      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. Hi Tony I hope you are well. What cracking progress, the hinges are inspired. I must confess I don't have time to read all of the thread and am feeling a bit bad for not being able to get on here for a while Sorry to everyone. I have been busy what with work and the loft conversion. I would like to wish you and everyone on here a very Happy and Healthy New Year. Keep up the good work. I have managed to dig a model out of storage and will do a bit on it tonight hopefully along with a Loco. All the best Chris
  2. Hi Tony I hope you are well and you survived the murderous trip through the villages of Midsomer, looks a nice area to live but you never know what or who is round the corner !!! I have not had much time to come on line what with work and the Loft conversion which is progressing very nicely (Now with three bedrooms upstairs well the studwork in place etc. I have finally finished moving stuff around/packing up and storing and can start to relax a bit before getting more involved with the building work. What cracking work you have done this has come along a treat and looks awesome, the engine framework is a masterpiece and the radiator assembly simply superb, great ingenuity. Keep up the good work. Apologies but I don't have time to be online much at the moment. All the best Chris
  3. Hi V Looking very nice indeed, the shot along the platforms looks particularly good, great curves. The oil staining on the track and ballast looks particularly effective. Keep up the good work and hope the exhibition goes well. All the best Chris
  4. Wow thanks guys, I have since reworked some of the weathering and done some pipework in the cab, when I get time I will try and post some piccies. Thank you for your kind comments All the best Chris
  5. Very nice indeed, great work, it is all about having fun. If you are interested have a look on the model railway site RMWEB as there is a section on Micro and boxfile layouts which is amazing seeing what people can do with a very small space . Keep up the good work All the best Chris
  6. Wow what a beautiful build, simply superb, I wish I had your scratch building skills, looks absolutely amazing. Thanks for sharing. All the best Chris
  7. Hi Tony I hope you are feeling better soon. I have just caught up. The Cuda is looking great so far, the extra work you are putting in looks great too. Also please pass on to Raphael my congratulations on his superb defiant, it looks fab. I am sorry not to have been on for a while but, I have been packing my possessions and putting into storage, I have tried leaving some modelling stuff out but not sure how long before I will have to pack that up too. Work has started here at BBB towers and is well underway (no heating at the moment though for the last week and is now very cold without all the insulation to but will be worth it). Still got packing to do too but thought I would grab a bit of time online tonight. Keep up the good work All the best Chris
  8. My Compliments General on a stunning build, looks gorgeous. Fantastic work as always. All the best Chris
  9. What a cracking story and great builds, looks great and as said before the bullt holes and muzzle flash look the business, I remember attempting bullet holes on a model many moons ago and it did not go anywhere near as good as these. Thanks for sharing. All the best Chris
  10. Another cracking build Tony, looks great, do love the lines of the Mustang specially in Roundels. I built the ICM MkIII and enjoyed that immensely. I now have another kit on the wishlist, SWMBO is not going to be pleased you know!!! Thanks for sharing All the best Chris
  11. Hi Neil Wow, these to are looking mighty fine, what a lovely camo finish and the extra details really bring to life. Keep up the good work fella All the best Chris
  12. Hi Tony Kit fit looks nice ( I hope the 1/48th version is as good) and unusual with the parapods, I am glad they were able to communicate with the pilot otherwise you would get the shock of your life when the trap doors opened otherwise !!! Nice images of the Autumnal garden, Robin and Butterfly, we had a Red Admiral in my sons bedroom the other day released it safely to a sheltered spot in the garage as it was night time, it will have the opportunity to fly away at the weekend hen the final bits from the loft come down. We also had a very large Bumble bee (poss queen) looking for somewhere warm to spend the winter, trouble is it tried doing this in Mrs BBB's work trouser pocket and gave her quite the shock when she took them into the house, needless to say I freed the friendly fury creature in a sheltered spot in the garden. What wonderful encounters, I don't have any tame birds though as our Cat is particularly efficient at catching small creatures of all sorts, mainly Mice though. Keep up the good work. All the best Chris
  13. Very nice Bucc indeed, such a lovely looking aircraft, great wok All the best Chris
  14. Hi Bill Sorry for my unauthorised absence, I have just caught up again, Glad to hear you are getting on top of the Cancer and hope that it stays away for good. The Bucc looks great too. Keep up the good work All the best Chris
  15. Great detailing Martin, the seats look fabulous and your extra work is going to pay dividends. Keep up the good work . All the best Chris
