      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! I`ve corrected the link to the WIP thread.
  2. Thanks, Darby! I use my leave as constructively as I can... Another small but important update. I`ve managed to prepare the cowling elements for the paint job. I must admit the nose cowling is time-consuming but well rewarding at the end. I simply love the AW logos. Again everything falls into its place. Just notice the small nuts in one part of the side cowling and the holes to accept them in the other. WOW!
  3. One of my favourite birds of all times - there`s one in front of my primary school in Jarocin, Poland (the first picture below). I`m aware that my model is faulty in many aspects but this is the first time I`ve painted the whole thing using Alclads and Gunze metallic paints, also this is my first jet in more than 25 years... Trumpeter kit + Part PE, Montex masks, Master barrels, Billmodel decals.

  4. Another small update - I`ve scratched the oil tank since there are no pictures of the port of the engine bay of F.K.8 (at least to my knowledge) I had to figure things out on my own.
  5. Thanks! I use the 0,08 fishing line. When it comes to the turnbuckles I use the cotton buds tube stretched over the flame. After a few attempts, you get a nice tube. "the loop" is made of a fuse wire. Rick, the woodgrain is some tan acrylic, probably XF-55 and artistic oils. Clear orange sprayed over the oils when they were dry.
  6. Yes, the differences are quite prominent. The 17 is bigger than the 15, the nozzle in most cases, the shape of the canopy, the shape of the airbrakes, 1 more fencer on the wing etc. When it comes to the PF or PFU variant the air intake is also different due to Izumrud radar. I`m no expert just some things that come to my mind straight away. There`s 17 (Lim 5M) in my hometown too, but I need to find a way to get closer to it, cause it`s inside a military base set as a monument. I`m planning to build is as well.
  7. I`m extremely grateful for your kind words!
  8. Beautifully done mate! I really like the way you painted it - the subtleties of the shading are superb. Also detailing and other aspects of this fantastic build are top notch. The last picture is extremely convincing - it looks like the real deal. Congratulations on one of the best Su-22 models I`ve ever seen (I`m Polish so I`ve seen many
  9. Very nice! One of my favourite jets! Still, remember the sound of their engines over my town.
  10. In the meantime, I`ve painted the pilot`s figure.
  11. It took some time to finally take the pictures of the model that was 98% completed a long time ago. The only thing I`ve added is the beaching trolleys. And some under construction pics:
  12. This kit is really superb - everything comes together nicely and almost without putty. I`ve started to add plumbing and wiring to the Beardmore. The right side is almost done, now I need to work on the right side.
  13. Thanks!
  14. If you think that the CSM is planning to release Schneider Trophy planes you might be disappointed Maybe Sopwith Schneider but frankly speaking I haven`t heard anything about that...
  15. Many thanks, Courageous! In the meanwhile, I`m working on the Beardmore 160HP resin engine. I think it`s very nice with all the details like the spark plugs and the PE rocker arms. The plastic one is also very decent. There is one thing that made my heart beat faster with joy - the little nameplate decal printed on a separate sheet - I think because there are some metallic colours used. The engine in the pictures is built OOB with an extensive weathering. Now, I`m planning to add some wires, pipes and an oil tank - which will be similar to the Beardmore used with the FE2B flying replica. I use the pictures of the latter taken by Jamo_kiwi. What do you think - may I use them and apply an analogy to the F.K.? It`s important because I want to leave some of the cowling off to show the engine. The resin Beardmore is great but pictures show a lot of spots, where I need to do touch ups.
