      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. which,by consensus among S.C.W. modellers,is an appropriate grey?even the eduard instructions are vague,quoting rlm02 or rlm 63.rlm o2 certainly looks too dark to me
  2. revell/special hobby seafire xv
  3. i think the mac 34 was basically the infantry chatelerault mod 24 with a side mounted drum replacing the vertical box magazine,and the butt removed.don't know if anyone makes 48 french infantry weapons,aeroclub made a 72 ac 34 so might be worth checking to see if they made a 48 version
  4. 1s pursuit(snowy owls)
  5. can anyone please suggest a suitable olive green for a prewar p26?and would it be gloss finish
  6. I think revell have upped their decals considerably(possibly cartograf?)but i have the icm do215,and the decals look better quality than their older releaSES
  7. saw this on ebay,6.99 the 72nd a misprint?it appears on the box also!
  8. MB5

    just picked the az kit up at the mpm shop in prague;looks very nice.the sheer size of it next to a spitfire is unbelievable.
  9. i have used a slightly different method;prime with white acrylic spray,acoat of finished colour,(it doesn't need to be all that thick or opaque)then ru down with scotchbrite
  10. hi,going to prague for a weekend in a couple of weeks.does anyone please know of a fairly central model shop,open on a saturday,where i could pick up some eduard overtrees?
  11. i struggle with masking;now i tend to paint with acrylic over the clear parts and reove unwanted paint after 24 hours with a matchstik trimmed to a chisel edge.
  12. i have the 48th revell kit.the boxing includes the ventral turret,but no details of the spanish bomer variant.could anyone please help with a source for the building and paint instructions for the earlier kit,which included these details
  13. my first encounter with airfix was the guards band,plus a "set"of humbrol paints(5 or 6 glass phials of paint),for my 6th birthday.first proper kit was the airfix stuka,though i was tempted by the bagged aurora cougar,but it was a shilling dearer.
  14. i used to use humbrol 78,but the last 3 tins i got won't dry
