      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. Ideal kit for a quick project. Good luck
  2. This one certainly looks as if it's loaded for action
  3. Great to see an uncommon subject getting some love and attention then being brought to completion in the gallery. No need to apologise for that
  4. This really is looking lovely. Perhaps I've a biased opinion in favour of the Belgian Starfighter given that it featured in the first proper reference book I ever bought for a modelling subject but I'm enjoying the chance to watch you work on this one.
  5. Given the panel van is an eligible subject in itself for this GB it makes for a great addition to an overall diorama with your F-15
  6. Thank you @helios16v, there's nothing else I can add in reply @ColinChipmunkfan other than to say welcome to the list Hopefully we will get a few more names on the list and then make it through the voting to conduct the next edition of our GB in due course.
  7. My thoughts exactly The included figures add an extra measure of interest for me as well.
  8. Plenty of moulding flash seems to be a reoccuring theme with these kits. Hope it doesn't affect the fit of parts too much.
  9. A complete model in 20 days? Sure it's possible @Valkyrie Not be me due to a total lack of free time but sure some of us can do it. All you need is the right subject Pick something with a simple paint scheme that doesn't requires hours of masking and days for various coats of paint to dry. Maybe an AFV kit?
  10. I'm not always convinced on the value of etched metal sets but this one looks to be a worthwhile addition to the kit.
  11. This certainly looks a comprehensive kit and has been well received from what I've read so hopefully you'll enjoy it
  12. That was fast! A great result as well
  13. If you feel confident of finishing on time then yes please go for it
  14. It's a pity your Hurricane and Spitfire were so far on as the former has always been one of my favourite aircraft but sure another one will appear soon enough. In the meantime I'm looking forward to seeing your Shackleton taking shape and if you add a Javelin after that I'll certainly be happy to see it as well
