      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. Thanks Guys. Sorry it's been a while but things got put to one side after we lost my Mum. Just getting back to it. This one has been very hard at times. It seems that every part of it is so fragile. I want to do the Revel Route Master bus next but I'm not sure if I should try my hand at airbrushing. I have had good results this time hand painting and I guess it's a more traditional method. Be interesting to see people's opinions on this. I promise I will reply quicker next time.
  2. When I get time I will share a pic of the model. I am impressed with how it looks so far. I have hand painted it but have used humbrol paints instead as I find them better. The conversion chart is a God send. I want to try airbrushing in the future but will need to practice first. That might be better for when I restore the dinky/corgi toy cars.
  3. Thanks everyone, that has given me a few ideas to try. My wife does card and jewellery making so I may raid her stuff to see what she has got. Might ask first though hey!!
  4. Ok...so I'm not having much look getting new clear parts for my 1:26 scale phantom ll continental. Could they be made? And if so what would be the best stuff to use?
  5. I am building a Revell Phantom ll Continental (1934) 1:16 scale no. 07459. It appears that the clear parts section has gone missing. (I have looked everywhere!). Revell informed me that the kit has not been produced for a couple of years so they can't help me with the clear parts section. Can anybody offer advise or does anyone have the bits going spare.
