      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. Hope all you traders make it to Perth ok. I come up on the train from Glasgow on the Saturday and usually get to show at about 10.50am (ish). Every turn round the halls usually results in me buying something or seeing something or wanting something that I have just got to have. Just how it goes at the shows I guess. Anyway hope everyone has a good one. Gordon
  2. Hi, Do you still carry all of the Ultracast ranges and will you be bringing them to Perth? Gordon
  3. Hahahahaha! Find out the hard way did you? lol Gordon
  4. Hi Mitch, Thanks for the advice re the foil from the top of wine bottles and weapons straps. What is Kneadtite? Is that the same as Magic Sculpt? Can I buy it in the UK? I have some Magic Sculpt and although I have seen and read of modellers using Kneadtite to sculpt figures it is not a product I have used or ever seen. Gordon
  5. Thanks for the advice re: lead sheet and the link Mart. I do not have anything like this but it looks like the perfect thing to try. Gordon
  6. Hi Chris, Metal foil from the top of wine bottles! I would never have thought of that. Need to take up drinking now. Thanks for the advice. Gordon
  7. Hi all, I have been trying to get into 1/35th figure modelling recently and I am wondering what the best method for producing realistic weapons straps is? Thanks in advance for any help you can send my way. Gordon
  8. The Scottish National Scale Model Show is on at the Dewars Centre in Perth on Saturday 29 and Sunday 30 April 2017. The show website has now been updated with all the traders, clubs and SIG’s who plan to attend the 2017 show. I have no affiliation with any of the organisers but I am assuming the 2017 show will be the same set up as the 2016 one in that it will be spread over two halls again. All being well I hope to be in attendance on the Saturday of what is still my favourite Scottish model show. The website: Gordon
  9. I made it to Telford on Saturday and was at the very front of the queue of the non IPMS members. Probably saw all of you from this site but I was taken up with the stalls and the traders I am afraid. Was quite interested by the Zoukei Mura Phantom and what I saw on the Airfix stand for 2017. Not so excited by the forthcoming Revell releases. Woke up today with the usual post model show feelings of just wanting to build kits. There are so many models out there and not enough time in which to do them. Please waste no more of your precious time on this thread dear modeller, you have got so many kits still to build.
  10. Thanks for the updates Radleigh. If I see you then I shall come up and say thanks.
  11. Hi Radleigh, All being well I shall be there early on the Saturday morning and will be approaching from the M6 along the A5. Thanks in advance for your help.
  12. Is there any update on the roadworks situation in and around Telford?
  13. Thanks Radleigh, the map is greatly appreciated. Do you know if this work will be finished before SMW begins?
  14. I got parked in one of the multi storey car parks last year and for leaving the car a whole day it cost me the quite incredible sum of £3.00. Surely the cheapest parking anywhere in the UK. Does anyone know any more about the roadworks that are happening in the Telford area that the IPMS website is making modellers aware of? From what I can tell they are taking place this week and should be over before the show but I thought it best to ask. Wouldn't hate to be driving round Telford and rural Shropshire looking for a parking place when I should be standing in the line of non IPMS members waiting to get in.
  15. To drive 300 miles to Telford and then 300 miles back again, or not to drive 300 miles to Telford and then 300 miles back again? That is the question.
