      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. Yup, great service from them. My Su-17 arrived yesterday.
  2. Something rather interesting turned up today!
  3. Lovely build, looks very sharp sat on the base!
  4. It's going to be close with my build. Got the paint work finished last week and will varnish it today. Here's hoping to get the decals done by the end of next week and then it will be the finishing touches!
  5. Stunning model, the finish you have achieved is superb.
  6. If anyone is interested, I've got an AT-AT up for grabs here!
  7. I'm looking forward to seeing how this comes together, she's looking very promising in her constituent parts already.
  8. You've really made the detail in the gear bays *pop*. Cracking stuff.
  9. Thanks for the kind comments guys. I've made a little more progress, she is all primed now and there's just a few spots of remedial work required. Hopefully get that done tomorrow. Unfortunately while I was away at the Le Mans 24h I got some less than ideal news which might but the brakes on this build a little, I'll endeavour to finish it by the deadline, but that doesn't look likely now.
  10. She's looking fantastic Ian, coming along really nicely. I think you've done a fine job with the cockpit details. R
  11. That's a cracking build. The splash of colour really makes it pop and the subtle chipping brings her to life. Love it!
  12. Just another quick update. I've buttoned up the fuselage. There are some pretty horrific gaps to deal with, but I'm going to let the glue cure before I get stuck in.
  13. Finally a proper update! I've completed the cockpit and nose section and I'm currently working on the fuselage. Unfortunately where the fuselage, intakes, and cockpit meet there are some rather unsightly gaps that will need attended to. Other than that this has been an enjoyable build so far, hoping to get the whole fuselage buttoned up by the end of the day.
  14. Appearing in stock in the UK... https://www.emodels.co.uk/hobbyboss-1-48-sukoi-su-17m4-fitter-k-81758.html
