      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. 570 Sqn., at Edmonton Armoury drill hall. .22 cal rifle shooting at small targets of Russian aircraft, flying in the De Havilland Otter out of Namao, and seeing the first DHC 5 'Buffalo' to arrive at that same RCAF airbase. It was all fun until I joined the drill squad. Then it was all drilling and parading.
  2. Wow! Thanks for sharing this lovely model. We'll done, indeed.
  3. I should learn how to read. I've got the wrong Typhoon. Sorry
  4. The Hawker Typhoon 2 volume monograph #94-95 (AJ Press) by Leszek Moczulski is very useful.
  5. Well, this one just never moved, and now it's a DNF. Still sitting there, waiting on the shelf. After the Christmas holiday my fire for it just never came back. I won't give up, though. Sooner or later, and I'll post her elsewhere at that time.
  6. All around, beautiful.
  7. Sensational; a grand build of a beautiful aircraft.
  8. Excellent photo's you have there. Such a build will prove very worthwhile to look into, an I do hope you find quality time to move forward with it. I know that's not always possible with a young family.
  9. Great start! I'm very interested in looking in on this build as you progress. I just got the Airfix Vb for Christmas, and a great deal of it's parts are common to this kit. Already, I'll being looking for the Vallejo metal the next time I travel to the city. Looks good so far!
  10. Thanks. They are really very good. I was thinking they were those painted figures you can get for the train hobby. Goes to show how much I know about figures.
  11. Perhaps you can excuse my lack of figure knowledge, as I'm very unfamiliar with this genre. Did you paint these? and what manufacturer and scale? Thanks
  12. Now, that is an extremely attractive model in Lilliput scale. Well done!!
  13. As is already said, outstanding weathering job. Looks to be a museum quality build.
  14. Brilliant paint work. An extremely attractive F-5.
  15. To me, the Sea fury carried such a simple color scheme, yet it wears it like a tuxedo. Simply beautiful and effective. You have done a wonderful job on this model and have well earned the atta-boys.
