      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. Hello everyone. I havent been much active in the forum although I have built between 5 and 10 models since my last RFI. Unfortunately I dont have thaaaat much time in general anymore and my cameras are awful for these kind of things. Hopefully I'll get a really good one someday and get into scale model photography for a while.


    Not to mention the laborious photo pasting process...

  2. Hmm, interesting. Wonder why that'd be.
  3. Great one. Nice alternative on the paint job. Hi, I built that very one and had this issue with the wings. They're supposed to be horizontal.
  4. Very good matt finish.
  5. Excellent work there. That Tornado has a lot of mileage!
  6. Nice job. Im about to finish my MiG-29 here.
  7. Hello Matt, Could we add these in the gallery? They are what-ifs. ]
  8. I just happened to see a review of this kit online and it has quite a lot of interior detail.
  9. There is a 1/72 Hasegawa Sea Hawk, gloss white, with identical markings at my local hobby shop. Let me know if youre interested. I think it costs 1200 or 1300 Yen (theyre sold to me at the price printed on the box) and I can find out how much the post is to the UK through the public service. Well yes. I unintentionally painted two jets in Imperial Navy green,. Im not 100% convinced just bcz Im familiar with the color but Im going till the end with it hoping theyll look fine. And one will look better than the other. In all, green has so many tones it is hard to get just the right one. And thank you!
  10. Hello everyone. I really wanted to make a WIP of this build but because 1) time constraints, 2) not having my own nor the borrowed laptop handy, and 3) a temporary problem with the image hosting website I use ( I decided to go forego the WIP posts. Anyway, I posted the pictures of the assembly on my Facebook page -is it allowed to say FB here??? I wonder...-. It was an extremely satisfactory build And I must insist that lacquer paints are the best! The model was entirely hand painted and no masking was used on the windshields. I made a great effort in painting the interior really well, (and the interior took me days) just to realize that you won't be able to see it ever again. There were very few mistakes. The most notable one was the grey line on the door side. It is higher at the back than at the front, something you'd notice if the door were closed. That's why I had to leave the door open. And the floor visible through the open door has two color tones because the paint I used was a lacquer that I recovered from a solid dry state and it had changed tone by the time I used it at the "doorstep" after a little putty filling I had to do there. The kit itself was strangely missing the interior ceiling by design but well. Other than that, a spectacular model indeed. Oh, and I didn't paint the rotor blades exactly how they should be. Too much, too much.
  11. Sorry folks, I posted an RFI here by mistake. I moved it to its proper place but I'm left with this topic which I cant delete.
  12. It's looking very good. Looking at it makes me want to build a 1/48 one. As you know, you hot my vote already.
  13. Being free like that was too good to be true. Hopefully theyll change their business model and start charging something reasonable.
  14. Seems like the service I use is in trouble. that is.
  15. Thanks! And for what I read, you wouldnt see.this version in real life a lot either. The instruction booklet says only 23 TA-4Fs were converted to this standard.
