      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. ...Any day now...
  2. I bought all of my Pocher kits - about 7-8 of them in all - on UK Evilbay except for the Merc (in my stash still) which I bought from Pocherparts which is also UK. Roy.
  3. There is a photo in the Haynes 250 GTO manual on page 28. It states the car is at Brands Hatch 6th Aug 1962. The number is 76, on a white roundel. Roy.
  4. Some really nice models here..
  5. I had the Talk Talk router call some months back (I'm with BT so I knew it was garbage) The guy said my router was faulty and it was acting very strangely. I replied - 'Yes, it is rather weak, pathetic most of the time - your wife told me your dick is just the same'... At least he laughed as he hung up. I got that from a friend who also used to reply - 'Hang on, I'll get your wife out of bed so you can tell her'
  6. Absolutely mind boggling stuff. It's going to be a masterpiece.
  7. Eyeballs starting to go fuzzy now. Throttle linkages and more wires etc added. Time to look at bigger bits for a while methinks. Roy.
  8. If you subscribed originally, you should have had an email about the upcoming release - now March 15th nationally. If you still have your original sub number, call DeAg and say you still want to get the kit. You will get the first 5 issues FOC. Here's the new DeAg page - contact info is there. Roy.
  9. I glug red at times too Pete... The engine is now in, and some of the wiring and plumbing has been connected. Lots more to add, but the front 'picture frame' needs to go on next. If anyone wants to know anything, please ask. Roy.
  10. They are getting more and more crafty.
  11. Yes - confirmed on the DeAg forum. April 2017 for the US.
  12. He was great. Not much else to say. Very sad.
  13. Under red, I only ever use white primer. It gives the red a real 'punch'. Mind you, whatever you decide I'm sure it will look great.
  14. Seriously - many thanks for all the comments you guys - including the trainers... When it's all done, I'll post some pics. Roy.
  15. This particular C Type is one of the earlier cars with enormous H6 SU carbs. The inlet manifold is equally peculiar so I had to scratch it from tube, flat sheet, small nuts and filler... I nobbled the SU float chambers from a Revell kit and made the mug-sized bowls from tube and sheet. The plug leads are in and the engine will be fitted to the car next. Roy.
