      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.

    Too many to list?
  1. 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.
  2. 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.
  3. It looks great!!! Photos- YAY!!!!!
  4. Looks great! And... YAY - PHOTOS!!! I began to think photos on BM were a thing of the past, after the Photobucket debacle!
  5. 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.
  6. 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.
  7. Thanks Julian - Slickpic seems like a good choice - particularly as, unlike a lot of sites (Photobucket, Postimage, etc), 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.
  8. 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.
  9. 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'.
  10. It's a great model, and a fitting tribute to the brave but doomed Polish resistance.
  11. 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.
  12. Looks great!
  13. It's looking really good. An 'El Alamein' Sherman is one of those iconic things that I will, one day, model.
  14. Thank you. Of course, feel free to 'stalk' me.
  15. Very little time for modelling or photography today. I got a bit done yesterday - mostly more of the main body - might manage to photgraph those bits tomorrow. Here's this morning's effort - two jerry-can holders:
