      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. Photobucket have stopped me from downloading to third party sites and I will not pay the silly money they are after. Will find something else in time, sorry that you cannot see the pics.
  2. Yep...they got me. I don't think so, will be looking elsewhere. Sorry about that guys.
  3. Sorry Pete I can see the pics and the links worked...obviously FB have stopped them working.
  4. This is my Italeri 1/35 MTB 77 that has been converted to RC. Three brass prob shafts and props with three motors two 300 and one 400 for the central prop. Two speed controllers, a Robbe motor to turn the gun turret. The top is attached by magnets. Si:)
  5. PB was having issues, could not link properly, hopefully you can now see the pics Billy.
  6. Blast, I am having issues in trying to get the images from PB. I can see the pics but obviously you cannot Will try and sort and then edit.
  7. PHOTOBUCKET WAS PLAYING UP, HOPEFULLY IT IS SORTED AND YOU CAN NOW SEE THE PICS I picked up this Hobby Engine RC truck for £5...yep, a fiver, cheapest this is still going for is £65!. It had a few problems so it was a complete strip down. Electrics sorted and the tipper now goes up and down, goes and turns and the lights work. While in bits I primed and repainted, did some chipping and then airbrushed some dirt and added some rust pigment to the tub. Si:)
  8. Thanks Vince, this has been sold for £55, need the room and I won't slap the electronics in it.
  9. UPDATE ON THIS. Tracks painted/weathered. Hull and turret weathered more, numbers etc painted on. Around 90% finished. Si:)
  10. Cheers Vince, I have been working on it this morning, done the cables etc. Tracks are also weathered. Once finished it will sit in the work shed until I decide or need space
  11. Last Christmas my lad got me a second hand King Tiger. I have just got around to looking at it and sorting it. The electrics are a mess and need stripping and resorting, gearboxes kaput. The 2.4 system was dodgy-found a corroded and rusty terminal in the transmitter-sorted this and slapped into my lads Sherman, so something good from the tank. The hatches are all broken...etc. I was getting fed up and wondered weather to just pass on the shell when I thought I would use it as a test bed for colour schemes, camo etc. So, this is what we have now, some weathering and light rusting still to do, then it is decision time to shelve until I can afford the internals or pass on. Si:)
  12. Ta very much, pleased you like the hunk-of-junk I thought the DeAgostini version is already painted?
  13. great idea...know I was going wrong somewhere
  14. Cheers Badder, glad you like it. I have a black background somewhere but could I hell as find it. Figured some daylight shots might show the paintwork better, will try again and find the black cloth
  15. Just completed my second 1/72 Falcon, this one is not as dirty and is in the flight configuration so need to make a stand for her. Hope you enjoy. Si:)
