      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. That looks superb! She looked great as individual components, but now she's a stunner! Love it! Geoff
  2. Never a truer word spoken! I know I'll pick her up again at some point but for now I just need a couple of simple builds to keep the mojo flowing. Again great work and I do like the clean painwork. Geoff
  3. That's a really really good finish on what can be a messy kit. I've the Vb version sitting on the shelf of doom and I'm not sure if I'll keep going on it. It would help if the two fuselage half's were the same size! Geoff
  4. It's looking more and more realistic all the time! Great stuff. Don't think it's over done at all, and any final weathering or washes will blend them in and tone it down some. Can't wait for more!
  5. The Revell kit may have been released in the US under Monogram, and the instructions show that the hull splits down the centre line left and right. Can't see any other kits fitting the time line for you. Could be a cheap fun kit to build, with the added nostalgic touch to it? Geoff
  6. Great choice for your first ship. Popcorn and beer at the ready for this! Watching with interest to see how the aftermarket bits improve her. Geoff
  7. That looks excellent! Really like the look of the model and your work is spot on. Rigging! Geoff
  8. Hi Dennis, Ironshipwrights.com list a Hunt Type 2 HMS Middleton in 1/350. It's a resin kit priced at $90 with photoetch, made by Accurate Image Models. I don't think there's any 1/350 plastic kits out there, although several in 1/700, the IBG one's a great little kit. Hope this helps Geoff
  9. Very nicely done! And a great little pen story to boot! Really good rigging on such a small kit as well. Good job. Geoff
  10. I'd go with a dusty wash, in that kind of environment it would gravitate to an oily surface and alter the look, wouldn't it? Or at least bits of it. Love the way this is coming along. Watching avidly. Geoff
  11. Excellent work! The rails and the glazing look spot on, really help in set this ship apart. Keep up the great work! Geoff
  12. Thats looks like its going to be really striking on the sandbar.... Great stuff with the light tower as well, that bulb looks cracking. Geoff
  13. Cracking work there, like the choice of colours for the camo. What's next? Geoff
  14. Navy blue doesn't seem right! The Lifecolour paints ate good, 6 in a pack so not too expensive. They paint and airbrush well with the same finished results. Good luck, looking forward to seeing what you create. Geoff
  15. Hi Joss. Do the instructions tell you to paint her allover 507c, the light grey? I think Zulu had a standard med paint job in 1941, hard to tell from the images available if anyoneknows anything else please correct me if I'm wrong? The light grey 507c would be fine for everything above the hull. The hull itself would probably have been 507b medium grey with the deck being the dark grey 507a. If you just have Vallejo model paints available the the best equivalents I can find are below. I've only tried the light grey and it's a good scale match. You can get Lifecolour acrilics in the desired mix but they only come in a set so don't know if you'd want to go down that route. 507a pre war dark grey- Vallejo 816 luffwaffe uniform 507b medium grey- 900 french mirage blue 507c light grey-990-919 light grey and foundation white mixed 1 light grey to 3 white. Hope this helps a bit. Looking forward to seeing what you create, great work so far! Geoff
