      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. Hi Folks, Thought I'd best drop in a picture to prove this build is still alive! Still slow progress but moving forward
  2. Thank you Stix. Progress is slow due to work and home. I'm also at Goodwood FoS tomorrow so it could be another weekend behind the safety car
  3. My contibution is in the gallery
  4. Looking superb. Some great work here
  5. Wow!! The finished article is set to be stunning!!
  6. This is looking wonderful Steve. Such a good build!!
  7. Hi Stix, Been busy with work and home so not dropped in for a couple of weeks. These looks amazing. Really looking forward to the Yak and final diorama
  8. Thanks Ray Enjoying the sunshine this weekend - too good to be indoors hence progress may be delayed slightly
  9. Looks brilliant. 'Blu Tack' is all I've ever used and I think it does the job just great
  10. Hi Stix, This build was awaiting the completion of my KV-1 but she's round the first corner now so here's a few more pics of the progress to date. I was looking at aftermarket seatbelts but opted for the 'box' option. Whilst the camera is very critical, they don't look too bad to the naked eye.
  11. Great progress x 3!! Looking good Stix
  12. Hi Glynn, I couldn't justify the cost of the carbon decals. They were more than twice the price of what I paid for the kit (with etched parts). Particularly as the finished build will sit on a shelf that's understood by neither the wife nor kids
  13. Found some decals (in Italy) and hoping they'll arrive soon. In the interim, the build has commenced and there's a lot of black painting involved. It's surprising how the black parts strain the eyes so much! Spot the coloured paint!
  14. Nice progress! Agree with comments re. the decals - they look superb (as does the paint)
