      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. Star Wars

    and in classic revell form....they have kept up with their time honnoured actions of making kits with lots of errors in ie the ones in the film have 4 toes not 3 and the ones in the film ...the side panels are a dull yell not bright orange
  2. theres a model shop in bham , Ian Allan books and models , down by New St station..I asked a guy there if IA had thought about buying the MZ name..he said no..because IA would have to buy MZs debts too...i also go to Mike`s Models Brockwell Rd Kingstanding Birmingham ...thats out of the way a bit ,,but its a good shop...see their web site
  3. i said to the supervisor..didnt Smiths see this coming ...i could have told her months ago..that MZ would go bust soon... its badly promoted by WHSmiths...no mention of MZ on Smiths website...no mention of it on any of their FB pages/...its like MZ never existed
  4. the only good thing is that in the bham branch there is a buy one get one free on the revell stuff...but theres not much revell stuff left...so might get some revell paint before it all goes
  5. i said too the supervisor that the Falcon model was £60 but had recently gone up to £72...i told her that in reality it was only worth £20 or so....£72 for a model full of errors ..even more errors than the previous Revell Falcon , was MZ taking the piddle
  6. modelzone was bought by smiths last year...i spoke to a supervisor last week , she said Smiths bought the MZ name as an experiment..but Smiths say that they had to rely on their suppliers giving them virtually no stock...so of course it failed...the MZ in the Birmingham Union St branch of Smiths has been shrinking...There were badly photocopied signs that appeared mid jan saying as of end of jan , MZ ceases trading in Smiths...After the end of Jan , MZ was still there , but shrinking ....as of last week , MZ has virtually gone
  7. in WHSmiths / Modelzone in birmingham ...it was £60 but couple months ag it went up to £72...but modelzone has gone bust again...
  8. i saw them in a model shop last week...there was an x wing as well...but none of the scales matched...now theres another surprise NOT
  9. have you seen the new revell kits...theyve done a slave 1 too...but they are all funny scales again , think slave 1 was 1/90th
  10. its £60 in WHSMITHS and Ian Allan ...I bought the original version half price for £20 in modelzone...im trying to win love2shop vouchers in competitions ...im good at winning competitions
  11. and its not a case of the wrong decal sheet being put in wrong box . all 3 decal sheets are marked with the name of the model its supposed to fit
  12. I have the TIE fighter , Darths TIE , and TIE interceptor , ive just measured all 3 decals and they are 17mm across...where as the one that you need to be able to fit the TIE, would need to be about 23mm to fit...ive just measured the TIE window size on the model , and it would need to be at least 23mm to fit
  13. if you look at Darths TIE its 1/121 , but the TIE fighter is 1/110...so the window decal in the TIE is not going to fit..its too small
  14. ive got theTIE fighter and Darths TIE , models are different scales yet the window decals are both the smaller of the 2 sizes, so the window decal is too small for the TIE fighter
  15. my question was more aimed at Root Admin ...His pack shows the unpainted version with the different sized models yet with same sized window decals.. How does a small window decal fit a larger model
