      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. For me a trip to London was never complete without a visit to Comet Miniatures, a great selection of sci-fi stuff and at one stage a basement full of oop stuff(old Frog/Matchbox et al.)
  2. Cool aircraft, a resin kit is available
  3. ...Or if you have an android device there is an app available on Google play called Hobby Color Converter, it includes a lot of the popular hobby brands including Humbrol, Tamiya, Revell, AK, Citadel, Gunze, Testors & Vallejo. The inventory option helps me from unintentional duplication of paints.
  4. Thanks for the positive comments and 'likes' folks, they are very much appreciated. As to the idea of Jet Provost in Irish markings, this is something I have given some thought to and will be taking further.
  5. Hi Folks There have been a few top class builds of the recent Airfix Jet Provost posted in RFI of late so I decided to post my humble contribution. I give you the recent Airfix 1/72 Jet Provost T3 finished in Light Aircraft Gray(from the Mr.Hobby range) and decals from the Xtradecal set for the Airfix Kit. The hi-vis markings were for the most part ok to use but getting them to follow the curve of the leading edge of the wing was less than successful with the solid areas of dayglo decals being quite rigid and brittle which resulted in cracking and splitting of the decal. I patched up the dayglo as best I could and touched up the damaged decals with some dayglo paint. I did attempt to add some of the vents/air scoops to the fuselage but did not correct the canopy as I had finished painting before I read about the canopy framing being an internal feature, for noting on the next one. Thanks for looking
  6. Hi How about build it without too much fuss and go a bit 'what if' on it, alternate colours, weird weapons fit, do a bit of a back story, you get the idea.
  7. Sean, Those rails are looking great and really add to the appearance of DDG151. I hope you are bringing it over for the table @ Telford.
  8. Airfix Jet Provost T3 x4
  9. Hi Jan, Thanks for that, 'maybe later' will be fine with me. I will be picking up one of the complete kits anyway as a Hampden is missing from my early war bomber command trio(Wellington/Whitley/Hampden) Regards Vincent
  10. Hi Jan I wonder if at some time in the future if the AZ transparencies for the Hampden might be available to purchase as a separate item in order to to allow the construction of some of those Valom Hampden kits that are gathering dust in various stashes of un-built kits? Regards, Vincent
  11. Greetings and welcome, what part of the country are you based?
  12. Masterful work, absolutle perfection to my eye. Love the way you have BB8 & Poe both 'looking' to the side.
  13. Trailer reminds me of the end credits of the re-imagined JJ Star Trek movie I suppose that as it is not due to air for another year and a half the studio don't have much of substance to show yet. watch this space
  14. That just looks so right!
  15. Also listed for pre-order with Japan:Cool in the UK
