      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.

    Cycling, hillwalking, bass playing and eh, modelling...
  1. Gorgeous! Very well done - I've a Hasegawa one in the stash but struggling to find Luftwaffe decals without paying through the nose. If mine turns out half as good I'll be seriously chuffed! 😁
  2. Lovely! I've got the same kit but German variant, which I'm not as keen on - I think you've just inspired me! I'll need to look for some aftermarket decals.
  3. Absolutely beautiful! Excellent work.
  4. Wow! One of the most beautiful aircraft just got beautifulerer! Lovely stuff!
  5. Great work! Keep an eye open for the cinema release of "In The Heart of The Sea" next year, the dramatisation of the story of the Essex.
  6. Photos look good, painting looks good, construction looks, eh...good.
  7. ...and a bigger house!
  8. So they're still heavily reduced? Hmm.... :-)
  9. Cheers Edgar, in what Mrs ModelMonkey would tell you was a typical reversal of decision I ended buying a Hurricane instead! Good to note though as I suspect I might end up with a Spit too...
  10. Zoinks! After all this I went to get a Hurricane (also marked as £30) for my dad, got to the till and the lady said "£20 please." After a few seconds I realised I was staring at her, open mouthed, so I went back for one for myself!
  11. Fab! Thanks Allan, I guess I'd best start the two-fold of thinking where to put it and also decide how to explain it to Mrs ModelMonkey...
  12. Hi peeps - apologies if this is not in the right place, long time lurker and not many posts! Hobbycraft (at least the Aberdeen one) has the 1:24 Airfix Mk V Spitfire for £30. Great bargain but.....I'm much more keen on the Mk1. Does anyone know if the current Mk V boxing also contains the original Mk 1 bits and Airfix have just appended them with Mk V sprues? Conscious I'd need to get a set of decals for a Mk1 but if it means I can get my mitts on a Mk 1 for £30 then I'm very tempted....and would naturally make all the Mk V bits available to anyone wanting to do the opposite to me! Thanks! Paul P.S. Or should I just get the Hurricane instead?!
  13. Belter! Love the pose and might do the same with my Lightning. Great job.
  14. Coo! Finished mine about 2 hours ago. Mine is unintentionally weathered... Yours is lovely, great job.
  15. Love it! Nice work loon!
