      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. Looking really good, you certainly seem to have done a better job than me, I had issues with the wing roots and the nose cone but the engine access panels were the worst fit on mine you look to have mastered them. Enjoy the painting stage.
  2. Nice work on the camouflage, I used a similar technique on my 1/144th scale Vulcan.
  3. Lovely work, It is a nice little kit big enough to get some reasonable detail but small enough to do a good line up of models, shame they don't do the other V bombers.
  4. Probably too late mate but give it a go. Terribly frustrating that companies still do this even when they have ben told repeatedly.
  5. That's a unique take on the kit. I really like it.
  6. Yet another cracker from the O'Toole stable. I also like the "metal" finish on them both
  7. Lovely work I especially like the solution to the exhaust issue. I really like the aircraft itself, my wife and I had afternoon tea in one turned into a café in NZ.
  8. Great work as always Tony. Good to see you up and modelling. Viscount806. I f you can wait for Telford Mike B usually has a a stand and if you pre order there is no customs charge or postage.
  9. Great work, always good to see an RNZAF machine.
  10. Meatbox8 similar, but the Blunties were originally painted in UK equivalent colours then repainted after major servicing the FS colours used by the Skyhawks. The best way to tell which colours were used is by the demarcation line between the light grey and the top surfaces. If it is wavy it is UK, if straight it is FS. Probably to much information, sorry.
  11. Steve, that was my reasoning as well, I normally build 1/48th but the size of a Freighter or and Andover in 1/48th is scary, even if the kits were available. I guess flying from NZ up to Singapore of further north at 150mph would be a trial
  12. Thanks guys, I have just seen the angle of the forward loop is wrong, I only spotted it on the photo not on the real thing!!
  13. This is my latest foray into the world of 1/144th. It is the recently released Oz Models Bristol Mk 31 Freighter, in the guise of NZ5910 of the RNZAF The kit is limited run so needs a good amount of cleaning up, though the fit is generally very good indeed. I had to make the D/F loops and the aerials from scrap. The real NZ5910 was sold to a Canadian company and after another 10 years service was finally put to rest in a museum. Thanks for looking
  14. ooooooh another treat in store methinks. Watching with interest.
  15. Lovely work on both, my favourite is the Rapide though.
