      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. It was The hotel Mrs. Gremlin56 and I stayed at was an old brewery and the owner still brewed a local beer, 10.5 % alcohol called "Breeze Bold" and my golly it was I would have given an arm or leg if this poster had been for sale at the museum: Of course it wasn't. I did buy a small collection of "Breeze" beers to help me in the difficult times looking for inspiration Oops, nearly forgot this: The phantom Spitfire. This isn't the Spitfire I am building simultaneously with the JT, this one is a museum piece but probably wrong as well. Paint job sucks and someone clipped it's wings: So of course the paint shade is wrong, the clipped wings are not in IPMS harmony with a Spitfire mark IX ( the museum said it, I didn't Sir, please not the cane......................). Nice bird though despite the repaint with ghastly mat paint.
  2. Let me think this over Keith
  3. Immaculate brushwork Mrs. Stix, looking excellent.
  4. A very aggressive looking beastie Etienne, gorgeous work
  5. Thanks Keith, Francis, As I mentioned before I visited the `Winged Liberators` museum in Best this week, dedicated to the `Market Garden` operation that took place near it. Got some rather inspirational photos of the colors and weathering that the exhibits show ( of course keeping in mind that the tracks are rusty due to the Sherman being parked outside and some of the exhibits have been stripped and repainted since WW II. Still nice reference though. Lots more but not sure where to post them
  6. Watch out you don't end up buying all the different products or you'll end up with a workbench full of different washes, primers, filters, pigments etc.
  7. I did a blog at Jimbo's site when the Typhoon was first released: Picture heavy and rather long but this is what happened Richard
  8. You have been very busy Simon, I won't mention the mirrored gear door (I am quite capable of doing exactly the same ). Looks like you are heading in to finals now, cheers, Julian
  9. A very nice build, like your style of painting. What paints do you use and how do you achieve this effect? cheers, Julian
  10. Thank you Simon, layer upon layer
  11. 26/4 update. Adding oil washes to the JT. The light sand is slowly getting a darker tint:
  12. A very tardy answer to all the reactions to Judy's build due to a short visit to the south of Holland with Mrs. Gremlin56. Took time out to visit the Winged Liberators museum near Best while I was there. Thanks John, working on the weathering of HD Judy, cheers, Julian Thank you very much Phil, appreciate the look in at Judy, Bless you Stix, thank you very much Thank you Cesar, very much appreciated and very kind, cheers, Julian Thanks Richard, I'll be posting more photo's today. cheers Julian
