      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. Lovely save on that Centurion! Star Decals do a couple of sets for th Centurion. You can get them from Hannants.
  2. Thanks everybody, I'm glad you all like the beast!😀 It's just a shame I don't have the room to display it.
  3. They did a very British display in the arena. Challenger I & II, Chieftain, Challenger, Chieftain & Centurion recovery vehicles, Vickers mkI, to name a few. They even had the replica Mk IV doing a slow lap. In fact this year the German armour, apart from the Leopards, in the arena was limited to the PanzerIII, a Kettenkraftrad, and a replica A7V
  4. Superb! The fading of the Dunkle Gelb finish is very well done, and I love how you have done the chips and scrapes. Great looking model and a very dynamic and animated display.
  5. Did you see the free, disposable stools they were giving to the people queuing? A great weekend with loads to see. The size of the Elephant was impressive. Booked for next year!
  6. It's Action Man/GI Joe size. here it is with Tamiya's 1/35th scale Kubelwaggen! thanks for all the comments, glad you like it!
  7. Dragon's 1/6th scale type82 Kubelwaggen. I built this some years ago for a magazine review. Due to it's size I had to put it away in the loft where I rediscovered it today. It needed some repairs, and I've lost the passenger side mirror/indicator. When I built it I added a loads of extra detail as it was very simplified, and toy like. I rebuilt the poorly moulded floor grid out of wooden drink stirers and rebuilt tool and weapon clasps out of wire and plastic. The weapons and personal gear comes from various manufacturers. So now fixed, it's back into the loft as I have no where else to put it! Thanks for looking Angelo.
  8. More photos! That top shot looks very nice! Need front, back, both sides, and maybe a quarter on. Panzer grey, like all single colour schemes, can come out bland, but you have done a great job on your Panzer II to vary the tones. But, need more pics!
  9. How Can Man Die Better : The Secrets of Isandlwana Revealed by Colonel Mike Snook. it's literally a blow by blow account of the battle from the perspective of a soldier. It covers the fight by the men of the 24th and how, and where they died. my favourite passage is: All along the rocky ridge, the cry to “fix bayonets!" Was raised. A British soldier is trained to know that when this order is given by his officers, he is about to experience the supreme human ordeal, a hand-to-hand fight, in which the man who can unleash the most primeval aggression is the man who will prevail. The order to fix bayonets invariably causes an adrenaline surge. Men steel themselves to the fray; they know there will be no rules, that it is kill or be killed; their vocal cords raise an involuntary and guttural growl; their faces harden to the scowling and ferocious features of demons. There are few things on this earth as terrifying as a British infantryman with a levelled bayonet.
  10. Great work my young padawan!😀
  11. A bit of a long shot, but does anyone have any of the Hinchcliffe 54mm Zulu war figures they would be willing to sell? Thanks for looking
  12. That is a very nice looking Valentine! I like the camouflage scheme especially. You've done a great job on the weathering, very dusty looking
  13. Hi Badder, glad you like my model😀 The rifle slings were cut from Tamiya masking tape. One end is looped over itself,it's cut to length and glued in place.
  14. Thank you Jim, I'm glad you like my model. Please post up yours too. I would love to see your work. (Don't get a cat! They sit in the model box, or on your lap when you're trying to work!)
  15. Thanks for all the kind comments and compliments, I appreciate them all very much
