      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".

superbly executed model, don't see this type very often.

Always wondered why it has been so forgotten, as it was one the first jets, Airfix 1/24 kit would be nice and expected, considering its Historical importance, if WW2 had gone onto 46, would have helped win 🏆 the war, and first jet to land on carrier, I know my text is on about the vampire, but very closely related.😊

That's a really well executed model, the assembly and finishing are top class. It is a difficult kit to get right, ask me how I know, and you have!

Love it - looks top notch. Great to see a Venom - seldom enough.

 

Which colors did you use?

Now that's just beautiful. Very well modelled and displayed. The Suez stripes certainly lift it just enough to stand out from the crowd. 

 

Adding to the previous comments - why hasn't a well known manufacturer picked this subject as one of its new tools as yet? Even the  non-mainstream market seem to have dodged this aircraft. 

 

To quote a famous movie - "Build it and they will come".. 

 

Cheers.. Dave

I really like that. Great building, painting and photography. I can't believe how clear that canopy looks either, looks like it really is glass.

That looks really good.  A thoroughly clean build.  I like the soft but not too soft demarcation between the green and gray in the upper surface camouflage,

Very well executed with a good attention to details.

 

Any reason why you used a vacu canopy ?

Typical reason:

Kit glass isn't satisfactory transparent, it is thick and ejection seat doesn't fit in close position

Beautiful build,

40's/50's aircraft are just so much prettier than their modern counterparts.

That's a cracking Venom!! I reckon masking those stripes must have been fun....:nah:  Very neat and tidy paintwork! Wouldn't it be nice if Airfix did one of these in 48th? We can dream!
