      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. don't tell anyone - its a secret but its actually the real thing - Thunderbirds are REAL !!
  2. well my postman just delivered me a Revell snap fix star destroyer to join my armada of other destroyers - my 1977 Kenner and my Disney Store ISD now have a baby brother - every office needs a touch of Star wars on the desktop
  3. great lighting work - looks like the inside of C3PO - good to see it all lit up after all that wiring work
  4. looking absolutely amazing and totally realistic - shame these have not been produced as real war machines for the 21st century modern forces - we must be fairly close to being able to produce mechanical technology that can walk into war ..
  5. a few photos showing the TIE Fighter launch chute within the internal hangar chamber - primed and ready for fine detailing tidying up the trenches and adding a lot of Evergreen to blend the side strips to the uneven body plates
  6. so Photobucket have picked on me now - here's a test using Flckr
  7. he's coming to life - nice
  8. I just don't know how you figure modellers turn out this type of quality - quite amazing
  9. Hi Phil - your Photobucket account has fallen foul to the new 3rd party charge policy - no pictures which is a shame as I really could have done with access to your data base a few weeks back
  10. looks brilliant - love the figures - add's a nice touch
  11. Spankingly good
  12. lovely U wing - great collection - the more I keep seeing this Revell U Wing pop up takes me one step closer to actually buying the kit - the only problem is that it would sit on the shelf for ages so I should just content myself with enjoying the work of other talented modellers such as your kit here.
  13. how cool - what a collection and great display - great work
