      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.

Yak 36 "Freehand", ART MODEL, 1/72 nd scale

15 posts in this topic

Hi everybody,
Here's my last one : ART MODEL's YAK 36 "Freehand".
A great kit molded in light grey with very nice recessed panel lines, some resin parts (pistachio colour !) including a seat, jet exhausts and rocket pods, a very clear canopy and a good quality decal sheet for the prototypes.
The only problem encountered was the instruction sheet, very vague, showing the parts positionement at random. I found help on internet !
Here is the model assembled and painted :

The cockpit tub consists of a floor, a seat, a dashboard and a control column. More details were added by building walls, side consoles and rudder pedals with plastic card.
The interior was painted medium grey and I used spare decals for the side consoles

Putting the kit together was not a problem at all, just some work to sand and prepare the parts before gluing :

Critics and comments welcome,

Excellent model of an important Soviet prototype, Pierre.

The build and finish are superb !

The original at Monino has been painted in this totally fictitious colour scheme...... :weep:

Wonderful work Pierre. The way you have rendered the worn metal finish is particularly impressive.

That's actually weathered aluminum, and you have really nailed it for the right look. Definitely nice work.

Thank you all for your comments . I am planning to make a collection of soviet VTOL aircraft, the next one might be a Yak 38 from AMODEL.

Excellent Freehand, Pierre! This particular aeroplane has somehow always reminded me of a catfish with wings!

Regards,

I think it looks really cool, both the model and the real thing! I too have this kit in the stash, General Melchett forced me to buy it!
