      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".

This is the Wingnut Wings Bristol Fighter, what more can I say, beautiful kit in every way, challenging yes, but for all the right reasons. Built with no major mods other than some additional wiring and rigged in monofilament with the essential "Bobs Buckles" eyelets.

This formed a welcome distraction from 1/400 aircraft carriers at the time !!

WOW! That is absolutely breathtaking! Truly inspiring (as in, I really need to dig mine out and actually build it....)

Well done that man!

A thing of beauty indeed. 

 

I'm sorely tempted to get a Wingnut kit.

WOW ! I just love every single wingnut wing kits posted here and this is perhaps the best I have seen , due in parts to the open engine .  I am curious about the marking though - why did the Maharaja present the Raj with this airplane ? 

Regards ,

A cliché I know, but with a different background that could be mistaken for the real thing! Stunning in every way.

Superbly realistic build of one of the ugliest biplanes I can remember having set eyes on. ;-)

 

Thoroughly impressive modelling!

 

Kind regards,

You've clearly not trawled through the aviafrance site, then! ;). Now, some of them are ugly!

Good try Dave.

That's not a model,it's the real thing photoshopped on to the background.

 

Seriously though..what a beauty!

I know that WNW kits are good, but you have turned yours into a mini-masterpiece. Excellent in every department.

Outrageous!  Trying to pass the real thing off as a model. 

Seriously, congratulations on creating a masterpiece.
