      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. That is pretty much the nature of the problem.
  2. It is very nice, I am never quite sure whether invasion stripes look best neatly or hastily done but yours look convincing on this Spitfire.
  3. Very nice. I have one of these waiting to be built in my Matchbox stash, sadly my kit is missing it's canopies though.
  4. You have made an excellent job of this old kit. I have one of these in my stash but I am to torn between the two decal options to build it, maybe I should buy a second kit. The losses suffered by the Devastator squadrons is a very sad story that reminds me of the Battle squadrons during the Battle of France in 1940.
  5. I was forced to do the same thing.
  6. I am very disappointed with photobucket for spoiling our gallery.
  7. I like it lots. The old Frog kit waits in my stash.
  8. Nice to see another Airfix Mosquito being built, lovely stuff.
  9. That is a very nice job of one of my old favorites.
  10. It looks really good, what scale is it?
  11. Exactly and it is always great to see a nice bit of Matchbox.
  12. It looks absolutely spot on. Just starting to get more interested in Frog kits myself, these old kits make super looking models.
  13. I understand the temptation to improve these old kits but when people do they lose their original look. With certain kits such as this one it is the original look (the imperfections) that I now try to bring out the most, it was my way to remove the imperfections but I finished up with models that looked much different to how I remembered them. What I try to achieve these days is an old model that looks exactly how I remember it, just neatly built with the gaps filled in and no glue on the canopy. Best of luck with your build and I hope the conversion is not to much trouble.
  14. This is interesting stuff, plus a nice model of course.
