      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. Not being a MiG nerd in the least, the model looks very MiG-15-ish to my untrained eyes. And the finish is just very convincing. Excellent modelling! Kind regards, Joachim
  2. Interesting Hurricane scheme, very well implemented. Wouldn't the prop blades have yellow tips, though? Smart looking model! Kind regards, Joachim
  3. She really looks every inch, er… millimeter like a JA 37 – can't think of a more apt praise than that. ;-) Impressive work! Kind regards, Joachim
  4. Superb handiwork! Kind regards, Joachim
  5. It's great to see one of Gordon Stevens' Rareplanes actually built, and to such a high standard at that. Also, it's amazing to realise that this awkward monstrosity of a fighter design (the Air Ministry specification must take most of the blame, I guess) gave way to the graceful and deadly Type 300 that took to the air just two years after the first flight of the 224 (which ended its life as a shooting target). Good and inspiring modelling! Kind regards, Joachim
  6. It's great to see someone starting out with such enthusiasm! The camo pattern looks great and it's obvious that you approached the model in a very ambitious way. Like others have commented, modelling is about having fun and you're not competing with anybody except yourself. ;-) Getting a really smooth brushed paint finish is an acquired skill that takes a lot of practice. Generally, it's best to thin the paint a bit and then paint thinner but several layers, letting them dry completely between coats. The thinner paint will let the details through. Best of luck with your next project! I'm looking forward to have it displayed here. Kind regards, Joachim
  7. Excellent build and finish! When it comes to number of photos in a presentation, less is often more. ;-) Too many essentially similar pics make for viewer fatigue… Great modelling (and photography)! Kind regards, Joachim
  8. Very smartly finished model of this Blohm & Voss (thus BV, not VB…) P.194! As a project designed to replace the Ju 87 Stuka, the P.194 was dead in the water already on the drawing board, apparently, but as an example of Dr. Richard Vogt's love affair with asymmetric, it's interesting. Great modelling! Kind regards, Joachim
  9. Very convincing Spit and, as others have remarked, the invasion stripes really 'make' the model. Inspiring work! Kind regards, Joachim
  10. Every once in a while, in among all those more or less worthy efforts to model a Spitfire, comes a piece of artistry that actually looks like the real thing. Bravo! Kind regards, Joachim
  11. Really excellent build and conversion! The camouflage is interesting as well, although to my eyes, the pre/post shading looks more like oversprayed additional cammo than any representation of real-life weathering. Superb job with that venerable old kit! Kind regards, Joachim
  12. What was that expression again… er, yes: WOW! Kind regards, Joachim
  13. Wish I'd thought of that a couple of models ago. Pure genius trick, thank you! Kind regards, Joachim
  14. Beautiful rendering of this Monogram classic. The perfect cockpit hood framing really dots the i:s. An enviable display of modelling skills! Kind regards, Joachim
  15. That's an amazing piece of modelling! In fact, my jaw dropped when I realised that it's not 1:32 or even 1:48, but Braille scale. In a word, superb. Kind regards, Joachim
