      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. I think the dayglo decals are rather uncooperative because they're printed over a white undercoat to prevent showthrough . Fantasy Printshop do dayglo decals which don't have the white beneath making them very translucent and pretty much useless . Hot water , as recommended above , followed by several coats of the strongest decal solvent you can find seems to be the only solution besides painting the dayglo , which is a nightmare in itself .
  2. Just as a point of information , Hannants currently have the Xtrakit Spitfire 22 on special offer at around 6 quid . It would be an ideal source of a Spiteful-type tail for the Pegasus kit to save the bother of scratchbuilding . The kit has numerous dimensional issues , but the tail's apparently pretty good . There may well be various detail parts which would prove useful for improving the Pegasus kit also .
  3. Have to agree with BeastieBoy that it looks brilliant in yellow . So nice to see a Ferrari that's not red .
  4. Saw a real rarity in Nantwich the other day - a Mk1 Cavalier coupe . Essentially just a hatchback Manta with Vauxhall badges , but a rare car even when they were new . Don't think I've ever seen one in the flesh before .
  5. One thing to bear in mind with X22 & indeed any of the Tamiya gloss colours is that they take far longer to dry fully than you would expect . They seem to be dry pretty quickly , but can take days to fully harden . I've picked models up after a couple of days & still left fingerprints in the paint .
  6. Just had a look & they look great . I'm looking forward to them arriving in the UK .
  7. Thanks Jan E-mail inbound John
  8. Hi Jan Can you please inform me of the process for obtaining replacement parts from AZ Model ? I recently bought 2 of your Spitfire LF MkXVI kits (AZ7204) & found that one of the resin exhaust stacks in one of the kits was damaged . Best regards John Green Nantwich , Cheshire
  9. It may even have been true . Our dog once ate one of the tailplanes from my girlfriend's 1/144 Hunter . It came back a day or so later , but not in the best of condition
  10. You don't need fake rust on a Transit - even if you buy a brand new one , I'm sure it'll be rusting for real in a short space of time . Sadly , rustproofing is the one thing Ford have never really got the hang of .
  11. That new version looks great . I'm not a WW1 modeler generally , but I'm SO having one of them
  12. Ford Escort Mk II Group 4 rally car Ford Escort Mk II RS2000 Jaguar E-Type 3.8 Litre Series 1
  13. Saw a nice 105E Anglia on Middlewich Road near Nantwich the other day . 2 tone blue with whitewall tyres - looked really smart . Going to the other extreme of car ownership , I forgot to mention that late last year at the same place I saw a Cobra Daytona - presumably a replica of some sort , but a fabulous sight nonetheless .

  14. Make that a couple more - both Work In Progress & I flew regularly with 9AEF when we were in the Air Cadets in the late 70's , so I reckon it's likely we've both been up in the 9AEF aircraft .
  15. Can you tell me where you acquired the wheels ? John Green Nantwich , Cheshire
