      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".

1/72 Eduard Mig-15 Czech Thunderjet Killer

Hi there, another one from the Christmas WIP now ready for its RFI. 

Basically this is a weekend edition, no etch but superfabric belts, however using the markings from the limited edition dual combo kit no. 2113. Only addition was some e-z line for aerial. 

 

Progress in this thread here: 

 

In short this build used AK interactive products all over, from extreme metals for the NMF, and air series for some of the Russian shades. Detail colours came from the basics set. 

Decals sealed with gauzy and then a satin final coat after the weathering which was Ak panel liners - the brown one. Also their 'scratches effect' fluid used for the wing walkways. 

 

Enjoy!

I didn`t know that the Czech AF had downed a Sabre using a MiG 15,.......I`ve only heard of this incident;

 

10 March 1953 Two US Air Force F-84G Thunderjets of the 36 TFW, based in West Germany, crossed into Czechoslovakian airspace. They were intercepted by Czech MiG-15 Fagots and one F-84G was shot down by Jaroslav Sramek. The pilot ejected and survived.

 

Is this the incident in question? If so.....I`m gld that the F-84G pilot survived.

Cheers
