      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. Lovely! Very inspiring!
  2. Glad you appreciate it as I do your Matchbox builds! There is more on the bench and to be finished in the coming week!
  3. Very impressive! I would have never guessed you used the run-of-the-mill Revell kit for this! You paint job has an almost unbelievable exactness to it!
  4. I am not sure if that's appreciated here, but I thought I'd post it anyways. This is a model I built more than 20 years ago. I recently dug it up when sifting through my parents basement. It is one of the few models from my early works that didn't land in the bin. Built from a 70's vintage kit and brush painted with Humbrol Enamels (my favourite paints at that time). Has quite a coat of dust on it. Actually a cool plane. My grandfather flew one like this during the Spanish Civil War. I though it would be nice if Trumpeter made a 1/32 version of it.
  5. Thanks! Well, I have admit that is still an unsolved problem for me too. It is now standing on a table in my work area but I will definitely need more display cabinets. But cheap and good ones are hard to find.
  6. Another of the classics has been finished. The kit came in just a stapled plastic bag with the vintage instruction sheet in Russian. The kit had no decals, so I had to conjure something up using spares. Of course it is historically unaccurate therefore! Actually, this is the first Spitfire I ever built!
  7. Here is something finished! It took me quite a while. Especially the last bits and pieces. It is still missing the antennas (since I couldn't figure out a good way to do them. This is my first serious attempt at a 1/32 scale plane. I used to build some as a kid, since I often got them as presents for christmas etc. People just wouldn't understand I didn't like them that much since they weren't good to play with and didn't match the 1/72 soldiers and tanks. So I was never really into that scale. Now that I finished this one I am actually quite encouraged to do more of the "big stuff". Perhaps also an age thing ("old man's scale"). Hope you don't mind the stupid background. It's all I had at the moment.
  8. Nice job ob the camo! Thanks for bringing this kit to my attention. I will make a mental note to hunt one down!
  9. Thanks! This one made it even into a wooden mock-up. So, as compared to other paper projects this was "on the brink to be build".
  10. Very neat result! Also the choice of the decals is good. It shows that those Revell kits go a long way with effort put into them.
  11. Very nice! Are you aiming to build the whole collection of this product line?
  12. A quick and rewarding built is this model of the Fw TL (Turbo-Luftstrahl)-fighter project. I think this is one of those Revell kits which were developed and produced by a Korean contractor (does anyone know details about that?). It has a combination of recessed and raise panel lines. Some of them are a bit fine, so I'd recommend to rescribe them before painting so you can get clearly defined pin wash results (if you so wish). I didn't do that so the wash doesn't show off all the detail that well. Paints are vallejo model air and some Revell and Humbrol enamels for details. The canopy is not that great, so maybe a pilot would have been nice too. It is a rather small plane. Sopwith Triplane for scale.
  13. Thanks for the flowers! I look forward to see your nightfighter. I still remember the 1980's boxtop of the old Revell Hurricane which showed the all black finish. That should look quite smart!
  14. Finished my Revell Luchs today. The kit has some known issues, but unlike the ne (Takom?) one it makes for a quick build. Since I like the old gelboliv look of the Bundeswehr vehicles I decided to build the one stationed in Hessisch Lichtenau (or "Heli" as it was called in the Bundeswehr).
  15. Lovely! I remember getting this kit as a Christmas present from my parents back in the day! It's actually a nicely done kit with recessed panel lines. Finished it with paint brush. Grey and semigloss black was enough. I remember being happy with the result
