      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".

Very reasonable ! I wonder why the Tigers and Pz.IV are more expensive ?

I hope they still pack it with details and its not another model/toy like their 1/16 MRAPS .

Not wanting to rain on anyone's parade, but I would be VERY surprised if the T-72 is that cheap. Are Veteranus guestimating a price there?

 

Just saying, folks.... No disrespect intended on my part.

Ah that  would make sense but its a shame a full on T-72 like the same quality as their PZIV or King  Tiger series would have been awesome .

Ah thanks Andy , looks quite nice actually .

It does look good. I'd have preferred an T-72A as it would have been easier to make a NVA T-72M or M1, not looking forward to having to remove all that radiation cladding! Maybe the aftermarket will come to my aid?

Yeah , I'd like to do one with kontact reactive armour so I'll be ok with the Anti radiation . For any other I think as you say it'll be either AM or out with the trusty motor tool .

The kit looks great in the photos, but what's up with those track links? Please tell me Trumpy haven't moulded every single track-link individually. It'll take a week of solid work just to remove them from the sprue-trees and - oh lordy - all that sanding...! "Link-and-length" style tracks sound a bit more likely, but I will want to have a very close look in the box before buying this one.....

 

Cheers for sharing.

Yeah ! I hear you mate ,  Its that way in the later boxing's of their Tiger II and PZ.IV though . So it looks more likely they'll be indies !
