      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. Here's how they both look today. Sean
  2. 2 lots of Eduard 1/48 Spitfire Mk VIII overtrees so that I can use more of the decals from the Aussie 8 set. Sean
  3. The Sea Hurricane is now ready for the AML masks and some Slate grey. The IIC has progressed nicely and the main camouflage is now complete. Some touch ups are required but it's not too shabby if I say so myself. Sean
  4. Great minds think alike because that's the option I've decided on as well. No particular reason, it just looks good Sean
  5. Both are now looking resplendent in grey (well almost resplendent). The Sea Hurricane is lagging behind slightly because I only found the correct paint this evening while the IIC got a coat of ocean grey last night and another earlier today. Sean
  6. I've still got to fit the canopy on the Sea Hurricane. There may be a slight delay on the Sea Hurricane as well because I can't seem to locate any EDSG in the house although I might be able to get away with some Dark Sea Grey instead. I need to find that as well mind Sean
  7. The Italeri kit threw one more curveball at me before I was able to paint the underside. I managed to lose one half of the chin intake so I had to scratch build a new piece which was mildly tricky because it's so small. It's ok from the sides but a little rough from the underside. Once that had been dealt with I then gave it a couple of coats of Revell Sky. I've also managed to get a couple of coats of Tar black on the underside of the Revell kit. Sean
  8. Tonight's work mostly consisted of very careful sanding of the nose ring on the Italeri kit. I still need to do a little more work scraping the inside to make it look more like the real thing but I'm fairly satisfied with how it looks now. Work on the Revell kit is mostly concentrated on the rear fuselage to wing join and fitting the Master barrels. Sean
  9. Another thing I've noticed on the Italeri kit is the bulges on the upper cowl look far too big compared with those pictures you posted. I'll try incorporate more of those modifications in the other Hasegawa kit as that one is a little more involved anyway with having to cut the rear fuselage for the hook insert. Sean
  10. They're very much of interest Troy, thanks for posting. I'll try a little bit more sanding and shaping of the Italeri nose to see if I can get it looking better. I'm going to leave the wing tips of the Hasegawa/Revell kit as it is because I don't think I'll be able to replicate the panel detail at the moment once modified. But I've got another Hasegawa kit to do as a Sea Hurricane IIC so that will be really useful when I get around to that one. Sean
  11. When the Airfix DH spinner is put on the Italeri kit, the shape issue becomes much more obvious with a step all the way around its circumference. The Italeri one looks weird when put on the kit as well. I'm just going to hide it under a canvas cover. I lost most of the panel detail anyway when sanding so that's 2 birds with one stone Airfix spinner on Italeri kit Italeri kit with Italeri spinner The Revell/Hasegawa kit is moving on swimmingly and I've got the Master cannon barrels on one wing as well as the radiator. Sean
  12. A quick comparison between the Italeri DH prop and the Airfix DH prop. The Airfix one definitely looks better, the Italeri one looks too bloated and stubby. Italeri is the darker grey, Airfix is lighter grey. In other news, the Dissolved putty worked a treat on the engine cowls and wings. It didn't work so well on the Revell kit for the underside wing-fuselage join though, that requires some more putty and careful sanding to preserve the fabric effect. Sean
  13. I decided I needed to try something different for me for filling these seams. The joins were quite shallow so my usual fillers didn't adhere well and came away when sanded. So I got some Mr Dissolved Putty which arrived today and applied it this morning so we'll see how that turns out. Sean
  14. These 2 beauties. Got me another double build coming soon Sean
  15. Very odd. A coat of primer has shown that the join on my kit isn't perfect, but it's nothing like that. I've not had to do any modifications either. Having said that, I have a feeling that something inside came loose when fitting the wing so that might have ironically benefited with the fit Sean
