      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. NEW

    Keep up the good work Mike.
  2. Slow progress due to watching Snooker, well that's my excuse, Aft deck dry fitted and I tried to slightly weather the blast bags, has it worked?
  3. Nice and clean, great build.
  4. Ah a pork pie sausage roll, It's been done!
  5. C'mon and shoot it past us, we all want tp know!
  6. That's really nice! A fine piece of modelling.
  7. Nice work, it's looking great and the custard nose looks good enough to eat!
  8. I just recently bought my first ever Tamiya Kit, the 1/48 Bristol Beaufighter, after all the years as a kid and recently taken up the hobby again this Kit was like something new to me, never seen as much fine detail and no flash on the model either, you can be rest assured this wont be my last Tamiya aircraft.
  9. Thanks Jamie, using colourcoats thinners is a must though as you already know but I'm surprised myself at how well this paint has went on, It dry's really nice and flat, I think I'll use this on all my future ship builds, I'll be doing the USS New Jersey next I think, so I'll have to work out the paints I need for this one, I've decided just to use the stand provided for the Hood as this is just a starter on ships for me but when it's finished I'm sure the kid next door will love it for his bedroom!
  10. Hull is now painted and finished apart from attaching the props, that's going to be one of the last jobs as I'm a bit of a clumsy beggar. These things are not easy to photograph.
  11. Thanks for the reply Jamie, I might try the Humbrol clear cote gloss then just to give it a slight shine, ifit's too much I'll try dulling it down with their Satin Finish.
  12. As others have said a great build, looking forward to seeing the other two!
  13. I've just put the first coat on the Hull, once my second coat is on, is it best to use Humbrol Clear Gloss or Satin just to seal the paint, I'm using colorcoats enamels.
  14. Their only trying to earn a crust of bread!
