      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. Finally got back to it this week, got a Promodeller Dark wash on followed by a Matt varnish coat (Humbrol rattle can) and am working through some subtle pastel weathering and staining just now. These birds seem to be generally well looked after other than paint fading so keep reminding myself to avoid getting too carried away. I've also assembled my PJ Productions pilot and got a coat of paint onto him as well, he needs some detail painting and drybrushing to finish him off (and if I can find a decal small enough, a red star on his bone dome!) Just one quick pic tonight - Almost there! Eng
  2. A rather non-productive, productive day today! Was fed up rooting around through Tamiya paint jars 3 layers deep in a drawer, and never knowing which ones had been used before where I've got duplicates so knocked up a nice new rack to sit on the bench....... [URL=http://s128.photobucket.com/user/eng1170/media/66664932-09C2-46AF-B6A0-1AC78CC5E177_zpsptdppf5k.jpg.html][/URL] ....this then escalated to a full strip and tidy up of the bench..... [URL=http://s128.photobucket.com/user/eng1170/media/29E2D49E-2DD1-4257-87ED-05276D343C27_zpsnpy6ilg9.jpg.html][/URL] ...and because I'd opened up the drawer to move the Tamiya paints and stock take, I cleared out the drawers and tidied these too! What a good boy I've been, however there's still several issues.... I didn't actually do any modelling, I've too many models on the go at once, and I've a bloody great stash in the loft and not enough hours in the day to build them!! Can't wait to work at my nice clean and tidy bench next set of days off though. Eng
  3. Yep, I'd be chuffed as hell with that too. Great looking Phantom! Eng
  4. Last weekends visitor to Glasgow! Managed to get down to catch this on the evening before it left. Think this is the 3rd visit we've had over the past couple of months from KC-130's, reckon words spread among the Marine aircrews that a weekend in Glasgow can be "interesting"! Caught these 2 pics of EK025 arriving from Dubai on Sunday night, was particularly pleased with the second shot just as the rear wheel kissed the tarmac One final shot of one of my baby's on finals, I never noticed the second aircraft in the picture until I'd looked at the photo's on the "big computer" Eng
  5. That's a bloody impressive paint job! Awesome work indeed. Eng
  6. I'm in the same position, all the bits n pieces to build it as a GR.4 but there is just no aftermarket decals for recent aircraft. I think there was an Xtradecal sheet for one of the specials a while back but it's like hens teeth these days. I'd settle for a sheet of stencil markings with maybe one special and a line jet if anyone out there is up to producing some? 12 and 31 Sqn? Eng
  7. Looking sweet! Mines taken a back seat while I try and finish my AFV Club F-5N Eng
  8. Very nicely turned out from quite an old kit too. Lovely build.
  9. Absolutely stunning! Love the North west of Scotland, every change in weather or lighting and it looks so different but equally awe inspiring. Feel lucky to live only a few hours away. Anyway, will be back to following your Hawk progress 😉 Eng
  10. Any in the UK yet? Eng
  11. Lovely work on the seat. Was as your last Scotland pic taken near Ben Hope by any chance looks very familiar? And for the doubters, the weather is still like that today and currently +17 deg C Eng
  12. Whoa, this is nice! Cracking work so far..... I'm hooked Eng
  13. Lovely paint job, very tidy. Eng
  14. Beautiful models and love the photography/diorama settings too, very nice indeed. Eng
  15. Better idea! https://www.amazon.co.uk/Thermos-Thermocafe-Stainless-Steel-Flask/dp/B000TASOEK/ref=sr_1_4?ie=UTF8&qid=1494854793&sr=8-4&keywords=Thermos+flask Eng
