      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. Very cool build of the 747. She's flying in the perfect Sky and background...
  2. Very nice build and the "with something else" pics are a real treat.I esp. like the HS748 among them. I have an incomplete 1/72 vac-form Ambassador kit.Still collectig bits and pieces to complete it some day... Ray from 26 made me a new "BKS" decal sheet for this scale some time ago,so I am one step closer but still missing the Motors..
  3. Sorry to hear about the drawback.I know very well how that feels...But I am sure all your work will pay off in the end and a superb result will emerge.
  4. Hardly to believe they have been around 50 years already and still going strong. I still favour the 737 over the Airbuses for the next 50 years....
  5. Superb build
  6. Beautiful build.The british Airways scheme Looks superb on the 767. I like those Hasegawa LL200 airliners a lot as well. I have still a bigger number in my stash and currently having a 767-200 under construction that will come in the Delta widget livery.
  7. I know kosciuv,very reliable. I did not lose any money from F-DECAL but a few times came the decals in the wrong scale and the replacements took weeks to month until I received them.And mostly no answer to my emails in acceptable time.My last order took over 6 months to arrive.Its not that I am not patient but this was not acceptable. I actually didnt want to order from him again but I have a defective 1/100 travel agency DC-10-30 model in Finnair colors that I want to repair and repaint.And he is the only one who offers Finnair DC-10 decals.
  8. The first MD-11 kit is currently under construction. Fit is decent but the parts need a fair share of cleaning before they can be assambled and filler is needed in almost every part to get a seamless look. The parts are actually nicely molded and the kit is well detailed,the overdid it on the landing gear though. Anyway I am enjoying this build and it wont be the last. 3 of the GE engined kits already in my stash,now awaiting the same number for the P&W version.
  9. Well that looks to become another winner there Phil. I am surprised that you already received your decals from F-DCAL. I had my fair share of troubles and issues on almost all my orders from him...maybe he came to senses and rethought his business management...? I stay tuned for more updates Alex
  10. Nice result for your first build and a warm welcome to the wonderful world of (airliner)-model building. And an extra as its one of my favourite airliners Keep 'em coming
  11. Looks great.Top paintwork again. Have you ever tried Tamyia primer ? It dries fast,30 mins.approx. if sprayed in light coats,and you can do virtually everything to it without doing any harm.The white primer, if polished up,gives also a very nice white and the grey one is a bit thicker and helps closing small gaps too.I only use Tamyia primer on all my builds with great results.
  12. Very nice build. I always liked the TU-154.I really miss seeing (and hearing) this bird on our airports. It was a frequent visitor on Swiss airports for many years.
  13. Thank you. The speedlimit was because of the heat during supersonic flights. Thats why all Concordes where mostly overall white with only the logos and titles in their respective colors.
  14. Very nice.Having two of this kit in my stash its nice to see the Airfix kit built up.
  15. Wonderful builds. The A320 looks very neat in BCAL livery.Sadly it never made it into service that way. The Viscount is beautiful too. And thank you for the info about the decal application.Might come in handy some day
