      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. Hi Mike

     

    Could I have the PR1G conversion with a Tamiya Mk 1?

     

    Will

  2. Can I just say how much I am looking forward to this release. The Buccaneer is such a great machine. Will
  3. I think that is standard practice for them. Make a batch, sell them and then wait until demand returns. They have done the same with the Lightning several times and the big Mosquito as well.
  4. Still not convinced. You could say the same for almost every subject that was not entirely smooth on the vertical or horizontal plane. Certainly the Sea Vixen is more complicated, the Javelin is larger, the Victor considerable more involved as well as larger and the Walrus?. Inserts are a fairly simple solution to the detail issues you mention if the moulding cannot be made to work.
  5. Not sure why a Scimitar would be more expensive as it is pretty straightforward airframe to model? I have not come across a charity model company yet though there is time.
  6. A IIIF would be nice but even then between Silver Wings, Montex, Aeroclub and Wingnut the list is getting shorter.
  7. Time will tell. I disagree on thousands of British Aircraft that have not been kitted. There are few left that have not been done in 1/48 that are not too big when you include limited run.
  8. I have no doubt that we will get one eventually simply because the number of potential subjects is limited. Look at Trumpeter making every type of Russian vehicle that ever moved - tell me that a Scimitar would sell worse than every one? Will
  9. Strange though that this thread keeps coming back. When I win the Lottery you shall have your Scimitar!
  10. That was a Mk V There is a Mk II in the main hall that is firmly on its U/C
  11. Bring it on Airfix! The Scimitar is one exception to the looks right/flies right adage. I think around half were lost in accidents and it was a maintenance nightmare. That said in a war it may have faired better and it suffered the fate of so many British post war aircraft in being over specified with insufficient funds for development. That canopy is well done.
  12. That is a really nice Vixen. How did you do the canopy so well? My love affair with the Scimitar started with the Airfix Victorious as well. Will
  13. I hassle Airfix every year at Telford for a Scimitar - you are definitely not the only one.
  14. Keep the faith! If Trumpeter can do a very good Wyvern in 1/48 anything is possible. Given the number of builds/demand for the Dynavector one I would suggest that of all the Dynavector kits the Scimitar was the most popular and look how many of those have been kitted. Will
