      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. Hopefully some new decals will be released for upcoming Italeri kit. I too have all the bits, I bought an AM set of GR1 decals (might be the ones Eng mentions above) for it that would be suitable for a GR4 but then you have the problem of the stencils. Muzz
  2. I think you may wait a while for the FLIR to be back in stock at Relish, it's been due 'back in stock shortly' for a couple of years I think.
  3. Nice selection of schemes. The current release has the option of the fin fillet without the intake so I'm sure this one will to, they've obviously just used the same side profile to display all the markings. Wonder if it will contain a new rear fuselage for an M3 as per the break down of the parts?! Currently building the first release lease of this kit and I'll buy this one too. Muzz
  4. That look great Glynn, silky smooth looking paint job! You'll be happy you stuck with it now. Muzz
  5. Nose gear bay done, added the insulated pipe along the roof of the bay. All the bits ready for assembly.......
  6. Thanks Werner. The fit of the shock cone is excellent, it has been well designed with a cut out at the bottom surface to accommodate part of the fuselage join tabs. There is a small sheet of thin clear plastic for the camera glass much the same as you get for HUD's with AM cockpits. Didn't know about the two types of insignia either, I've plenty in the spares box so it's not a problem and the rest of the decals are fine. They have another set out with the up to date grey scheme included which I was going to buy, making me think twice now though. Muzz
  7. Don't cause I'm out at the pub!😂
  8. Lots of progress this week. All painting finished save for a few areas to touch up. Vallejo panel line wash applied. Wasn't sure if I should finish it in a matt coat or a semi matt coat but decided in the end on a matt finish. Masking came off all the red areas and I've attached the control surfaces to see how it looks, nothing fixed in place yet.
  9. Not too much progress, building a few sub assemblies. Had to change the colour of the wheel bays as the grey was too dark.
  10. If your suggesting that the surface detail on the Kitty Hawk kit is similar to the Kopro kit (I don't believe OEZ ever released the Su-17/22, an Su-7 yes) then I'm afraid that's just not the case. I don't have the Hobby Boss kit but I'd be very, very surprised if the surface detail on that was also about the same as a 20 odd year old kit! Muzz
  11. My replacement shockcone has arrived from HAD Models.
  12. Decaling done, next up a semi Matt coat, wash and black area on nose and wing roots.
  13. That is a proper job, good effort Glynn, hopefully that's restored your mojo for the build. Muzz
  14. Great to hear from you Martin and sorry that you've not been well, hopefully you're on the mend now.🖒
