      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. Me 262 from Blue Oyster Cults Secrets album cover ....🎸
  2. Cool! You gonna add a Spitfire from the excellent Aces High single cover too?? 😉 Your 747 looks fantastic btw. Cheers Greg
  3. Well worth considering Kaplan, if you like a challenge. Cheers Greg
  4. Thank you Procopius! I totally agree. It was a real pain getting past all the other obstacles to find that nasty surprise at the end. Cheers Greg
  5. Hi Kaplan, There's lots of extras in this kit - canopies, tail and tailplanes, rockets, seat armour, bomb mounts, six decal options, and a small PE fret with seatbelts and foot step. All in all I could have modelled a later or earlier Mark Typhoons from what was in the box. All told the price wasn't too bad considering. It is a handful to build mind! Cheers Greg
  6. Hi Tony, Thanks for your kind comments. I have also liked the weighty appearance of the Typhoons, and this one captures the look well. All the best Greg
  7. Hi Steve, Thanks for your thoughts on my Typhoon. The yellow paint I have is Revell acrylic, and its quite gloopy despite thinning it out. I will get some Humbrol and give it a shot. The Brengun kit will build with care and plenty of test fitting. I think it looks the part. Cheers Greg
  8. Thanks for commenting! Cheers Greg
  9. Thanks Ced, It was one of the more challenging kits I have tackled of late. Cheers Greg
  10. Thank you Bernd 😉 Got it finished in the end mate! Cheers Greg
  11. Hi Simon, I am sure yours will be at least as good as mine. I have admired your recent Spitfire builds, which were excellent. My advise is persevere. Plenty of test fitting saves the day with this kit but only pure bloodymindedness got that canopy in place! It just does not want to fit. Mine was attached at the front and filled around the back to hold it in position. I look forward to seeing yours in due course. Cheers Greg
  12. Hi Gerrard, Thanks for commenting. I would have liked to see the Excellent Airfix Typhoons with a car door option or even as a retooled issue. The Brengun kit comes with enough spare parts to build either version. Cheers Greg
  13. Hi Jean, Yes, I should do a work in progress some time! You could have had a good laugh at my blundering murdering some perfectly good plastic . Apart from the older Frog kit I am unaware of any other 1/72 car door Tiffy's. Like you I prefer the car door to the bubble top. Purely for aesthetic reasons. Glad you like it, thanks again for the kind comments. Cheers Greg
  14. Thanks Michael, Glad you like it. Cheers Greg
  15. Cheers mate Thanks for the positive comments, much appreciated. All the best Greg
