    Modelling? I guess I'm a bit interested in that...

  1. Painted CSM figures

    Hi and yes, it would interest me very much! I'm rubbish at figure painting!
  2. Hi Robert and Christian and to you all taking part in this GB, OK, I've finally decided that I'll be taking part in the RAF 100th Birthday GB, so it is a no-brainer that I would like to put my name down for this one too. It will be a Wingnut Wings kit.
  3. The Royal Air Force Centenary GB

    Hi all! OK, I've been dragged out of Groupbuild retirement and would like to take part with (and finish!) something for this very significant birthday. I'm not sure what yet, I'll hunt through the stash, but Sopwith Snipe from between the wars? Maybe something lend-lease from WWII? Or my own favourite theme from when I was in the Air Training Corps, RAFG? I'll have a look through the stash and the decal bank and get back to you with a definite decision.
  4. A Bit of WNW speculation

    Put me down for one please Duncan!
  5. Hello from Mark

    Hello Mark from, errr, Mark!! 😊
  6. Hi! I've just found this thread but wow, am I glad I did! Superb stuff!! I love the wavy idea with the blu-tac. 😍
  7. Morning all! I’ve just checked the Snipe thread and all the photographs I originally posted are now visible, no ransom demands! As Mike (Bootneck) suggested above, it looks like it was a ‘WWW Propagation’ thing; I am sure there is a more technical term! Thanks for your help everyone. Yes, it’s expensive, yes the storage isn’t as big as others, although my 2,000+ photos only take up 2% of my upgraded storage now, as opposed to the 54% they used to on my free account. I’ll see how it goes for the next year, if I’m happy then I’ll stay with them. If not I’ll be back asking for your advice on where to head off to next!
  8. Jeez, that was three years ago... I better start on this again soon otherwise there'll be more cobweb than plastic!
  9. Just checked a few of my other threads from a few years ago, the photos seem to be showing again on these: http://www.britmodeller.com/forums/index.php?/topic/234919847-ducati-desmosidici-gp4-pramac-dantin/&tab=comments#comment-1048764 http://www.britmodeller.com/forums/index.php?/topic/234974257-the-148-catalina-wip-thread-two-for-the-price-of-one/& http://www.britmodeller.com/forums/index.php?/topic/234974162-first-of-2015-mikoyan-gurevich-mig-15-tamiya-148/&tab=comments#comment-1851260 http://www.britmodeller.com/forums/index.php?/topic/234976739-finished-accurate-miniatures-148-douglas-dauntless-sbd-1-yellow-wings/ But there are still loads of photos in the Snipe thread, here that are not showing. Oh well, it looks as if most of the old photos are back and no problems with posting new ones. $99 well spent..... I think.
  10. Thanks guys. Trevor, I've done that (it's in the Aircraft > Work in Progress section) but there seems to be only half of the linked photos showing. All photos are still showing in my Photobucket library, they were never deleted. I have got hundreds of photos on this site in various areas, so maybe it just takes to filter through?
  11. Hi all, I'm just bringing this one up to the top to see if the photos are now visible
  12. Sorry, Trevor, I'm not sure that I know what you mean?
  13. Hi Trevor, so I assume that you can see the engine detail of the Fokker D.VII hanging from the Dübendorf museum in Switzerland, but can you see the photos of the Sopwith Snipe model in the linked thread?
  14. OK, call me a mug, but I have decided to give PB some dosh and try and recover the access to the hundreds of photos that I have uploaded to PB and made available to view here. Did I agree with their increase in fees to an astonishing $400? NO! Of course not, but as a mate of mine suggested this evening, $99 is a full tank of gas, so I decided that it would be easier to upgrade and just continue using my old account. So, let's see... Can you all see this? I certainly can, but please carry on reading... But, and here's the big BUT, can you see the photos in the following thread? I can't and still keep seeing the original ransom note or place holder for the photos that were there. So am I correct in saying that PB only allows 3rd party hosting on new posts on forums such as this? If so then I am fecking angry......... I'll be sending an appropriately worded email to them in a short while after I've settled down a little. All I wanted was to 'reveal' the original photos, had I known that they would still not be visible, but only new ones will be, then I'd certainly not have paid.
  15. Heinkel He 111-H3 (48261) 1:48

    Ditto all of the above! Mine arrived via Santamail and it was on the bench by the 27th Dec. For the future, I have decided that single-engined will only be in 1/32 leaving 1/48 for the larger, multi-engined types. She's quite a substantial lump in 1/48 and the detail provided should be more than enough for most modellers. Resin wheels will, no doubt, be on the market within weeks and I've already ordered the New Ware masking set, number NWA-M0338 as that will save hours of masking the glazing. http://www.modelimex.com/1-48-mask-he-111-h-3-expert-icm-48261 I'm also giving the Akan paints an outing as they are, apparently, spot on representations for the RLM colours. When I find out how best to post photos, I'll try and do a WIP thread.
