      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".

1/35 Dragon SD.kfz 234/1, German recce vehicle

14 posts in this topic

Here is my complete 1/35 Dragon Sd.kfz 234/1

6 PZ.Division, Austria 1945

Besides some infantry gear from the sparebox, its straight out of the box


Dunkelgelb, Olivengrün and Chokoladenbraun are from WEM

Wheel wash is Valejo and life colour mix

I used Mud brown, Ligtht dirt and Dark dirt from Flory models

I also used MIG's "oil & grease"

Varnish is Modelmaster

Decals from the kit, helped with DACO's decal solution

This is without a doubt the best armour kit I have ever build, the fit is above the scale, I used a little Mr Surface 500 two small places, thats it.

Ok I admit that the instructions are at time challenging, but use your common sense and you will be all right.

Dragon has exelled this time, the fit is so good that sometimes I ruinded the fit when painting the items,

I look forward to starting my SD.kfz 234/2.

Not much is know about this family of vehicles, only a few book are written, and since only the Sd.kfz 234/3 and Sd.kfz 234/4 have survived

the war, detail on this subtype are even more scarce

There for I have made a couple of "leadership" decisions, I have plaved several 20 MM magazines in the turret, ready for use, I have places extra

kit inside the vehicle, Being an ex recce soldier myself, we offen left extra gear on the vehicle when dismounted






Here are a few pics so you can se a little of the interior, it has some MP 40, MP 40 Magazine pouches,

gasmask carriers, helmets and amo boxes




Hope you enjoy, contructive critisism is off course welcome
