      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. Now that AMG has released their series of early Bf.109 kits, I wonder if anyone who has dropped the coin for one has any thoughts or impressions they can share? I've seen pictures of it and have developed my own opinion as this point, but that is all, just an opinion as I have not picked one up yet. I'll admit that I am also having more than just a little difficulty swallowing the price (price plus shipping running around the $30 plus USD mark) that I see being asked for it (on eBay anyways). I will say that I am not a fan of the photoetched landing gear covers (that may, or may not, change). I am sure they are truly "to scale" being photoetch, just not sold on them though. I suppose that if anything, it can not be any worse than the Avis release from several years ago. That was one I had high hopes for but was quite disappointed once in hand. Anyways... thoughts, impressions anyone?
  2. Check your inbox Ham. Also look here. By far the best price I have come across for the 110C/D ProfiPACK, under $26 USD delivered to North America. Much better savings than the Sprue Bros price.
  3. Now isn't that the truth! I see it every time I am poking around eBay LOL
  4. I should also just say, I do not doubt what you have said Mike, I am only surprised probably due to many years of buying kits or other goodies from companies like Hannants and with exchange rates and shipping, I'm so used to seeing it being on the expensive side when it comes to buying from Overseas vendors.
  5. Really? WoW! Is it with free shipping to North America or an equivalent price of combination of kit and shipping?
  6. As a follow up, after a quick eBay search, here is an eBay seller from Grand Rapids offering the 110D Weekend Edition with free shipping. Here is another eBay seller out of the UK offering the Eduard 110E Weekend Edition kit for $20.39 with Free Shipping to the US. I am sure that you could find others. The good prices and deals are there to be found and had, just need to look for them.
  7. The Eduard Bf.110C/D & E are all the same boxings. Instructions for them can be had from Eduard's website. As for price, I have bought many of my 110 kits off eBay and at some excellent prices, you just have to do a little poking around. Also, if you are not in a big hurry for the kit, sometimes patience pays off and you can find an extraordinary deal on one.
  8. IMHO, the only Pz.IV Ausf.H kit to get right now would be the Dragon or Revell kit, really, it's a bit of a toss up between the two as they are both really well done. I haven't been able to find any pictures of the Modelcollect kit, but if it came with the Zimmerit as in the box art and if the quality was on par (or better) than the Revell or Dragon kits, then hands down, it's the one to beat.
  9. Understand! As I said, it is an absolutely amazing job. Have you given thought to doing one from one of the movies?
  10. Fantastic, thank you Dave. You probably do not remember me, but we had met at one of the GOMBs shows in Calgary.
  11. Thanks for your reply. It's interesting as Wadman and Brown's work for the day was supposed to be very accurate and well researched. I do not remember if it was released before or after the EagleCals sheet/research. It's amazing as time goes on how once "accurate" information is shown to be wrong or misinterpreted as new information is made available. I had met Dave Wadman several years ago, nice fellow. Sure wish I could cross paths again with him to get his take on this question today! I think it would be most interesting and a good history lesson for me.
  12. To my knowledge this new 262 kit is not yet out, but there are enough pictures of the box art and this has raised a question for me on the accuracy of what the "proposed" decals will be. Yellow 3 as the markings show has a blue and white checked fuselage band: This is similar to a 262 sheet from EagleCals from many years back: Where my question arises, I have a set of decals produced by Dave Wadman and Dave Brown (Experten Decals) that show the same aircraft with a green and white fuselage band: Does anyone know if there has been new information in the last number of years that confirms one or the other?
  13. Thanks Mike, I appreciate the heads up and will do that.
  14. Hi Mike, I believe I did as they are being shipped to Canada. The best price that I saw on eBay was about $25 USD mail and that was for one. I paid $19 USD per set. Knowing my luck, they'll pop up for even less! LOL Now if I can only find a good price on those new Bf.109B kits...
  15. Anyway you slice it, a pretty damn dirty thing to do.
