      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. Thank you very much for theses dug out builds. Patrick
  2. Hello I worked on my Delta last weekend and here are the results. First the Spannish Delta with every seat and no safety belts. I added the curtains as we can see some on pictures. I glued the fuselage and the wings. There are some gaps to fill and the horizontal tail is to be sanded to get the right shape on the trailing edge. Next the TWA mail cargo with the same work done and to do... This time I chose to discard the seats and the curtains to save weight for the mail bags. To be continued... Patrick
  3. Hi This is a very nice kit you have made here. 25 years ago I built the same kit but I chose light blue for the fuselage. It could be interesting I am building another one but I am waitong for a possible Czech kit in the future. Patrick
  4. Another nice milestone in your historically detailed finished kits. Patrick
  5. Hi Those Potez 63 on the pictures are French and probably of the 630 type. On N°38 we can see the helmet insignia of SPA 124 Jane of Arc. The one in the foreground has undoubtly French roundels underside. Patrick
  6. Helo I am using the same decal sheet to make a French aircraft in Indochina. I have painted my cockpit in Xtracolor US Interior Green. Patrick
  7. Hello Here is a little progress on my Delta. I glued and made flush all the passenger transparencies. The Spannish Delta is special with a wider access door so I had to cut the central windows and replace them with a piece of plexiglass in order to make the new window. In this particular airplane there were six windows on the port side instead of seven for the other Delta I. The TWA Delta is more standard (just two of them) with seven windows on each side. And finally I prepared both wings. To be continued... Patrick
  8. The one with the big fin? Patrick
  9. Hello Some work on my Delta. First I glued the transparencies a little bit ouside the fuselage with super thin glue. Next I sanded these transparencies to be flush with the fuselage. The fuselage engraved lines must be restored. And now here are the engines with on the left hand the Delta 1C Pratt & Whitney Hornet and on the right hand the Delta 1A Wright Cyclone. To be continued... Patrick
  10. Thank you for this video. Patrick
  11. Hello Here is my next project with the build of a couple of Northrop Delta 1. These are brand new kits made by Azur FRROM in 1/72. So far there are two boxes with civilian versions to build either : Delta 1A TWA, Delta 1B Aerovias Centrales, Delta 1C A. B. Aerotransport. And the Over Spain box to build the delta 1C under Republican colours or after the civil war. Here are the runners. Here is the instruction sheet to engrave the right shape of the Delta 1C passenger door. I am going to build first the Delta 1A when TWA flew her as a fast mail delivery transport aircraft. For that reason I suppose the passenger seats were discarded to save weight. The second kit is the Delta 1C EC-AGC in 1938/39 when flown by Republican Spannish AF as a VIP transport plane. To be continued... Patrick
  12. Bravo Tony ! Always interesting. Patrick
  13. Hello Yes I did. For that purpose I replied some of them with wider clear plastic and made a mask before painting. On the down side you can see the small round glass of the fuselage side door a little hollow. It is because I had over sanded this area. Patrick
