      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. Really nice build and paintwork!
  2. And just to dot the T's and cross the I's. Please keep any religious/atheist/agnostic rants away from here as well please. It does not belong here in this thread.
  3. Please leave the political commentary out of this thread. It will not be tolerated.
  4. Lady Grey is Early Grey with citrus notes from peel and reduced bergamot. Its pretty good on its own, cold or hot with a large sploosh of rum in it. Normally my tea has to be NATO and strong enough to stand my spoon up in it. But the Grey's are a nice change.
  5. No problems, but to avoid confirming it, please read the rules carefully
  6. Link There you go matey
  7. And the no eBay rule, the no repeat post rule and the no selling items out of the buy and sell area or his own traders area rule, before flouncing off with accusations of being anti French. We don't have advertising on the site as a revenue generator, therefore we do not accept traders advertising their wares outside of their own area on site. Kusti is not Arctic Decals, therefore he is just giving a heads up.
  8. Takes up less space than the mossie though. Length of the mossie is 13.5m and wingspan 16.5m. Versus the Lightning at 16.8m and 10.6m Certainly doable.
  9. From speaking to the Airfix team a few years ago, the gist was it had to be an iconic aircraft. My definition of that would be a type that would be instantly recognisable as that aircraft by the general public. Most people would recognise a Spitfire, a Messerschmidt etc. But a Vampire, Gladiator etc? To that end, I would take a punt at 3, maybe four aircraft that would meet that: For the RAF - Hawk or Lightning. For the USMC - Corsair. For the USN - Hellcat. Much as I would love to see a Bucc or a Spey Toom, I think it would be a pipe dream for a bit longer. Mind you, any of the four I would be happy with.
  10. Happy Birthday

    August 24 2012. Hover your mouse cursor over your user name and its there
  11. Not a site issue I'm afraid matey. You have either not ticked the box that says remember me, or have a setting, cleaner or AV that blocks or clears your cookies and cache. Your log in prefs are kept in cookies on your machines
  12. On a holiday until they come back with anything other than advertising
  13. Which will be removed as well. Abide by the 100 post rule, it's here for a reason.
  14. Gents. Re-read the rules about swearing and refrain from doing so on here.
  15. Bob, It is not confusing, the buy and sell area rules clearly state: Only post items for sale/wanted/for trade in the buy sell area and nowhere else on the site. We would ask for no commercial trading in the buy/sell area. If you are a trader and would like to sell here, please contact the moderating team and arrange for your own forum You were offering for sale multiples of a single item produced by you which generate profit, that is trading. As explained to you before, the buy and sell area is for members to move on unwanted kits and hopefully regain some of the initial cost. Not members using the site as a convenient gateway to move items without paying fees for auctions, web hosting or advertising. In other words, acting as a trader or in your case as a cottage industry producer and trader. BM doe not profit from the buy and sell area (unlike the well known auction sites) and in return it offers the Mod team nothing but headaches when something goes wrong. You were offered the option of a trading area and refused.
