      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. I've built this kit twice now, and if you'd ever like any help, advice, input I'd be happy to help. I thought its one of Trumpeter's best engineered kits with really good fit overall. When attaching the wings to the fuselage make sure you've got everything prepped because it "clicks" into place and removing it can be hard! Also be sure to paint the main gear wells white before attaching them to the fuselage. Nice work so far, I'd recommend AOA decals if you're so inclined.
  2. Beautiful plane, Marseilles was quite the character, I read a bit about him a ways back. Anyhow, very nicely done!
  3. Enjoy! This is a really great kit from Trumpeter, I just had some fit issues with the cowling but that might have been my mistake and not the kits. It was really a lot of fun to build.
  4. Bloody nice job mate, that's how the Brits would say it, right? Amazing!
  5. Beautiful metallic finish, one of the most realistic I've seen. What kind of metallic paints/technique did you use for it?
  6. Beautiful paint job, I've struggled with a similar issues in weathering. What I sometimes do, is place it on a shelf or something similar where its likely to sit and look at it from a far. Sometimes a little extra weathering might seem to be a bit much but when you stand back it "balances itself out" Either way terrific paint job, your technique keeps it "interesting to the eye" rather than so monotone.
  7. Stunning work with the airbrush, i'm inspired to do another one of these beautiful aircraft
  8. Here's a link to a guy who did a really nice job on a Have Glass F-16 and he even explains in detail how he did it. http://www.zone-five.net/showthread.php?t=10619
  9. I've heard really great things about this kit, I'd like to try it or wait for the 1/48th Mig-25 thats coming out. From what I hear, if there was ever a company to do a 1/32 Su-34 Fullback its AMK!!!
  10. You can't even tell is a model in those natural light photos!!!!! And its an NMF!!!!! Thats strong work there, would you talk a little about how you did the painting/finish?
  11. Any chance you happen to have more photos of "Red 01?" They are few and far between....and it would be a big referential help
  12. Gregax, do you happen to have any more photos of that particular Flanker, "Red 01?"
