      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. It may be a bit tedious, but I find it interesting to see what scale modelers prefer. I for one actually build 32nd, 48th a few 72nd and a sizeable collection in 144th! No pun intended. ...
  2. I thought it was a "no no" to take a helicopter too close to any vertical surface, be it building or cliff face? Hope that I am wrong , but that looks like scrap to me. Perhaps they could donate the bits to the helicopter museum in Somerset, I understand that they can't get one.
  3. Obviously should have used VC10's for the conversion base,they would get off comfortably I'm sure.
  4. Excellent job there of an old friend from years ago. I think and hope Roden may have sold shed loads of this classic aircraft. Victor Fox is on my to do list at the moment but after a two week posting to Scotland for some r&r I hope to post sister ship Charlie Fox of Invicta international when I get back. I am very pleased that Ray has supported this kit with some fantastic options and it hopefully will encourage a Viscount or Vanguard from Roden. I have six in my stash at the moment, with four underway plus a F resin for company. By the way all, don't forget to narrow the track on the front main wheels.
  5. That is looking really good,look forward to more of the same. To my memory, when I last looked some years ago, I seem to remember only one aircraft constructed. Incidentally, I used to model in my lunch breaks, completing an Airfix E3D! My colleagues also thought me a bit strange "playing" with "airfix " kits. Enjoy your hobby!
  6. That looks brilliant Wally. These used to come to my local airfield Manston before they closed it,so I look forward to your finished model.
  7. Fantastic! Welcome aboard. Nice weathering, just right. Thank you for posting and lets hope for some more.
  8. From my limited knowledge, surely a "wet" pylon and a refuelling pod as done so many times in the past?
  9. It is probably thirty years or so since I last built a B17 but if I remember rightly it was possible to build and attach the turret but leave the clear bottom piece until last, after painting. I don't know if this is possible with the new kit?
  10. We all fall foul of going our "own way" occasionally when it comes to instructions and we always will.
  11. What did the instructions say?
  12. That is just what I needed, I can work from that. Thank you very much Jessica.
  13. I Google d Transair image's and I can't make up my mind as to what the main colour is, a rich yellow or cream? Are the kit colour instructions reliable?
  14. Excellent job there,nice to see one finished. I have five on the go at the moment and although three are getting close its props props props! Comes with the territory.
  15. Right, brain re engaged and reading the post properly. ... I got the impression that the kit supplied decals were no good and that having taken the trouble to paint the aircraft I would be without the titles to finish it. The kit is going together quite well and my only problem so far has been the step through the middle of the flaps underside. I had to do a little thinning on the trailing edge of the lower wing and remove a little of the area on the top wing that it sits on.
