      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. Was fortunate to be working for Tickford Aston Martin at the 88 Le Mans, the atmosphere was amazing. The noise the big Jags made coming onto the Mulsanne straight was truly awesome.
  2. I know (read) that Hitler had no real appetite for invading Britain, but at the very least the RAF fighting the Luftwaffe to a point where it would have been very problematic for them to attempt it was massive. Air supremacy for the Luftwaffe over Southern England would have made it all but impossible for the US to get a foothold in Britain, no D-Day, no liberation of Europe etc. Can't wait tbh, always get quite choked up thinking what those days and weeks must have been like for those young men. Remember reading in a book that there was a Spitfire landed at an airfield but just kept rolling gradually coming to a stop as the ground crew caught up with him. The pilot was asleep, completely exhausted.
  3. Hi Mário, welcome to Britmodeller.
  4. Hi there BlueNoser, welcome to Britmodeller.
  5. Hi Juergen, welcome to Britmodeller.
  6. Hi there Crane, welcome to Britmodeller, The Tamiya Spitfire is still a great kit, a few issues but fits together great. Look forward to seeing you around the forums.
  7. I always hoped they would go on to do another series of Blackadder based on the Battle of Britain.
  8. Hi there Michel, welcome to Britmodeller.
  9. Made some progress over yesterday and today, through to step 17 on the instructions. Cockpit done; Painted Helmut up and installed him into his seat; Got the fuselage buttoned up and the prop together; Should get some more done next week.
  10. She's looking lovely Reconciler , tempting me to have a go at a Macchi floatplane, fairly simple shape, but easy to get wrong.
  11. Just got a 1/48 Hasegawa 109K-4 and an F-2 from eBay, hoping to do the K later in the GB.
  12. I don't get why people are having to write HTML codes etc, whatever happened to copy and paste. I use Photobucket too, no problem on desktop or mobile, just copy the 'img' link and paste the pic onto your thread.
  13. I think NN664 like most prototype /development airframes went through several different incarnations in it's time. Best thing is to find a photo of what it is you're looking for and go with that, off the top of my head I'm sure it had both tail sections during its development. Good luck with the build.
  14. Nice start Orso, interesting project. Got one of these kits myself, planning on trying to make the float plane version.
  15. Thanks guys, need to practise the unusual mottling, probably try a piece of sponge out first to get that tight effect. Made one of these Airfix 109's in the last GB, an E-1, found the plastic quite soft but looks good when built.
