      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. Cracking job, well done, she certainly looks the part. All the best Chris
  2. Very nicely done Paul, they make a great pair. All the best Chris
  3. Had a great day at Smallspace, thanks to Paul and Matt for putting on another memorable Sci-fi show. It was great to chat to Stu and a few others from here as well as some very interesting guests from the stage and screen world. All the best Chris
  4. Hi Stu, borg in scale too big, same with romulan Valdore, would have a 15 inch wingspan. all the best Chris
  5. So more on the Star Trek building front, First up is a Borg Cube, scale unknown, this is the furata snap fix kit, with a custom paint job. (The cube comes moulded in black) Enamel Gun metal and flourescant paint added. Next up is a Ferengi Marauder, scale unknown, AMT adversary pack, hand painted in humbrol enamels. The decals are slightly visible as i havent had a chance to satin cote yet. Next up is the Enterprise D, scale 1/2500 by AMT, which is the largest of the lot, hand painted in humbrol enamels with a mind numbing 74 decals. 2nd pic hand of Q, LOL Warren the 5 ltr tin shot (see you at Smallspace) Next up is the sleek Enterprise E, 1/2500 by AMT, hand painted in humbrol enamels with a mind numbing 68 decals, (Watch out when applying the engine decals, see my earlier thread). Finally a couple of WIP display photos, apart from the Borg Cube and Ferengi Marauder, they are all 1/2500 scale from the 1701 refit to the 1701-E, Klingon K'tinga & USS reliant. Note on Enterprise C "awaiting orbital dry dock", having binned the AMT decals (if you can call them that, more like coloured flakes) im awaiting a new set of 3rd party decals to complete. Live Long and Prosper All the best Chris

  12. Cheers Warren, i wish 14ml standard variety tin, 5 ltr would be a nice size to build. Hoping to have the display in a work in progress state Smallspace, still got a few more ships and a space station to go before completed. Mick about the decals, the five ships above generally ok, key is a satin paint finish and split the application over 3-4 days as once on the slightest touch lifts them, so work an area then leave to set and finally seal with a satin cote. The one thing i will say is that the decals for the A dont line up around the saucer section, leaving the front windows offset, which once they are on they are very hard to move without copious amounts of water, also in some places the carrier film needs to be trimmed right up to the decal. Currently doing the enterprise C, the primary hull decals (4-5 inch diameter) disentegrated on touch once applied, have sourced a replacement set from federationmodels.com, so the C is ready but no decals on as they are in the bin. The D is in paint at the moment so no idea about the decals yet, fingers crossed they seem in smaller sections than the C was which helps, i hope. The E is somewhere in between, give them a good soaking before trying to apply to the point they lift off the backing, the larger decals are brittle, had a couple of breaks but joined ok when applied. So far as only done the top half and engines, watch out for the engine decals they go on ok but the top blue section to the engines breaks up once applied with the slightest touch. So some covering paintwork required once sealed. if i find any more problems ill let you know. All the best Chris
