      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. Dinah is one of my favorite aircraft. Your build is looking good. Can't wait to see it finished. btw I'm gonna use your build as a reference for my airfix 1/72 \\Dan
  2. Finn beat me to it! I think F-105 was the only aircraft in USAF with both types of refueling receptors. Regarding F-104 Colors. AFAIK all F-104 wheelwells and undercarrige were in aluminum. They just look white in the pictures due to the lighting. I have tried to find a real source regarding airbrake colors but haven't found any other than checking pictures. Aluminum seems dominating, some green and a few even in zinkchromate yellow. Also I couldn't see any pattern as to which are which regarding type/build year/owner/camouflage etc. But generally they are aluminum. \\Dan
  3. I have had an idea of making a 1/72 Connie for 20 years or so. Size is the largest factor for not starting :/ So it's fun to at least watch your build untill then. Good luck Raiderhall! \\Dan
  4. Very nice Alex. I realy like the livery. I have had a similar idea. Mine is to convert the awacs to a 737. But the model is in the bottom of my ever expanding stash in the closet. >.< \\Dan
  5. IMHO the Bronco don't get the attention it deserves. You do credit to this little plane! \\Dan
  6. Very nice Tony. I like it! \\Dan
  7. Ughh... I remember that one. Well done thepureness! \\Dan
  8. Absolutely amazing craftsmanship. There isn't much more to say compared with 7 pages of praise. 5.5 years is long but the result speak for itself! Well done Andrew. I realy love the watermodelling. I wish I could see it in person. Now I'm gonna go and spend a couple of hours reading the WIP thread. \\Dan
  9. Nice idea. I will use this in my own future project. Also a good build! \\Dan
  10. I guess the kit makers are deliberately making baby-steps improvements, just like any manufacturer. I am waiting for a recessed panel line with rivets protruding. Your model looks excellent though. I myself have one in my closet waiting for a rainy day. \\Dan
  11. Remember the best model is a finished model! God knows I'm worse than you Well done on a clean build.
  12. The metallic shading looks real and I love the red tail. Excellent!
  13. Personally I am not satisfied with Revel but I think you have done an excellent job!
