      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".

Caudron G.4 Copper State Models 1/48

32 posts in this topic

So my great adventure with the best kit I`ve built so far is over. I think Edgar and the whole CSM team has done a great job.
My model depicts the G.4 used for artillery spotting in C.74 Franco/Belgian unit. Several modifications have been made such as Chauviere propellers, Colt machine gun, different gun mount. The superb quality decals with cowling numbers and different serial were painted by Melius Manu. As far as I know all these will be available at CSM soon. The colt gun is greatly detailed with a small PE.
The whole building process can be seen in under construction thread:

That is absolutely amazing, one of the best pieces of work I've seen here.  That airplane looks like the term "taildragger" applies literally.

That's a jaw dropper if I ever saw one. Just the rigging is just unbelievable!

 

When I saw the overview pics, I thought – this must have taken a lot of patience. But the I saw the close-ups of turnbuckles and the other fittings and realised that the rigging is firmly in the masochist domain. The I felt a great relief that I'm not into pre-1920:s aviation…

 

Huge respect!

 

Kind regards,

 

Joachim
