      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. Hello Dear ETI, Looking in the attic on my old magazine, did'nt find any Roc But look, Who remind this, the arrival of the first SHAR in the FAA on the 18 of June 1979 And who know this, A jet powered B-26... Hope to be more succesfull in a very near future. Sincerely. Corsaircorp
  2. Ah Ah Ah That remind me a joke done years ago, at the time, I was driving an Opel (Vauxhall) Monterey. I came back from a friend of mine with 2 F-84 era flight helmet. I decide to wear the best of these 2 Was waiting at the red light, a car came beside me, the driver was looking at me in awe !! Already funny enough but No ! As the light turn green, I put down the sun screen, paid a top gun style salute and fire the gas pedal !! The driver of the other car stay on spot, mouth open, did'nt start at all. Was fun ! Sincerely. Corsaircorp
  3. Hello dears, As we had some good laugh about our tastes in car in a WiP thread, why not opening a dedicated thread and have more fun !! I have polished my P-47N before having a coat of clear ... That gave me a kick to do Something Mrs CC was really pleased with ! Let me introduce you to "Peanut" 19 years old, 176.000 kms, when I bought it 5 years ago she only has 22.102 Kms made in 14 years. Of course, the lady is by no means the X type I was dreaming about but she is a problem free car 19 years and still going strong, she will be back in UK in August... So now Gents come on and show yours, let's have some humor... Are we going to see Tesla, Cadillac, Mg's, Bentley.... Have a very nice day. Corsaircorp
  4. Ohhh Damn ! That was the puffins... I was wondering about which one of us has done that It will be more cautious to put the puffins with the hens finally Don't wanna see how the puffins will make it with the chilli.... CC
  5. Hello Spad, Good idea with the planes, entry door to modelling for some kids !! Very nice place you're on ! And Chinook as neighbours, another clever idea, may be your next build ?? Enjoy and relax, or in USN way, rest and recreation. That's important too ! Sincerely. CC PS; what do you consider at too much mess, we tried to show the goat how to pick up and eat the bits of fresh fish strawn everywhere by Tony T's puffins.... Not conclusive for that while, may be bringing the hens in the house, that's another option
  6. Hello Sam, Congrats, very nice start on the V beast. I really like these James Bondish Aircraft, yours look good. Sincerely. Corsaircorp
  7. Enjoy your camping extravaganza Dear Spad ! We take care of the HP, that way, seem buzy !! Nobody will know that you're out, That's what can be called friends. The goat has chewed some of the curtains, but just in the corners, look better that way ! Have a very nice holidays, sunny hopefully !! Sincerely. Corsaircorp
  8. Kind of a mess ?? Nope, regular to me, while you find what you're looking for, where is the problem ?? I used to search for my stuff only when SWMBO has cleaned up the whole thing. But I'm Lucky enough, she did'nt dare to even have a look in my modelling cabinet. Really like the bunch of Spits, you have another Castle Bromwich for a near future, let's go now ! Glad to see you back, and congrats for the white ensign ! Sincerely. Corsaircorp
  9. Hello dear and fully respected tentacled one. Okay and thank you for sharing, you did a great interior, I'll try to half as best. Very nice work, Sincerely. Corsaircorp
  10. Raaaahhhh ! You let down a 15£ Roc !! at 1/48 ?? Hope that I'll have such a luck in Telford, I have another Roc to do ! Sincerely. You really let this beautifull lady on the table. Won't get fooled again !! Corsaircorp
  11. Hello Martian, What do you think about the Roc's seat, I trimmed both sides, cut and sand and get this. Seem to look good to me, but you told that the seat is not afixed to the bulkhead ? Hope that you don't mind for the photo, thank you beforehand. Sincerely. Corsaircorp
  12. Hello Nigel, Seemingly, we've got Something in common... Albacore à la provençale ??? Are we going to clean the place ?? We know that the dishwasher has been repaired, so go on !! Sincerely. Corsaircorp
  13. Hooops did I forget the Puffins https://www.bing.com/videos/search?q=funny+puffins&&view=detail&mid=1D50FF29BFA7E1F62F9B1D50FF29BFA7E1F62F9B&FORM=VRDGAR
  14. Hello Beard, A 22 for me, I'm found of the 609th. Can't wait to see it ! I'll make the P. Richey's Spit. Sincerely. Corsaircorp
  15. And it did get out of the Poole .... In Bermuda ! That's why he remain silent, gonna have a trip to see if he can find a Roc ! See you tomorrow dear gentlemen, I fell asleep on my chair Sincerely. Corsaircorp
  16. Hello Dears, Very tired, so did'nt do many, I worked on the bucket that pretend to be a seat And adjusting the turret mechanism. Parts are felling from my stubby fingers, hairy stick go astray. cannot make it good that way. I used tiny roll of sand paper for reducing the depht of the seat, will compare with a Spit or Hurri seat tomorrow. Have a quiet night, hope to get it for myself And a pretty fine modelling day. Sincerely. Corsaircorp
  17. Hello dears, Hello welcomed ETI, Here I go with a very nice looking of an aeroplane. I used our Martian words, This one will follow the pace of an asthmatic snail from Namur Region with at least 2 bad limbs I always liked the Blackburn design, like this one One of these day... I'll do it at 1/48 But for the while, I'll try this Here we go There is just one Roc that actually saw combat, and she was helped by 2 Skua. So I was looking for Something more original... Did'nt manage to be as original as our beloved Martian's Floatplane Target Tug but... I will represent onbe of the use of the Roc, she was on the side of airstrips, levelled up and plugged to a generator And she was used as a AAA battery..... Poor dismayed Roc. There was some logic beyond the idea, It was harder to shoot down an Aircraft already on the ground But Seriously... Levelled up ? Here she is... Just sayin' hello to the alien... So I cut the hump to lower it and I will cut the transparencies too, that will be a first for me. Did'nt have too many photos from the interior, but it seem that I must change the fuel tanks. And I also will open the turret's doors, why making it easy??? Ok Gents, more to follow soon, another RFI in a few days and 3 others at the ready... Have a nice day and take care. Sincerely. Corsaircorp
  18. I mean this The link has'nt been inserted on the first message... Sorry. CC
  19. I searched with Roc and Bermuda and find this.... Is there some Roc on Mars too ??? Amazing my Dear Watson !! Sincerely. CC
  20. I'll follow your advice, seem clever ! When I finished the B-17 if she make a remark, I'll find a way to be the gentleman I pretend to be After all, I have another P-47 and an A-26 that will bear her name... Thanks for the kind words. Sincerely. Corsaircorp
  21. Hello dears, Just to show you another kit well on his way. The academy kit is well Worth his price, I have erased both the panels on wings and fuselage, because this is barely visible on the real thing. And raised as it was on the kit, sanding once again, I have added the Aires interior, an Aires P-2900 late and the Quickboost guns. The propeller came from a Tamiya kit because this P-47N-10 has paddle blade propeller. I have a lot of resin engines because they're generally poorly represented, here's a view of th interior I have copied the turbo from another kit who share the same type of material and add it to my P-47 The cleaned up wing, again sanding and putty. And I will to reproduce this one, 2 pin up for the price of one, another one for my Pacific serie. Thank for watching. Corsaircorp
  22. Hello Dear Tentacled one. There was no accusation at all, and you're doing a Roc, not an Avenger ! So interstellar Journey is not a problem, for you... Why not a Journey in the past intented to bring back all the photos we need so oftenly. Or asking the ETI responsible for the disappearance of the Aircraft in the Bermuda triangle If they did'nt have a Roc floatplane target tug in their own private air museum from Earth ??? Just a suggestion indeed. Have a nice modelling day. Sincerely. CC
  23. Hello PC, Better not to listen to me, Full nasal, as my ancestors gave me a clearly trompet shaped nose, Wich I pass to my kids I first learned English with military peoples from Florida Just to give you an idea of my accentuation... And keep Learning with farmers from Ireland ( Some lessons were given in the Pub ) So no times for self destruction, there's always worst somewhere ! I make myself to be proud about my English-Murcan teachers ! And I also passed it to my daughter which is making a good use of it ! Also nasal voiced, not to mention when we are recorded, kinda like the real Donald Duck, funny... Have a nice modelling day. Sincerely. Corsaircorp
