      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".

    Hi, with help from Mike, the other mods and the review team I have been working on getting a walkaround section here on Britmodeller. This will hopefully contain the sort of detail shots only modellers need. ie the left handed widget on the Blackburn Wurlitzer etc. We are aiming for Aircraft, helicopters, Tanks, Softskins, airliners, Ships, Subs, Weapons, Ejection seats, ground equipment. Basically anything of interest to the modeller. Guys & gals this section will only be as good as the info we can get and post up. If you would like to contribute then please let me know. many thanks Julien

  5. Steel Beach seem to do their normal covers,and a set of resin ones which seem to be plugs. TBH the rear of the resin ones dont really look like covers I have seen fitted.
  6. £8 is not too big a fee for the Post Office to pay this VAT to the Govt and then collect it back from you. If you deal with commercial freight you will realise it is a pretty small and insignificant fee. If you think of all the admin that goes into it it is NOT a reflection of the true costs to RM. Get a customs clearance agent to raise an import entry for you and its about £75 these days and if they pay any duties or VAT for you then expect to pay them plus at least 3% for doing that. If you order a kit from outside the EU you should expect to pay VAT and the handling fee on top, its the law and no way around it. Parcel carriers will sometimes charge more than this but with the RM which is now also a private company the fee is set. If you order something from overseas and it slips through you should see it as a bonus, and not a penalty if it does not.

  10. Did the Russians put a bigger gun in the SU-100 This picture shows what appears to me to be an SU-100 chassis but the gun is bigger, the plate reads 122mm? is this still a SU-100? Thanks Julien
  11. BTW it seems the Czechs made them well, one was still fighting in the Yemen in 2014!
  12. Thanks for the info. The barrel does look strange to me and when compared to another SU-100 it looks larger where it goes through the mantlet?

  24. Gents can anyone help with the MK ids on 2 tanks I have to put up for the walkaround section, both these are at Bovy I understand. Thx in advance.
  25. Some googling found this out about the Cheify The record card for this Chieftain Mark 5 (as 00 FD 69) shows it was built at ROF Leeds and had a Date in Service of 27 March 1972 at Ludgershall. Then it was at the School of Electronic Engineers at Arborfield in September 1973; no further details are given. It was put on the museum books in 2011. It was 00FD69 before the SP number?
