      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. Cheers guys, i trying to plan out the work shop/lab but it not going well so have put all the parts in a box and im going to have a go at painting a few figures, not something i have done very much of and i printed out a few Zeon banners for the lab once it has some walls. I was going to say im very surprised at the amout of flash on these Tamiya figures, i will do some pictures later.
  2. Holy cr@p that a big light really make you appreciate how big that thing is.
  3. The 1/35 Tamiya figure looks ok next to the head.
  4. Looking Good! Great colour combo.
  5. I thought is was about time this got another bump in an attempt for you to start work on it again.
  6. Not sure were to post this so I will stick it here: Not actually revived it at the yet but wanted to give you a heads up, I phoned ( and acutely spoke to a human) WWS about some ABS STYRENE PLASTIC rods and tubes they have on there web site, I wasn't after a large pack of one type that they have advertised on the web sit, so they are putting together a variety pack for me (2 of each they have in stock). Just really nice bloke and happy to help, I would give them a ring if your in need of some styrene rod before they put the price up..... http://www.war-world.co.uk/index.php/scenery-abs_styrene_plastic_range/?k=33624:58:::39 They also have a half decent range of Vallejo paints etc at a good price as well.
  7. Looking very nice, I bet he is going to look totally amazing once you have worked you painting magic on him.
  8. Thanks a lot Will, I use a lot of your work as references so thanks. The nameplate is just printed paper, glued on with PVA and glossed over, I was going to keep the nameplate gloss but ended up getting some paint on it some it finished up weathered as well.
  9. Thats nice.
  10. Making a start on the mount for the head dio, need to order a load of plastic rod etc, let the real scratch building start.......
  11. So i have orded a tamiya set of 1/35 figures and if they dont look write i will just have to order 1/35 half track...but anyway im thinking about the Zaku head dio and i like the idea of a zaku head test bed/lab, lot of box's cables computers etc. So on that theam the head will get lots of cable's dangling out the under
  12. Cheers. Wired in a resister and sorted out were to stuff the wires, looks better now. I still need to order some new decals for it so it will probably it like this now for a week or two.
  13. A pain ship not sure about a plague. Did some painting on the mk II shell and looking to fit the LED. Might need a resister for it, its an led i fulled out of somthing at some point so not sure what its rated as, anyway very happy with it so far
  14. Hi all just after a bit of advice really, on 1/35 crew figures and there sizes. I now know that not all kit figures are the same size but are there any that you know of that come up small? Tamiya for instance or the Dragon Panzer crew? Thanks Brian.
  15. Ok I have some Math for you all to check. Now don’t run off just yet is Gundam based around working out the scale of the Exceed Zaku heads so I can get some figures to fit a dio for one or two of them. So here we go…..I have worked out by looking at pictures and models that a 12.5 Zaku heads fit into the total hight of a Zaku II, so if I multiply the size of my Exceed head ( 4.3cm) by 12.5 I will get the total size of an Exceed Zaku if I built one ( 4.3X12.5 = 53.75 cm). (Now that would be a very cool thing to see. No No stop that!) A full size Zaku is 18m tall so my head is just about 1/35 scale ( 53.75X18=1887.25) So a Zaku`s head is the same height as a man, yes? What do you think?
