      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. If it's as good as your Argosy it will be a fabulous kit.
  2. Using acrylic paint helps too. Much easier to clean both the pot and the airbrush.
  3. Hi Dennis, very useful info there. One question, does the point of the NACA triangle face forward or aft? Many thanks.
  4. Great work. I am in the middle of my first one and am fitting the conventional doors in the open position as Airfix have thoughtfully provided the necessary parts to enable me to do so. I have been unable to find a picture of an Victor thus configured. I have worked out that the doors retract in a similar way to the Canberra but does anyone know if they disappear completely inside the fuselage? Many thanks.
  5. I have one of those things.
  6. I used to visit him regularly, although unfortunately space was at a premium. AG Fry is now a hairdresser called Style Guru, not a kit in site!
  7. You could always get a taxi 😊.
  8. Like Steve I used to frequent MR & ME in both sets of premises until they closed in 2006 (Steve?). Goldings is a more than adequate replacement.
  9. Steve Hackett The Night Siren Haken Aquarius & Visions, all on vinyl.
  10. BMW Models, Haydons Road, SW19. Except I don't live in London any more.
  11. I bought one of those on Sunday and it also has a chunk missing from the lower starboard (I think) wingtip. I have the 26 BOAC sheet for it.
  12. Roden Super VC10 and Micro-Mir Argosy 200. Both 1/144.
  13. Excellent show once again, thanks to the members of Peterborough Club for organizing. Looking forward to next year 😁.
