      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's how a Tonka stole my heart... Excellent built, weathered and photographed. Just right up my alley!
  2. And I thought all of them were red. I like this scheme much more, looks really bad a**. Your paint job has a worn and rough outcom, like it should be on such an old car. How did you manage it? Oh, and I like your photography, too!
  3. I think for only your third model this is a great result. I've built the Eduard 190 for myself and it is for sure not a kit for beginner. The stripe on the spinner is simply called "spinner spiral". Your paint job and weathering looks solid on top and belly. Maybe the soot stains of the wing guns are a bit overdone. But that's only a minor point.
  4. A really stunning piece of craftmanship. The watermarks with the salt stains along the hull caught my attention on first sight. So much to discover on every single part of that sub. Remarkable work.
  5. Very well executed model. The blue rockets and tanks add some colour diversion to save the scheme from looking too uniform.
  6. That's the kind of modelling I really enjoy looking at. Off the mainstream and so well executed.
  7. This is so in your face. It jumped right on me, picture for picture. Splendid work, Matthias! Would like to see her belly, though.
  8. I can only underline what's been written above. Mighty fine work.
  9. Filling all those joints was absolutely worth the effort. Lovely finish on the speeder and the figure. I especially like the pose. Not too much action, but in motion and he's looking alarmed of something...
  10. I just can repeat what already has been said. Beautiful finish! It's a lot of aftermarket involved, isn't it?
  11. This is incredibly good. And more bettererer. Can't wait to see a shot of the whole boat.
  12. Approved, Sir! Now go on, please. What is it by the way?
  13. It's always hard to judge on a picture, but I've made the experience that a semi-gloss or dull coat lets the contrasts 'melt' together rather stark. Maybe you give it a try on a spot on the underside with your clear coat of choice. If it's still a bit splotchy you can add a further filter of the base color.
  14. Very nice! This is almost the state where I'm at with mine now. Started with the black basing-method and put the first marbling coat on. Ran a bit out of steam the past weeks but looking at yours makes me want to go back at it. Much inspiring!
  15. Simply striking.
