      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. Serial looks like 33ZR70 to me.
  2. Yes the price (in the UK anyway) is a little steep, but I will have to have the RAF version!
  3. Whoo Hoo more Mosquitoes, you cant have too many of Hatfield's finest!!!
  4. There soon will be http://www.aim72.co.uk/page188.html
  5. The Horsa was designed at Salisbury Hall and the first pair were built there.
  6. And what about Airspeed, it being a wholly owned subsidiary of de H from 1940!
  7. Hmmmm bit of a minefield that one, I would go along with the 146, as it was built at Hatfield with a workforce that was still dominated by de H (my father did almost 40 years at Hatfield, de H/HS/BAe) and it is numbered in the old de H series but presumably that then excludes any Woodford (Avro) assembled 146 airframes and the later RJ's, although the front fuse was still Hatfield built?
  8. Hmmmm why not make it as an RAF F-4J(UK) and then wait for the Airfix FG.1 later this year?
  9. Some neat FAA airmen coming from CMK on there, not cheap though!!
  10. I've got many Hawker subjects waiting to get built, from an Audax or two to hawks and a Nimrod, so count me in on this one please!
  11. I use Ikea Billy bookcases with glass shelves and glass doors.
  12. Some, well at least XS711, did wear that colour scheme Adey!
  13. I'll second that about the Argosy, I have two of the Mach 2 in the stash and haven't had the confidence to start them yet!
  14. Great build of the old Airfix Land Rover!
  15. Another vote for Billy bookcases with glass shelves (and glass doors), I already have a couple as display cabinets (and will need another soon) just a shame they don't do the 500mm deep ones any more!!
