      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. 1/48 Yak Firebar, there is a seller from China with this for sale at £14.88 shipping free, the same price as the tank earlier in this thread. The seller is iousuhu(186) 99.1% as you can see has got reasonable feeback until it's looked at closely and it is very bland with it all private and one or two people having been repeated a number of times. I tried to buy it and Paypal did not decline it but I chickened out in the end. It would be a bargain if true.
  2. A "C" reg immaculate green Morris 1000 saloon on the B1040 in Huntingdonshire
  3. Bought the old Heller/Union kit of the Porsche 917 memorial collection,probably a better body shape than the Fujimi kit.
  4. It will be good news if it is a reissue of the Hasegawa tooling, (never mind the divots) or, on the other hand it could be not so good news if it is a rehash of the old ESCI tooling. Above does not indicate it is any new tool.
  5. I can't see a UK price yet. Any ideas?
  6. Monogram, excellent kit for the time and still not bad now if you can look past the raised panel lines.
  7. "gravity is temporarily suspended" How on earth do you suspend gravity and yet the rest of the world can't with out doing loops in an airplane or other things. It Was just snowing really hard when I was up the top of the page just now.
  8. The snow stops just suspended in mid air when you search for something, and the when the mouse is moved from side to side the snow blows The snow needs to be cleaned off the roundel otherwise you will be in trouble. Nice and festive though.
  9. Opened the front door today and a K reg 71 green Triumph Stag was passing, looked in good condition but it was not the green shade I thought they were. I have not seen one for years and had thought they had all gone to the rust heap in the sky!.
  10. Drakens all gone now!!!
  11. As the title says but it must have been bought, price you paid and the retail price at the time. I will start it off with a Airfix 1/24 JU 87 for £2 from Taylor and McKenneas in the early 1980's @ approx £12 retail
  12. MFH have actually named it now on thier site.
  13. Core plugs are fitted after the casting core hole has been machined to the correct size for the plugs. The core holes have no use in every day use, they are actually there to allow the casting of the internal waterways of the block or head and removal of casting sand and are plugged prior to the engine assembly. They are fitted with a stepped driver to position them the correct depth from external wall of the block and are fitted with a hammer or these days an air tool. If the area is clean and accessible fitting a new one should not take only 5-10m. Can't see any reason why a core plug should cause your problems. You should NOT have to change them in the life of any engine unless the engine has been with water or weak antifreeze.
  14. If it does have leaf spring girder forks it could well be an American bike like an Indian or similar.
  15. Delivered yesterday and it is all correct with an airliner fuselage
