      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. Because the sprues are identical, even the photoetch plate has a 2004 copyright on it. Let's see by yourself: http://www.cybermodeler.com/hobby/kits/tru/kit_tru_2807.shtml Philippe
  2. Hello, So, it does not appear to be a new tool kit, but the old tooling with the shallow cockpit and all... Well, let's wait to Airfix, now. Philippe
  3. Hello, A great exercise in weathering, indeed, but completely unrealistic for my taste. Filatov's plane, like most soviet P-39, was well maintained and far for beeing that scruffy: Source: http://www.modellismopiu.it/modules/newbb_plus/print.php?forum=132&topic_id=117352 But once again, this is a matter of personal taste, and the work to obtain that finish is certainely interesting, (to depict an airplane abandoned for years in the tundra, IMHO). Philippe
  4. Hello Michael, If I'm not mistaken, the Eduard Mirage IIIC / IIICJ family shares the same plastic, only the decals and accessories (masks, photoetch ans so on) are not the same. Cheers Philippe
  5. Hello, This is a Mirage IIIS. Switzerland purchased a lone Mirage IIIC to use it as a testbed for the Falcon missile integration. See http://www.mc-one.ch/Documents/right%20stuff/dokuments/IIIC/Mirage%20IIIC%20Instructions.pdf Philippe
  6. Differences

    Hello, You'll find some infos about the interior and the weapons of the Fennec there: http://avions-de-la-guerre-d-algerie.over-blog.com/article-24140042.html Main differences with the T-28D are: No ventral airbrake on the Fennec Additional armour plates on the sides of the forward cockpit Additional air conditioning scoop (already mentioned by Russ) Anti-crash pylon behind the pilot Probably some differences in the cockpit The additional armour plates are visible on this picture: Source: http://fighters.forumactif.com/t57229-t-28-fennec-debut-peinture The Fennecs had two different canopies: Source: http://fighters.forumactif.com/t56878-sud-aviation-fennec?highlight=Fennec All operational Fennecs were silver, the camouflaged one is a modern warbird livery. Hope this helps Philippe
  7. Hello! Look at the path to the picture: www.hphmodels.cz/images/stories/galerie_modelu/Concorde-1-48/48/Concorde-reklama-samostatne5.jpg I think it is more 1:48. Still 1.28 m x 53 cm though. Philippe
  8. Hello MS 406? Philippe
  9. Nick, I agree that the three picture may not be related to each others, but at least the third picture (that shows the famous "The Spook" at Iwo Jima after her accident, april 20th 1945) clearly shows a fixed guns installation with a fairing that is not related to the regular Northrop turret. And, for me, this not an opinion, honest or not, it is a fact . There are other pictures of "The Spook" that show this fairing, and it looks a lot like the first picture provided by Sergey Kosachev on Hyperscale. So, we can assume that at least "The Spook" had a fixed gun installation with a fairing that looks a lot to the pictures provided by Sergey, and it's also my opinion (but I don't force anyone to share it) that this kind of fairng was used on several P-61 in the Pacific theatre of war. Kind Regards Philippe
  10. Hello, There, you'll find pictures of the fixed guns cover usually used in south western Pacific: http://www.network54.com/Forum/149674/message/1341523185/Turret It was not identical to the standard turret, in my honest opinion. HTH Philippe
  11. Quickboost also does one Spitfire door, reference 48 538: Source: http://www.quickboost.net/148.htm Philippe
  12. Hello, HF-L has the small tailplanes (serial JR128). As for underwing stores, it is usually pictured with bomb pylons: Source: http://www.vicflintham.co.uk/post-war-military-aircraft/typhoon/typhoon.html Philippe
  13. Hello, If you are looking for 1/32, then you could have a look at Master Details products: Master Details pilots and aircrews HTH Philippe
  14. Here's a french one: Image source: WIX, can also be found on Footnote Piloted by Capt. Georges Valentin, GC II/7 (326 sqn) in 1943. And another one: Source: Histavia21 GR2/33, Dijon, 1944 Philippe
  15. Hello, Roy does offer the 5-spoked variety too: Barracudacast 5-spoked Spitfire wheel HTH Philippe
