      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. Hi does anyone recognise these figures, they came in a mixed box of kits. They are quite small, maybe 1/144-1/200, appear to be Napoleonic in nature, quite well sculpted. Maybe war gaming? http://IMG_20170324_130409 http://IMG_20170324_130428 http://IMG_20170324_130402 http://IMG_20170324_130504
  2. Kits For Cash have sold out of the Grob and Tutor and wont be producing any more unfortunately.
  3. Thanks chap, I just nabbed their last set .
  4. Yes they are out of stock right now.
  5. Does anyone know of a UK stockist for the Authentic Decals AD7202 propeller markings sheet or is it a US job?
  6. Sorry wrong forum!

  8. Thanks guys, great links and info. .
  9. Seems I can't post in wanted - I have also built the S6B, but the Frog kit (which is better), and the decals instantly shattered. So I painted the tail by hand - which means the blue will match - and applied serials form Model Decals set 104, RAF interwar numbers and letters. The white outlines could be wider but did the job

      Interesting thank you, I have one set on the way, perhaps I can combine the two and make my own decals.

  10. Does anyone know of a current producer of aftermarket canopies for this model in 1/72, preferably for the Italeri kit?

  12. Thanks chap, I want a few bits off him now
  13. Mine was a Manta B, 2 litre but running a 2.2 head, Kent 214 cam, twin Weber 45's, 2" Powerflow exhaust...I think I was getting about 140-150 bhp.
  14. I never had one either, my best friend was a huge fan, he had loads, I was into Opel Mantas myself, had 4 of them. Spent a lot of time tuning his Fiats though, led me to owning a few Alfa 156's!
  15. True, it was standard on the later models, the earlier ones had much cleaner lines.
