      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. the best thing for
  2. Aztec Decals sheet Ordonata Arsus Part 1 for 1/72 Cessna A-37B Dragonfly.. I now need more kits to build all these lovely options!
  3. It's sad how excited I just got at the arrival of a decal sheet! 

  4. Currenlty working my way through German Night Fighters versus Bomber Command 1943-1945 by Martin Bowman, I started the book almost a year ago and life got in the way as it so often finds a way of doing. I spotted it in the book case the other day and thought I better get it finished
  5. Took delivery of the Vallejo Air War paint pack for US Navy 1970's to present, needed to make up some order value for free carriage so I took the opportunity to pick some bits and bobs for a few upcoming builds. Got some 1/72 Brassin MiG-29 wheels for the Trumpeter kits for less than £3, this didn't really help with the free carriage so I picked up some frets of etch, one for the Meng F-102 I got from Black Mike models at last years Dundee show but still haven't got round to building, one for the Airfix F6 and just because of the price (63p!) I also got some etch FOD covers for a 1/72 F-14A
  6. Hi Stew, It's called Spacecraft and it's in the Ferry, on King Street, if you're heading towards Dundee it's just past The Gunners on the right. It's been open a month or two now I think. Link to the website https://www.spacecraftmodel.com (I'm not affiliated with them so I hope the links OK?) They still seem to be stocking up as every time I go in it seems they've added a new product line, is great to see a new local shop. Mark
  7. Paid another visit to the new model shop in Dundee this afternoon whilst the better half was off on a jolly to Aberdeen, thought I was most restrained only picking up a Trumpeter J-7A in 48th and a Revell F-14D in 72nd.. having said that it was scotsnats last week and the stash seemed to miraculously grow by itself during the course of that weekend
  8. Saw the f-35s that had been visiting as they headed back to the US, they were in formation with what I assume were their support transport over Dundee yesterday morning, must have been around 10am. I say saw but they must have been at 30k ft or more, sky was beautifully clear though and they all left some great contrails as they executed their turn to North West, even the Dundee airport twitter feed commented on it
  9. Is a lovely looking aircraft this, amazing to think they were in production for over 50 years although granted it had a few different names over that time. It's a great rendition of an elegant jet this, thanks for sharing her
  10. Love the camo on this I do. Great work.
  11. I can only echo what everyone else has already said. Almost makes me me want to grab mine out of the stash and make a start. Must resist and get another completion before starting something else though Top work, I like it a lot.
  12. The results are indeed all up on the shows Facebook page split over three posts. I thought there seemed to be a lot more entries this year than last which they also confirmed on Facebook. Is good to see the show continuing to grow.
  13. Great show again this year, plenty to look at and aspire to in the competition area and on the various club/SIG tables, picked up a nice Tomcat kit from Mrs Black, restocked some supplies at Paul's stand and nabbed a couple of fujimi A-6 from Collectakit. Maybe next year I'll pluck up enough courage to enter a couple of categories myself!
  14. I'd like to apologize for not being able to take part in this GB like I said I was going to, unfortunately a family bereavement has prevented me from being able to get my build for this one off the starting line. I will be back at the bench soon I am sure and this one will get done at some point, just not in time for it to be a part of things here.
  15. I will be along for a build in this, I have a Hasegawa block 60 that I have been meaning to start for a while, is as good an excuse as I will get!
