      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 Bernd, i see @PlaStix having quite a bit of fun spinning props, I thought I would give it a go. I like figures they Bring thing to life, however my eyes will need a little assistance if I did anything smaller. Thanks Greg, you definitely get everything in the box, It's building really well, I don't build that many aircraft but this is the second aircraft I've built with no guide pins to help line things up. Not sure if this is the norm? The spinning prop should look great when it's all mounted, with the crew getting ready to scramble to intercept a formation of B-17's.
  2. A small update, I've got the cockpit built and also the instrument panel. I got the prop wired up too, I'm just waiting for a battery box to arrive to allow for the wires to be connected before I close up the fuselage. I've also painted a couple of the figures and put the various flaps on to. Look closely for the spinning prop.
  3. Nice looking tiger, I used a PE zimmermit set on a panther I built, I found the large bits a little un nerving at first. Dragon do a couple of Michael wittmann figures.
  4. Good luck Malcolm, for your first session at Tedworth house tomorrow. I'm looking forward to assisting you on Wednesday evening.
  5. Nice job, can't say I've ever used talc.
  6. Your more than welcome to pop in for a brew, as I said with the 2 sets I've used I have had no problems with.
  7. Nice use of the grass Matt on the roofing, looks very effective.
  8. Ive used a few of the HATAKA sets recently, they have had mixed reviews but I've had no problems with them.
  9. I saw a sea vixen fly over Larkhill heading north east between 500-700ft, about 1130.
  10. Nice paint work, did you use your airbrush?
  11. Live got a few like that, I just tend to paint the face in one tone and that's as far as I go.
  12. Nice job on the engine George, I can't believe your worried about figure painting.
  13. That looks like a problem you can do without, as you said the engine is part of the kit you would think it would fit.
  14. Thanks Bernd, I will keep a lookout for them. I must admit I like figure painting, I mainly build 1:35 kits when I opened the box with the figures in I got a bit of a shock. I thought they were under scaled until I realised they were 1:48, by all means tag along with what I've built so far it's building into a nice kit. My only issue is there are no guide pins on my he kit, i did get the wings lined up ok after a little bit of wiggling.
