      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. Can't wait (have various belt options for my current build...fabric, steel, standard etch) and not sure which to go for in terms of 'look' v 'ease of assembly' . Looking forward to seeing what you're going to do. As for the builds themselves...6 Spits?! You ARE totally bonkers. But you can NEVER have too many. Love it!!
  2. Love the blue nose P51s. Takes me back to my teens and the original release of the 1/24 Airfix kit (looking back, I can't believe I had the guts to take it on!). Great job Stu...
  3. Really nice; as CedB says, no such thing as too many Spits. Ever! Three daft questions...scale (I'm assuming 1/72)? Are they airbrushed?? And what paints did you use???
  4. Looks great! ...that's a bit of a worry, as I have one in the stash. What's the problem with it? Assumed, as new(ish) Airfiix, it would be a trouble free build. No??
  5. Really nice build and finish. Love the subtle painted out roundels and faded paintwork. Excellent. Touch more weathering on the decals................................................??!
  6. What can I say...SUPERB build. Niggles? Schmiggles!! Love it. Well done...
  7. He's done it AGAIN. Stunning! Love the build and, especially, the camo...but this time, a good model has been ripped apart to make a great one. Excellent and thanks for sharing!
  8. A model? Yeah. Right! Superb, as always...
  9. E Absolutely, me too! Are you sure about the Vallejo 'AIR' paints brushing well? I've never used Vallejo but I thought they did different paints for hairy sticks and airbrushes...looking forward to the build. Nice kit and some lovely bits n bobs for it...
  10. Forty-five days? FORTY-FIVE days?? That is just SUPERB. If it weren't for the backdrop, I'd believe it was a IS a model, right?!!
  11. LOVE Swiss 109s. All the evil intent of the 'real' versions somehow made benign by all that red and white. Excellent.
  12. My boys have 4 (wooden, not kits, and bought from a local 'craft' shop) WW1 bi-planes hanging from their bedroom ceiling, on white cotton so they appear to be 'flying'. And they look really cool, even at 16 and 14 years old. But what you've just bl**dy awesome. Love it to bits!! And very best wishes to you and your, soon to be, family. Enjoy!!
  13. Whoa! Click bait alert!! But it worked...and great models. Early Blenheims are the best. And you've made a cracking job of all 3. Well done.
  14. SUPERB!! Assume that must be natural light looks so real! Amazing what the Finns managed to do with whatever cr*ppy machinery they could get their hands on. An MS406, for pity's sake!!
  15. Beautifully done. LOVE the wing root walkway stripes worn away. Excellent weathering! I was under the impression that it was Airfix that had made a dodgy job of the undercarriage attachment on their 1/48 Spits. What's wrong with the Eduard version?
