      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. Wasn't the prone position tried as a way to limit the effect of G-forces on the pilot?
  2. Its use was intended as an advisory to North Korea more so than its effect against ISIS - hence the publicity.
  3. Tervo's, on Nassau Boulevard, just south of the Incorporated Village of Garden City, Long Island, New York. I spent many hours there in the mid-1950s among the Monogram balsa airplanes and the first plastic offerings of Aurora, Lindberg and Revell. Those were wonderful, uncomplicated days and only a 10-minute bicycle ride away from home. Nothing "exotic" such as Airfix or Frog ever graced Tervo's shelves, indeed I'm not sure if we even knew about such things at the time. As I was away from the hobby for a number of years in the early '60s, my first recollection about the vast number of 1/72 models that had become available was one day in the Summer of 1968 when I happened to drop by a small shop in Washington, D.C., where I was stationed at the time. I was absolutely amazed at what had happened during my 10 year absence.
  4. Deleted double post.
  5. Now that is wicked good!
  6. Many years ago I drew several lines on an upstairs windowsill of my parents' house to correspond with the location of sunrise at the times of the winter solstice, the vernal and autumnal equinoxes and the summer solstice. This morning I called on what little of Druid there might be in my Scottish heritage and stationed myself at the window to await sunrise. I'm happy to report that the sun rose exactly in line with the equinox indicator that I drew so many years ago. Apparently all is right with the World for at least another year!
  7. Very hard to tell from many Hornet pictures as the actuator housing is quite small, but it appears as if they were situated on upper left and lower right surfaces. From their size it would be hard to fault you for their complete elimination.
  8. Was a live weapon ever deployed from one of these airframes or did the capability exist as a design concept and inert carry only?
  9. I've done a number of Frog kits over the years and still have quite a few to go through. The choice of topics was superb and offered just the right amount of detail to look complete OOB yet was able to provide a good base for those interested in detailing. Here are some of my favorite subjects:
  11. Still have my Calgary White Hat from the mid-'60s. Not so white or crisp anymore, but I'll visit it on the top shelf of a closet where it has rested for many years.
  12. Split among multiple circuits, of course.
  13. Equally annoying are those who do exactly as I am now doing by posting something that takes a thread in a new direction having no relevance to the topic being discussed instead of starting a new thread referencing the new topic.
