      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. Hi Jan, Any news on the Spitfire Tr.9s?
  2. Many thanks for showing the box and cradle photos, always wondered how people transported models to shows. Cracking model.
  3. Thanks for the responses. My understanding is that whilst the Russian two seaters have canopies more like the Grace spitfire the cockpits are in different locations, ML407 being standard TR9 in that respect, but yes something would have to be done about the rear canopy.
  4. Hello, Are there any plans to re-run the Spitfire Tr.9 kit? I'm hoping to do the Grace spitfire then and now. Regards Andy
  5. With regard to the nose cone did you use PVA/wood glue with the lead shot? It's a known problem in railway modelling circles. The lead shot reacts with the glue and expands. A few years back when liquid lead first came around there were a few instances of burst boilers that had been packed with the lead shot and sealed with PVA.
