      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".

Or is it the power of prayer, mine from the airfix phantom thread Our Phantom who art in Hannants Airfix be thou name Thy stash be done Thy will be done in cammo as it is in heaven Give us this year our annual demand and forgive us our rantings As we forgive you for not doing one before and lead us not unto ebay but deliver us from bidding For thine is the FGR2 the Spey, the Alcock and Brown Forever the best Airfix
  8. I'm thrilled and devastated at the same time to see this GB. Thrilld as I love all thing whirly and devastated because my kit building days are over. We downsized in the Summer and there simply isn't the room, the price of financial independence LOL. I passed on 2 Italeri 1:48 HU 5's to my nephew from my now defunct stash, I'd have been torn between 2 tone green Northern Ireland or blue and red Culdrose. Looking forward to seeing all the masterpieces, give it hell boys
  9. As long as its a heli I'd be thrilled, not quite a thrilled as the Phantom though
  10. Airfix just tweeted this Airfix ‏@Airfix 19m19 minutes ago This guy flew over to say Hi on a recent research trip, distracting us from important work! But what were we measuring? That's the question!
