      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".

Superb, belongs in a museum collection! I'd love to be able to create something like this, very very fine work here

A beautiful, beautiful model.  The engine detail is just brilliant, as is the wood affect on the prop.   And you're restoring a Jensen 541?  Looks like it's in good hands and I'm not even remotely jealous!

Thank you all very much, you are too kind...but I think most of the credit really has to go to those people at WnW, with the quality of their offerings the biggest problem is trying to do the kit justice !

As for the funny old car Meatbox8, it is a long term labour of love (long term being an understatement- 16 years and counting) but Im onto the interior now so it shouldnt be too long, mind you Ive been telling myself that for the past 15 years:D

Wow.  What a beauty.  Looks like it's coming along fine, even if it is taking decades!  You can see the lineage that led to the Jensen Interceptor which, in my humble opinion, is the coolest looking car ever built.

Rob, they are exquisite in every way, the fit is so good that you could probably build them as snap together kits :smile:, (seriously though that can be a bit of a hassle as the tolerances are so tight that sometimes a coat of paint is enough to cause problems), plus the instruction booklets are a work of art in their own right, .......take the plunge, the Brisfit was the first biplane I have built since I was 11, and I had a blast with it (though I did ocasionally wish I had picked a slightly simpler one) !!!

stunning.  It looks like it would start up if you spun the propeller.  Nice job

Ha ha.  Fair enough.  My dad used to have a Jensen Healey as it happens.  He gave it to my brother who then (sacrilege) traded it in for a Citroen SM.

That's gorgeous, someone commented earlier that all these kits are beautiful and I have to agree, this example being particularly so! 

 

I've been tempted to try a WnW kit but I've got cableaphobia (fear of rigging)!

 

Stunning work,

That is spectacular, as already said also looks extremely like a real aircraft.  I'd love to see it against a real world backdrop

I recon you could start this up and go flying! It really is something of a masterpiece. The high points for me are the engine and rigging. Got any more like that?
