      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. 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.
  2. 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.
  3. Lovely work, the Caunter scheme is tough to pull off , have done it justice.
  4. Nice work as always and don't talk yourself down on the figure painting.
  5. I got the dreaded ransom demand for Photobucket so I'm trying a new provider this is just a test
  6. 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.
  7. 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.
  8. I can still see them
  9. 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.
  10. Here is my latest, it is yet another Revell Monogram F-86D, this time from the 324th FIS. Superscale decals and four colour metallic from various sources. Thanks for looking Just finished this a the Photobucket ransom started so lets see how long Flikr lasts.
  11. That's lovely work, I'll watch this with interest as I've just started the same kit.
  12. Don't Don't forget the multi million dollar golden goodbye he/she will get.
  13. But it will keep their accountants happy... for a while.
  14. Another cracker Tony, great history as usual with your builds. I always feel I've learnt something
  15. The Meadowhall, Sheffield one had a good restock of Airfix recently and still has a fair stock of Revell and some Tamiya.
  16. Two smashing models, nice vision sir.
  17. Either way it is a super model.
  18. That's lovely, well done for persevering with it. Which Aeroclub Moth is it? The vac-form the injection moulded with metal struts or the latest version with etch struts? All are fun builds but each has its quirks.
  19. Another example of your lovely work. Also one of my favourite units
  20. Simply stunning.
  21. Welcome aboard I hope you enjoy your time here a much as I do. There is an IPMS branch in the area as well, if you want details let me know.
  22. Lovely Hunter, it must have been 'interesting getting it back on one piece'. We have recently returned from a holiday in Borneo and really enjoyed the place and the people.
  23. Looks like a grand day out. I hadn't realised there were so many taxi-able machines there.
  24. i built one last year in the same scheme last year and really enjoyed it. I'll be watching you have fun with it.
  25. https://www.amazon.co.uk/Uniforms-Waterloo-Colour-18th-June/dp/0713707143/ref=sr_1_2?s=books&ie=UTF8&qid=1496995006&sr=1-2&keywords=uniforms+of+Waterloo I don't know what the postage to Australia would be. I'd go for the hard back, I've had mine sine 1977 and it is still in good condition. I have a wargamming friend who bought it on my recommendation abut got the paperback and it is dropping to pieces after a couple of years.
