      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".

The thickened light grey mix is spread and feathered over gun bulges, radiator edges and so on to add shape.

And thin touches of the samre paint to subtlely simulate scratches.

The last "shape enhance" actions are made with cold ageing filter, subtle touches into some recesses and wing joints

The very last effect is some oil leaks from the engine. 

Given the need for subtlety, a filter & wash, black tone, was used.

That is an outstanding build.  I really like the way you have explained and demonstrated your techniques.

 

An incredible eye for detail and to then replicate it on such a fine scale.

 

Stunning.

 

Phil.

Thank you much Guys.

Some more pics. This kit availed me to win a master gold prize at the Italeri event in Bologna. (being awarded by the commander of 6th Squadron of Ghedi, flying on tornado planes, is not a daily business...)
