      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".

How hard would it be for Airfix (or any one ells for what it matter) to make an F-86D with this kit? Just an new nose and fuselage halves?
Are those wings usefull for an F-86D or does Airfix have to make an completely new kit?

They would only have to put a new fuselage, wings, tail planes, canopy etc.

There was only a 25% cominalty of parts between the F and the D. It suffered from the same problem as the F-84E and F. The USAF decided to limit cash for new aircraft so manufactures came up with the idea of making a new model of an existing aircraft even though when in effect it was a new aircraft.

 

In fact in terms of the F-86D ut was really an F-95.

Add F9F- Panther/Cougar to the list.   I think it was the US Government rather than USAF who made the limitations
