      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. I saw one of these this morning in black all stock. I kinda prefer the blue myself. What are these pens y'all are talking about? Is it the same ones that activexp used to make his fantastic headlights here?
  2. You should be proud. It looks amazing. I love Swedish aircraft.
  3. I really like that color. My neighbor had a S10 in a similar color, it looks fantastic. I still think the headlights look amazing. Very realistic.
  4. I like that scheme! It makes that normally docile looking plane appear fierce.
  5. Wow! That looks amazing. I'm with Jessica, it looks tiny until you put it with the Draken. Is it about the same size as a F-105 or Buccaneer?
  6. Now that you bought new ones, your sure to find the old ones.
  7. I'm so angry I could curse. Every morning for the last few days I've been ready with my phone to catch any classic car that crossed my path. So of course I saw absolutely nothing. This morning I was running late so I didn't bring my equipment, so of course I run into one of the absolutely rarest muscle car ever made (one of my absolute dream cars) a presidental blue 69 Ford Talladega. Ford's entry into the infamous aero wars in NASCAR that have us the much more famous Dodge Daytona. Dang it! Here is a little bit of NASCAR trivia, a Daytona never won at Daytona the Talladega did. A Talladega never won at Talladega the Daytona did. The 442 was back as well as a 70 Chevrolet Chevelle SS in dark blue. A utterly fantastic morning.
  8. No can do. I use mine to work in! Those headlights look fantastic. Very realistic.
  9. Your thinking the later Miliano. She was a lot like Miley Cyrus. She got super famous being the anti-sex symbol of girls like Heather Lockler and Catherine Bach. She was marketed like how Disney markets thier tv stars now. Then once she got a little older she started doing much more "adult" roles. She started dating married men having affairs with baseball players and generally being a wild child. ( And you can't forget this was the ultra conservative early 90s)Parent groups went nuts, and having any Milano items was taboo. As a matter of fact a young lady I was seeing got super upset with me for still owning her album years later. (The 90s where weird) It took forever for her career to recover. So thats kinda the joke, Quin missed all that. To him she is still that young picture of innocence.
  10. The ship is named for 80's it girl Alyssa Milano. She would have been very much on the mind of a young boy about the age of Quin when he was abducted. Good lord look at all the eighties hair.
  11. Did you get the beam the way you wanted? I have a confession, the other day I went looking for a vid to post here to display the difference between Gamera's Taipei breath and Gamera's Toho breath. But I got distracted by some YouTube video about 10 giant monster movies you've never heard of. So an hour later I found out not only have I heard of all ten, I own DVDs of eight. With the other two on the DVR. So I wasted the rest of the day watching Reptilicus: And the Giant Claw. I might have a problem. ...
  12. I'm sorry for the hardships that's fallen on your family. We'll send some prayers out for you and your family if you want them.
  13. Be careful when you try to print the mirrored parts. Some printers "Go stupid " and can't work out the reversed equation. As silly as it sounds, I get around it by changing parts. I've never had any problems when I source my printing to somebody like Shapeways. Either they have better printers or better software.
  14. Have you checked out any of the free 3d models websites? They have a ton of obscure and weird stuff for free. It might require some tweaks, but it has to be better than starting from scratch. I've done that on a few sci-fi subjects I've really wanted, but nobody would ever model. BTW for what it's worth, focus on shapes over details. Sometimes printing can distort fine shapes, so I always make sure at least the shapes are correct.
