      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. Simply beautiful ! One of the most realistic renditions I've ever seen.
  2. The smaller hex would be a hex head on an external threaded pipe (Sorry, I don't know the proper name for it) the would hold the insulator in place. I.e. The spark plug would be an assembled component as they didn't have the manufacturing technology to make them in one piece as they do today. They would just be at a random relation to the larger hex. Your attention to detail on the plugs is impressive. I'm looking forward to your start on the engine block. How are you going to tackle that ?
  3. The Kwaka is stunning ! You've done a great job on a beautiful looking bike. Think I might have to get one myself ! good luck with etched parts on a 1/700 ship ! They are tiny !!!!!
  4. Looking stunning !! Amazing work for your second kit - you should be proud of yourself !!
  5. I think it was the screws that holding in the trailing arms that gave the trouble. I found on the DeAg MP4-23 and the Eaglemoss DB5 that a touch of vaseline on the thread helped the screws go in a lot easier.
  6. I see your Transkit is shipping, as is mine However, I'm really waiting for the Huracan transkit as I have that kit waiting to be built. My Aventador is stuck in storage at the moment...
  7. Did you have any trouble with fitting some of the parts in issues 12 & 14. One of the Youtube blogers mentioned that the holes in the chassis were not deep enough (or the screws too long, whichever way you want to look at it !)
  8. Nice one. I've got the orange coupe version and am waiting for Tommaso's transkit. It's going to be a good while before I start mine though. Looking forward to watching your ride.
  9. Just a thought, but have you tried warming the cable ties with a hair drier ?
  10. Apple green or mint ? Come on, make your mind up !
  11. Have a look on Scalemates[]=All&q=h2r I don't know if that link will work, but Acu-Stion do some.
  12. I've used Hobby Design detail sets, and they don't always fit well. Top Studio also do a super detail set, and you can see exactly what you get. I've never used Top Studio, so don't know how they fair in the quality stakes though. Perhaps somebody else here has some personal experience ? You can also download some instructions from their website, but unfortunately not the one for this set. I don't know if that helps or whether it just makes the choice harder.....
  13. I built this kit a few years ago. Lovely kit to build. I did scratch build a better shock, but it's completely hidden on the finished kit..... Unfortunately my photos were on Image Shack, and they've deleted all non-paying accounts so I can't upload any
  14. Thanks for the info. That's a real shame. I have the Aventador unstarted, and was thinking about buying this transkit. However, it's the big cross-heads that really annoy me. Going to have to do something about them when I eventually start the model. Hope you manage to get hold of your kit soon. I'm going to watch your build with great interest.
