      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. wow only 19 had signed it when I sign about an hour ago.
  2. In the On Target Guide No 9 Battle of Britain, pages 122 to 129 there is a full explanation of the Luftwaffe Bar markings which seem to have been applied in early September and were used to help the bomber formations to form up. A number of crashed bombers have been recorded as carrying these markings.
  3. MY local one has good stocks of recent Airfix, so so stocks of Revell a few |Tamiya tanks but I popped in for paint yesterday and aw it had had a re stock of Italeri, including Stirlings and both boxings of the Sunderland. So guess stocking must depend on sales//management policy/phase of the moon.
  4. Just in the first one. I know, I wrote it oh so many years ago. I think the article is still valid as there have ben no new 1/72nd scale kits of the flatiron since, just re-pops.
  5. Great work as usual, you are certainly turning them out to a high standard.
  6. Neither can I.
  7. Ditto for the Spitfires and IMAX, I really liked the way the French contribution wasn't forgotten and the lack of Germans just the random bullets and the aircraft added to the helplessness the soldiers must have felt. I liked the way the threads were drawn together meeting up at the end which would have been difficult to do in chronological order. Must have been a good film SWMBO obeyed was quiet all the way through.
  8. I was given this as a present by a friend, who though all my other AFVs were 1/56th scale unfortunately he was wrong s I work in 1/48th and the size difference is obvious if you compare two of the same type. However I haven't got a Stug so I decided to give it a crack and use it to practice weathering. I still don't think I've made it worn and filfthy enough. Anyway here it is. I'll probably change the figure for a better moulded one the first chance I get.
  9. Lovely work, the Caunter scheme is tough to pull off , have done it justice.
  10. Nice work as always and don't talk yourself down on the figure painting.
  11. Lovely work Ian, as always. It is a really well fitting kit and if you put a revel Dog fuselage half against the Kilo it is as close as the naked eye can see the same thickness. The rumour I heard was that the Kilo fuselage was designed by RoG but they then realised that the Luftwaffe never flew Kilos with the 'short' wing' ( though a number were delivered) which would have meant more tooling costs for the extend wing. This was too much for the accountants so they shelved the idea. Someone was selling the test shots on a well know auction site a few years ago. If any of the above is true I don't know, but I'd love to know. Keep 'em coming young man.
  12. Lovely work, looks like you had the second boxing, did the camera windows fit without any modification? I ask as I had one of the original boxings and most of the windows were too large.
  13. I can still see them
  14. Yes it does need re-releasing, but I scour model shows for them and have a couple still in the stash. The kit swap at Telford has yielded a few recently as well.
  15. That's lovely work, I'll watch this with interest as I've just started the same kit.
