      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. Great and interesting model of 'Chickenhawk' mount, excellent photos. What more can one ask? Impressive work. Kind regards, Joachim
  2. The expression 'shrunk reality' has seldom been more apt. Kind regards, Joachim
  3. Truly evocative. It really gives a tangible experience of flight. Bravo! Kind regards, Joachim
  4. Unmistakably a Spitfire, even if the canopy looks more like a one off racing job. ;-) Splendid work with that venerable old kit! Kind regards, Joachim
  5. Superb MiG there! And the base sets it off perfectly. Kind regards, Joachim
  6. Photos gone…
  7. Very convincing portrayal – build, finish and subtle weathering, all top class. Kind regards, Joachim
  8. Bf 109:s are a dime a dozen per se, but models of this amazing quality definitely aren't. She looks just 'right', ready to fly off. Impressive. Kind regards, Joachim
  9. Fabulous representation of SAAB's ultra secret A-bomber project. So highly classified was the A 36 project, that it's alleged that not even SAAB's CEO Tryggve Holm was aware of it! Apparently, the engine was to have been the British Olympus that powered the Vulcan and the Concorde. Your model is so convincing, Björn, that it takes an effort to realise that it didn't have a corresponding full size original. Kind regards, Joachim
  10. It's a bit of a visual shock, seeing a Hurricane in wolf's clothing like that! Interesting one-off and a very neat representation. Kind regards, Joachim
  11. Very effective Henschel Hs 129 B-2 portrayal, and the squiggle camo really sets it apart. Kind regards, Joachim
  12. Fantastic project and what a beautiful end result! Also a timely reminder that not many decades ago, wood was the medium for modelling… Impressed no end by this model! Kind regards, Joachim
  13. Really neat Messerschmitt! The discreet weathering dots the i. Kind regards, Joachim
  14. Good Spitfire in interesting markings! Flooding the panel joints with black doesn't quite help the overall impression, though… ;-) Really neat job apart from that! Kind regards, Joachim
  15. Very good looking Spitfire indeed! The story of William Dunn is quite interesting, I found when asking my friend Mr. Google to provide some information: http://warfarehistorynetwork.com/daily/wwii/william-r-dunn-eagle-squadron-pilot/ Recommended reading. Kind regards, Joachim
