      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. Hi Manfred, just a quick aside... is that Schumacher's Ferrari I see next to your computer monitor? I have a kit of his F1-2000 still to build, from the year he clinched the title in Japan on the last race of the season... I already made the figure of Michael with the decals from 2000. Not quite on the same level as your NASA research, but quite painstaking nonetheless. Back on topic... the SSWS looks great and the back wall does look very nice.
  2. Great teamwork. Thank goodness that NASA liked to photograph everything!
  3. Fantastic enginuity. It always seems that the first try exceeds my expectations, yet you strive for something more precise every time. That will make this build the best ever...
  4. I think the four tiny wires would be too much, and it's a step too far for normal viewing distance. But I also know the foil solution would not be pleasing, even in your mind's eye. I think it has to be all or nothing... 0.1mm wire or move on to a new challenge.
  5. Again, we are the limit of visible with your magnificent endeavour. Have you been tearing your hair out in frustration? I hope you have plenty left! But seriously, the research is thorough and painstaking and your knowledge of what these details actually are is impressive.
  6. Wow. Once again your attention to detail and thorough research is exemplary, and your determination is steadfast. I am full of admiration because I thought I was one to make things the right way, but you surpass even my wildest ambitions once again.
  7. Wonderful work. Congratulations on finishing this chapter. For the tiles, I used the aftermarket decals and I think they look great. But John_W's idea wouldn't surprise me too much if you were to adopt that more detailed approach
  8. You're right Kirk. The one I was thinking of is the Woodland Scenics "Realistic Water" that I've used for model railways at 1/148 scale. It is neat because you can mould it as it sets and make pretty realistic waves or boat wakes, or even make a waterfall with it (not that I've done that, but I've seen it done). But I was happy that the idea had amused Manfred. It's probably not right for Manfred though as it comes in a 500mL bottle for €15 and these water bags would use 0.5mL!!! It could be hard to apply to such a tiny gap, too. In some shots at the 12":1ft scale that Manfred has posted, the water has ripples that I thought could be modeled with this stuff, but I think Manfred's idea with mottling the paint and adding a shiny layer of varnish will also work well.
  9. I was thinking that... all that work on the big pipe outlet! Hidden! Good idea. I am still curious how you will represent the water...
