      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".

    Do these cretins do it because it gives them a feeling of power, I wonder? If that is the case, then they REALLY need to get a life..... Chris.
  2. Hi, Randy. A very warm welcome to Britmodeller. I hope you have a great time here. Cheers. Chris.
  3. El Blanco Big-Fella-Trumpeto....... I'll get me coat. Chris.
  4. Hi, Brian. I think that Dragon make 1/6 scale figures from various conflicts. Unfortunately, I have no idea if they do any small arms sets to go with these figures, but E-Bay would be a pretty good place to start. Hope this is of some help to you. Chris.
  5. Hi, Topgun88. 


    I have a Hasegawa A-10 I'm wanting to sell. It's very possible that the post you're referring to was mine - a very helpful MOD deleted it last week.....


    You still interested?

    I believe it looks a lot like the real thing, from a distance (preferably 10 miles or greater). What a truly horrible-looking kit. What market are they aiming for? The-under-fours? Chris.
  7. This is a real tribute to your building and painting skills, my friend. It could be a still-frame from the film... Thanks for sharing. Chris. PS: Let's hope Alien: Covenant is better than the trailer makes it look (but I have my doubts).
  8. Kopro 1/48th SU-25 Soviet ground-attacker. Absolute dog of a kit. I spent about two hours trying to get the fuselage together years ago and it's maiden flight turned out to be to the bottom of my bin. Having said that, I saw a completed one at Telford a while ago and it looked great. I guess that tells you all you need to know about my building skills... Cheers. Chris.
  9. Lovely painting skills, my friend! Those flesh-tones really bring the figures to life. Thanks for sharing with us. Chris.
  10. Afternoon, All. For the last 8 - 10 days, I've had a number of kits for sale on BM. The listing was titled "Some For Sale". I've just looked and my listing seems to have been removed. Could someone please explain what's happened? Cheers. Chris.
  11. Thanks for the warning about potential traffic that weekend, PaulT 876. Chris.
  12. Considering how many years Tamiya have been going, is it inevitable that much newer manufacturers are now stealing some of their thunder? Cheers. Chris.
  13. No problem, Larry. Good luck in tracking some down. Chris.
  14. I would say take a look at Flightpath (UK)... I think that it can be found on the David J. Parkins site. Also, possibly videoaviation (Italy).... Lastly, have you looked at the Hannants website? Hope this helps. Chris.
  15. Superb work, my friend. If I hadn't known it was the 1/48th scale version, I would have sworn it was the 32nd scale big feline.... Thanks for sharing with us. Chris.
