      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. Hi all well here's the next update. I made the Speedo cable from some more network cable painted black.
  2. Sounds good mate, look forward to it.
  3. Ok I just didn't want to miss any of it. Is the helmet a kit or are you scratch building it.
  4. Hi mate any progress on this?
  5. Hi all here's the next update I made the break and fuel lines out of stripped network wires I much prefer larger scales, I mean look how small this engine is Compared to this Those window blind slats are 4 inches (approximately 100 mill) How you guys add so much detail to 1/24 kits I take my hat off to you.
  6. This is all looking superb, there's always so much to learn from this build, thanks for posting it.
  7. That last pic is a close up of the problem you see the black piece sticking out, the other black bit in front of it is supposed to be on the end of it. I think it's called the catshead and the bit that's broken is called the whisker (or so I've been informed)
  8. Not sure what happened there mate I can only apologise I've used tinypic for years and never had a problem this is on other forums (in fact this is a copy and paste from the original forum) no one has mentioned this on any other forum, I've gone through them and all I get is the picture as it should be, if you tell me which pic is causing the problem I will remove it.
  9. Hi all on this again (at least until I get back to the Thermopylae)
  10. Hi all for those of you who use these colours DO NOT LEAVE THEM IN DIRECT SUNLIGHT Here is my Traction Avant after very little time in the sun, it went from this. To this And it's not confined to candy orange this is how the red looks after the same period in the sun
  11. Hi all well this is shelved again for a while I've broken the (I don't know what it's called) the bit that tensions the bowsprit, I'm not actually sure how to fix it as it's very thin plastic and superglue doesn't seem to work I'm so annoyed at my clumsiness, this is the fourth time I've broken something on this kit. I will fix it, it's just annoying.
  12. Hi all, well we had a great day yesterday, we went with our best friends to see bat out of hell the musical at the London colliseum (it was 84 quid a ticket) but it was the best 84 quid we ever spent mind you a round of drinks in the bar was 34 quid, needless to say we only had one round that said they had their own brand of beer.I highly recommend the show it's 3 hrs long with a 20 min break, if you, like me love Meatloaf you will love it.
  13. Bloomin PB are sure ruining a lot of people's viewing enjoyment. They must be one of the most hated hosting sites out there at the moment.
  14. Hi all, well that's one mast finished, only 2 more to go.
  15. Hi all here is the next update I'm actually quite shocked and proud, my missus just said you can't stick that in your junk yard(what she calls my spares room)she said I just can't think where to put it, maybe we could get a display cabinet.
