      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.

  1. Interesting scoop comparison. Good luck with the casting! What's the moving thing in the inlet for? An early attempt at changing inlet area in the transsonic region?
  2. Well, I think I can join with something that was based at Flygflottilj 10, or F10 as it's normally called here in Swedish Air Force. So it'll probably be a J8 Gloster Gladiator or a J22 or a J35 Draken...
  3. D'oh! I misread your opening paragraph! Ok, so it's the Airfix kit. Well, that's a good kit in itself, so no worries there
  4. Here's another vote for #28 It just looks cool
  5. You don't se the Brengun kit that often, but from what you show it looks like a good kit. Great paintjob som far!
  6. Main construction done already? That's speedy work!
  7. It's time to bid farewell to the wheel wells for now: Quite please with how that turned out. Flipping the wings over, the situation is quite different. Sand and fill a few times more I think! Atleast it builds character... I also did the main landing gear and had high hopes to run some brake hoses there to add interest. It turns out the the brake hoses are tiny and hardly shows up in 1:1. I had to replace one strut with evergreen stock though since the Eduard parts were 0,5mm too short. Some fine tolerancing at work here! Next up, cockpit and its myriad of tiny tiny plastic parts. So far, the front cockpit contains 16 plastic parts! IMG_20170713_175356 by Christer Andersson, on Flickr This part will be fun!
  8. A great idea, and so far it looks very promising!
  9. Don't scare Rui too much Max. Eduards kit might be a challenge, but it's not impossible! Just think Czech short run instead of Tamiya Yes Tony, there will be decals for sharkmouths. After all, I do ha a thing for them: But a Roden early He-111? That's crazy work!
  10. Gaps, and ill fitting parts. I feel right at home with this!
  11. Look, a Tempest And a conversion to MkII no less. Excellent! IIRC from alla digging that I did for my Tiffy it seems that Grey green was going out of style, and black with painted aluminium skin was the way to go there. I'd say that black tubing is the way to go, but the skin is either black or aluminium.
  12. Thanks guys! I'm at work so no filler can be used right now, but I had a hunch that it moved inside tha nacelle somehow.
  13. Thanks Chris! Come on now, it's an Eduard Kit, not a Mach2... Let's see what yesterday brought. Wheel wells were painted ant slightly weathered. So far so good! Time to marry the nacelles to the wings, which is the first troublesome area. On top of the wings, there are a few small small pads that the nacell must land on top of. I also noticed that the engine fairing on top of the wing is a lot shorter than what I remember from my Airfix Bf110C (new tool) that I almost completed a few years back. (one of these days I might get back to it, but not now. Oh? I have a WIP for it? Link, but with dead pictures ) Let's do a dryfit of the nacell then and see how bad it is. Yep, there's a step there. Brute force to the rescue! These clamps are a good thing! I run a bead of Tamiya extra thin in the joint between wing and nacelle and let the underside unglued. That will be done in the next step. Atleast I hope that's a good idea. Another thing to look out for is off course the rear of the engine fairing towards the flap. I'm gusees that there shoud be both a step and a gap here, since tha flap moves, but not the nacelle... Time to look at pictures of the real thing, otherwise I'll break out the filler!
  14. What can I say? The sharkmouth was the reason for me to buy the kit in the first place... If it fails spectaculary, I'll go for another option! But yes , I probably am a glutton for punishment ButI did manage to put one on an Airfix 1/24 Tiffy...
