      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. Well done on the trop colour scheme. It really sets it off. BTW, I've always wondered why my Airfix Stuka had protrusions on the wheel spats. What were the propellers for?
  2. That's very nice, especially the paintwork.
  3. What an outstanding model. Just wish I could come anywhere near your skills. Hats off to you sir.
  4. Very nice Jerzy. It has rekindled my interest in getting out an old Smer Breguet 693 from under my desk. Do I, don't I.
  5. Very nice, especially the engine detail.
  6. Another great looking model Kevin. Well done.
  7. Not usually a fan of modern pointy things, but that deserves a WOW.
  8. I do like that. Well done.
  9. Hi SF. Just thought I'd let you know I visited this shop today and they had what seemed a full rack of Tamiya acrylics and the brushes I wanted. 5 mile each way instead of 30+ round trip, and cheaper. Happy days! Thanks again for the suggestion.
  10. Thanks, chaps. I shall take your advice. It does smell nice though, or is that just me?
  11. After reading some very good reviews I bought a bottle. Have I misunderstood what it's used for? I assumed I could use it in the same way as Revell Contacta for example. I've tried it several times with joining a fuselage and wings to experiment. After I took the clamps off they fell apart. Does it have another use?
