      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. Very nice! What color(s) would be in the Hessian net? Natural shades or was it dyed different colors? G
  2. This camo was just starting to come into use as I left the Marine Corps (1978). The above photo is a great example of "gray desert" MERDC. To be truthful, as a west coast Marine, I only saw "summer verdant" and "gray desert". This would coincide with the large desert training areas out west as well as what was, at the time, thought to be a threat area (Pacific rim). Years later the PD I was with took charge of a few surplus US Army trucks. All were painted in "winter verdant" colors except one was "Summer verdant" The US 7th Army tested camo called MASSTER in Europe at the same time. That is also illustrated on the above listed web site. I say all this because i believe it drives home a point. There were a variety of colors schemes in use at any given time based on geography. G
  3. One of the restored monument tanks is dark gray. I found a narrative which indicates this was not the original color, but was used as a nod to WWII Germany. Some photos seem to show a dark color, others a medium shade. One restored example is sand colored. Best guess, green. A medium olive green. (think 4BO Russian green only a bit darker) The remainder of the Spanish army's vehicles were that color. It seems to fade to a gray green color similar to sage green. G
  4. Very, very nice! G
  5. You are making this old girl sing! G
  6. I'll be following this intently! The only one I ever saw was undergoing testing in Yuma, Arizona. Half the time it had to be towed into position first. Rumor was the complex electronics of the fire control system were incompatible with the automotive systems of the base tank. When It was tested "publicly" great care was taken to have the vehicle pre-positioned on level ground. Apparently there's a huge difference between an F-16 and an M-48 tank. Who would have thought? G
  7. I fully agree with everything you have said! Of course I had to go look at my stash and built ups to see if I missed anything! Enough already, let's get back to John's wonderful build. G
  8. Very nice! G
  9. So why does the DML Sherman A2 kit, or the Sherman III kit not represent the Fischer build type? G
  10. Beautiful build sir! Elaborate on this please. I'm truly not familiar with the topic, other than Fischer built small hatch A2's had the welded hoods. G
  11. https://wwiiafterwwii.wordpress.com/2016/09/04/panzers-in-the-golan-heights/ More than you ever wanted to know. G
  12. Almost a shame to paint this with all that wonderful work! G
  13. Superb build sir! You cannot have too many Shermans. G
  14. http://www.mafva.net/other pages/starmer camo.htm I'm thinking "Light Mud" with a SCC 14 pattern is what you are after for that time period. G
  15. That is exactly what I remember. Marvelous work sir. G
