      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. Sorry Jim I can't be perfect at everything!
  2. I had free 3rd party hosting with PB for over 5 years, giving me 2.0GB of space, I'd used just 0.62GB so they virtualy cut me off no prior warning/timescale. So they wanted $399 per year. Went to Fotki $120 for 3 years with 3rd party hosting!
  3. Cheers Arachnid.
  4. I put this in this section as it can be seen as military. Another of my cheapy ebay 'already started' kits. As it came with 4 sets of USA and other military decals, I thought it a good idea....
  5. Superb Shaun, my favourite car the 911, both on the road and on the track. I recently tested a GT3 version on a private track, very difficult to get in and out with the rollcage and with no interior trim it was a shade loud, but great fun.
  6. Superb builds, well done Sabrejet. I had a time when I built a few Nascar and WRC rally cars with challenging decal sets, but very satisfying when finished!
  7. Thanks again celt, yes having been to the race a couple of times it features higher than F1, although I was a marshall at Silverstone for nearly 30 years and saw a few F1 races, but the '70's gave us the Ford GT40 and Lola T70 with huge V8's alongside the yellow works McLaren M8B with a similar motor, then big Porsches later and the hybrids now, superb fun! I had to wear ear defenders for my airfield work and the track work as well!
  8. Thanks Shaun. Yes I had to wait for the decals from Hiroboy for nearly 6 months! But with my first one I made camo decals as no other race ones were available.
  9. Thanks celt, yes I love decals!
  10. Just a Snap Kit and has full cockpit,seat, roll cage,full dashboard and decals for all gauges, steering wheel and seat belts. Oh and an interesting addition all widow detail decals on the inside! Comparison two Le Mans cars from 1989 and 2013...............
  11. This was bought through ebay UK in a Fujimi Pacific Racing kit, But with no decals as per the box art. I't was already started, in that most of the parts were off the sprues, but none of it was built. I bought Colorado decal sheet for the ART Racing Team. The main bonnet decal was a different shape, so I scanned and printed a second set and cut the decals to fit.
  12. Superb! I remember that marque of Jaguar testing at Silverstone just 5 miles from here in the day.
  13. Cheers Billydick. Transferred by Fotki! Photobucket tried to sell me more space when of my'Free 2.1GB and I've only used 0.6GB
  14. Landed today from Ebay UK.......
  15. Thanks guys, yes the old 'Tin Snail' is loved by all, that enjoy quirky!
