      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. Hiya Ian,...found this on facebook and thought that you might find it interesting;


  2. I think non compatibility with RAF tankers is pretty much a major oversight, who specifies equipment these days? To many free lunches and the 'it will be alright on the night approach'is not good for the military.
  3. Very nice Tony,I see the green paint is taking a bit of a hammering now Cheeers Ian
  4. Beautiful model,I remember these on the ramp at Prestwick Airport with Neptunes and EC121s,happy days Well done Ian
  5. Nice job Andy,dont see many Freighters built. My problem is [age] that I remember these trundling over Prestwick en route to Renfrew they were in view for about 20 minutes. Ian
  6. Very nice,I remember a flight in one of these G-ALFR if I remember rightly, smooth flight but noisy. Ian
  7. Hi Folks The last Meteor F8 for a while, still got an NF11and T7 on the go so start despairing now.Still need to do another couple from these sheets at sometime in the future although the kit seems to disappearing fast. This one is another with the excellent Marmaduke decals applied depicting the CO's aircraft from 19 Squadron. Painted as usual with Xtracolor HSS. Cheers Ian
  8. Didn't take you long to fit that wheel and prop,I only left it with you at 3.30 yesterday. Have you nothing else to do? Ian
  9. Hi Folks After a few Meteor builds I rescued this from the shelf of doom it was dumped there as I had the old age problem of working out the angles for the was a bit of a problem trying to work out what was silver and white as the decal instructions were a bit vague, not the best I've done but it's finished at last after around 7 months of swearing at it. ian
  10. Another nice one Tony,not content with running out of black paint you have started on the yellow. You know how I just love yellow paint!!!!! Ian
  11. Hi Folks Continuing the theme here is another Airfix Meteor,this time in the markings of 263 Squadron. Had to photograph this on the workbench as SWMBO had commandeered the kitchen table . Cheers Ian
  12. A little bit of assumption here regarding the Meteor FR9 serials,Cold War Shield supplied the following The rear one is coded B-X serial no WX978 as this is recorded having the old style canopy,B-Y had the clear vision canopy so is it safe to assume that the photo depicts WX978? The nearest one looks like it is coded B-T which again has the old style canopy the contenders for this code are VZ609 or WB113. VZ609 is definitely recorded as B-T,WB113 has a question mark against this code indicating that the coding is uncertain. Hope this helps. Cheers Ian
  13. Hi Folks This time an aircraft from 610 Squadron finished in Xtracolor HSS and decals as per the title Cheers Ian
  14. The original awful blue Spitfire closely followed by the original Gladiator,those struts were a very fast learning curve. From memory the 109 and Lysander were around the same time. Ian
