      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. To the subject of drawings by Jun Temma, I had some correspondence with him regarding the Yak and LaGG technical manuals and original drawings, and he uses the original manufacturers data, esp. the ordinate tables, whenever possible. As to his research, he is very observant and meticulous. He even re-discovered the different F8F windshields :-) Vedran
  2. Because we had nothing useful to add to your colour comparisons? They have been noted, not ignored Vedran
  3. About two weeks ago on Facebook Tanmodel was considering making a 1/48 Hind but then the owner Baris Tansoy asked Martin from AMK about their plans and the answer was "after the F-14 comes the Mi-8/17 and later the Mi-24". We may never see them, judging by the protracted AMK "let us cater to every customers whim" production process, but at least we'll see a new 1/48 Su-25 by Tanmodel. Vedran
  4. billybookcase, do you hold the airbrush with one hand or both hands? Resting the model on a stand and holding the airbrush with both hands really makes a difference when doing the precision painting. Pity it took me so long to *see* it in all those Youtube videos. Vedran
  5. And better quality fuel. IIRC in Francilonn's book there is a note that the post-war tested Hayate with US fuel outran the mighty Corsair. vedran
  6. Radek, if pulsating is no problem, you might look into getting an aditional finer pressure regulator meant for lower pressures. Possibly something used in pneumatic jigs, in Festo catalogue. The advantage of the tank is that, beside eliminating the pulsation, the compressor doesn't work all the time, thereby increasing it's lifespan. Vedran
  7. Hey, I'm also a proud Sparmax owner (my DH-103 is now 10+ yrs old and recently a DH-825). These are quality tools and well priced. I use a home made compressor for decades (fridge compressor, 2 liter air bottle from an old fire extinguisher - used to have a bigger one from a truck pressure system; pressure switch from a water hydropack, pressure regulator+filter). In your place, Radek, I would upgrade the compressor with a tank and a pressure switch, Sparmax sells a set (tank, pressure switch and cables/fittings) to upgrade their tankless compressors, but other brands could be upgraded too. You get a wider range of pressures/airflow to play with. Vedran
  8. Radek, check out this video, some good advice is given. But unlike the person in the video, I would wait for seals to go before replacing them with beeswax. Vedran
  9. They carry it? I buy books from them on ebay, nice folks. I'll be sniping for it. Vedran
  10. Thank you exdraken, I must order me some Saettas. Re: seats, I'm not sure that they were ejection seats. Vedran
  11. Oh there were a lot of wasted electrons when the Eduard Hellcat came out. It has better cowling and wheel wells than the Hase kit. Vedran
  12. Yes, please. I meant the thickness, stiffnes and the clarity of the vacuform parts. It's the only thing that's stopping me from buying the Saettas. Vedran
  13. Yes, and finally an accurately slimmer tail too. It will be a serious competitor to Hasegawa kits. Vedran
  14. Hi exdraken, how are the clear parts in those kits? Vedran
  15. Here are some of the best Allison Mustang drawings to date, and they're free. Cheers, Vedran
