      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. I believe that xj824 at duxford has them. -Harry
  2. Well when I started making models years ago, I had no clue what to do, I would often skip instructions, paint without mixing or glue the wrong bits, (I have changed since and to be fair I was about 10 years old) so I decided years later to try and "rebuild" the kits but it never worked, so that's why there called "failed" kits, they may be beyond repair, but it doesn't make them useless, (like I mentioned I normally use them as test beds)
  3. After getting back in the hobby recently I decided to try a save my Airfix 1/72 spitfire, I didn't work, I ended up salvaging the useful parts and using the frame as a test bed for paints, so this leads me to the question, what do you do with your "failed" kits?
  4. Thanks stew I'll try that harry
  5. Will any primer work or should I buy specific primer? it's hard to get in Dubai harry
  6. Hi everyone I'm having a problem when brush painting my models, I use acrylic paints which mostly consist of humbrol and revell and various others, when ever I paint I always wash my kits, I don't use primer (though I will now) but if I leave the paint to set overnight, it can be easily scratched off! Does anyone know how to stop this? Harry
  7. Will do, I'll try but we're I live it's pricy to get bits posted, worth a shot! thanks!
  8. Does anyone know were I can buy the decals for this set? I seem to have lost them! harry
  9. Here's another picture of the scrapyard
  10. Thanks for the help that's been puzzling me for a while! I did also Spot what looks like a Westland Wessex but its probably a model, either way, it's cool. harry
  11. Hi all, I was just watching the film Con air (had nothing better to do) and at the scene when there at the airfield in the desert, I noticed a b24 in the background in a scrapyard, it had no wings, but why would a b24 in a scrapyard in 1997? (Year of production of film) I would have thought someone would have "rescued" this aircraft from the axe. Does anyone know anymore about it? I took a picture of it through my phone, I'll post it below thanks, harry
  12. That Venom looks amazing! I've never been lucky enough to see one fly though I have been around the raf venom in Oman, or what's left of it... looters and souvenir hunter have claimed the rest looking forward to the build! Harry
  13. Wow, very nicely finished indeed, love the detail! -harry
  14. I think they should make a 1/24 scale b36 peacemaker, not very English but it'll make one heck of a model
  15. Well done! Looks fab harry
