      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. Very nice work there.
  2. So I've been getting on with the small details and some test fitting. The Fujimi firewall is nearly done complete with the scratched distributors And then a look at the front end. I'll need to scratch build a radiator and various details like the brake fluid bottles on this. The front framework is all pretty much done now, it just needs various bits painting. I'm not replacing the battery, I think the one built in will paint and detail nicely. A fitting of the rear frame with the side tanks And one with the larger fuel tank ( for Shaun ) which I won't be using. Top view with the top frame fitted. with the engine Now that I know it's all fitting nicely I'll pull out the mid sections ( the white ones ) and spray them German Grey and associated framework Nato black. The footwell will be lined with silver paper and given an oil treatment + the pedals need to go in there too. The MFH fuel filters have had there pipes fitted ( pin for scale ) Love the detail on these, very fiddly to do but well worth the effort. I'll be scratching these on the Fujimi which should be fun. And that's it for now. Steady progress but it's all coming together nicely. Thanks for looking. Edit: Inner floor pieces now sprayed and ready for detailing
  3. Not sure on the Pig, maybe just a weight. The trans kit spare tank fit is exactly the same length and width of that space over the side-pod though so it must be just a larger tank if you want to use it.
  4. Ahh OK, that actually makes a lot of sense. If you look at this Le Mans 1971 pic from the factory team the 917 at the front of the pic does indeed have a much larger fuel tank.
  5. You know what Shaun, that is a very, very good point. Where the hell does that piece actually go? I actually forgot I tried to work it out the other week and couldn't. Now of the builds I've seen with the transkit engine in them reference it either on closer inspection. Answers on a postcard please to...
  6. So just some minor bits and pieces as I've been away working again. The repaired fujimi sidepods 2k'd and now looking a lot better than a week or so ago. And a test fit of the MFH sidepods, no apparent problems with these. The complete extended inner wheel arch on the Fujimi ( the piece that took me way longer than I wanted ) And some detailing on the Fujimi firewall. ( this as well as the MFH firewal will be given an oil treatment ) And then onto he silverware ( or... the various metal tanks and side-pod inserts of both cars. ) Primed And then sprayed with Alclad aluminium ( straight over the primer, I don't want them too shiny ) Then ( on the MFH parts ) to try and get a more realistic look to them as opposed to just square boxes, I basically sanded a tiny part of the edges and corners back to the white metal to give them contrast. Very subtle, but I think they catch the light better at a distance. Then some detailing and oil treatment on one or two of the tanks. The straps will be painted on this tank. Oil treatment on the MFH fuel tank. The rivets are very tempting but I have no clue what size I'd need ( if anyone can help out here? ) I mean, it's not that necessary, the part does look riveted as is. But I'm tempted. Also in the middle of detailing up the second set of MFH distributors. I added the metal banding as an extra detail. And the start of scratch building the non-existent ones for the Fujimi And that's it for now really, just little bits of detailing here and there before I start assembling the Fujimi rear frame and dropping in the engine + detailing up the rest of the MFH rear frame. I have a few days off now + Ms Borez is away on a yoga retreat in Portugal so hopefully I can get a lot done over the next couple of days. "Hopefully" being the key word really. Thanks for looking in.
  7. Nice, I'm a long way from that stage yet though.
  8. Looking superb mate, really lovely work.
  10. Some seriously nice precision work going on here, wish I had the workshop space and tools to take on projects of this nature.
  11. Very nice, looking over your other work I love the Lola T70. Is it still a work in progress?
  12. I have to scratch build another one of those for the Fujimi build. I noticed that you'd actually managed to fit those tiny PE heat-sinks on the firewall Thierry. Those things had my life, they're difficult to see never mind fit. I lost a few of them too. Fair play to you sir.
  13. Lovely build of one of my all time favorite road cars.
  14. So, another update before I turn it in for the day. I was going to leave this until tomorrow but got too excited by the prospect and decided to join the front to the back. I'd already test fitted and pre-tapped all of the screw holes so it was a case of 5 no. 1.4mm x 3mm screws and it all went together perfectly. So after a lot of prep work it was finally back meets front, front meets back. I also provisionally dropped in the front frame assembly to have a look too. Also seen here are the newly painted wooden resistors Now that this job is done I can really get my teeth into detailing up the rear of the car. To be honest I've been feeling a little de-motivated with this build of late ( there's just so much to do taking on both builds at the same time. I literally have 4 drawers full of prepped and un-prepped parts ) getting this job done today is the new found enthusiasm I've been looking for. Onward and upwards Thanks for looking in.
  15. I certainly did enjoy it thanks
