      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. Thanks for the info Julien, I don't often call on the search function. Chris
  2. I thought this topic had come up before, but I couldn't locate it with the search function. In fact I thought I had done this posting under general discussion. cheers Chris
  3. One for the collective. Of all Tomcats on the market( 1/72nd scale), whose gets top vote. Fujimi, Hasegawa or A.N. other. thanks guys. Chris
  4. Thanks to all at Milton Keynes, had a really good show. Chris
  5. No bump from anyone even though the shows tomorrow, Paul normally lets us know the cars loaded, is there a last minute cancellation? Just checking
  6. This is one of the last kits Martin produced number 9772, my last one went 2 months ago. However Neil Gaunt is now producing this conversion in his AIM range so a check on Hannants site should produce the goods.
  7. Then why is it under the WWII section and not in General Discussion!!. Please Mods how many more of these?
  8. I should look more closely I thought this was a re-release of the Yumo G4 Super Galeb. I wonder where that mould went.?
  9. Hi

    Good for you lady, glad to see your back and on the up.
  10. I'm relieved its not only where I live, my wife pointed the hanging bags out as we went shopping the other day. I thought it was unique to the lane we're in.
  11. Tricky one this, my optician recommended I had varifocals to cover my reading, VDU use (which I already had glasses for) and latterly my driving, which like Scimitar I was covering long distances. All seemed ok initially until about a week into the new glasses whilst approaching a roundabout I lifted my head up and viewed the world through the reading portion, and completely lost sight of the car coming round the roundabout towards me. The glasses instantly came off and I went back to separate driving glasses.
  12. Hi Lee Which Paragon sets are we discussing? I've got two off 7229 which has the PR & bomber canopies and one off 7233 the NF XV conversion, though the canopy in that one has yellowed. Are you WHIF'ers at Modelkraft?. Chris
  13. Gerrard there is a dedicated section in the general discussion section titled members wishlist.!!!
  14. Phil Note this kit has an engine nacelle missing. You would need to do a repro using one of the remaining three. hth cheers Chris Thinks! The Aviation Megastore might be the only source of a Belfast, I recall Radleigh obtained one from there.
  15. The children don't even have the same weeks off these days in this area according to my daughter. Surrey and Hampshire have two weeks holiday over a three week period and East & West Berks take different weeks off as well. No wonder people get fined for the holiday arrangements.
