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".
Old man who still likes to glue pieces of plastic together. However, unlike my earlier years, I no longer rig fireworks inside in order to simulate a direct air-to-air missile hit.

Main interest is Naval Aviation, matters not to me whether pulling, pushing, or reheating. My brother flew Jolly Green Giants in 'Nam, my uncle flew Hellcats in WWII, and my grandfather flew a Spad in the Great War. I flew a Chevy Corvair while enjoying a student deferment.
Build mainly in Braille Scale. The money saved from not buying larger kits helps pay for correcting all the vision problems caused by working with 1/72 scale photoetch.
