      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. As said in the second post.
  2. Two days ago I'd receive an email telling me the T-72 was back in stock. In not time the "order" button was pushed, and the kits arrived today.
  3. I think the point was more related to the missile being non-dogfigh capable.
  4. Certainly. My point was about "restored" aicraft.
  5. Better get some more informations about the kit before buying it.
  6. That pic was taken during an airshow in Turkey, there's nothing to indicate that the camo was "restored". 67-0210 went there in 1987, part of Peace Diamond IV, and Turkey is not known to repaint straight away aircraft bough second hand.
  7. I believe that Azimut had at some time a whole resin kit, or a conversion, I don't remember exactly. It was way before Meng and Tiger released their 30s. I'm pretty sure that today nobody will take the risk to release a conversion, as the possibility of a brand new kit from those mainstream companies is quite high. Beside, a conversion set would certainly comes with a high price, due to the big differences between a B/B2 and a D. The very first minefield breacher conversion was done as a scratch program during Desert Shield/Desert Storm, with AMX-30B fitted with a KMT set, coming from ex-DDR stocks via Germany. Later came more conversions, with a better and more complete design.
  8. Same player shoot again! Another order just arrived.
  9. If you check Osprey's Modelling serie, there's a conversion build for an Aussie Matilda starting from the tamiya kit in the Modelling the Matilda infantry tank booklet. Can't remember if the book was released before or after Tamiya #2 Matilda, anyway it's now about ten years old, so there might be new stuff available.
  10. Just received, already started.
  11. Thanks a lot for your kind words. It was not a match for the latest German design, as with its single man turret it already belong to the past. German tanks had the edge with a turret with TC and gunner at least, and loader for the largest.
  12. PAF records shows three R.530 kills in the 1971 war, with two acknowledged by IAF. First is a Canberra B(I).58 shot down at night on 4 december 1971 above Skardu (Pak) by Flt.Lt Naeem Atta from n°5 sqn PAF. Second is a Hunter on 5 december 1971 above Sakesar (Pak), by Flt.Lt Safdar, also from n°5 sqn. And the last would be an Su-7 shot down over Narowal (India) by Grp.Cpt "Nosey" Haider, n°5 sqn.
  13. Pugwash???
