      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. Excellent effort Stu, how did you find the stencils on the Mustang? must admit I needed a stiff drink when attempting them.
  2. You certainly ain't hanging about Stu, looking good.
  3. It's a nice kit, only issues I have found are the wheel struts which are a bit bendy so be careful with those, also good luck with control stick as it's almost impossible to get off without snapping. Mine has current had a couple of coats of clear prior to decals. It's been a very nice model to put together. i will pull up a pew and watch on if you don't mind.
  4. That is one stunning lookin bird, mucho kudos Chris
  5. As a newbie myself and probably have this kit, I am pulling up a chair if you don't mind
  6. 😄 that's not that bad a finish, the bird is looking fine to me, please crack on as I need pointers for mine 😉
  7. Interesting model as I have been looking SMER stuff on eBay but was unsure of quality, however I will pull up a pew for the dogs as much as the build, as an absolute softy with all animals with dogs being top I can't abide mistreatment and you efforts are uplifting, keep up the good work with both canine and model I will be more than happy to see both come to a happy conclusion.
  8. Mind if I sit in on this? A front row pew would be nice, and good luck I am sure it will be a corker
  9. Hmmm I have asked Santa for this kit and after following some of the trials and tribulations of your build and I must add brilliant work I am now officially bricking it and maybe secretly hoping 🎅🏻hasn't got enough space for it on the sled.
  10. Welcome Resin, I have the Tamiya King George in 1/350 in my stash after buying on a whim a few years ago and its a beast hope you have a big shelf if not best brush up on the DIY as the wife wont be impressed.
  11. Hi CB, Thanks for the welcome, I came across a stash of airfix starter kits in Home Bargains priced at £2.99 each so cleaned them out 😀 So busy attempting to hone what feeble skills I have on a Curtis Tomahawk in 72 and a Fw 190 in the same, I think both are new moulds but with a few minor fit issues, I have some other goodies to go at once I think I am not going to ruin them. Btw if anyone wants a starter kit at keen prices drop me a line as it seems I have overdone it on clearing the shelves 😂
  12. Cheers Steve, my main pastime is road cycling which is one of the most expensive things you can get involved in at a decent level bike and kit wise, I was hoping modelling would be be a little kinder on the wallet but the growing stash and peripherals is proving that was indeed a naive thought 😜
  13. I am a newbie to the site but would love to sit in on this one, I have the kit in my rapidly growing stash with added goodies of some PE and resin seats so some handy tips will go down a storm
  14. Hi there, long time lurker, probably like a good few on here just stumbling back into moddeling after the usual work, family stuff took up the last 30 odd years! I have a few pastimes so work will probably not be prolific 😉 I will mainly be dabbling in 1/72 in most eras. Have to say I have inspired from the stuff I see in the WIP thread however a little nervous of posting my probably mostly botched efforts but I am sure you will be gentle. Disco
