      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 thought this was the rumourmonger section, not lets all discuss how to run a model kit company
  2. I think they are Frog moulds which ended up in Russia and have been used by a few companies See the link for the history of this one I think Mister Craft and master Craft are the same companies
  3. We are modelers, collectively we will never all be happy with a kit, it amazes me how many moaners are out there. We have never had it so good, countless manufacturers, great accessories, sites like this to share knowledge, great tools and paints, countless resources and somne wonderful kits to make As I have said before, if Airfix or other manufacturers could shrink the real thing and make it into a kit, there would be someone on here saying they got something wrong. Lets face it modelers are not meant to be 100% satisfied
  4. I see from hattons that Hornby are announcing their 2017 range on 4th Jan, so presume Airfix will be the same day?
  5. thanks Guys, would never have guessed as I didn't know it was ever fitted with a canopy.
  6. Came across this image of Wrens preparing for a photo recognisance flight in a book on the RN, but can't make out the aircraft. Any ideas, thought it might be a Gladiator, but the wheel struts look wrong.
  7. The Advent Calendar is back Todays is 40% off the Swift, but have been known to tease with new kits before
  8. I had an idea, and suggested it to Airfix that they produce a range of 1/24 ground and Air crew figures, plus accessories in the same vain as the 1/48 ground crew figures. I expect I am not the 1st to suggest this, but I am sure it would be welcomed by many of us to enhance the Typhoon or Mossie etc Probably not in their plans, but we can hope
  9. So what might we expect on Friday in this weeks workbench? I would suspect after the new tools, we might get some of the new variant info, sea hurricane, AEW Shack etc unless these will be held back until the full list is issued at Christmas (as there is only potentially 2 left before Christmas, Friday 2nd & Friday 16th Dec). Here's hoping for more good choices
  10. Words fail me, a fantastic build that could be the real thing a tremendous model really amazed thanks for posting regards Rich
  11. One of my favs, lovely build cheers Rich
  12. Lovely build, really looks like it's got the bonnet up. Not seen a detail set for the Mig 15 before. Thanks for sharing cheers Rich
  13. Jon Great build, much more appealing than the box options, might have to think about getting one of these. Cheers Rich
