      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. The passengers look a little leery of that (to them) giant scraper, but it's only going to get them on their flying tour of your office that much sooner. I'm with you on the Mr Surfacer Ced, I've just started using slathered paint as a substitute for very fine scratches.
  2. I can't tell you how heartening it is to have three Britmodellers such as yourselves appreciate my efforts. HA! I try to use such strong terms only for the most important of matters, such as tiny 1/72 parts that are off by a mm or two.
  3. That looks fantastic Will.
  4. Inspiring stuff John, the Italeri nose seems to match up just fine at that point (well ahead of the bomb bay).
  5. If nature were just, ten days seems like it should be enough - very frustrating.
  6. Those look fantastic Rob, your thread has lived up to its name!
  7. That's looking great Ced, I think that having "the gang all here" in the fuselage was very well worth the effort.
  8. Thanks John, I confirmed the NMF before starting the thread. What year did they begin to go over to ADC grey? I noticed that ANG B-57's were definitely grey. Ooooh, your C-119 metal finish is sure to impress Tony - although you may have been referring to the tiny 1/72 coffee mugs for the crew that you're sure to include at this rate. Thanks Mr Wobbly Hands, I hope it turns out worthy of your attention!
  9. Wonderful build Tony, and thanks for the background on Rabaul in 1941/42.
  10. A fantastic collection LC! As mentioned above, I had no idea that the Sea Vixen was so gigantic.
  11. Beautiful Spitfire Bill. I don't think Mk IX's had antenna wires, the antenna was contained in the mast. I think some very early IX's had the IFF wires going from the fuselage to the tips of the horizontal stabilizers, but that wouldn't be the case for a post-war Israeli Spitfire. Of course, I'm willing to be proven wrong.
  12. Very cool Tim. You've done a great job capturing all the variations of the greys involved. I especially love the drop tanks.
  13. Sorry to hear about your cat Jamie. The 'like' is for the paint.
  14. A nice bonus mid-week update, thanks Giemme. I like your cardboard cockpit cover. That's way better than my method of waiting until the end to place the gunsights and then forgetting to do so (they never get broken off though).
  15. Brilliant surgery Baron, and well explained to boot.
