      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. Goodluck! Best advice I can give you is to throw away the instructions and base painting on your research photos
  2. Considering this is a 70s kit without todays technology.. this kit looks very much too scale and accurate! its as good as todays kits just minus details.
  3. The only footage i have of this beautiful plane:
  4. A mirage F1... dream build.
  5. A 5 month build... finally ready. This kit was manufactured in 1972. Finished in alclad polished aluminum and Klear, panel washed and fully re-scribed. I was expecting worse for an early 70s kit! went together quite well. needed filling of course and the decals were nice and thick but went down well with mr mark setter/softer. Work in Progress here: THE RESULT
  6. by far the best solution is Mr setter and Mr mark softer! i built a whole tamiya f16 thunderbirds kit with it and it even worked on a 1970s kit.
  7. Leave the canopy in window cleaner that contains ammonia. it will melt right off.
  8. The screens are my favourite! the side consoles were painted individually with a fine brush.
  9. i just finished decalling a model with decals from the 70s (Airfix) with no problem at all.
  10. hehe ALL silvers seem to stink. both humbrol and revell!
  11. What is? the colour or the pattern?
  12. Its actually not that bad! very simple build. goes together pretty well considering its age. do you have THIS kit?
  13. In the photos where you applied the ripped decals it's very visible. A dotty finish because of paint drying too quickly but your lucky because your model is finished in a matt finish so it wouldn't show up.
  14. Lovely build! interesting a/c. but you seemed to have suffered a lot from orange peel leaving behind a sand paper finish
