      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".

  6. My mistake,thanks for the correction
  7. Good afternoon everyone,below are some photo's of the latest finished build.It was a beautiful morning so I decided to go for some outside shots. The kit is an old 1980's monogram 1/48 catalina which I picked up off ebay from the states.The kit was ok to build,little bit of filler here and there but generally ok.The big downside being the flimsiest wheels/undercarriage for a big plane you will come across. The kit was built totally out of the box and as usual all brush painted with standard humbrol enamels. All comments positive or negative greatly received.
  8. Very nice clean build.
  9. First class.
  11. that's just huge,i thought the 1/48 was big,great build
