      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.

  5. Thx Ken , I know all yours subs since yours 1/700 models . I used different black : Lifecolor UA 735 for Soviet's subs , mixed X-18 & XF-69 for US subs etc etc . for RN subs Ok for black but which nuance black ? Vanguard class have different nuance and like all the subs , black is different depending the light Pierre
  6. Thx for comments For the weathering : After paint and decals I put a layer of Klir (a product to wash the ground but in fact an acrylic vanish).Masking up the water line .Now you must choose the level of weathering .If I want a very hard weathering the first step I apply with a sponge light brown (XF-55 for example) .Now the weathering: in first the pigments (different white , grey).If I want some green I use Mig product effects slimy grime dark or slimy grime light or both.Before Mig's product drying I apply an enamel wash (Humbrol light grey with lot of white spirit (90 - 95 %). Important : pigments , green , wash must be apply ALWAYS up to down and do not be afraid to run the wash on the hull , it take yours pigments & Migs product to down The last step is a matt vanish for fix . Some examples Light weathering (just pigments & wash) on SSN23 Jimmy Carter A little more SSN 723 Oklahoma City (Pigments - Migs effect - wash) Hard weathering SSN 688 Los Angeles (XF 55 with sponge - Pigments - Migs light & dark - wash): I think open a Topic when i'll start my next range : 4 English subs (2 SSN /Astute & Trafalgar and 2 SSBN /Resolution & Vanguard) I need some help with the colours Pierre
