      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. These arrived late last week: I picked this up from the LHS today while getting the car serviced: Carl
  2. Gunze makes a product called Mr Metal Primer. I believe it has some etching properties to it. It's clear but when i use it, I can see a change in the finish of the metal. Maybe give that a try? Carl
  3. If you want the stock PCM decals, I have a spare set as I won't be using them. They're yours for the postage. Carl
  4. Revell USA had a DC2 Integra with the round headlights. You might be able to kit bash the two together. http://www3.towerhobbies.com/cgi-bin/wti0001p?&I=LXERME&P=W Carl
  5. The Ruf Yellowbird was built from a non-turbo Carrera 911. You can see in your pic that it doesn't have the large rear fender flares that any of the Turbos have. The 964 was the 911 replacement and had a different chassis, bumpers, mirrors and interior. I would start with any of the Fujimi Enthusiast Model (EM series) kits. They're a bit fiddly to build. The kit you linked to is based off that series so if you can find the narrowbody Carrera, that would be a great starting point too. It's been a while since I've looked at one of those but it should also have the correct Carrera rear spoiler for the Yellowbird. Hope that helps Carl
  6. I got this in the mail at the end of last month. I'm now just starting to collect all the paint colours needed for it. Carl
  7. I would recommend any of the Asuka/Tasca Shermans. They have great detail, go together well and from my understanding are the most accurate ones out there. Carl
  8. I've been to their store which is near where my in-laws live. They have a great collection of memorabilia, art, and models. The guys there are great to just chat with as well. Carl
  9. Lifelike have the following decal sheet available: I'm currently in the process of building TD248. Hope that helps. Carl
  10. Tamiya includes stands with all their recent 1/32 single seat fighters. I have several spares if you want one. There's also this one which I have from HLJ: http://hlj.com/product/LFTFP-600 The nice thing about it is it's adjustable and your model isn't permanently attached to it. Carl
  11. There was a limited release of DVD and Blu-ray copies under Star Blazers 2199. Although not dubbed, they were subtitled and region free. For some reason, they didn't finish releasing the entire series. As for the Cosmo Pulsar fighter sketches, they're from Yamato 2220 and not the upcoming second season which is called SBY 2202. If you can find a copy of Hyperweapon 2009, there's a multipage article on the Cosmo Pulsar as well as the Cosmo Zero 2220. Carl
  12. Thanks everyone! I really appreciate the comments. I primarily build in 32nd scale so that was the easy part. The rigging didn't go as bad as I thought but it was definitely hit and miss initally in getting them to stay anchored. Part of the learning process I guess. I've picked up another WNW my so I guess this won't be my last biplane. But first I need to clear the bench of a couple Spitfires. Carl
  13. Thanks everyone! The Corsair is my favorite plane so I'll be building a couple more of these in the future. In the meantime, I have a bunch of Spitfires to get through. Carl
  14. I just picked up a pair of older Honda kits: I have the RC version of the CR-X, also by Tamiya and the NSX is a do over for me. My first try was when the kit first came out and it's mostly decals for the "paint work". Carl
  15. Nice Corsair! I just finished a VMF-213 Birdcage too but in 1/32 scale. It's definitely a challenge getting through weathering just right. Carl
