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".

Hi everyone I will try to share with you, the assembly of the speeder bike with scout trooper. I'm sorry, but my English is poor ... so I'll try to explain clearly I had already made the kit from AMT a few years ago, but the bandaï seems to me better proportioned, on the right scale. I pass quickly on the contents of the kit with a picture that summarizes all the parts of the box: The molding is very nice and the assembly could be done without glue, like the gundams It is on the scout trooper that there will be the hardest work. The only advantage (for me) of this mounting option is that you can mount and disassemble the miniature as you want ... easy for testing and mounting. The head will be disassembled to hide the mask before painting: Then I assembled the bust. The joints will make it possible to give a dynamic position to the figurine and which will be specific to each assembly The legs are then assembled on the bust, The knee protectors allow to hide the joints of the knees, but the ankles look like "toy". The arms are assembled, one hand on the handlebars and the other is in blaster shot position On the side of the speeder, I assembled the stabilizers, very well detailed, with a small line of joint that must disappear The speeder is fully assembled to give a definitive look to the figurine I will replace the plastic cover with a more realistic cover. For this I remove the fixing studs On the figurine side, the articulations are blocked with glue, then filled with milliput. They will be smoothed later with "Mister surfacer" The thrust flaps are modified to be in a semi-open position, and different from each side. See you soon, guys
