      DDoS and Brute Force Attacks   09/18/2016

      From the day following upgrade to the new forum software, 15th Sept until the 19th, we were under a concerted attack by a person or persons using a number of 'bots and other people's Proxy networks to carry out what is called a Distributed Denial of Service attack, which is a method by which these 'bots submit thousands of requests to the website per second to overload the server and bring the site to its knees.  While this was going on, they were also making Brute Force attacks on our remote communications port to try and breach the server so they could do anything from format the hard drives to change ownership of the site, and bombarding the mailserver with similar bogus requests, some of which left some rather telling details behind.  This was followed up a couple of days later with a further attack that left more data to sift through, which we have passed on to our IT forensics people.On the advice of our Lawyer and fellow member JohnT, we yesterday informed the National Crime Agency and requested their assistance with the matter, and in an ongoing dialogue with them to find the culprits, so we are allowing them access to the server and its logs.    We don't believe that this is a random attack on balance, but for 5 days and a further evening we had to put up with some disturbance and interruption to the usually fast response of the website as we are seeing now that the attack has ended.  We will prevail, and don't worry about it.  We were the target, and these people will not win.  Karma will catch up with them   Mike, Greg, Dave & Julien.

Eduard PSP Colour Base

1:72 Eduard

Pierced Steel Planking (PSP), also known as Marden Matting, was a perforated metal plank developed in the United States and used in the construction of temporary runways. A simple idea, PSP allowed a relatively small team of engineers to create a sizeable runway in a matter of days.

Eduard’s PSP base is comprised of a single piece of injection moulded plastic on which is moulded a convincing surface detail of interlocking steel plates. It is pre-painted, so in theory it can be used straight away. In my opinion it will look better with a wash of thinned matt brown paint or, better still, brown pigment, in order to depict a more realistic dusty or muddy finish.

Conclusion

This diorama base couldn’t be more user-friendly if it tried. No construction or painting is required, although in my opinion it will look even better under a coat of paint. Equally pleasing used on its own or as part of a larger diorama, this is a good value and innovative product.

While it is 1:72 thank you, what are the dimensions of the piece, if you have it to hand

As far as I can tell the size is approximately 15.2 cm X 22.9 cm. This is a "tight fit" for a single engine ww2 type parked at an angle but as you can see from the photo it will more or less fit.

The dimensions of the 1/48 version of this is ...164 mm x 234mm (this is from a different source - the 1/72 and 1/48 may be the same). Unfortunately, at that size, it's very small indeed and the wings will hang over.

In my opinion. eduard has made these products too small, at least for my interests, whcih is a shame.
