      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".

  3. The variation in the patterns was to avoid the possibility of a regimented appearance when the aircraft were lined up next to each other. Once it was realised that aircraft should be further dispersed, even having their own individual pens, the different patterns became unnecessary, and were discontinued 26th April 1941, before Ocean Grey replaced the Dark Earth. Manufacturers were told to choose either the A or B pattern and apply that to all aircraft. Most seem to have chosen the A pattern.
  4. The A and B pattern system was abandoned in 1941.

  8. Hello, Been lurking on here for a while and was very, very impressed with the standard of modelling, and thought I'd like to give it a go again. The last kit I built was probably around 1971 and an awful lot has happened in the modelling world since then! So to ease myself back in, I've bought myself a 1/48 Airfix BF-109E (Don't think my eyes or ham-fisted fingers could cope with 1/72 scale now!), an airbrush, paint, filler, various modelling tools and books. I've never used an airbrush before or even primed a model so this could be interesting! Pre/post shading what's all that about? Hey Ho! Adrian
