      DDoS and Brute Force Attacks   09/18/2016

      Since the 15th Sept until until yesterday afternoon (19th), we have been 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.   We fought this with the tools available to us, and have gathering a substantial amount of evidence against the attackers, who persisted with their attack for almost 5 days regardless of the consequences to themselves.  This was a terrible mistake on their part.  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.  Hackers are seldom able to completely mask their real identity and location, and we have some very competent people working on it on our behalf, which is already reaping the rewards.   We don't believe that this is a random attack on balance, but for 5 days 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.

I like the look of the VF-211 Tomcat and Skyraider. Also the Mossie gets a repop.

Mossie with Mollins looks nice.

Sea Harrier twin pack is a bit late, would have though they would have done that for the Falklands Anniversary.

I've had a Revell F-15E sat in the stash whilst i try to find the TwoBobs Tiger Meet 2005 decals for it.

Now after lots of frustration and moaning, Hasegawa go and solve the problem!

Thanks for the heads up Robert.

I could not open the second link.

...and release a decent, recessed panel lines FRS.1 in 1/48 scale, the only Harrier that they not released until now. I was waiting Airfix doing something, but they also disappointed me :wall: .

By the way, Hasegawa are disappointing me in the last years. Too much expensive, no armament, bad "post-it" decals, no PEs. I don't like the idea about "prove my love" to buy a kit, only by brand :whip: .

And the comedy pricing continues.....Hasegawa are fast becoming a joke in my opinion.

Their 1/72 armour kits are, by modern standards, utter rubbish and their 1/72 aircraft kits often lack even rudimentary interior detail, yet they price them as if they were the very best on the market.

European manufacturers are wiping the floor with the Japanese at the moment in my opinion.

FWIW & All the best
