      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".

This would be really useful, due the diverse range of builds going on. I have lots of pics of a T17 cockpit and some other stuff from the two a/c at Hendon and MAM (mainly undercarriage and tailplanes).

Plus I'm sure Bex has enough info to keep us all going for years. :analintruder:

Ive edited the title of this thread to save moving or merging posts etc, so, this is now the official GB Reference Thread (Hope ya dont mind Rich) So, any reference material you have or know about put a post in here.

Heres a couple of mine on top of Tims list:

B2 Tech Manual Scans

PR7 Tech Manual Scans

MB Mk2 Ejector Seat

Indian AF Canberra Photos

Project Robin

AirBritain Canberra Photo Search

That should keep us going for a bit.

if anyone (else) is considering doing Llanbedr's TT18, with the Stilletto drone, ive found some useful stuff..

http://www.rocketryonline.com/jimball/jimb...m-37/aqm-37.htm

the AQM-37 is the US designation for the Stilletto!

Steve,

Thanks for that, it's a good AQM-37 reference. Here's another useful AQM-37 site that I used when scratchbuilding mine. The Stiletto is a Shorts modified version of the AQM-37A.

HTH,

Ian

I haven't joined the GB but being a big Canberra fan I think this is a brilliant thread.

Ladies and gents,

For reasons that will become obvious in the next little while, I'm looking for pictures and/or drawings of the nose area of the T.17 variant. In particular, I'd like to see the underside of the nose immediately aft of the 'radome' and further aft to the nosewheel bay. I know that there are two 'strakes' (for want of a better term, perhaps their cable ducts.....) of differing length which run either side of the nosewheel bay but my slim selection of reference material and photos don't show their origin in the ventral nose fairing. In fact, given my lack of detailed information, I'd be grateful for anything which clarifies the peculiarities of this version, such as the intakes (?) on the underside of the wings and the exhausts on the lower fuselage.....

I look forward to hearing from anyone who can help out.

Thanks in advance,

Andrew.

Looking at Speedys nose photo and mine, you quite easily see how on the real thing instruments & doo dahs are fitted.

Andrew,

Bear with me, but could you PM me an email address please, and I can put you intouch with someone who is restoring a T17 in 1:1 scale.

If anyone is building an airfix B2, please note the HEIGHT adjustment lever on the ejector seat is on the wrong side, its molded on the Port side when in reality its on the Starboard side.

Or better still replace with aftermarket, although there is not a suitable MK2C about at the moment :whistle: .

The kit ones bear very little resemblance to the real thing.
