      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. Thanks for sharing. I met her in Memphis long long time ago when she had been on duty as a gate guard at Memphis National Guard. Jun in Tokyo
  2. The Hawker Hurricane by F. K. Mason and Hurricane by Edward Bishop includes a 3-view of the Hercules Hurricane along with other projects. Jun in Tokyo https://www.flickr.com/photos/horaburo/albums
  3. Aircraft #15 of the decal sheet is Mk.VII BD622, WL-U from the No. 612 Squadron of which photo is appeared on page 220 of the Coastal Support and Special Squadron of the RAF and Their Aircraft by John D. R. Rawlings. The photo confirms that the color profile of the decal sheet is very damn right. Jun in Tokyo https://www.flickr.com/photos/horaburo/albums
  4. Here's a close up shot of the scanner. Other close up photos are available in the Warpaint No.6 and Shackleton at War and Peace. And you can find a sketch of the radome in 28 September 1951 issue of the Flight magazine from Flightglobal at the link below. https://www.flightglobal.com/pdfarchive/view/1951/1951 - 1978.html Jun in Tokyo https://www.flickr.com/photos/horaburo/albums
  5. An old book for an old kit. PLS Hawker Hurricane Classic Aircraft No.4 Their history and how to model them by Bruce Robertson and Gerald Scarborough is a dedicated modelling book for Airfix 1/24 kit builders. This book is still available from Amazon.com https://www.amazon.com/Classic-Aircraft-Their-History-Model/dp/0850591244/ref=sr_1_5?s=books&ie=UTF8&qid=1498318940&sr=1-5&keywords=classic+aircraft+no.4 Jun in Tokyo https://www.flickr.com/photos/horaburo/albums
  6. A shark moused Catalina from Argentina This must be the most unusual markings for the Catalina, actually a Canadian Vickers PBV-1A Canso 0238/2-P-6 (ex RACF 9841) of the Escuadrilla de Patrulleros, Fuerza Aeronaval Argentina, 1953. Here's a link to a flight simu video of 2-P-6. https://warthunder.com/en/news/3213- Jun in Tokyo https://www.flickr.com/photos/horaburo/albums
  7. Not in 1/48th scale, but hope these may be of some help. Jun in Tokyo https://www.flickr.com/photos/horaburo/albums
  8. Here's a photo of full invasion striped Wildcats from No. 846 Squadron aboard HMS Trumpeter (D09). Jun in Tokyo https://www.flickr.com/photos/horaburo/albums
  9. Here are variations of the B-17 upper turret domes. Jun in Tokyo https://www.flickr.com/photos/horaburo/albums
  10. I don't have any decent picture showing the upper surface of the wings, but the upper surface is partially visible in this picture. The wing upper surface were painted in the same irregular camou pattern as that of the fuselage. I'm posting some other color pictures for your reference. Jun in Tokyo https://www.flickr.com/photos/horaburo/albums
  11. The Lindberg kit is Gee Bee R1, race number 11, a winner of 1932 Thompson Trophy Race flown by Jimmy Doolittle. Here is a basic drawing of the R1 with fuselage frame works and cross sections. Hope this is what you are looking for. Jun in Tokyo https://www.flickr.com/photos/horaburo/albums
  12. I checked the book "Air war for Yugoslavia, Greece and Crete" and found a photo of the two captured Ro. 37s with the wings removed. The caption of the photo says that "Greek personnel dismantle two captured Meridionali Ro.37bis aircraft for shipment south from recently-captured Koritza airfield in January 1941. In the background is the crash-landed S.73, 606-7 (ex 1-LODI).", but there was no further information on the fate of these Ro. 37s. I don't think they flew again under control of the RHAF.

  13. Though you don't have an extra interior, this scheme may be attractive. Jun in Tokyo https://www.flickr.com/photos/horaburo/albums
  14. According to ON SPARTAN WINGS, THE ROYAL HELLENIC AIR FORCE IN WORLD WAR TWO, the only Italian-built airplane used by the RHAF was an abandaned SM 79 which collided with three CR 42s in Korce and was repaired by Greeks. Jun in Tokyo https://www.flickr.com/photos/horaburo/albums
  15. The air intakes of the M and Super Fox are wider than those of the F/E as the more powerful engine needs more air. Tommy H. Thomason described this in his blog "Tailhook Topics". http://tailspintopics.blogspot.jp/2011/02/super-fox.html He also posted quite a lot of articles on the A-4 Scooter which may help your project. http://tailspintopics.blogspot.jp/search?q=a4d Jun in Tokyo https://www.flickr.com/photos/horaburo/albums
