      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. With a lot of scraping of the bulkheads and removing the rather large ejection marks that were in that area, especially where the cockpit is to sit. After that when I closed up the fuselage it was clamped rather hard.
  2. Wow that last photo is one I could have done with when I did what you are doing several years ago. As I did not see what you can all I did when I fitted the Pave Tack pod as it would be one the ground, was to remove the seeker head from the rest of the body and the shave the side that rested against the bomb bay until I could fit it back to the rest of the body. As I said although not technically correct it does not look to bad. I do wish you all the best with this conversion as there are no aftermarket pods at rest on the market at the moment. I know that I looked at the Aviation Workshop one when it came out, with the man behind the desk saying that it was for an aircraft on the ground, but it was just the same as what came with the kit so not what I was looking for.
  3. That is a hell of a lot of work that you have carried out on those engine, and it is well worth it. The effort in getting the cockpit right/better, is to be commended.
  4. Nice one, well done.
  5. Coming along very well. Yes the U/C is a real minefield. Hope all goes well.
  6. seems to be coming together nicely Tim. I too struggled with the nose are on my F6, but after shaving things here and there I eventually got a better fit. As other have said, when I built my F2A in its original boxing it seemed to almost fall together.
  7. This Is my offering for this GB. I will be using the recent Modelvits Su-20 kit to make an aircraft from the Iraqi Air Force, which to my surprise were still being used in the 1991 Gulf War, with a few escaping to Iran. Although I show the kit decals I will not be using them, but I will be using the Linden Hill set for Iraqi Fighters. I will get a shot of them when I get my spare room sorted as it is full of boxes that need to go into the stash storage facility, but unfortunately my mistake back is not allowing me to do this. The kit. Some references.
  8. I now have the major decals on. I am not sure if the wing dayglo patches are on the correct way the instructions gave no indication other left and right, plus I could not find a clear picture in the books that I have. Whilst at Milton Keynes show this weekend I managed to pick up a set of Red Top missiles, which although the set says for Sea Vixen ( as it has the wing pylons) they will do for what I want which is dummy missiles and they are much better than the kit offerings.
  9. I now have the front and rear parts together, plus I have filled some of the gaps with plasti card as I think in some of the areas it would be better than just filler, and it will also give the filler something to take hold of rather than sinking into the gap and having to apply more filler.
  10. You certainly like these monsters. Good luck with this build.
  11. Certainly an unusual camo scheme. good luck with this one.
  12. Thanks, I will set a topic post soon.
  13. Nice work there especially on the cockpit. I was going to say not to worry about the gap as there is a part that will cover it up, but you beat me to it. A good point with the location points on the intake though, I will keep it in mind when I get to that part on mine.
