      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. Hi Joss I, am building one of the trumpeter tribal class at the minute Huron and they are very good value for money small amount of PE but no railings Take a look in the work in progress section and you can see what I have done I will also be doing Eskimo for more practice with these kits as I too am just really starting to get into 1/350 as I find some of the 1/700 to small for my old eyes Beefy
  2. Why not send them to the other Julien the walk around moderator All he does is walk around all day give him something to do with his time and give his little feet a rest Beefy
  3. Small up date Pom Pom built up why did I think of doing it that way Got to admit it was hard work very delicate but it does look better Also started to add the mast Halyards using thin copper wire from a old relay And painted the name plate up Beefy
  4. Hi Rob I,am considering the Fairmile D the one with the shark teeth on the bow as per your book referance photo but they are all great kits already have the BPC 466MTB Hope to pick up some tips and info from your build Beefy
  5. Building up those washes slow and steady Eddy I mean Julian The color tones are really starting to stand out now or less is more as some might say I think you know what I mean Beefy
  6. Thanks Rob Well been working on the aft mast used some brass tube and the kit PE for the antennas Also made a start on the 4 barrel Pom Pom what was I thinking Next to the kit parts Beefy

  8. Certainly is different. Beefy
  9. I have added a layer of Making Waves and when this was dry I added wight to the wake swell will now add another coat of the making waves to seal it all in Beefy
  10. Yes I found this out when doing the LWS build when I thought I was going for an easy option ended up having to go back and lighten the shades with white and pale yellow washes to give it a dusty effect but still learned from the experience thanks to some helpful advice Beefy
  11. Great looking Zombies I thought it was a re make of Michael Jacksons Thriller video Beefy
  12. Love a good Sherman build great work Beefy
  13. Another stunner there Andy Beefy
  14. The build up of the layers is looking good Julian Must admit I thought the base yellow was bright but as you said before the washes will bring it all together and it is The outside of Judy is starting to look just as good as the inside even better with a great big dirty rear end Beefy
  15. Thanks Andy and Geoff feel free to use the idea hope you have a lot of fun with it OK got the rails all fitted and the ships boats I know that the kit ones are incorrect so I have covered in tissue also I have used a generic rail set from Atlantic models so that I can use the rails out of the tribal set for my Eskimo build Ship now setting in more silicone and then I can add rigging and the 4 barrel Pom Pom Beefy
