      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. 1/72 Polikarpov I-3 resin kit is back in stock.
  2. I would like to introduce our new product line - assembled and painted 1/48 engines. Le Rhone 9C (80 hp) Clerget 9B (130 hp) Clerget 9Z (110 hp) Gnome Monosoupape 9B-2 (100 hp) Gnome 9 Delta / Oberursel U.I (100 hp) Le Rhone 9J (110 hp) Oberursel Ur.II (110 hp) Gnome 7 Lambda / Oberursel U.0 (80 hp) Gnome 7 Omega (50 hp) Gnome 14 Lambda-Lambda / Oberursel U.III (160 hp) Included tool has the same diameter as the engine. It can be used to test fit the engine into the cowling. Of course, all theese engines are also available as unassembled sets.
  3. 1/72 Polikarpov I-3 resin kit is available for ordering.
  4. Thank you! If everything goes as planned, it will cost $55.
  5. Upper wing and undercarriage assembly jig, struts and other stuff: Test build:
  6. Nose: Fuselage: Transparent sprue: Interior assembly:
  7. Thank you! Another sprue is ready - the lower wing:
  8. Thanks! I'm really bad at estimating release dates. I have another project that I want to finish first, and after that I will try to concentrate on Il-62.
  9. Some progress here (a very, very slow progress). Engine exhaust elements for both early Il-62 NK-8 and Il-62M D-30 engines. The printed parts are removed from supporting structures, cleaned up, their edges are sharpened. Engine intake. The idea is to make inlet guide vanes and compressor first stage fan as separate parts. Compressor fans (3D printed, slightly cleaned-up): Bases for the inlet guide vanes (3D printed). The actual razor-sharp blades are made of thin resin film, multiple copies are created and assembled onto the bases: Inlet guide vanes, copied in resin and removed from the bases: Inlet guide vanes + compressor fans: Thrust reverser grilles of early Il-62 NK-8 engines. 3D-printed part - clearly, not good enough: Lateral slits are cut, then perpendicular cuts are made, the remaining transverse grille lines are sharpened. Strips of white acetate printer film are inserted. The part is copied in resin, the strips are trimmed. Finished part:
  10. My old project which was started more than two years ago has undergone a sort of renaissance recently, and it's finally starting to look like it will actually be released. The subject is the Soviet biplane fighter I-3, developed by Nikolai Polikarpov. It was produced in significant numbers and served in Soviet Air Force for several years in the late 1920s and early 1930s. The model was build using old-fashioned modelling techniques without employing 3D modelling and printing (except for one part). Fuselage. Tail surfaces. Lower wing. Upper wing. One of my first experiments with 3D printing. The quality of the printed parts leaves much to be desired, but I managed to use them anyway. Radiator. Wheels. Other stuff. Sprues (those that are currently completed)

Can be used for the following aircraft: Airco DH5 Ansaldo Baby Avro 504 Bristol M.1 Grigorovich M-20 Hanriot HD.1 KASKR-1 Autogyro Morane-Saulnier I Morane-Saulnier V Nieuport 16 Nieuport 17 Nieuport 23 Nieuport 24 Nieuport 24bis Nieuport 27 Polikarpov U-1 Sopwith 1½ Strutter Sopwith Camel Sopwith Triplane Spad S.A-2 Last 2 sprues are common to all 4 sets.
