      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".

DML Panzerbefehlswagen III J

This will ultimately be a Regimental command tank of Pz Rgt 8 in Tunisia. 

 

Sandbags are "Green Stuff" putty which I used for the first time. I like the results. Track link armor is from my spares box. I formed these on the kit using plastic sandwich wrap to prevent sticking. They will be painted separately, then mounted permanently.

I also scratch built a stowage box from sheet plastic. It will be mounted on the engine deck similar to earlier command tanks.

You're doing a great job G . Coming along very nicely .

Duro or "Green stuff " isn't easy to work with but you look like you've been using it for years .

The sand bags have a great realistic sag to them .

Great job Sir !
