      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. Well spotted Daz. I've been looking forward to this. just hope I can afford it. XL612 from ETPS for me. richc
  2. Yeah probably sensible really. Good tip. I use that for silicone sealant, didn't know it worked on Latex. As usual BM teaches me something again. rich
  3. I'm sure a certain visitor will see to it that you don't , not that they make ninjas in that size . rich
  4. Nice to see you back to modelling Dan, but I hate to point this out at a critical moment, it's a helicopter. Seriously it's good to see you back fettling the old plastic, and as always looking to see what magic you'll weave. rich
  5. Look forward to it daktari. rich
  6. Aren't we drifting a little away from daktari's original post? Right now to sit down with and .. I'll provide the beer Troffa, you the popcorn, fair? rich
  7. I guess it's a possibility Vallejo have got it wrong! Please don't tell me you are relying on those photos that come from an unknown source, where we don't know if the white balance was correctly set. Not forgetting ambient light conditions on the day, and I'll bet you aren't using a calibrated monitor. The short of it is the pics cannot be used as a definitive reference, and as Mike has said Bobski knows this plane, so if he says it's Barley grey, it is! richc
  8. Wouldn't arf look good yellow . rich
  9. Tis an interesting question. I've done a bit more digging and it doesn't look as if ammonia will do it. It's used as an anti coagulant in liquid latex, not a solvent. One quote I found said that acetone doesn't work as his latex gloves survived. What he may not realise is the acetone will go almost straight through into his skin, and hence blood stream. Whoever it was needs to coma and work in our lab where latex gloves were used until H&S said we can't. The acetone made the gloves fall apart quite literally. Maybe I should have been clearer. The Latex does not re-dissolve, it just breaks down and can be gradually removed, but as I and Pigsty said, the brush isn't much use for anything other than masking fluid application again. I had the same brush I used for years in my previous modelling spat, just made sure it was cleaned after each use with cellulose thinners. richc
  10. It's not on the site yet for some reason. A quick warning! Just checked it out in an editing program and it DOES NOT scale for 1/48th like all the others yet. I guess that's in the works before it appears on the site. rich
  11. I've used cellulose thinners or acetone in the past to get the dried latex out. It's a tough messy job, and you must wear appropriate gloves (Nitrile, thick). To be honest the brush will never be much use for anything other than applying latex again. If you keep some cellulose thinners about and clean the brush straight away it will be usable over and over again for application of masking fluid, but very litle else. richc
  12. Damn you Andy. You've done it again! Leave my wallet alone......... The sharks mouth intakes scheme is awesome, so I guess these are next on the list, along with the wheels. The only thing that concerns me is the fact the decals are matt. I have never had any luck with matt decals. They've always seemed to be made of cardboard with no adhesive properties whatsoever! Do you have any previous experience of this companies products? richc
  13. Cheers for the review Mike. It's a nice little? kit isn't it. I'm just waiting for the E-2C+ with the Dowty blades. richc
  14. Good God Shaun, I thought you'd been abducted! Nice to see you are still at it. looking very good there mate. Not too much to do now . rich
  15. Certainly gets confusing all this re-boxing, especially when the same company re-boxes two different kits of the same subject at different times. rich
