      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 nice and very 1/72 Martin
  2. Nice 1/72 Martin
  3. I've always loved the Condor, since I built a Revell one in the 1970s, and yours certainly looks the part. Very nice. Martin
  4. 1/72 strikes again! Martin
  5. I'd still like a similar U-series, with all fin options in 1/72! Martin
  6. I just want them to bring out a U/UM/US now Martin
  7. Hi all! i need some advice based on your experiences. I have to say that Jens has been helpful but I am still paining over the first coat! i have my Super Sabre nearly ready for a green coat but I am still not sure what colours to use and I'd value your advice, thoughts, experiences. i use Humbrol enamels. I know that in the real world they were painted FS24079. However, almost every photo I've seen, and even my own from my early days, shows a blue-grey tone once the paint has faded. I have lightened Humbrol 116 but it goes a light yellowish-tinted colour. What advice do the collective have? thanks. Martin
  8. That is very, very nice! A great subject. Martin
  9. A very nice 'Raider :). Martin
  10. I agree completely. Of course, we all model for different reasons and not everyone wants to do the research and prefers to simply build OOB. It takes all sorts to make the kaleidascope of variation we see here. Martin
  11. Those are great builds and very attractive machines. A credit to you. As has been said before, it is great to see different schemes. Martin
  12. Nice... And the kit is? 1/72? Martin
  13. What an international group we are! Martin
