      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. Another pick up from me, again excellent service. Can't praise these guys enough.
  2. Another 2 kits purchased and collected last week. Great stuff. I 'll be round there again in a couple of weeks
  3. I phoned through an order this morning and collected it at 12.30 in the afternoon. Cracking service and my thanks go out to Andrew and co
  4. Nice, very nice. I like that. There's just something about a Mirage...
  5. Afternoon chaps I've been lurking on these boards for some time with a little dip into the aircraft section every now and then. In her wisdom she who must be obeyed has purchased an airfix Saturn V for me to complete so that she can donate it to the local school for a display they have planned. This is all well and good but she suggested that I somehow display is horizontally and in segments so that the "intricate details" - her words, can be seen. I seem to remember seeing someone on here had scratch built a cradle similar to those used at the Johnson Space Centre. My question is this, can anyone point me in the right direct to the thread so I can take a look at how it was achieved and if it's within my capabilities?
  6. I plan on unleasing a gr9 on Friday, kids permitting. I'll watch this with interest
  7. Thanks for the welcome guys. Rich I seem to remember a model shop in that area? Are they any good, good choices?
  8. Hello everyone, I'm new here and want to introduce myself. I live in Cannock Staffordshire and have been gazing upon this forum for a few months as a visitor. I've taken up modelling (again) and it's been nigh on 30 years since I last completed one (theres a pattern I notice on the threads) An Airfix Canberra I think was the last one, painted with a brush in silver . Met an untimely death at the hands of some airfix small soldiers and a lit match in the garden... My boys inspired me to get back into it and I must say how things have changed since I was last "on the tools". I must say I'm in awe of some if not most of the work I see on these boards and aspire to be a fraction as talented. I've recently completed two 1/72 examples, both airfix. An Fw190 and a F86F Sabre. The boys love them, my limited skills and self critical thoughts tell another story. Anyhow, I look forward to contributing with words and pictures when I can.
