      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. Thanks Admiral.
  2. I ordered a resin 1/48 Vampire kit 2 months ago. One month ago, I got an email saying that the order was processing. Emailed yesterday. No word as of yet. Anyone have any dealings with this company? I'm getting worried.
  3. Great job Ken. I want one!
  4. Looked this one up....pretty big so 1/72 is ok.
  5. Engines look good..
  6. Never heard of danger mouse..
  7. Danger man. Awesome show. Blows Bond away. IMHO
  8. Downloaded Google translate. It does not say which aircraft kit is being tested. Nothing of fine molds kit.
  9. "It will swoop down and rain death and destruction to the enemy on the beaches regardless of fighter defense!" "Of course none of you thought of that!" from; The First and the Last. Adolph Galland.
  10. Hmmm. Don't read Japanese
  11. Yes indeed. Looks like the Fine molds kit. The engine is so lousy though.
  12. I built the Nichimo hayabusa. Beautiful kit. But I am looking for the later ki-43ii.
  13. Awwww. Nick. I was hoping you were gonna tell me that only the early mark I was affected. Went here: http://www.aviationofjapan.com/2009/01/hayabusa-lines.html?m=1 I wonder if one can just sand/fill the top portion of the fuselage behind the cowling...
  14. I remember that there is a fuselage shape issue with the ki-43i early kit. IIRC, it was the curve between the canopy and the cowling. The i version is flat, the kit is curved. My question is, are the later marks so affected? Looking at getting a Ki-43 ii Ko. Thanks
