      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.

Aires seafire 47 cockpit

7 posts in this topic

Is the seafire 47 cockpit the same as the spitfire 22/24? I have noticed Aires do separate cockpits for the spitfire 22 and 24 but only a whole detail set for the seafire and I only want to upgrade the pit really! How well does the aires spitfire pits fit into the AirFix kit?

Cheers

I've got a Grand Phoenix Seafire 47 wich actually includes an Airfix kit plus lots of Aires resin parts and PE details....The cockpit fits into the Airfix F.22/24 as a glove, but I'm not sure about the Seafire 47 and Spit F.22 using the same cokpit layout.....I suppose the Seafire should have had some different details due to the navalized natured of the plane....

Cheers.....

Also would have RATOG control if aircraft so equipped. Left hand side forward of the door edge I believe.

To be honest, in 1/48 you would struggle to see if anything was missing without a strong light and magnifying glass imho.

And you would really have to know what you were looking for!

Not to mention the fact that the Seafire 47 cockpit is black, which hides a lot of sins of omission.

I suppose that this discussion about what you see and what you don't see has been going on for a long time. The usual answer is: Good to know that it is there! Personally I think that if you make a series of say the Spitfire Mk.V, it would be an overkill to include an Aires set in every one. Here the set may be a guideline for what you can do yourself. Then, probably, an idea when you have finished your series, to make a last one where you can see "everything". But it is a good idea to study available photos to see what you can really see, and it is quite a lot, especially if you open the door and also the cockpit cover.

The cooper Detail sets (4815-4816) included everything you might need. If you find them on Ebay, buy them!

How the Cooper sets fit can be seen here:

Ah yes, the copper set is the one I really would like but I have not been able to find one! I guess there may be some hope that it is re-issued by barracuda studios as they have already released some update parts for the 47
