      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. Who knows- Some kit company might make kits for it, probably Airfix, you know, because it's around the Battle of Britain and that's where mod of their models are set in. also I don't see how people who watch or play mainstream media build models. Italerei sells tanks liscensed with a huge Multiplayer game called "World of Tanks"
  2. Looks good. Airbrushed or was metslcote spplied?
  3. Would it be good if I mixed Tamiya Midnight Blue with a dash of humbrol 104 to get a faded look?
  4. Most of the aircraft I have build (in terms of naval aircraft) are the ones with the late war dark blue Corsairs and Hellcars used. The only problem is that it's the darkest color I paint with besides black, and I have no idea how to weather them. Can anyone give me tips of how to weather this type of color?
  5. One kit that they should REALLY stop producing is the revell/Monogram P-40B Tiger Shark. The parts are a poor fit and are very brittle, and it's really fragile once built. The only good part are the three marking options you can use. And if anyone thinks it's a good starter kit, the new tool Airfix P-40B is way better.
  6. This is is probably the first time I've seen someone hate on an eduard kit oh, and if anyone wants to say a really good classic kit, tell me! I really like the Monogram 1/72 F-82. Easy, accurate, and really fun to build.
  7. Best kit for me was probably the Airfix Hurricane for me, good fit and easy to build worse would be the Lindberg 1/128 B-58. I'm still building it and there is so much flash and so many gaps and unstable parts worst decals would be the Academy 1/72 Hellcat. Micro Set and Sol won't save you this time.
  8. Nope, any kit
  9. I want to see some suggestions of best/worst aircraft kits you've guys have made. Here are some rules for the bad ones 1. Can't be an old model kit mould from the 50s or 60s unless the old mold was still made less than 15 years ago 2. Can also be bad decals as well there are no rules for good models lets see some of your opinions!
  10. This Lindberg kit dates back to 1959 and is still on the shelves. I thought I'd pick it up because it's the first time I've done a jet aircraft. so this B-58 came out in 1959 and there's even a commercial with post cereal advertising box tops that could win you this kit, saying how it's "special" because the parts snap together and there are working features. Well, this kit CAN snap, but it's highly not recommended to do this as it won't look good at all. https://youtu.be/M64Ai4I9-as so, starting with the cockpit. It looks good for a lot from 1959. It has some detail on the walls and the floor and has pilots and accessories like a bomb scope and control panel. https://imgur.com/a/IWL1a compared to the other kits of that era, especially the biggest company of that time, Revell, this model seems to have quite good detail for a model from the late 50s. Or at least what I've seen. The flaps on the canopy section open up revealing the interior, so the windows you see there can be put on later in the build. Then came the joining of the fuselage. https://imgur.com/a/3NhBi the fit wasn't good in a lot of places and when it was it was really uneven, so I'm gonna grab my sanding stick and Tamiya Putty, and when I'm done I'll show everyone the rest of the build!
  11. I am a fan of the Razorback P-51s, and I wanted to build a 1/48 kit of it. I considered 2 options, Revell with the British markings, or Tamiya with the American markings. Both are good, but which one is better in terms of looking good and easiness to build?
  12. I just got their lindberg B-58. I found out the mold is from 1959!
  13. Count me in, It's Carriers or SEA for me!
  14. For revell are you talking about the 1/72 or 1/32 wildcat?
