      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. Haha, thanks mate. Wasn't too bad at all really. I just started at the back and made my way forward!
  2. Overdue update and i've just cracked on and forgotten about posting pictures along the way. Kit was painted a mixture of 70% white to 30% Flat Gull Grey. I'm fairly happy with the result. Once dried and glossed, the decals were added. A 3 hour job, but they went on well: Sealed in with a top coat of gloss, ready for a panel wash. More soon. Dave
  3. Great, thanks Andre. Is the 36375 the undersides with 36270 and 36118 on the upper surfaces?
  4. Resurrecting this thread somewhat, but can anyone tell me what the correct shades of grey are for the Polish Mig-29s? I've picked up a set of Model Maker decals, but as before, they've no colour call outs. The darker grey looks to me to be Gunship grey, but i'm unsure on the other shades. Thanks
  5. Pre-order is for the G model. Is it to be released before the H model?
  6. Hello all, I'm planning on building a modernised Croatian Mig-21 in the grey scheme: https://img.planespotters.net/photo/625000/original/117-croatian-air-force-mikoyan-gurevich-mig-21_PlanespottersNet_625245.jpg (net image) I've a set of ModelMaker decals for the above scheme, however it doesn't give any colour call outs. I'd be fairly confident Light Ghost Grey would suffice for the airframe, but would anyone be able to tell me what colour the shock cone and leading edge of the ventral strake would be? Also, on a different topic, are these jets only Air To Air or would they still carry the likes of the UB-16 rocket pod? Thanks Dave
  7. Cheers mate. Where did you have an issue?
  8. This is true, though i'm only basing the information on a F-14D release on another members' information! As stated above, hope all is well with Martin. hopefully we'll hear more of an update soon.
  9. More done over the last few days and the kit is just about ready for masking and priming. I had a bit of trouble with the wing root - a gap appeared but this was cured with some liquid cement applied to the join. A small bit of filler was required to the join at the rear of the centre section of the wings on the lower fuselage. My fault as opposed to the kits. A few small areas to clean up and some photo etched parts to add - then masking and priming. More soon. Dave
  10. If this is true, could be a game changer. The Tamiya kit really is superb. Would almost prefer a B model, but can't complain if Tamiya do pop up with a D. Certainly the layout of the A model would suggest later variants are to follow.
  11. 2 late types for me - Polish and Hungarian...
  12. Wasn't working on the mobile, got it on the laptop
