      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. I wonder if you could fill the inside with an expanding foam to support it.not sure if it would react with the plastic though.I remember a review in a modelling mag in the dim distant past of just such a product,no idea if it took off though.
  2. Thankyou Chris ,I appreciate all your efforts chaps ☺ Neil
  3. That's an interesting looking book there Tim.would you recommend it? Neil
  4. Awsome ,thanks Tim,😊
  5. Thanks jure,it looks like maybe they were discontinued part way through the batch.
  6. Thankyou mate ,I would appreciate that☺.
  7. Evening fellow modellers,need some info about Hawker Tempests so I thought I would start this thread,maybe it can expand for any other queries about this aircraft. To start the ball rolling,my question is about the MkV series 1 airframe.I have read that these aircraft had the reinforcing plates on the tail join in the same way as the Typhoon,I was wondering if all of this batch had them.As far as I am aware the series 1 airframes had the extended cannon fairings too,so if the fairings are present,do they have the reinforcing.Its hard to tell from photos, Many thanks for looking Neil
  8. I have got to say that is a stunning Tempest.i love it.
  9. Thanks Armando,I think the locating pins for the pylons will need to be replaced with brass rod when I do mine,or at least small pins.
  10. Just a feasibility query really,I was thinking along the lines of some sort of connecting link to tie the individual pylons together on each wing,but whether each wing could be linked together is another thing entirely. Just curious,my mind goes of tangents like this sometimes lol
  11. Hi everyone,I was digging around in the stash over the weekend and I came across an old Airfix Tornado GR1,a clunky old kit as you all probably know.Well I was looking at it and Its wing sweep mechanism and it got me wondering about the pylons,has anyone built a Tornado with working swing wings and pylons that pivot correctly with the sweep.What do you guys n gals recon,doable?
  12. How about a DHC Chipmunk
  13. I remember that book,it was indeed a good read if rather improbable lol
  14. Beautiful,that's all I can say.
  15. It's the mk14 in far east theatre markings I think.
