      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. Needles/nozzles are easier to change and less prone to damage with H & S while changing them than Iwata. Went the Iwata way at first but wouldn't touch one with a barge pole now. Just my 2 cents...................................................................
  2. Gorgeous work Richard, love the plumbing you are adding !
  3. Hi Richard, thank you very much. There is method to their madness, and that goes for this camouflage style too
  4. Thanks Chris, It's quite a fun paint job actually, really enjoying it. The paint job is one of the most colorful I could find: http://www.tanks-encyclopedia.com/ww1/fr/renault_ft.php
  5. Thanks Dan, you are doing a rather complicated work-over yourself on that Sea King over on the wingy forum. Good to see you back and around
  6. That is a possibility Simon, difficult aiming when your bloomers are overflowing Or the LSD Lloyd mentioned....................................................................... This is even blowing Mrs. Grem56's mind. Said this is the most ugly little thing I ever smuggled into the house (of course she never has seen the stash, luckily for me or my a** would be Gr*** )
  7. Hi Lloyd, this is a new MiG set of French armor colors, so not the best of the rest, mind you I don't know what MiG has been smoking before he came up with these colors. The camo is the style used in autumn 1918 to 1919 and referred to as the Japanese scheme according to the encyclopedia entry concerning the FT. I am quite convinced it will look less Disney like when some washes and weathering have been added. The amount of crew space is dreadful, can't imagine how cramped working in that thing must have been. Cheers mate,
  8. 23/7 update. More work on camo, not yet finished. Tracks have been fitted.
  9. 22/7 update. Further progress with "Le Funky French Camo", at the moment looking very cartoonish. Have replaced the plastic suspension springs with home made ones which are a big improvement on the OOB items:
  10. Hi John, it's even scaring me..........................................This is still the first phase though, (Ice cream) factory fresh so to speak. I am guilty though, the combination of this model with those colors was irresistable
  11. Hi Francis, thank you very much mate. Glad to hear the photos are loading faster now, I'll keep these settings. Cheers
  12. cough, cough.............................. Left PB years ago. I use www.slickpic.com nowadays. Just a thought.............................................
  13. Nice project Etienne,
  14. I can imagine the horror when you discovered the drive wheel wouldn't fit properly. You made a nice save though Looking very good.
  15. Fantastic detailing as usual John, great job
