      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. i remember it well! bomb bay is awesome as ever.
  2. looks like its going to be straight out of the comics i read when i was a kid, cool!
  3. Its finished! what the hell am I going to read now?? Seriously impressive stuff and a manual on how good things can be done if the will is there.
  4. I like the much improved shape of the shoulders and especially the back. It has filled out his torso nicely, and he looks like he is wearing armour now.
  5. Love it obviously!! 😍
  6. You certainly know how to make life difficult for yourself, very nice result! It's nice to see a build like this to pick up some real modeling skills from.
  7. Maybe the HET never made it there, i have no idea, but i do remember having a pic of a near identical challenger on one, but obviously have no idea where that pic was taken. Lets call it modelers licence ., Thats the best (only!) pic ive seen of the underside of a king trailer. i did think it odd to have half the tracks overhanging the bed, i thought at first it was a scale error between the two models!! Tea makes everything better...except stupid design. i have an antar mk2 and tasker trailer ill be sticking a chieftain arv on. if you have any pics of the bottom of those id appreciate them
  8. Thanks for the replies, but im afraid it been finished for months so theres no changing it now general concensus was that the chains went through the larger holes, through the holes to the lugs or were wrapped around the suspension. (or indeed anything available) Its not the full tes, just the first basic DL2 up armour package, and its on an in -theater Kosovo KFOR tank. so that solved both questions i think DSC03322 by omgpainful, on Flickr look forward to seeing your builds!!
  9. absolute stunner, its been an education to follow.
  10. cool helmet glow. its all looking very sharp now.
  11. got to agree, that decaling looks brill.
  12. Its finished. It was not a pleasant experience. Thanks for the encouragement, it was sorely needed. In the end it looks like a Wessex, and the small additions like the nitesun, ir jammer and aerials make it OK to look at, but it was far too much hard work to make me want to repeat it or reccommend the kit to anyone else. Its the only GB i have failed to finish in time. cant blame that solely on the kit though. Ill post a pic to prove it here and maybe a couple more in a RFI post. There are a few more in the same Flickr album. Good luck to all yet to finish, and well done to those that did.
  13. and now the body is finished, minus aerials a couple of handles etc, had a semi flat coat and a bit of a panel line wash. Glad to see the tape didnt pull off the alclad gloss coat i dipped the canopy in. the nitesun needs a lens in it too. the example build in the instructions show a nice red decal around the exhausts with the correct text on them. the ones supplied in the kit had no text and were so small they actually sat inside the exhaust mount!!!! another example of a seemingly 1/72 scale part!! rubbish doesnt cover it. i had to spray the red on and dirty it up so it didnt stick out like a sore thumb ill get around to the rotors very soo. nearly there thank God.
  14. when i saw an earlier pic i thought "oops, the driver doesnt fit" now he has his arms on i can see it supposed to be like that 😋 really does look the part now all those decals are on!
  15. Good to see a really nice one finished!
