      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. Gentleman, thank you All very sound advice, and taken on board. I don't have too much of an issue using the branded stuff for thinning, but its hard to justify it for cleaning. Especially now the modelling budget is being stretched. The little man wants his own Maskol, masking tape, brushes!
  2. Outstanding support and advise gentleman, Thank you, I was once told car screen wash and water for acrylics ??? !!! Alex I was with you all the way, until a couple of weeks ago. I just threw a P51 together for my son ( he wanted a Jolly Wrenches/Dusty Crophopper thing ) I used some Tamiya acrylics thru the airbrush, and was staggered at not only how good it looked, but how much easier it was to spray and clean. Anyway cheers muchly all
  3. Hi Guys can anyone suggest a cheaper alternative to Humbrol Enamel thinners. Not long been back into modelling. I'm slowly going from moving from Humbrol enamels to Tamiya acrylics, so a alternative to X-20A thinners would be really helpful too. When you have two young kids that want new school shoes, new bikes, Lego and such like. The cost of branded thinners is hard to come by, plus its just a rip off ! Cheer for any advice
  4. welcome are you set up in photobucket? you just copy and paste the url
  5. Hi Guys back again with new name! had massive issues trying to log in with the old one, so I have started again Cant get the picture of me and jack at Hendon as avatar (maybe one of the administrators could assist? !!!) work, Christmas and general family life has meant little action on the modelling front. but we have both been had a go at airbrushing. early days, but from little acorns ! Have also started riveting too. Hears what we've been up to anyway Jacks (age5) black Hawk Dads vampire nothing fantastic. but totally hooked and every kit is better than the last, and driving me to a higher level of detail
  6. If only. Mmmmmmmmmmmmm. 1/32 GR sprue
  7. I think he means this. I hope. http://z13.invisionfree.com/Tornado_SIG/index.php?showtopic=855
  8. Many thanks Andreas. I know that if it makes an appearance at Telford you will need to crowbar Andy off of it. I know I will sound like a broken record but hopefully the 1/48 will be successful enough to convince them to re-release the man-scale kit. Steve P.s. Is it just me or is this shaping up to be the most eagerly awaited kit for some time?
  9. Just found this. Woo hoo, check the bottom picture. http://www.hyperscale.com/2013/galleries/eftyphoontwoseater32dw_1.htm Storm Shadow, Taurus and a GAF recce pod. Yeeha, some goodies for my Tornado's.
