      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".

Thank you Bill.

I wonder if that Revell phantom was the one my parents got for me when I was a nipper - back in the 80's. All I can remember is that it had a removable engine and the canopies had little clear hinges on them to allow you to pose them up or down but they broke off even before I got a chance to build the darn thing. It was probably the last model I made until I took modelling up again a couple of years ago - I did try to do a quick search for it just before this build began for nostalgic reasons... however come to think of it then maybe yes, it was better left back in the 80's ^_^

Methinks that's the beastie! I've posted pictures of my finished model from 26 years ago here.

Hopefully it doesn't bring back any nightmares!!

Superb work... that's just about all I can say here.....

This really makes me want to dig out my Tammy Rhino and start gluing everything together (Steady Now!).

Thanks very much for sharing with us.
