrival. I am going to see it when it comes out at the IMAX in London. Off to see Aliens Covenant next week at the same place. Robert

  12. Wonder what the pre order priced will be, 5000 is a lot of kits if the price is not right. Also being in the UK we will not see it until 2018 the way kits are distributed to us. Robert
  13. Hello next installment. I have completed the forward fuselage, masked the canopy and stuck it on As the wings are going to be swept back I have constructed the moving parts forward of the wing to fuselage join. It needs some filler and plasticard as I wanted the leading edges to be kept straight as possible. I also completed the undercarriage unit, pushed the wheels on and and tested the fit into the undercarriage bay. I tackled the exhaust next. Painted the insides Tamiya's NATO black then used Tamiya's Orange Rust weathering powder inside. The other parts was sprayed with various Vallejo Metal Color with the insides treated as above, then test fitted into the rear fuselage. May have to darken it a tad, looks too clean. Next will be the wings and joining the front fuselage to the rear part and the intakes. Thanks for looking. Robert
  14. Excellent work there Phil those PE vanes and the paint work looks great.
  15. That does look lovely.
