      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".

FS colour matching

4 posts in this topic

Hello folks, 

Does anyone know what the tamiya equivalents of FS36320, FS36118, FS36270 and FS36375.


Any help with this would be greatly appreciated.

XF-24 (Sea Grey) would probably be reasonable for 36118 and XF-83 (Medium Sea Grey) for 36270, but I don't think there's anything close to the Compass grays in the rest of the range.  There are Tamiya mixes for various colours at mixing/MixTamiya.pdf.

I agree with Joseph's view, those two colours may be sorted but the Compass Greys can't be found in the Tamiya catalogue. To be brutally honest, very few FS tints are IMHO really available from Tamiya. If you can find them, I'd switch to the Gunze line of paints, they are very similar to the Tamiya paints but have a wider catalogue with a large number of FS (and some BS) matched paints. The quality of these paints is actually better than Tamiya's
