      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.

    I enjoy making 1/48th scale aircraft. Also, both 1/48th and 1/35th armour.
    Mainly Tamiya these days simply because they go together so well.

  1. Hi Jaime, Good idea to have another model lined up just in case. I'm keeping this in reserve should the Walrus not be released in time. Cheers, Joe.
  2. I've always loved the Dakota. Could I please join the group.
  3. Hello Jaime, I intend to use the new Airfix Walrus. The decal sheet from Hannants has some very nice colour schemes on it. I've put a link below should you wish to view it. https://www.hannants.co.uk/product/X48178 Also below, a link to the yellow Walrus that I hope to build. http://www.xnatmap.org/viat/docs/various/Walrus HI.htm
  4. Hello Jaime, I'm thinking this could be my entry for the group build. I like the Walrus from HMAS Labuan. I've also tried a link from Imgur for the first time to see how it works. The link is below should anyone wish to try it. http://www.hyperscale.com/imgurtutorialmo_1.htm
  5. I don't know if this is of any help. I noticed it on Hyperscale this morning. http://www.hyperscale.com/imgurtutorialmo_1.htm
  6. That looks superb Devo. I have the same kit waiting for me to build. I hope mine turns out as good as yours. Regards, Joe.
  7. Great little model. The colour looks just right. Regards, Joe
  8. That's an impressive collection of options Jaime.
  9. Very good figures. I like the way the detail shows. Joe
  10. Hi Jaime, good idea, I'll look forward to seeing them. cheers, Joe
  11. Hello Jaime, don't let me put you off. Your more adventurous than me when it comes to Group Builds. I have a couple of models in mind. Not sure which one I will go for yet, but I will keep it simple for myself. looking forward to the start. Joe
  12. Good lord Ced, I'm trying to find the most simple build I can find, and you and Jaime are building monsters, and lots of them! Sorry I didn't make it to the show today. I hope you had a nice time if you went.
  13. Maybe Airfix will retool some of their old subjects. New tooling of 1/72nd. I would like to see either a Buccaneer, Wellington or a Hercules. New tooling of 1/48th, my choices would be a Firefly Mk5, Avro Anson or a Grumman Gosling in Royal Navy markings. And a 1/350 HMS Victorious please Airfix.
  14. It was the grey that confused me.
  15. Nice progress. Is this the new Tamiya release? Regards, Joe
