      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 for the reference, although unfortunately, my modelling is very budget, so if I could buy the tools that you guys have, I would, but I try to do the best that I can with what I have, although I'll definitely have a look at that masking tape.
  2. Thanks, as you wanted me to ask, how do you know about the masking tape, and I'm sorry to disappoint, but Number 5 is an Italeri F-51D Mustang.
  3. Thanks all, I don't have an airbrush (should've specified earlier) so I can't use the Alclad route, but I'll probably test them and go with whichever looks closest. Best Wishes BetaSingh
  4. Would a Humbrol Aluminium Metalcote be a closer option for the fuselage, as I think you guys have said to use plain Aluminium for the wings? The problem is I don't know whether my local hobby shop stocks Humbrol 27001/02, and would getting variations in the Aluminium paint just be the better option if I can't get Metalcote? Best Wishes BetaSingh
  5. Hello all I am making the Italeri F-51D Mustang, which I believe is similar to the P-51 (correct me if I'm wrong), and I was wondering which paint I would use for the USAF Silvery fuselage colour. I have Humbrol Aluminium, Revell Silver Metallic and Humbrol Silver Metallic, would any of those be the correct colour, and if not, would it be possible to get the correct colour from a place like B&Q (a DIY store) or would you have to get it from the hobby shop. Kind Regards and All Answers Appreciated BetaSingh
  6. Hello all This is an Airfix Bf109, and is my fourth ever model, so of course it won't be as good as the masterpieces you guys create, but I tried my hardest and it was a really nice kit, with everything just falling into place, and I highly recommend it. I hope you guys enjoy! Best Wishes BetaSingh Image Gallery
  7. Hi Sam Hope to see the Concorde flourish Good luck BetaSingh
  8. Hi Good luck on your Concorde, and a great looking Spitfire by the way, and the Vampire on the edge of the photo looks stunning, funnily enough the Vampire is exactly what I am building now. Once again good luck and best wishes BetaSingh
  9. Hi Andrii Sorry for the late reply, I have looked on Scalemates, and I believe that the FROG kit depicts the De Havilland DH100 Vampire, while the Airfix Starter Kit depicts the De Havilland T11 Vampire Hope this helps BetaSingh
  10. Thanks guys! The actual building of the kit seems enjoyable, but as a person who usually builds 1/144 airliners, it's very fiddly! Cheers BetaSingh
  11. Oh, how silly I feel 😂 Thanks for the reply
  12. Hello all I picked up this model from my local Hobbycraft, as, for a new modeller, a model and 6 paints, a glue and two brushes to add to the collection for a fiver is a great deal. In all honesty, I did think this would be a snap fit, and I mainly bought it for the paints. When I got home, I was pleasantly surprised. It was not a Snap Fit, but a proper model, with 55 parts, and O was really excited to make it when I saw the paints. 5 out of the 6 paints that were supplied were the incorrect colour, and I was really disappointed as these paints were really very poor, and for my first Airfix kit, I was very shocked. Worst was Humbrol 86, which is meant to be a brown, but it was blue! Still, I did the best that I could, and I have finished the day having built the cockpit with the joysticks. I am not planning to put any pilots in as I kind of messed up painting the pilots, and I would rather have liked to see the seats. I was going to use masking tape for the seatbelt but I decided against it. I don't really know how to insert images, so I just put them all into an album on a photo website and I would greatly appreciate if you could check out the link. Thanks for reading, any advice is appreciated and hope you all have a great day BetaSingh
