      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. is that by any chance the Monogram kit? I have one release of this kit and it has those markings.
  2. Thank You SimonT ! you found what I was looking for. @ Lawzer I have used these on a couple of Spitfires (MK Vb,VIII,IX) with good results. (sorry no photos currently available)
  3. I do know of one in .PDF format but cannot seem to find it on my computer or the link on the net.
  4. yeah , I don't know how any model kit manufacturer can miss it ???
  5. for my models of "Carol's Daddy" and "Mrs. Virginia" I am planning on stealing them from P-40 kits. looks like the angle of the spine might be close enough. but, I haven't actually done it yet so I can't guarantee it will work
  6. tell me about it ! I much prefer the original (1981?) British miniseries for HHGTTG instead of the new movie version ; the movie deviated too much from the book series.
  7. nice job on those kits. and Thank You for building these for veterans , that is a very nice touch
  8. thank you for that link , JWM ! there are some good photos there, one I would like to colorize.
  9. one other thing the others might not be considering... if viewing this on a modern HD computer monitor it's capable of a degree of brightness that was impossible in the 1940's filters were used in the 40's - they were for anti-glare purposes and were available in red or green if you really want to start a war start a new topic "Interpreting Soviet WWII colors from black-and-white photos" that will surely light a raging bonfire
  10. nice vid , thanks for the tip (downloaded that one and part 2 !)
  11. in the case of the Hellcat ; the Hasegawa (F6F-5) is very nice , but so is the ARII (F6F-3) for the Thunderbolt ...TAMIYA ; miles better than any other kit of the t-bolt. (if you want to do a late model P-47 (D-30,D-35,D-40) you will have to buy the P-47M kit) Lightning ? I agree with Jessica ; Academy or Hasegawa
  12. I have 2 copies of Tamiya's PR IV / B IV kit and I am not using the rockets from them. you are welcome to them if you want them. they are what is shown in this photo : https://www.cybermodeler.com/hobby/kits/tam/images/tam_mosquitonf13_parts6.jpg
  13. ... you forgot "Impatient Virgin"
  14. if you had one of the early issues of the ICM Yak-9 or Yak-7 it was necessary to get rid of the thick , heavy brown mold release agent the kits were bathed in. paint just didn't stick to it ; sometimes glue didn't either.
  15. I was able to log in (after many attempts to remember my password ) maybe send Massimo an email ? or try registering a new username/password ???
