      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. Shame the snow camo would have been my choice as well
  2. Nicely done, looks good along your other completed aircraft
  3. Looks like a nice project, which colour scheme will you go for?
  4. Two very nice models, the Hurricane is nice to see in another scheme than usual.
  5. A bit more progress, the leading edge stripes are good on the upper edges but he lower side is less convincing, may have to correct.. IMGA0952 by neil Connor, on Flickr IMGA0951 by neil Connor, on Flickr IMGA0950 by neil Connor, on Flickr IMGA0949 by neil Connor, on Flickr IMGA0948 by neil Connor, on Flickr
  6. Update. Upper surfaces painted, and now masked. The Brengun flaps have been positioned as the few photos I found show of a Typhoon with flaps lowered. IMGA0943 by neil Connor, on Flickr IMGA0944 by neil Connor, on Flickr IMGA0945 by neil Connor, on Flickr IMGA0946 by neil Connor, on Flickr IMGA0947 by neil Connor, on Flickr The Brengun etch has ribs for the underside of the wing above the flaps but in the few picture of flaps down that I found it appears not to have exposed ribs.
  7. The kit is the later Airfix release, 2016 I believe. The PE is the Brengun set.
  8. 11, 14, 18, 28 and 30 for the V's
  9. Another one to watch, what's the projected wingspan?
  10. Impressive work as always
  11. A few more pictures now uploaded IMGA0942 by neil Connor, on Flickr Quick Boost resin exhausts IMGA0940 by neil Connor, on Flickr Brengun flaps, size is apparent on Tamiya 15ml paint pot IMGA0939 by neil Connor, on Flickr IMGA0938 by neil Connor, on Flickr IMGA0937 by neil Connor, on Flickr Decided to paint the leading edge yellow stripe rather than use the decal, and the flap sections need a fair bit of work to get right
  12. Next one to be built is this, the Airfix Hawker Typhoon. Will be using the kit decal as I thought the kit ones supplied with my Spitfire went on fairly well, but will be using the Brengun photo etch for cockpit and flaps, Master barrel set, Aviaeology stencil data decals, quick boost resin exhaust and Aires resin tail plains and wheels IMGA0931 by neil Connor, on Flickr Yay figured out Flickr IMGA0930 by neil Connor, on Flickr IMGA0932 by neil Connor, on Flickr IMGA0933 by neil Connor, on Flickr That's all the pictures I had taken before the photobucket situation started, needless to say its now at the start of the painting process.
  13. A good looking start, will be an attractive scheme when done. Scheme no5 looks interesting as well.
  14. Will watch with interest as I have just bought this one as well.
  15. Interesting aircraft, more info please
