  1. IDF Macha"G M579 Fitter

    Thanks Julian - Slickpic seems like a good choice - particularly as, unlike a lot of sites (Photobucket, , you retain full ownership of your images. That might not matter to some folks, but I do sell a few images (albeit not of toy tanks!), so I need to retain full control. Still making progress... Still haven't found a good solution for photo hosting - working on it though! So, this afternoon, I have airbrushed the 'Macha"G' Fitter with 'Sinai Grey'. That's the bit of modelling which I dislike, despite having upgraded all my airbrushing gear recently. The brush (Iwata Eclipse SBS Side-Feed) refused to work to begin with, so I had to strip and clean it. Gosh, but it's so much easier to strip and reassemble than my old Badger was. And then, when I'd finished spraying, and cleaned up, the cable reel/winder on the spray booth refused to retract the cable, so I had to strip that down too, in order to get it working so the booth would fold back into its box. But I have got the basic painting done. The nice thing about IDF armour is that there's no pesky camouflage to worry about - squirt the thing with a coat of 'Sinai Grey' and you're done. So now, once I've given it a few hours to cure fully, I can get back to the fun bits!
  2. Early IDF M50.

    Early Dragon A4s were indeed well-wrong in the area of the idler position and spacing to the rearmost bogie - it's a long, long, time since I built one, but it was a significant number of mm - requiring surgery to get it looking half-decent.
  3. USMC M1A1 and no-slip paint

    If this had remained in the 'wrong place', alongside those nasty aeroplanes, I would have been tempted to ask... Q: What's the definition of air superiority? A: A tank on the runway.
  4. It looks great!!! Photos- YAY!!!!!
  5. Early IDF M50.

    Looks great! And... YAY - PHOTOS!!! I began to think photos on BM were a thing of the past, after the Photobucket debacle!
  6. I fortunate, at least on this forum*, as I don't have a lot of images. I shall re-link them from my new host, at some point when I'm feeling like being very, very, bored. I'm fairly mad with Photoshitbucket. I don't mind paying a bit, in principle, but $399 is utterly outrageous - that's clearly a statement of 'we don't want any cheapskates' - I guess they're trying to change their market position and customer base... and I sincerely hope it fails, completely, and that they go bust. * But I have hundreds of images linked on other fora. No way those threads are anything but dead - life's too short to sort them out. A couple of fora I follow are completely gutted by this - and that's what makes me mad - it's so unnecessary.
  7. IDF Macha"G M579 Fitter

    Hmm! I've just linked to a file, and it comes with a nasty advert for Slickpic. Maybe that's not the solution after all. Later... Ah, that's what happens with a trial account... If I pay (and it's not too expensive, unlike Photobucket) the ads disappear.

    Thanks! It does sound like ransomeware - and in effect it is. I'm in the process of dowloading all my Photobucket albums. Once Ive done that, I'll find somewhere else (like Slickpic), re-upload them and then it's the monumental task of relinking... Which, to be honest, may not happen, other than for recent projects.
  10. IDF Macha"G M579 Fitter

    I'm sorry. Photobucket have just changed their terms and conditions, with absolutely no warning... And are basically holding all my images hostage. Unless I pay them US$399 (!!!) per annum, I can't use their site for hotlinking photos. What the heck? Does anyone really use Photobucket for anything other than hotlinking their pictures? Needless to say, I'm not paying. So I'm sorry, but until I find another solution, and can find the time and energy to re-upload the hundreds of pictures my various forum accounts link to, all my posts will be 'image-free'.
  11. It's a great model, and a fitting tribute to the brave but doomed Polish resistance.
  12. IDF Macha"G M579 Fitter

    Haven't done anything to it today (yet), but here's the past few days' efforts. The main body (with new hole for the crane); cupola; the roof plate and the 'missing' hinges for the latter.
  13. 1/16th Renault Ft

    Looks great!
  14. Sherman II 'El Alamein'

    It's looking really good. An 'El Alamein' Sherman is one of those iconic things that I will, one day, model.

    Thank you. Of course, feel free to 'stalk' me.
