      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. Thanks Cookie, the Italeri now is a bit wider than the Airfix fuselage, but not too bad. Thanks Paul! John
  2. Thanks Gene It's not in the B.57 weapons TO. I will have a look at the F.100 stuff I have. John
  3. Round one of the green stuff, John
  4. @Gene K do you know which TO. the illustration is from? John
  5. As a matter of interest, the parts count so far is, of the 36 parts used in the build so far they break down as Airfix 11 Italeri 9 Me 6 FROG 4 C-Scale 2 Pavla 2 CMK 2 John
  6. Almost set for join up of the fuselage to nose, all being well, this will be the last BIG job! Although the camera nose is white metal and quite heavy I've added a wee bit more nose weight, just in case! John
  7. Cookie @Cookenbacher, I can't find a definitive date for the ADC Grey but I suspect mid/late 70,s on to the end of the B.57's time in the USAF. I have dug out the seat mod date. TCTO 1B-57-928 introduced 28th January 1971 this was to introduce to the whole Canberra fleet the ESCAPAC 1C-6. Apart from the EB.57D's for some reason. John
  8. Cookie@Cookenbacher I'm sure the tanks will be fine, nice work with the NMF, I only use rattle cans so I can't add to the debate, but can you remind me again what time frame we are talking about, as it's a possibility the EB.57B you want to build could be in ADC Grey? John
  9. Cookie @Cookenbacher I can't remember now what I used exactly, but it would have been an off the shelf drop tank, I have a strong feeling it could have been from the 1/72 Airfix Hunter. John
  10. In that case Tony you'd be right at home in my work shop! John
  11. Thanks Paul @mcdonnell, I hope to get a bit of paint on the cockpit tub today John
  12. Thanks Tony, I don't think you'd like the state of my operating theatre if you saw it though :-) John
  13. "Thanks John, good to know about the fuselage lengths - the tandem cockpit provides a bit of an optical illusion I guess. I'm really glad that you're here, as now I can ask you lots of questions without clogging up your excellent thread." No problems @Cookenbacher I'm on standby, ready to help if you need any! Good work so far on the engraving. One thing I's like to say regards replacing the rear fuselage with the the Airfix one, I don't think that would do the trick, the problems with the Italeri fuselage starts just after the bomb bay, the only way I can see is to do what I'm doing with mine. John
  14. Thanks Cookie, that's about it for the hard work now, I think/hope! John
