      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. Well spotted Daz. I've been looking forward to this. just hope I can afford it. XL612 from ETPS for me. richc
  2. Yeah probably sensible really. Good tip. I use that for silicone sealant, didn't know it worked on Latex. As usual BM teaches me something again. rich
  3. I'm sure a certain visitor will see to it that you don't , not that they make ninjas in that size . rich
  4. Nice to see you back to modelling Dan, but I hate to point this out at a critical moment, it's a helicopter. Seriously it's good to see you back fettling the old plastic, and as always looking to see what magic you'll weave. rich
  5. Look forward to it daktari. rich
  6. Aren't we drifting a little away from daktari's original post? Right now to sit down with and .. I'll provide the beer Troffa, you the popcorn, fair? rich
  7. I guess it's a possibility Vallejo have got it wrong! Please don't tell me you are relying on those photos that come from an unknown source, where we don't know if the white balance was correctly set. Not forgetting ambient light conditions on the day, and I'll bet you aren't using a calibrated monitor. The short of it is the pics cannot be used as a definitive reference, and as Mike has said Bobski knows this plane, so if he says it's Barley grey, it is! richc
  8. Wouldn't arf look good yellow . rich
  9. Tis an interesting question. I've done a bit more digging and it doesn't look as if ammonia will do it. It's used as an anti coagulant in liquid latex, not a solvent. One quote I found said that acetone doesn't work as his latex gloves survived. What he may not realise is the acetone will go almost straight through into his skin, and hence blood stream. Whoever it was needs to coma and work in our lab where latex gloves were used until H&S said we can't. The acetone made the gloves fall apart quite literally. Maybe I should have been clearer. The Latex does not re-dissolve, it just breaks down and can be gradually removed, but as I and Pigsty said, the brush isn't much use for anything other than masking fluid application again. I had the same brush I used for years in my previous modelling spat, just made sure it was cleaned after each use with cellulose thinners. richc
  10. It's not on the site yet for some reason. A quick warning! Just checked it out in an editing program and it DOES NOT scale for 1/48th like all the others yet. I guess that's in the works before it appears on the site. rich
  11. I've used cellulose thinners or acetone in the past to get the dried latex out. It's a tough messy job, and you must wear appropriate gloves (Nitrile, thick). To be honest the brush will never be much use for anything other than applying latex again. If you keep some cellulose thinners about and clean the brush straight away it will be usable over and over again for application of masking fluid, but very litle else. richc
  12. Damn you Andy. You've done it again! Leave my wallet alone......... The sharks mouth intakes scheme is awesome, so I guess these are next on the list, along with the wheels. The only thing that concerns me is the fact the decals are matt. I have never had any luck with matt decals. They've always seemed to be made of cardboard with no adhesive properties whatsoever! Do you have any previous experience of this companies products? richc
  13. Cheers for the review Mike. It's a nice little? kit isn't it. I'm just waiting for the E-2C+ with the Dowty blades. richc
  14. Good God Shaun, I thought you'd been abducted! Nice to see you are still at it. looking very good there mate. Not too much to do now . rich
  15. Certainly gets confusing all this re-boxing, especially when the same company re-boxes two different kits of the same subject at different times. rich
