      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. My years doing technical drawing at school reminded me that there was a way to do it, but I couldn't remember the method. I've saved the link as well – it may come in useful. Where was the internet when I was doing my homework?
  2. That's nice of you to ask Rafhart - I'll send you a private message.
  3. Takes me back to technical drawing as well. You could do it from flat plastic, this site may help: http://craig-russell.co.uk/demos/cone_calculator/ Hope that helps.
  4. I'm pleased that you have at least one distributor, but it's out of my price range.
  5. Excellent job! I like it a lot.
  6. I agree with @Meatbox8, I also thought it was 1/48. A1 job.
  7. They'll come off… you just need to give them more persuasion.
  8. As a potential purchaser, I'm sorry to hear that Rafhart.
  9. Fat Hermann considerate? He's usually the one complaining. It only seems like yesterday he was whining about the P-51's over Berlin. I mean, we make the effort to go over to visit, and he can't even crack a smile.
  10. That is a thing of beauty. The work you have put into it is remarkable - top quality modelling!
  11. I would particularly like to see the Merc completed. If it's as good as your Fiat Mefistofele, it will be a stunner.
  12. Glad to hear the troop carrier arrived safely. It would have been damn bad luck for those U-Boat jonnies to get them – particularly as they didn't travel by sea. As they were mostly Brit's, Yank's, Jap's and Russkie's, they didn't get time for German language lessons before their posting to the new base. The officers have probably stirred up trouble with the enlisted men as they complained bitterly about the 2nd class travel arrangements. Just sit them down (after applying glue) and give them a good talking to (while the glue sets) I doubt they'll give you much trouble after that. Glad to be rid of the colourless, inanimate bunch.
  13. That is an absolutely lovely job, well done. So tiny!
