      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. Hi Steve Just caught up. What a great WIP you've had. The 109 really does look excellent. You've overcome some really tricky stuff and you've done a blinding job. Looking forward to the next WIP....
  2. Hi Graham Thank you for the new information. It's a bit of a minefield isn't it with the correct colours. Atkeast whatever I choose can't be wrong I haven't started the kit yet but will certainly take your comments into consideration when it comes to painting her up. Thanks again
  3. Looking great Steve. Impressive work mate
  4. @BIG X could you make use of a resin seat and some HGW seat belts in any of the future 109 builds? If you could drop me a line and we can sort something out for you
  5. Yes, get her dressed up good and proper. I must say, this has turned into a cracking build thread mate. I'm glad you took the plunge!
  6. Thank you Steve, that's most helpful. Manged to to pick up the parcel from the post office today and looking at the masks the sky is a greyish colour, so the top is sorted now just the bottom to sort.
  7. Thanks @gingerbob the potential demarcation is interesting. So if I wanted I could go either a two tone camo or a one colour topside.
  8. Thanks Steve so really artistic licence ahoy then? Wheel hub covers?
  9. I've had a good read through the links and its interesting that the colour schemes appear to have been made up so there's multiple options for the scheme. The mask instructions show the underneath to be sky but is this the sky as seen in BOB of aircraft or sky blue? Grateful for any advice on this. Cheers
  10. Thanks for the links. I had found the all spitfire pilots one and there wasn't much but at least it gives the engine type for some detailing.
  11. Anything and everything that can help with the build..... are there Any more pictures out there, any information whether it had filters at any time fitted or not, anything specific about the aircraft? Just anything really as I can't find anything
  12. Hi guys, My next project is going to be the Airfix 1/24 Spitfire Vb and as I'm not keen on the box marking options I've invested in a set of Montex masks in preparation for my finally getting an airbrush. The options for these masks are S-V EP436 of 1435 squadron in Malta in October 1942 in extra dark sea grey with sky undersides. The other is IR-G AB502 Tunisia 1943 in the standard desert scheme. Ive tried to find some details online in respect of the former aircraft and it's history etc and have found one picture of the aircraft on the ground with the engine panels removed, which is nice. I can't find anything else. However, does anyone have any information in respect of this particular aircraft to help me with the build? Id be grateful for any help. Thanks in advance
  13. Blimey, you have been busy mate! Five more 109s is brilliant. Its a a real shame what happened with this one it was looking good, your other five are going to be great.
  14. Christer you brave soul! I shall be following along, good luck!
