      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. Wow! That is very nice! For a mash up of decals you have made it look very convincing, looking at the pictures I would have thought that it was from an A310 decal sheet. You've done a grand job there, ever thought about making it a bit grubby? (Not a critizism at all by the way, just a pure question, so you don't have to answer if you don't want to)
  2. Thank you! Pinky coffeeboat - yes made a start on my first heavy, the Revell A330 Airbus house markings boxing. Doing an Air Inter one using Flightpaths decals, and the Thai Airways sheet from my other A330 kit for the windows and details, as neither the Airbus House or Air Inter sheets have windows (and not much detailing on the Airbus house one either) Going to start selling an early built model soon, time to move some older stuff on to clear space for the new builds
  3. Hello all, Having completed the Air Baltic Avro, I have finally got round to finishing my Iberia One World A320. The kit is the Revell A320 (The Edelweiss boxing) which I recall picking up at the local toy shop, and managed to haggle a lower price for it too (Can't remember how much) but the kit itself was alright, the usual filler was required but that was only around the fuselage join, not much problems elsewhere it terms of fitting. Only problem was every part suffered flash, and there was a few pieces that suffered quite badly, not an issue obviously as it comes off easy, just delays the process a bit. Spraying was easy, white coat was all that was needed for the body, though I manage to accidentally get some green paint down the front side, so had to tidy and re-spray that bit, which set it back again. Lesson learnt, keep wet brushes and open paint pots well away from the model! The One World, windows, doors and Iberia related decals are from Classic-Airlines, and are lovely to work with. The rest are from the stock Edelweiss decal sheet. Thanks for looking! James.
  4. You've done a goid job there, that blue is fantastic! Having seen plenty of these at Amsterdam there would be one thing I'd do, dry-brush around the front/back, nothing excessive, just adds a tad bit of weathering. Only a tip/idea by the way, I'm not telling you what to do
  5. Well you did a much better job than I could do, looks fantastic!! I hope to get the new MD-11 someday, will you be doing one, either Civil or Cargo?
  6. I can vouch for Ebay seller Kosciuv Found the Giodecals BA 757 Blue Peter special on his Ebay site, decided to trust the 100% feedback, paid the price plus postage to UK, and they landed through the letterbox no more than a week later, recommended seller
  7. Hello all, A very big long shot but someone out there just may have the answer! Could someone suggest any rattle can paint matches of either Tamiya or Halfords spray's please? No mixing paints, nothing that requires a spray gun (I don't have one and not investing in one), just a simple suggestion for rattle can sprays please. Doesn't have to be 100% of course, anything very close is appreciated (I.E looks like Etihad, not EasyJet ) Any help is much appreciated!! Cheers James.
  8. Hello all, It's taken many month's for me to complete my BAe 146 model, problems having time to spray it was one thing, but some other problems came about through it's whole process. Originally this was for the group build. I picked up the Revell BAe 146 TNT kit at the Yeovilton model show with the plan to use the supplied TNT decals. It was then pointed out to me that the TNT decals are for the 146-200, and having looked up their fleet, they only had -200's and -300's. I then put it aside to await other decal's, and then sometime later fumbling through my decal book I found some Air Baltic RJ70 decal's! I then ordered the DACO BAe 146/Avro RJ stenciling set and made it into Air Baltic's RJ70 YL-BAL It was slightly tricky, the only real major problem was the wheels, it wasn't right until the end that I found I had knackered the undercarriage, it wasn't straight and made putting the wheel's in very difficult. In the end it was decided to shove the carriage door's on in the closed position, cut a hole and stick it on a spare Airfix stand, and it works perfectly, and can be displayed banking left or right, perfect! The Air Baltic decals are from Flightpath, yes I know when I built the EasyJet 737-200 I recall saying on here that I'll never use Flight Path again. Yes I had some trouble with these, not as much as last time though, I've learnt that lot's of water and being EXTREMELY careful does work, but being extremely careful isn't always easy, they fold the moment your concentration drops for a nanosecond. Would I use them again? I probably would actually because they do some different and classic stuff that usually you can't find elsewhere. And I can only pick the decal's up at show's as they are hard to come by secondhand online. Anyway here is the final outcome: DSC_0040 DSC_0037 DSC_0035 DSC_0034 DSC_0032 Thanks for looking
  9. That is a point though, same as if I was to visit the STEAM museum in Swindon, I'd go on a non-event day otherwise I wouldn't want to pay full price and not get to see the exhibit's clearly, but then I suppose people can check the FAA site to see what events are on and not go if the model show isn't on. So what about the Wedding Exhibition in October 2017/2018 at the FAA, Is that in the halls? Will that also spoil the exhibits or will it not matter because it's not a model show?
  10. Oops sorry, yes it was Mr Models that used to be there sorry Little-Cars. Not sure if Little-cars space will be there, if they are binning the sim for another display, what amount of space will it take? That's assuming it's gone by Feburary of course
  11. Slightly off topic but in regards to the museum are they having a shift around? I noticed the Flight Simulator is closed for good and will be removed, but I understand there is to be a new exhibit and a change around for next year? Not sure whether it's to do with some of the restoration works going on, but at the show I noticed a Helicopter filled in the space where Little-Car's used to be
  12. I heard it from several people at the show. Somebody also said that's it's maybe moving to Portsmouth...? Meanwhile, junglierating, I don't get what you're on about (crabs? hysterical dockyard? plumber?....)
  13. If you do Feburary that will be your last chance, show scrapped after Feb, then thats the end of the Yeovilton show. Very spacious today, not much traders or stands and I think the final show may be quiet, we aren't displaying on the last show and I suspect some others arent going to. Even noticed today that even the 'home' display with Navy/Yeovilton related models aren't even displaying
  14. Blimey, looking good so far! Love the additional bit's you got too, a fair bit of brass in that pack!
  15. POTKC - Thanks, you say superior but I've yet to build it, I could screw it up! And I'm no pro so don't expect a 10 out of 10 (just 9 1/2 out of 10 ) I've got two 737 kits left (Minicraft & Skyline -400's) and five 737 decal sheets (technically 8 as I have a sheet with more than one on)
