      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".

Hi all

Hello everyone,


been lurking on the forums for the last few weeks and decided to join up.


My name is chris and I'm from hull, I used to build models as a child through to my early teens, mainly WW2 aircraft.


I have recently returned to the hobby after stumbeling upon a Facebook page showing some amazing works and it just sparked the bug off again for me.


I have to say, a lot has changed since I last tinkered, but after reading some of the tips and tricks here on the forums and the power of YouTube videos it's really opened my eyes to a lot of things.


This time around I seem to have a real craving for ww2 armour ... and I have picked up the Sherman "Fury" 1:35 as my first kit in years! It's been a fun build this far and it's allowed me to get my tools back together and new paints and weathering pigments.  I've just about got the kit ready for the primer stage, I just need to go and grab an airbrush as my old one no longer works (many years of been boxed up and dropped).


Anyway I hope I can learn some more from you guys and become an active part of the community here.
