      PhotoBucket are no longer permitting 3rd party hosting   01/07/17

      As most of you are now painfully aware, Photobucket (PB) are stopping/have stopped allowing their members to link their accumulated years of photos into forums and the like, which they call 3rd party linking.  You can give them a non-refundable $399 a year to allow links, but I doubt that many will be rushing to take them up on that offer.  If you've previously paid them for the Pro account, it looks like you've got until your renewal to find another place to host your files, but you too will be subject to this ban unless you fork over a lot of cash.   PB seem to be making a concerted move to another type of customer, having been the butt of much displeasure over the years of a constantly worsening user interface, sloth and advertising pop-ups, with the result that they clearly don't give a hoot about the free members anymore.  If you don't have web space included in your internet package, you need to start looking for another photo host, but choose carefully, as some may follow suit and ditch their "free" members at some point.  The lesson there is keep local backups on your hard drive of everything you upload, so you can walk away if the same thing happens.   There's a thread on the subject here, so please use that to curse them, look for solutions or generall grouse about their mental capacity.   Not a nice situation for the forum users that hosted all their photos there, and there will now be a host of useless threads that relied heavily on photos from PB, but as there's not much we can do other than petition for a more equitable solution, I suggest we make the best of what we have and move on.  One thing is for certain.  It won't win them any friends, but they may not care at this point.    Mike.

  12. Me? Double entendres ? Never . But Ginger nuts are real things, and dunking them is real too. They're very hard, but very, very tasty . Sausage rolls are real things too. I believe the USA recently has had them launched under a different name . Hot ones, with good seasoning in the, preferably 'quite soft with crispy edges' suasage filling, lovely choux pastry and accompanied by, as an esteemed fellow Britmodeller suggests, Branston pickle (chunky, not the daft fine cut stuff), are a delight. Now I start to think of it, quite a few British foodstuffs have the potential for double entendres. Ginger Nuts, Hob Nobs, Sausage Rolls, Faggots in Gravy, Black Pudding, Battered Savaloy, the list really does go on. Even the innocent Goblin Meat Pudding starts to sound suspect.... 'Toad in the Hole'; it's a foodstuff, really. As is 'Spotted Dick'. It's great being British ! Best regards TonyT
  13. Thanks for the warm welcome folks. I'm looking forward to (hopefully) becoming an active member.
  14. Well back to regular schedule programing Have been doing a bit here and there on the Typhoon changed the ammo boxes, first ones I glued with CA and they keep falling apart so I had another set and this time I soldered, these came out way better. Then glued the wings together. [/URL] [/URL] Then painted the shells [/URL] [/URL] [/URL] Then started to put some detail into the engine area because I will be showing it with the engine being hoisted from the frame. [/URL] [/URL] [/URL] Then I drilled out the pipes on the radiator [/URL] [/URL] Until next time, Regards Richard
  15. All that work on the scratching of detail will really stand out on the finished piece Steve. That's looking really smart now. Tony
  16. @Ripaman Thanks for the support. Trust you had a good time with the relatives and they weren't sent home in disgrace. Cheers Julian sitting on the fence and taking in what people are saying. Heard last night at the club that Flicker are part of BT / Yahoo, would perhaps indicate that they might have some longevity / morals. Without signing up I can't find if it costs. I don't use BT as a provider. All thoughts are welcome Kev
  17. Thank you, Frieze Green - or, as he stepped out of an icebox, Deep Frieze Green!
  18. I fear that you're afflicted with the dreaded planned obsolescence, Steve. I'm sure the gear you've got works perfectly well, but the wonderful burglars computer companies have stopped supporting your systems, so they're gradually falling over. You're probably best upgrading your stuff, and resigning yourself to the fact that in far too few years you'll have to go through the same nausea again ...
  19. Somehow the mythical origin of the Roc in proximity to the Bermuda Triangle gives your work here an air of glamour and mystery Martian. Have you regaled us yet with what the actual winch bit for target towing looks like? Tony
  20. If you have diffculty making ratlines on miniatures, just leave them off! I have built smaller ones at 50 feet to 1 inch without ratlines, and no-one has ever commented or even seemed to notice! Bob
  21. Been awhile since I last posted had family over from England for two weeks showed the all the nice parts around here, one is where you take a drive between Banff and Lake Louise on the Bow Valley Parkway and most times you will see wild life of some sort, well in all the years living here I have not seen a Grizzly in the wild only in the Zoo, but this time we saw two in the space of 10 mins, and one of them was big. [/URL] [/URL] [/URL] [/URL] [/URL] Hope you enjoy this lovely animal. Regards Richard
  22. Harm can come to a young lad like that.
  23. No, my Captain, I'm just an East Finchley Boy Scout, and ready for the fight - see, my sword is in my hand (Clank!) Ooooh! The end's fallen off!
  24. I've come to this late, but am glad that I'm here now Cliff

  26. RVB, Bienvenue à Britmodeller. I found out about your publications through a fellow Britmodeller, a Frenchman called Patrice (goes by the name of TempestMk5 on here), he put us on to the excellent Mirage F1 book you published, thanks for publishing that, can we have one the same on the Mirage III/5? Since discovering there was a regular magazine I've been keeping an eye out for them whilst I was in France recently, I'm still working my way through No.8, finding the articles on the Super Etendard and the Corsair interesting. More of the same please! Your publications are certainly helping my French translation skills. Wez
