      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. Bit of a slow start... work and life are busy at the moment. I haven't announced it on here but September I'm going to be a dad... Managed to get the nose on, and for something that looks easy it certainly wasn't. Big gaps remain, I tried several ways and I just couldn't get it sitting right. It's almost like the plastic parts are too small.... Done now though, will sort the gaps a bit later on. There is also a brace inside the cockpit to stop the parts from collapsing when gluing together, this will be cut and sanded as much as possible to make way for the seats. Wings pushed on for photo..
  2. Would Li-2's be allowed?
  3. Ask these guys -
  4. Really nice, you've done a great job.
  5. I have a part built one from years ago, going to get this conversion as the front nose doors are missing and a cowling.. Was only looking at this the other day through Google but I didn't realise it was a current build! I never bothered to check, just assumed it was an old thread. Good to see it's very much alive and kicking.
  6. Really nice... love the fact it's on the runway too..
  7. I think I have 300ish kits, I said I'd cap it at 250-300...but I'm sure I've gone over.... I defo have with dads stash he gave me, but I'm not counting them! I wouldn't say I'm a collector, but in the last year or so I have picked up some really rare kits & I plan on building them, but who doesn't.. so where does that put me. Builder or collector. (if they don't get built) As for building, I am doing well.. for me. Got lots to paint and lots in progress, so in the next year I should have a decent amount finished, ready for the next batch to build..
  8. They have no front door on the RAF versions so that needs filling and the rear end if different as they have a clam door, not a round one piece one. Argosy Walkaround by Radleigh Bushell, on Flickr
  9. Knowing Amodel well, if that was 1/72nd the fuselage would be either split in two (making 4 pieces for the fuselage) or fibreglass. Their 1/144th stuff all have full length fuselages.
  10. Superb Craig. I really wish in a way we didn't have all these great models as I can't find the time to fit them all in! It's a Russian Aircraft lovers wet dream at the moment with the likes of AMK, Amodel, Avis, ICM & Modelsvit releasing goods every couple of months! Still, I'm not complaining... What's next mate?
  11. We did, but I didn't do to much as I've done it before and was just happy to fly around in a Yak taking photos. Got a great pic of my brother in YAKX banking away.
  12. Cheers Peter, yes I took that at the end of the day. All shut down with lots of happy faces around. Here is another from our flight.
  13. I had forgot all about this GB then I saw the title a few days ago just as I was about to start this, the Amodel 1/48th Yak-52. Lovely little kit but typical Amodel, flash here and there, nice decals & etch. I flew in a Yak-52 last year down at Popham, G-YAKI, a superb experience and one I hope to experience again soon and my main reason for building this kit, although I will be doing it in the kit decals, but I would love to build a G-YAKI! as for the model, two photos of the boxart and what you get. Thanks for looking in.
  14. Can't wait to see this built, I love these and will get one myself one day.
