      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.

  9. A small update on this one....

Still to finish the kit rear door and add steps to mine then on to make the 'open' sides for mine and the kit..... More to follow..... ATB Sean
  10. Trying to clear the back log of shelf queens and these 2 Opel Blitz are part of that effort.... One early cab set in the Eastern Front and a Late box cab set on the Western Front..... Progress so far..... More to follow..... ATB Sean
  11. Yes Ian there is, Although I have been slightly ddistracted by illness and by the Albion CX22 and 7.2 howitzer, see my other thread, and 2 more trucks, yet to be put in a thread..... The QL has been completed and was used as the basis for my 145 radio truck, the master has been sent for manufacture, Ian is currently casting the back orders for the QLT and D before he builds up a stock for general release, the WOT6 I have finished the master and made my own moulds and have started the masters for a back body of a machinery truck, of coarse it then means I have to master all of the machines that will then reside in the back, so its a fairly major project. I apologies, I really should put some time aside to up date my threads on a more regular basis, I forget people are genuinely interested in their progress..... Must try harder on my report card I fear.... ATB Sean
