      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. I just built the Trumpeter Su-11, so you are in for a good build. Sometimes simple and straightforward is good. My BMF finish is a coat of Tamiya AS-12 from the spray-can and , after drying and masking a few panels, a coat of TS-17....simple and effective!
  2. Just apply Hawkeye decals as per normal, I have used them several times with no issues.
  3. Thank you, xvtonker, I am determined to finish my Victor with retracted RAT's (!). I model everything as "starting take off roll", and perhaps no one can say we are wrong! I've read a couple of Victor books recently, and am loving Airfix's model of this amazing 'plane... Thanks!!
  4. Thanks, everyone, I am just going to get used to those things sticking up like that - certainly an "interesting" looking aircraft!
  5. Just putting the finishing touches to the fabulous Airfix Victor B.2 and I am wondering........ I have not seen a picture of a Victor B.2 on the ground with the ram-air turbine inlets in the flush position. They really spoil the looks of this enigmatic aircraft, in my view, and I want to model them "flush"....... Yes/no maybe?
  6. Airfix, for mine. They produce new moulds that people want ,they are affordable, and the build quality has improved immeasurably recently. The Victor might be a prime example.
  7. Definitely not finished, but just too add a little more flavour to this thread! I really like the old Monograms, particularly the Century Series. Found an OLD set of micro-scale decals on the net. I'll put another picture up when it's finished, and I brush up on my Photo. skills!
  8. I'll see if I can get something up in the "near" future.....!!
  9. Beautiful, just love the old Monograms....... Completing a "Hawk One Canada" version at the moment....
  10. Great read, thanks! I was a "Frog-man" in the late '50's, my first model was the original Frog interior, no radiator, and I recently acquired a copy! The Airfix Lancaster at 19/6d was my holy grail for many years!
  11. I use PB on Chrome with an ad blocker........... no problems.
  12. I had trouble throwing out the Sprue Frames (!!) from my Airfix Victor.....let alone the box, which of course is a big, sturdy "keeper".
  13. '50's kid here, Cuban Missile Crisis, X-15 flights, 4/9d Airfix series 1.........Well done! I would need a main-stream kit to do it justice! Airfix, X-15, SR-53........!!
  14. Yes, those pilots are a lot healthier than the original original pilots, which pretty much looked like matchsticks with the wood scraped off!!
  15. Beautiful, I have actually been to Monino and had a close up look at this monster! Did the cut -out Canopy and Nose masking supplied work out well for you, or did you use conventional methods?
