      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".

    Some fantastic place
  1. More info from Moebius: "Don't lie don't shade" solves everything. 'We're making a kit of the Discovery, we've got some fantastic people doing the reference work to make it great. It's going to retail at $200 USD, and it will not have a pod bay or cockpit interior. We've made this difficult choice to try and keep the price down, our original spec for a full interior pushed the retail price over $300 and that just wasn't going to work for the retailers, they would not support it. So, no interior but we're working with some key aftermarket people who will fill that gap. We've made it easy, with separate pod bay doors, separate airlock door, and a separate 'backing plate' on the cockpit. We're doing the full color cardboard 'fake cockpit' for those that don't want to bother with the aftermarket stuff but who also don't want just black windows. We're proud and excited to bring the Discovery to the plastic kit world!'
  2. Which a unified pan-European currency prevents. Thomo.
  3. Brexit is certainly biting on prices. Thomo
  4. I don't normally do 1/144, whilst I utterly respect Ian's work I have the AJA 1/48 Aries and the Fantastic Space Station V and the MiM large scale Moonbus with custom turned engine bells. Thomo
  5. The Orion repop will be a minor retool of the existing Moebius tool to resolve the over thick wings. Personally, I would have loved to see Moebius announce a Boeing Aries 1-B, but that would be a massive tooling exercise for little return. I'll have to be satisfied with the top banana AJA 1/48 Aries (with interior), which I believed Adam has sold on and will be repoped and upgraded. Good times for lovers of the greatest film ever committed to celluliod Thomo
  6. According to this recent post Moebius are saying late 2017. Thomo
  7. Two metal rods, all explained here:
  8. The license ends in 2018. Thomo
  9. Loads of decal options, including BEA. Thomo.
  10. No information on the price point, I would however imagine it will be in the same price bracket as the Moebuis large Seaview. Should be available towards the end of the year. Thomo.
  11. Great. Thomo.
  12. Here are some pics of the test shots courtesy of CultTVman: Impressive, to say the least! Thomo.
