      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".

Is this true? No "modern" injection kit of a single seater Venom available?

Fascinating how my daughters review has lots of my photo's my manuals and my flipping aeroplane, perhaps its time she was banned from the shed <_<

Watch it! 

That is a totally unfounded slur on my good character!

I asked in a load clear voice several times could I raid the library and you never said no.

 

 

Not my fault you weren't home :D

OH NO!  A "family domestic disagreement " on Britmodeller!

 

Another first for the site?

They were issued in the late 80's and haven't been in production since about 1995.

Were they any good?

Perhaps there's a niche market out there to roll this one out of the Aeroclub production lines once again??

If so - 1 x F.1 plus 1 x FB.4 for me please.

 

Cheers .. Dave

Accurate but basic.  Typical 1980s limited run.  The white metal was beautiful.

 

John may still have the moulds but I'd suspect that they'd be shot now.

Iirc the Rareplanes vacform FB4 was a very good kit. Yes I know it's a vac ...

 

I have this one somewhere in the stash as well.

 

How about I move it to the top of the to do list?,m an injected Airfix is bound to follow.  :-)

 

Cheers,

You're aircraft is a disgrace sailor.....

Last RAN Sea Venom in its original paint

The most complete RAN Sea Venom remaining

Only RAN Sea Venom with the original avionics fit

and one of only 2 RAN Sea Venom's in the world that you can walk up to and flash up the hydraulics and electrics.

Yep I should be ashamed of myself.

The answer is still NO!

Your post is about the Rareplanes kit rather than the Aeroclub kit but nonetheless, what are you waiting for?  Crack on!!

The Rareplanes one was nice (iirc Gordon Stevens made the fuselage master from a bit of old bannister rail) but the Venom is now the gaping gap in the post war RAF fighters range. Every other RAF jet fighter has had an injection kit in the last 30 years. As much as I love the Swift, I never thought I'd see a mainstream and limited run kit of that before a Venom.

 

pS and a Vampire Night fighter too......
