      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. Fascinating, thanks for posting Cheers Dennis
  2. Beautiful job, I've just finished their Mk.II and I was pleased with the outcome so I also bought the Mk.IX. Cheers Dennis
  3. Yes I was also brought up with The Saint and Ivanho, sad news indeed. Dennis
  4. What a beautiful paint job, it looks really great, these Wingnut kits do seem to turn out well, one day I will have to be brave and have a go at something with rigging. Cheers Dennis
  5. I am a through and through enamel paint man and for Italian subjects I use mostly Sovereign Colourcoats, though there are some very close matches available in Humbrol. The Humbrol matches are listed in Regia Aeronautica Caccia and Assalto 1940-1941 Part 1, as mentioned above the Stormo website is also a treasure trove of information with Colourcoats, Humbrol, and FS numbers as well. Cheers Dennis
  6. Really tragic news, what a talented rider he was. Dennis
  7. Have a look here, Cheers Dennis
  8. Nice job, one of my favourite kits and subjects, must build one another sometime. Cheers Dennis
  9. Great job, looks the biz, I didn't even know that Tamiya made one now, when I was building armour I had to fight with Maquette's monsters. Cheers Dennis
  10. Great build and the paint scheme is spot on, it's one scheme that I have to try out in the future though mine will hopefully be easier as it will be 1/32 scale. Cheers Dennis
  11. That's handy to know. Cheers Dennis
  12. Here's a nice discussion on mixed grey Cheers Dennis
  13. That looks great Tony and the tale of the Wirraway's is one that I have not heard before. Cheers Dennis
  14. I definately started out to collect kits, reference books, decals, details sets and paints, my reason was that I was laying in a stock for when I retired as when that time came I would not have the money to buy kits anymore. However I am now retired and still buying kits ! Cheers Dennis
  15. Sounds like you had to do more sanding and filling than the old Revell Hurricane, but but's looking good now. Cheers Dennis
