      DDoS and Brute Force Attacks   09/18/2016

      From the day following upgrade to the new forum software, 15th Sept until the 19th, we were 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.  This was followed up a couple of days later with a further attack that left more data to sift through, which we have passed on to our IT forensics people.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.    We don't believe that this is a random attack on balance, but for 5 days and a further evening 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.

Lots have been printed. You might try Hannants ? Scour through thier 1/48 P-51 sets, you might find one by anyone of the many decal producesr. Barracuda comes to mind. Good Luck.

ps You might also want to ask here in the Wanted column or look at 'the Bank' for decals you never know!

I'm going to be building 'Glamourus Glen' (misspelt on the aircraft) for the P-51 STGB. I'm using Tally Ho decals I got from hannants. Which of Chuck Yeager's P-51s are you planning to build?

The one I'm building is his first mount, a P-51B.

Dave, drop me an email (jrh at pemtel dot net). I'm pretty sure I've got some of the ancient Aeromaster decals decals I did. It was like Aeromaster sheet 48-005 or something from almost 20 years ago (!!!!!).

If you can get the Tamiya 1/72nd issue for the '8th Air Force' issue with Big Beautiful Doll on the box top, then you'll find Glamorous Glen on the decal sheet too with Old Crow as well!!

I'm pretty sure Repli-Scale did a 1/48 set for Glamorous Glen and Old Crow some years ago, not sure about other scales.

Repli-Scale #48-5059 has "Old Crow" and 48-5058 has "Glamorous Glen III".

These decal sheet were part of a series on 'The Yoxford Boys'

In 1/72 scale "Glamorous Glen III". is on Repli-Scale #72-1058 - I also have this one for sale.

I believe there were six sheets in the1/48 series.

I have #2 through #6 for sale if anyone is interested.

If you are looking for decals of any airplane you will get it from Peddinghaus in Germany. http://www.peddinghaus-decals.de/

If you send them a foto or a profile by mail, they will make decals whatever you want. The costs of this decals are about 10 € in 1/72 and 1/48 and about 15 € in 1/32.

Very impressive! Luftwaffe buffs in particular should scroll through the aircraft pages for your favourite scale. Lots of 109's, 190's, 262's, and so on in the 6 pages of 1/72 aircraft that I took a quick look at. Thanks for the link!
