      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. Question: does anyone make generic rounded postwar black and/or gray serials suitable for a 1/48 Mosquito? Thank you very much for any suggestions.
  2. Thanks Antti! I appreciate the information and have downloaded the photo(s). Just wondering why the B roundels in 1950? Best wishes and thank you again.
  3. I am researching Squadron 13 operations along the southern border of the Soviet Union and request help in identifying the color scheme adopted in the 1948-1949 period. Most sources show high speed silver while others show PRU blue. Many thanks for references. Link below to a mosquito in PRU blue http://www.spyflight.co.uk/iafvraf.htm
  4. http://www.peoplesmosquito.org.uk/2016/08/01/a-rare-bird-at-iwakuni-part-1/ can anyone shed some light on this Mosquito in Japan 1953? It may have been attached to a squadron of Austers thsnks! Charles
  5. http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/thumb/b/b7/Pulqui_II_(No.4_camo).jpg/440px-Pulqui_II_(No.4_camo).jpg Was the color an overall aluminum or some deeper shade of bronze? I am aware that the lastest models were white. Thanks in advance.
  6. Roger that.
  7. Greetings all, I am planning to build my 1/48 Eduard 109E-3 and note that several resin sets exist for this beautiful kit; I understand the thought behind the detailed wheel and cockpit sets; however what is the basic advantage to the gun mount set--it appears to be close to identical to the kit parts. Thank you in advance for your comments and observations.
  8. Thanks for the research! Wondering what those KG200's looked like!
  9. Hi, and thanks. Ju-290 flight is fairly well established. I think at least one Condor made it. Let me know what you find and compare notes. Many thanks!
  10. Greetings all. I have read that US OSS agents reported sightings of FW 200 transports in Manchukuo in 1945. Specifically sighted in Harbin. Can anyone comment on whether such sightings are plausible and in addition, is there any record of FW 200's in the KG 200 commando unit? Assuming yes, what color scheme was utilized? Many thanks in advance.

  12. Does anyone know the approximate price point of the B-36?
  13. Many thanks!! I appreciate the explanation!
