      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. All I got done was the filling on the doplar - she made me build a deck yesterday
  2. So the other side is done. That last snag on the snag list that's preventing me priming is this The dreaded doplar. Should be done tomoz. Quick hound update. She's mahoosive now and a total pain in the arrse
  3. well that was a dismal failure!! BUT This works! One down, one to go!
  4. This is the problem with the hinterweb - one of the lads on ARRSE provided some input The steel ballistic panels used to be a **** as they were so heavy, one on the inside of the bottom of each cockpit "door", two smaller ones on the floor either side of the cyclic stick, the companionway floor (turned it into an ice rink when wet), the door plug externally armoured (you've done) and three panels across the floor between station 120 and 160 (between the escape hatch LH and the door RH); these were half inch ish armour plate with cut outs for the cargo tie downs and bolted down in each corner.And the door panels were painted black on both sides, so they don't show up well in pictures (as the whole cockpit is black), as were the cockpit floor panels and the companionway. I can't recall off the top of my head what colour the cabin floor ones were - kind of rusty looking I seem to remember so might have been a red oxide like primer colour. This is what an armour package for a Chinook looks like, and bang goes some of that lovely detail of my air crews lovely Oakley desert boots that I spent so much time on................ see lower door for ballistic plate. Another one for the snag list, but it wont stop me priming it!!
  5. There is - I've got it, but I'm not sure if it goes all the way round. I hadnt spotted that by the way! I've also got the back of that plastic strip to trim off . I' not sure how much I can do on this as I'v got hardly any piccies - that's the best one I've got really. Someone. Somewhere, will be reading this saying 'that's wrong'.........
  6. That will do I think.
  7. maybe it does. I think I'll stick with that
  8. There is is from another angle. Any views? Does that work?
  9. I did..................... its the Peroni. That's my excuse anyway........ hahahaha (as they say). Hello Terry mate - yep I'm good, and close!! Just struggling with this at the minute. Not convinced. Views???????? and got these on just by the armour plate So apart from the Doplar and where the other sand filter where it is attached to the fuel feedline covers, I'm REAL close. I am
  10. Its a bit scary I have to say.......... and thank you by the way. On the finishing touches now before I prime it
  11. managed to crack on a teeny bit. Its the little bits that make the difference InAccurate Armour carbon aerial comes in useful, does it not
  12. Well I suppose they do call them Rockapes
  13. Deffo a joke! I've got the Pinz and 105 to do after this. They should take about 10 minutes in comparison. I've got a whole bunch of other stuff stacked up as well. |Not the least of which is a Fly Wessex. This Wokka will be the last piece of model engineering I ever do I think. I just want to build the bloody things and chill out now! 4 to go. I cant decide if this is impatience or not, but I want to get the antenna pylons on. At least I'll feel like I've achieved something and its another line through on the snag list. I'm actually hoping to nail the entire list this weekend.
  14. Thanks Phil. Just on with the antenna now. I bought the profimodeller brass antenna - I need 5 and there are 18 in the pack, so I'm good for another 2 Chinook......... A few issues to correct, like they are about 5.. too long, and the brass is drilled, which aint any use as the cable/tube sits on top, rather than through the centre. Other than that the Profimodeller brass antenna are spot on for accuracy.................................. My trusty dremel should sort the problem
