      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".

Mk-24 and LUU-2/B seem to be quite similar one each other!

They had to be so they fit into the same dispenser.

More lovely work here. It's starting to look something really smart. Thanks for the extra info Jari it's the details like these that are the big problem for me as I do mainly AFVs and not so many aircraft.

This looks great, all the little odds and ends you've added really give it character

Decals time! Caracal decal sheet has a very thin thickness so that Microset is more useful than Gunze decal solution (too strong)

After that, I got a Humbrol acrylic clear cote before applying artistic oils (brown, black and tan) as weathering...

Now it's time for a matt cote to preserve the artistic oils. Later I'll get a satin cote over rivets&panels to give a good contrast....
