      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.

  13. Well-known British modeller, aviation historian and enthusiast and also a fine fellow and friend Tony O’Toole has been very kind to send us a couple of photos of his latest achievement, the 1/72 model of RAAF A-20G Havoc. The original kit is Special Hobby 72539 A-20G “South West PacificWarrior” built in less than a week and finished using an aftermarket decal sheet. Our model´s decal sheet caters for different schemes though, there are two American options (Green Hornet and Miss Pam) and an Australian option (DU-P dubbed Hilda Shane). Jolly nice model Tony, thank you for sharing it with us! complete gallery at our blog here: http://www.specialhobby.info/2017/05/172-20g-in-aussie-guise.html
