      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 have some exciting new arrivals and restocks for the 1/35 and 1/72 scale Armour Brigade just arrived at the BlackMike Models secret mountain hideaway. I have restocked the popular IBG Models 1/72 scale Bedford QL truck variants which now includes the BOFORS Tractor version. The Universal Carriers have been restocked too and I have also expanded the stock with some other additions in 1/72. I have also taken receipt of the new IBG Model 1/35 scale Scammel Pioneer and Otter kits. Takom's new British APC FV432 has arrived in stock along with Takom's amazing Meillerwagen, V2 Rocket and Hanomag tractor combination. (Their Kraz 260V Tractor and T55 Tank combo is on pre-order and due in stock soon). For more details of all the new arrivals visit the BlackMike Models website here: https://www.blackmikemodels.co.uk/collections/new-arrivals Duncan B
  2. A wee update for those who are patiently waiting on their Fokker D.VIIs to arrive from me. I have been told to expect them by the end of the month now. The delay is unfortunate but may have a silver lining in the streamlined shape of a certain (seabird flavoured?) Fighter but we'll wait for confirmation on that. (Not) talking of the Albatros release, I have been told that numbers will be limited and that WnW has 'allocated' batches to Distributors rather than them being free issue. Furthermore it is unlikely that after the initial batches have been delivered there will be any more available so this does look like a truly limited edition. With that in mind I have mortgaged VP Packaging and have ordered as many as I couldn't afford and will give first priority to those who have already paid for their Fokker D.VII's and have been patient enough to wait if they would like the Albatros Trio, after that I will put the remaining kits up for sale on the website. It is the least I can do for my loyal customers as a 'thank you'. Sorry for the news about the delay to the D.VIIs but hopefully the Albatros news will make up for it. Duncan B
  3. Sorry for the delay in dispatching my D.VII's out to those kind folks that pre-ordered them from me. My Distributor has told me to expect them by the end of the month now, there is a reason for the delay but more of that once I get confirmation. (Albatros! Who mentioned Albatros?). Duncan B
  4. Terrible news, such an unassuming guy and very talented rider. Duncan B
  5. others proves difficult in

  7. Hobbyboss and Avantgarde Model Kits (AMK) are the 2 that spring to mind. Both have been reviewed on Britmodeller if I am not mistaken. Both manufacturers now have 2 options available so you have choices as to which variant you can make. Link to AMK review: http://www.britmodeller.com/forums/index.php?/topic/235001819-mig-31bbs-foxhound-148/ Link to Hobbyboss review: BlackMike Models has both the AMK versions and the original Hobbyboss kits in stock for anyone that is interested.

  8. Makes me want to break out another Eduard 110 from the stash! Duncan B

  10. Beautiful review, thanks for sharing it with us. Duncan B
  11. No, it's still in stock with me anyway. Duncan B
  12. I can now confirm I will be getting the Jasta 5 Trilogy in but it's a bit early yet to be able to confirm the price other than to say it will be very competitive as usual Duncan B
  13. Hi Rick I'll try and remember to let you know when they come in however I'll update this thread when they arrive anyway. Cheers Duncan B
  14. Can't say I know the technical aspects of a real A-4 but I do know a nicely made model when I see one (or more). They all look very nicely made and painted to me, even if they don't have the exact number of rivets in place. Duncan B (now about that odd panel on the back end of the Zoukei Mura Phantom )
  15. I see a hernia coming on lifting all those big boxes! Duncan B
