      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. I refer the honourable member to my answer below.......
  2. I am working on a Hurricane Mk 1 and I will certainly use yours as the example to follow. I think its an excellent piece of work that I can imagine would really stand out on a club display or the like.
  3. I know this is going to make me feel so inadequate but I can't take my eyes off it!
  4. Excellent!
  5. Like that a lot. I have that in my stash - any problems with it?
  6. Looks very good and a quick tutorial/few notes on products and techniques for the mud would be greatly appreciated!
  7. Looking good.
  8. I've been looking at Hurricane pictures before starting my new mould Airfix 1:48 aircraft. I haven't decided on a particular aircraft yet so haven't looked for specific pictures yet. I bought a set of CMK control surfaces and the fin does not include the short mast for the aerial wire. Do I presume that early aircraft were fitted with the wire and later aircraft were not? I understand that that was what happened with the Spitfire. TIA Matthew
  9. Lovely work!
  10. When you produce something as nice as that it deserves a good few photos! How did you do the grass? Also I'm not sure about the aerial. I've looked to see if they were definitely fitted and some were and some weren't. I haven't decided whether I'll fit one to mine. M
  11. I've actually had success with a spot of Araldite! I tried many of the ideas above but found it very difficult with a Bf109 undercarriage because of the angles. In the end blobs of Araldite worked very well (with due attention to touching up etc.!.
  12. Thanks all, I'll do some experiments.
  13. I've just struggled to spray some Galeria Matte and wonder whether I hadn't thinning it enough (with water). Can anyone offer any advice. TIA Matthew
