  1. Things going goofy after recent update

    I forgot to mention - Edge is fine - Explorer is wonky! To be honest, never really had any problems with IE until now!
  2. Hannants?

    I have problems using the inbuilt browser on my galaxy tab - using google chrome everything seems ok. You may need to download the chrome browser instead.
  3. Things going goofy after recent update

    Admins - have we got a solution yet to the "stretched" forums view on the britmodeller skin, rather than having to use the default blue skin where the forum view works properly? This is how each forum looks with the britmodeller skin : And this is what it looks like with the default blue skin: This has been happening since the upgrade. Sorry for being a PITA. Sadly none of the suggested fixes work apart from switching to the default forum software theme. Thanks
  4. My BM has gone wonky

    Using the BM Theme instead of the default blue theme I also have the "wide screen" issue with the topic on the left hand side of the forum with the poster details on the far extreme right. This goes away and is okay if I swap to the default theme.
  5. Possible Photobucket Scam email!

    Not a scam. They are switching off free 3rd party hosting and charging for this service. This is the notice that the admins have posted at the top of BM. Photobucket are now charging $399 per annum for the privilege of being able to have the ability to post pictures on photobucket and then use them to host the picture and link to it from a third party site, such as what happens here on BM. I received a couple of the emails as I was in the process of closing my account because of the change in their terms. Sadly, they did this without any prior notice (or very much prior notice) and have caused a lot of issues for forums such as BM. There was even a report on the BBC website about this and the loss of information going back quite a few years in some cases. http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/technology-40492668 Here's the link
  6. Any models shops in Wales...?

    Was in Brecon about a month ago - definitely nothing there.
  7. Does anyone know or has anyone noticed recently (within the last few days) why when watching between devices, we are being logged out. So for example, I use BM on my phone, PC, tablet, Linux PC, and laptop (depending on where I am, and what I am doing). In the last few says, I have noticed that when logging into my phone, I will be logged out of all other instances of BM. So has anyone else noticed, or anyone any idea what s going on? thanks john
  8. Airbrush tips need please

    I use two types of syringe depending on the quantity being mixed. I have larger 5ml syringes for making up large amounts for when I know I will be using a lot of the same colour in one go. I also have some 1ml for smaller amounts. I find these are more accurate than using pippettes.
  9. HELP - My primer is peeling off...

    Ideally you need to leave it 12 to 24 hours to cure properly. Whilst it says that it is dry in 30 to 60 minutes, it has not cured properly so this may be why it is lifting after masking. I have recently finished an Airfix Shackleton using Vallejo primers. Having researched the problems other have had with this, and also needing to thin it a bit before airbrushing, I left it almost 24 hours before spraying the next coat. And then another 24 hours before the first coat of paint. By doing this I did not have any issues with the primer lifting. The paint I used on top of the primer was Tamiya acrylics thinned with their own thinner. The Vallejo was thinned with Ultimate thinners at a ratio of 25% thinner 75% primer. I used Tamiya masking tape throughout, and didn't have any paint or primer lifting at all at any stage (and believe me it's a substantial kit even at 1/72). I sprayed 2 thin coats of white primer, 3 thin coats of gloss white paint, (masked) and then 2 coats of XF24 to act as dark sea grey. with about 12-24 hours between each coat. When the masking was removed, no paint lifted. Hope this helps.

    My apologies - I misread the date on the issue - think I need new glasses - I am slightly myopic.... (shortsighted)
  11. June 2017 SAM

    Most monthly magazines are printed for the month ahead - so we are talking about the issue published end of April 2017/beginning May 2017 and dated for June 2017 - to be exact Volume 39, issue 03. There is no irony in the title of the thread - the op is quite correct in the title - we are indeed talking about the June issue.
  12. June 2017 SAM

    That's exactly what I think has happened.

    Sadly not a rogue copy. Just picked my copy up and has the same problem. Bought mine from the branch of WH Smight in Bletchley this afternoon.
  14. Different phones

    you may need an 'adsl' filter which plugs in between the socket and the phone. This allows the phone/socket to filter the differences between the phone signal and an adsl (broadband) signal. do you plug your broadband directly into your phone socket or another device first?
  15. Visit 15-04-2017

    There is but one Wonderland models sub forum on this forum - I posted my comment in the correct area - therefore I can only be making my comments about the physical store and location in Edinburgh about Wonderland Models. I cannot magically make another sub-forum up out of thin air. All the devices I have to access this forum - phone, tablet, PC, laptop clearly show that this is the correct area. No other topic within this area mentions Wonderland models by name, they don't reference Wonderland by name because they are all in the Wonderland models sub forum! I personally do not see any reason to amend the subject title - It was a visit on 15-014-17 - and it is in the correct area of the forum to which it relates.
