      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".

Soviet GAZ M-1 'Emka' colours anyone?

3 posts in this topic

Dear Colleagues


I recently got hold of the new Zvezda 1/35 GAZ M-1 staff car.  Does anyone know or have any evidence if any of them were ever painted camouflage green?  I believe the standard cars were usually black.  As they were taken up by officers and driven to the front might some of them been given a green camo job?  Looking at wartime photos I really cannot tell.


Thanks for any advice

The 2 wheel drive version was black the 4 wheel drive version of that car, not the Emka per say, but basically the same vehicle, could be either 4BO, or black IIRC. A GOOGLE search will turn up some good information

Check out a website called "Engines of the Red Army".


Can't link to it off my phone but a Google search of the above will find it.


There's lots of soft skin colour profiles and photos on there.
