      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.

  11. They're available at last (set of two) From her commissioning in 1941 to 16 January 1944, Yamato was equipped with four secondary 155mm triple turrets : - Two on each side of the battleship, without tripod aerial mast. - One on the ship stern with a small non rotating tripod aerial mast. - One just behind the two front main 460mm turrets with a large non rotating aerial mast. Barrels can be fitted with or without blast bags. After her early January 1944 refit, Yamato lost her two side 155mm for more AA guns. Her equipment was: - One 155mm triple turret on the ship axis aft with a small non rotating tripod aerial mast. - One 155mm triple turret just behind the two front main 460mm turrets with a large non rotating aerial mast. Barrels can be fitted with or without blast bags. Includes resin part for 2 turrets, 6 brass guns and photo etch. TWO sets are required for an early Yamato. http://www.larsenal.com/tourelle-155mm-yamato-1-200-x2-c2x21117607 _Bruno
  12. She had been delayed and delayed again but now she’s OUT: 1:700 scale HMS Jamaica http://www.larsenal.com/hms-jamaica-1942-1-700-c2x20975184 209 resin parts 270 photo etched parts 29 brass turned parts Commissioned on June 29th, 1942, HMS Jamaica was the sixth light cruiser of the "Crown Colony" or "Fiji" class of the 1938 Naval Program. The Colony was the larger wartime class of light cruisers. Eleven ships were commissioned between 1940 and 1943. The Colony was a more compact and lighter design following the "Town" class prewar cruisers. HMS Jamaica spent most of her eventful career in Arctic convoy protection between Iceland and Murmansk. Convoy PQ18 (1942), detached to cover Operation of the Barents Sea (1942), a refit in Portsmouth (Summer of 1943), Arctic convoys RA 54B, JW 54A, JW 54B and JW 55A. The Battle of North Cape (1943) when she operated with HMS Duke of York against the battleship Scharnhorst, finally firing torpedoes to finish the German ship. Arctic convoys JW57, JW58 and RA58. Operation Tungsten against the Tirpitz (July, 1944), Carried King George VI to the Channel Islands. (June, 1945). Transferred to Colombo (Ceylon) in 1945, refitted at Devonport in 1947, West Indies (1948) and Hong Kong (1949). She took part in the Korean War (1950-1952) and sailed back to the Mediterranean Fleet (1955-56) including the Suez Crisis and playing the role of HMS Exeter in the movie "The Battle of the River Plate". She was decommissioned and broken up in 1960. The kit depicts HMS Jamaica as during the Battle of the Barents Sea which took place on December 31st, 1942. During this night she sailed with cruiser HMS Sheffield and intercepted a German force which was attacking the convoy JW 51B north of the North Cape. The German destroyer Friedrich Eckholdt was sunk and the heavy cruiser Hipper damaged. This battle bring a critical outcome for the rest of the war, as following this failure on his operation Hitler almost decided to scrap his surface fleet and concentrate on submarine warfare and led to the resigning of admiral Raeder. _Bruno
