      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. Thanks John, Those were very informative photos. Looks like the armed JPs has the weapon control panel in between the two sights. Thanks also for the close-ups of the Sura rocket arrangements on the prototype Strikemaster. Am glad am on Britmodeller. YK
  2. Am planning to build the Airfix Jet Provost in armed configuration that was in service with the South Yemen Air Force. http://www.acig.info/CMS/index.php?option=com_content&task=view&id=75&Itemid=1 Photos showed that it carried Sura rockets and I have that in my spares box which comes from the Matchbox Strikemaster kit. I also noticed that the armed Jet Provost are (obviously) equipped with gunsights above the instrument panel and a standby comapass(?) hanging on its windscreen centre frame.. However photos I'd seen are not in the best resolution and angles to show clearly its construction and arrangement. Have searched the web, particularly walkarounds and was not able to find any photos or drawings of gunsight or weapon aiming sight on the JP. Would be most grateful if anyone can lead me to any website that depict this or post photos or drawings. As a matter of interest, 7 of the South Yemen Jet Provost T.Mk.52s were purchased by the Republic of Singapore Air Force in the early 1970s to supplement the Strikemasters in 130 Squadron. YK
  3. Hi Mike, Spoke to Bernard. He just renewed the lease in Sunshine Plaza for another 2 years, so no plans to move yet. YK
  4. Thanks Alpha Delta 210 for the welcome. Yes, I hope to post completed models in near future for critique. Thoroughly enjoy the sharing of modelling techniques on this forum. Hi Mike, M-Workshop is still at Sunshine Plaza, at the junction of Middle Road and Bencoolen St. Am not aware they are moving. Will let you know if they are and where they moving to. YK
  5. Thanks for accepting me into the forum. Built my first model, an Airfix 1/72 Boomerang in 1973. Getting back to Scale Modelling after a 22 years break and realised that the passion is still there. Much to learn and catch up and amazed with the information and knowledge in Britmodeller. Will be a continuous learning journey and hope to also be able to contribute in some ways. YK
  6. This model is beautifully done. I have also bought this kit and the Xtradecal X48160 for WE876. The plan view of the Xtradecal instruction shows the aircraft having extended tabs on its ailerons, as circled in the image below. I supposed the decal instruction sheet drawing is in error?
