      DDoS and Brute Force Attacks   09/18/2016

      Since the 15th Sept until until yesterday afternoon (19th), we have been under a concerted attack by a person or persons using a number of 'bots and other people's Proxy networks to carry out what is called a Distributed Denial of Service attack, which is a method by which these 'bots submit thousands of requests to the website per second to overload the server and bring the site to its knees.  While this was going on, they were also making Brute Force attacks on our remote communications port to try and breach the server so they could do anything from format the hard drives to change ownership of the site, and bombarding the mailserver with similar bogus requests, some of which left some rather telling details behind.   We fought this with the tools available to us, and have gathering a substantial amount of evidence against the attackers, who persisted with their attack for almost 5 days regardless of the consequences to themselves.  This was a terrible mistake on their part.  On the advice of our Lawyer and fellow member JohnT, we yesterday informed the National Crime Agency and requested their assistance with the matter, and in an ongoing dialogue with them to find the culprits, so we are allowing them access to the server and its logs.  Hackers are seldom able to completely mask their real identity and location, and we have some very competent people working on it on our behalf, which is already reaping the rewards.   We don't believe that this is a random attack on balance, but for 5 days we had to put up with some disturbance and interruption to the usually fast response of the website as we are seeing now that the attack has ended.  We will prevail, and don't worry about it.  We were the target, and these people will not win.  Karma will catch up with them   Mike, Greg, Dave & Julien.

Airbrushing with a Scuba Tank

6 posts in this topic

Hi there,

As well getting back into modelling, I'm a qualified Scuba Diver.

While looking into what's involved with Airbrushes, the thought occured to me that I have my own air source, a 232Ltr Cylinder. I can get air fills for €7 nearby.

So, is airbrushing with a scuba tank possible at all? I'm guessing I'd need a first stage regulator ( which I have ) and a hose, along with some way of regulating the pressure etc., and a connector to connect it to an airbrush? Is all this possible / advisable?

Thanks...

J.

Thanks for your reply!

I realise that it might not be the best way of doing it, but considering I already have a tank, access to refills, and a first stage regulator, it might be the easiest way for me to get into airbrushing?

It will work just fine.

Just one think to keep in mind though, most airbrushes & hoses are not rated for much past 50/60psi - so be careful dialing or get a pressure limiter / overpressure valve.

As long as you get a regulator,I used a CO2 tank for many years with no problems.

Unfortunately the gentleman that keep my tank filled for free moved jobs and CO2 was proving expensive.

You can spray anything as long as you get the pressure and nozzle is suitable for the media.

i remember Verlinden once saying the airbrush he used which i believe was marketed by Xacto in the states and Humbrol

in the UK was that smooth he was sure it would spray sand.
