      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 you don't like the kit then don't buy it. Simples! Also if you are such a perfectionist then go build your own moulds and mass produce a kit for the world markets. I am not defending Airfix or any other company for that matter. But i can honestly say that if this kit had been released by Tamigawapeter then it would have cost at least three times as much.
  2. I too am going to be embarking on a GR1 from 14 Sqn when they were based in Germany at RAF Bruggen. Loving this build so far
  3. Bit later in replying to this but loved seeing this being built. I'll eventually dip into the SF scene and built a load of Tie Fighters and X-wings.
  4. Cheers Julien but i ment with from underneath with the bay doors open? I'd like to see the pipework and how the engine fits into the airframe
  5. You and a couple of thousand other modellers, myself included lol
  6. Just sent a request to join. First name Allyne
  7. Anyone play Warbirds Online here? Can be found at Although it's probably not the best out there graphically i think it is defo one of the most realisitc ones.
  8. Cheers Tony. I did my trade training as a rigger on these at RAF Halton. Love them. I'm detemined to build a model of one some day
  9. Does anyone have any decent pics of the engine bay from below the a/c (with engines fitted)? I'm needing pics for a project. TIA
  10. Just about finished the build phase of this model. Going to try out the Klear/Mattcote thingy and then some Promodeler wash solution. Never done either of them before so this is a total experimental model for me. This is it so far....
  11. Excellent work Karl. I love Fw190's and that is a great build.
  12. This is of the finished gun and two crew members. The rest are presently being used in a diorama mock up so aren't available for pictures. Was a lovely model to go together and when i get my other crew members back i shall be making up my own dio
  13. Looks great. Hope my attempts at mottling come out like that.
  14. Pulled these off my HD
  15. Yeah doh!.... that's me typing to fast again.... 2 secs
