      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. So which fluid do you use with acrylics (if you use acrylics that is.. ).
  2. Laurie, the fluid was to be used to fill in canopy panels where the edges were first defined with a tape mask.
  3. Am trying to identify a suitable pre cut mask for a 1/48 Tamiya RAF Mustang with the Malcolm Hood canopy. It seems Eduard don't do one (unless I just can't find it) and the only other one I have found with the help of Mr google is by Pmask and it's vinyl rather than 'tape'. Suggestions? I'm currently struggling to mask a 1/48 Airfix hurricane canopy and I've found how bl**dy frustrating that is with my much less agile older fingers (and eyesight I think I'm gonna clean off the rather disappointing result with some ammonia and get a mask for that too.
  4. Hi all, newly registered here having just returned to modelling after a surprisingly long hiatus. What do you fine folk use as a masking fluid over acrylics (inc future dipped canopies)? My online searches suggest that many popular makes contain ammonia which obviously is not compatible.
