      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. Just a small bit of progress today. I managed to fit the wings to the fuselage but unfortunately the fit was bad leaving a gap approx 0.5mm in the starboard wing joint... a little bit disappointing. So out with the plasticard and superglue/talc filler!!! While the wings set I sprayed the various bits and pieces. Thanks for looking, gazza l
  2. Wow and I'm struggling with one 109!!! gazza l
  3. Very nice work, she looks good with everything open and hanging down! gazza l
  4. Thanks very much... Eduard have done a stunning job with this resin engine set. Thank you georgeusa, I'll take a few more photos when it's finished from a few different angles. I've just had a look at your 109 build thread, seems to be coming on very nicely... it will be quite impressive in that scale. Here is a link to a tutorial by a very talented guy, on how to build and paint the Eduard DB605 engine. Cheers, gazza l
  5. Hi all. I've managed to finish the engine this evening. It was quite a complex job as some of the parts are incredibly small, but with a lot of patience and a few rude words I've completed it... although there remains a little plumbing to do in places. First of all I gave it an Alclad grey primer, followed by Alclad gloss black and finally a bit of post shading using Tamiya NATO black. I just need to pick out the other colours with a brush, seal it and then a good mucky wash! gazza l
  6. Hi everyone, A little progress over the last few days. I managed to complete the cockpit and close the fuselage. I painted the cockpit with Xtracolor enamels and picked out the small details with Vallejo model colors, this followed with a wash of AK interactive washes to give a little depth and grubbiness. A little surgery was performed on the fuselage so that the resin engine and guns should slip in. And finally the cockpit and fuselage glued together. Thanks for looking, gazza l
  7. Absolutely stunning work. I've just started this kit as part of the group build and plan to do the same scheme... somehow I don't think mine will be to your very high standard. gazza l
  8. Hi everyone, This will be my very first group build, so here goes! I've always wanted to do a 109 in desert colours but never quite got round to doing one, then Eduard released this kit which included my favourite 109 desert scheme. I was originally inspired to build one after watching the Bf109G " Black 6" completing some engine runs when it was based at Duxford in the early 90's. Here she is with engine exposed. So this is the kit in question and I also went for the resin engine, again by Eduard. Now I can recreate the above photo. This is the chosen scheme. And the resin engine set. So this is what I've manage to do so far, not much really, just separated the resin parts from their casting blocks and stuck a few gubbins to the engine block. More to follow shortly, gazza l
  9. Am I too late to join? I've only just seen this thread and by pure chance I've just started an Eduard 1/48th 109F. gazza l
  10. Good news, disaster averted... I look forward to more updates. I recently purchased their 1/48th Bf 110G kit, unfortunately the decals were missing, but a quick email to Eduard support and a replacement set was on its way, they arrived about a week later... excellent service from them. gazza l
  11. Oh dear, that's put a spanner in the work. Hopefully Eduard can sort you out with a new sprue... they're pretty good from my experience. gazza l
  12. Don't give up Mark, your nearly there once those pesky intakes are sorted. I'd go for a light rub down with various grades of Micromesh and then, as you say, a thin/wet coat at a really low psi. Good luck, gazza l
  13. Coming on nicely, can't wait to see her in proper colours. Do the MRP paints need thinning or are they airbrush ready? The future project looks rather interesting! Cheers, gazza l
  14. Interesting subject, very well executed. gazza l
  15. Beautiful work, excellent weathering. gazza l
