      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. Hi guys and girls I have a quick question to ask for anyone who has built the tamiya red bull rb6 f1 car. Right so basically I have bought one recently with the plan to make it into the late season car with the full detail set. This won't be the first time I have built this car (it's the 5th one. 1 binned, 1 Toro Rosso, 1 box stock, 1 but made by ejan and this one). So having made a few already I know about the issue with the decals reacting to tamiya ts13 clear a little and also about zero paints pre mixed clear absolutely destroying the decals, why one went in the bin out of rage, so what I would like to know is has anyone built one and used a clear coat over the decals with them not reacting or melting and if so what make of clear was it so I don't mess up a build again. Thanks Shaun
  2. Is anyone building or does anyone have stashed a decent quality large scale kit of the M48A3 at all.....If so is there any chance they could take a few photos of the detail around the lower hull and suspension arms for me please? I'm trying to build a reasonably accurate 1/72 version and the kit I'm using (the only one there is) has detail that I strongly suspect to be spurious as the kit is also intended to be built as an M48A2 or M48A2C. I've some reasonable reference photos, but none of them seem to show what I want, probably because tanks aren't usually displayed upside-down with the wheels off.
  3. Hi I hope someone can help me here. I was given the Revell 1/32 Mossie for Christmas, and want to make a few improvements. I seem to remember someone on here mentioning they'd contacted someone at the UK Tamiya importers and had managed to buy the spruces from the 1/32 Spitfire kit in order to get the Merlin engine. Am I imagining things or is this possible? If anyone can help that would be great, if not I apologise for making things up! Cheers Al
  4. I am about to do a double Corsair build an F4U-1a (Pacific) WW2 bird and an F4U-4 Korean Bird, I have and can find plenty of info regarding the airframes etc, but having trouble with pilot figure colours. My first attempt was to use Humbrol 103 cream for the WW2 pilot uniform, but this is definitely wrong can anyone give ma a better match? As for the Korean War pilot figure should he be dressed as per the WW2 pilot or be totally different, I.e in green? TIA. Doug.
  5. I've been watching the 2nd animated series of this, and have kind of got into it and kind of fancy a Yamato for the collection, so I'm wondering which one of the many kits in different scales offers the best value versus detail and size, with a view to keeping it reasonably cheap. I can't seem to find a model of the Seagull either - does one exist, or has it been overlooked so far? I like the design, and it reminds me a lot of an OV-10 Bronco
  6. I remember building this as a kit, hand painting it in some kind of yellow, and applying the decals to the matt finish and stumbled upon it while I was looking for an N-Gauge loco for Booty Mike. Can anyone tell me which kit this is, whether it is accurate, and whether it's worth renovating, or should I scrub it? Any tips on renovation,making it more accurate, or which recycling box it should go in will be received with thanks
  7. My friend is looking for replacement Decals for the old Monogram 1/32 Hawker Hurricane. Seems the decals in this kit where notoriously bad. The kit was in BP188 JV-Z 6 Sqn Egypt 1941 Markings. I had a good look around and other markings for the Mk IIc in 1/32 seem to be a bit thin on the ground. Any help with the matter would be greatly appreciated. Regards Terry
  8. Hi Everyone, I have already posted this in the Wanted section already, but I am just wondering if anyone has a copy of the instructions for the Italeri 1/72 EA-6A Wild Weasel kit, number 051 that could be e-mailed to me ? I know from researching this kit on the internet that it is an old kit, but I am still hopeful. Thanks in advance, Rick
  9. A few years back now on a lazy sunny Saturday I was wondering down the flight line at RIAT Fairford when I saw this. A true vision of beauty to my delight on a small table just a stones throw away the crew were selling a special edition of the Heller kit complete with new box art , decal sheet and painting guide and most importantly a small piece of paper with an e mail address telling me where I could get a resin nose bump and cheek blisters. After getting my pass stamped from her who must be obeyed , a nice chat with the aircrew and the exchange of beer tokens I was the proud owner of the said beastie . Now some where between RAF Fairford and Cardiff I lost the e mail address the kit went in the attic and was forgotten . Well the other day I re discovered the old kit and now really fancy giving it a bash . I ask you do any one know where I could get the resin cheeks and nose blister to finish this beauty. regards Glenn.
  10. Hi guys, There are a few amongst you that are quite the Lancester buffs, and I'm putting out a call to you fellows to see if you're willing to participate in a project with a mainstream kit manufacturer. If you know your onions on the Lanc to the ultimate degree, have references, accurate plans and so forth, can you let me know ASAP and I'll pass your details on to the kit manufacturer to make contact. Only put yourself forward if you genuinely do "know it all". You'll get found out if you're not! You can show your interest on this thread, but only PM me your email addresses and contact details, as we don't want screen-scraping spammers getting your addresses from the public forums. Mike
