      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".

Wheels Up or Down - What's your opinion?

I just thought of something for those that scratch build their own display bases.  If you stagger the height of the rods on your model builds, you could potentially save on shelf space.  Essentially, the base itself and not wingspan, determines how close together they sit on the shelf.

I've done this with game miniatures for years. It saves tons of space. Plus if you standardize your stand sizes, the models look like they are flying in formation. 

 

I've always built my kits wheels down, but I think I'm changing my mind.  The biggest influence has been that Bandai started marketing stands for their Gundam kits and nice stands on their Star Wars kits.  It really improves the looks imho.

 

 

That and watching guys like CedB build here. They look like they're having fun. That's all I'm looking for when I start a new build.

Fun is the name of the game for me - with my skills I'm never going to impress anyone - so I might as well just enjoy myself ^_^
