      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. OK, Finally back at the table, the Porsche is finished and it is time to get on with this Caddy. Spent some more time doing some simple measuring and test fitting and now at the point I can start getting some paint on. So only a little update, here are the first load of primed parts that will be getting treated to some colour. I think the engine and engine bay are going to take up a lot of my time on this build. The body will be getting its primer either later this week or early next week. Just need to figure out the tail gate opening and closing method. This TransKit has no direction at all so I hope to document this build well enough that it may help some one in the future as I haven't found much guidance on the web. Thanks for stopping by. Coops
  2. Thank you. I'm pleased with how it turned out. The most decals I have put on one model!
  3. Cheers Alpha Delta 210, the background model is a Hakosuka Works Skyline
  4. Ok, So after a long pause, here is the finished build. For those interested the build is here. Thanks for looking in and I welcome any criticisms and comments. Coops
  5. OK, Long time since any updates, modelling got out in hold with the arrival of a puppy and newborn. Then work got crazy busy, but finally found the time and energy to get to the bench. painted and fitted the last few bits and here is the progression of the build. and the finished product.... In the RFI area a few more angles of the finished build. Those who hung in there over this long break, I thank you. Third model now finished and now its time to get on with the Caddy. Thanks for looking in, Coops
  6. Halfords Clear In a rattle can. Will give it another coat after the decals are finished. Thanks for the positive comments coops
  7. Ok, so work has been taking up too much of my time. Have found some time to get at the bench, and the decals are nearly done, about 98% of the way finished with them. Here's a couple of pictures just to keep you up to date with what is turning out to be a slow burner of a build. Cheers as usual for taking the time to look in on the build. Coops
  8. No proper engine in the kit, kit was built OOB. Its a liberty walk hakosukaworks, there are others available like the kenmary works etc. Jeff, I agree a fantastic car and maybe I will do the classic look one day but I bought this kit as it was something different. First car kit I built was the R34, built that as a classic build. Hiroboy lists them them but not in stock, I got my kit through Amazon, but I believe they come up on eBay. thanks for the comments, Coops
  9. Ok, another length of time at the bench with the decals. Another little update for you guys, the decals still have micro sol being used on them, so just bear that in mind. Rear End Front End Cheers for looking in Coops
  10. This is something you definitely don't see often, I applaud your efforts and will watch this to see how it progresses. I doff my hat to you. Coops
  11. Nice work on the engine, I like it 👍🏼 This should be a good build
  12. Ok, nice to see a new viewer @loloskymaster So I spent lunchtime today painting the extra trim in semi-gloss black, first time I have managed to get the consistency right so it doesn't block up the airbrush. Then this evening I have spent some time starting on the decals. This build is not for the decal shy modeller, I'll tell you. I have stopped for the evening as I couldn't face another decal.......that along with putting the wrong end of the micro sol cotton bud in my mouth. I do not advise this practice, it tastes foul any how, I'll treat you to a little progress update. Front view Rear View Cheers for taking the time to look in on the build. Coops
  13. Ok, so the clear coat had set touch dry so I finished off a couple of bits and have primed the remaining trim pieces. Thanks for checking in with the build. Should be finished next week with any luck. Coops
  14. Thought I had posted this build up, but somewhere I got sidetracked and never posted it, so here it is. My third built car kit. Comments are welcomed, I would do things differently, for example clear coating and what not, but pleased overall with the outcome. Cheers for looking. Coops
  15. After a busy Christmas, and some time away from the bench, managed to get in a couple of hours this evening. So the clear coat dried beautifully whilst I was away from the bench. Have spent the evening painting the black bumper trims front and rear, along with the side sills. All the window surrounds have had their black coat and the interior roof lining. The clear indicator up front have had translucent orange painted on, and the rear light strip has been painted. Also done on the body has been the silver behind the light clears. The body has also had another clear coat for all the trims etc, ready to get some decals applied, however I think I was a little premature as it looks the the black in the roof lining may have a couple of runs. So I will give it till next week under wraps to Harden off nicely and then update with some pictures. In the mean time I plan to get all the last lot of black pieces of trim (spoiler, grilles, mirrors etc) primed and black painted. Ready to clear coat when the shell comes out. And then its decal time so look forward to some pictures next Monday hopefully. Cheers for dropping in, Coops
