      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".

Ju-87B Airfix Versus Hasegawa Ju-87B ?

6 posts in this topic

Before the release of the new Airfix 1/48 Stuka JU-87B  I would like to ask if are there some differences between the new Airfix kit versus the Hasegawa one ? which is more detailed or right in dimensions ? Does can we expect for the D/G versions ?

Thanks

Tonka

There is no reason to believe they will do D/G versions. They have done early versions six times, in 1/72, 1/48 and 1/24, and never done a D/G

The old Airfix kit in 1/48 wasn't a bad kit, had some lumps and bumps as a real Ju87, and easy to make for some reason.

I have the Has/Rev kit of the Ju 87 in the stash, looking forward to seeing it on the bench, as even 20 years old, still good tool.

Yes, if you need one, then new Airfix is the way to go, just don't throw the old ones away.😊

I'd second that (old airfix kit).  The "horseshoes" for the rear stab struts are moulded the wrong way round the the instructions would have you put the italian wing markings upside down but still fun!

I made the old Airfix Ju 87, as a throw away model, practice some ideas, we all do it.

But the truth was, it's not bad, and ended up a good kit, as said, easy as well.
