    CO2 airbrushing dangers

    It's not the CO2 you need to worry about, it's the atomised paint particles getting into your lungs which cause the problems - that's why you should always wear a proper mask when airbrushing (and a helpful hint: if you can smell paint through your mask whilst airbrushing, your mask isn't stopping the paint particles).

    Big Aviation icon Paul Allen has passed

    He'd previously stated that most of his fortune would go to charity after he passed.

    Wingnut Wings Photo - Clues?

    I'm sure that each kit WNW sells makes them some profit, but it's not the main driver behind the decision on which kits they produce - they make what PJ wants them to make. If all PJ wanted was to make massive profits, we'd have a WNW Dr.I, SPAD XIII, 109, Mustang, Spitfire...

    The next WNW kit..? 3 wishes...

    You know you don't have to read these threads, right?

    I have a feeling that the Lancs will be an anomoly, with subsequent kits very much remaining in WWI (or shortly thereafter).

    WNW doesn't really operate as a comercial business, though. It's the hobby of a very rich man. I suspect that profit margins come quite a way down the list of considerations when choosing subjects.

    Guess: 1. Breguet 14 2. Albatros C.III 3. Sopwith 1 1/2 Strutter Wish: 1. Ansaldo SVA.5 2. Vickers Gunbus 3. Hanriot HD.I

    I think the kit on top of the Salmson box is another Halberstadt Cl.II.

    That'll buff out.

    WINGNUT WINGS LANCASTER!!!!!!!!!

    It’s not a SPAD, it’s (I think) the WNW LVG on top of their Salmson. What is interesting, though, is the collection of books on the desk - Italian Aces of WWI, French Aircraft of the First World War and the Windsock Datafile for the Breguet 14...

    I'd be surprised if the WNW Lanc sells for less than £500, given the size and complexity of the model.

    You could read my articles on The Huffington Post: https://www.huffingtonpost.co.uk/author/vince-warrington/ Or maybe this one on how cyber criminals are getting past multi-factor authentication by exploiting weaknesses in cell phone companies: https://www.itproportal.com/features/mobile-operators-must-take-more-responsibility-over-our-phone-security/ Or this one, where I demonstrate how a multi-million dollar Top Secret US Navy programme was hakced by the Chinese: https://www.defenceonline.co.uk/tag/vince-warrington/ Or you could just go to https://www.protectiveintelligence.co.uk/ And I'm not assuming to know how secure you think you are, I know that's the case. Everyone I've worked with - be they politicians, bankers, intelligence agencies, celebrities or us regular Joes - is less secure than they think they are.

    And I run a successful cyber security business that works with the world's financial regulators to better prepare the global economic system against cyber attacks. Writing passwords down isn't going to protect you because - guess what - you still have to enter them into various websites where they can be stolen. Oh, and freely available tools like HashCat can crack passwords up to 256 characters in length. And you might not fall for the obvious 'Nigerian 419' emails, but I promise you that a well-crafted spear phishing email will almost certainly fool you. Trust me, you are not as secure as you think you are.

    A quick phishing email would probably land me both your banking username and password. And, unless you're using a password manager, your password is much less secure than you think it is.

    They don't get caught because cyber crime is extremely difficult to prove - and even if you do know who's commited the crime, they're usually in a completely different country. Evgeniy Bogachev, for example, is wanted by the FBI for involvement with the Carbanak group who stole billions of dollars from Western banks. They know exactly where he lives, and have offered $3m for information leading to his arrest, but he's untouchable as long as he stays in Russia.
