      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. I know what you mean. Rick was dead chuffed that he won the Best in Show competition. We didn't vote on our own club's models as we were not sure if it was allowed.
  2. And thanks to all for hosting a great little show. Mick
  3. That is good work on detailing the interior - on a par with 1/48 kits. Mick
  4. looks great so far. It is a lovely kit to build, I have made two so far and have a third to convert into a Sea Mosquito. Mick
  5. It's looking great and in such a striking scheme. Mick
  6. OK thanks. Jumping in on your reply to Devo, I formed the guns for my Fokker Eindecker using the Small Shop Brass Assist rolling tool. It makes a difficult task easy and is not limited to just the cooling jackets. There are various diameter size rods in the set used with an aluminium block that has about half a dozen half moon slots milled into it. Mick
  7. Great idea with the prop I shall have to try that on my Albatros when I build it. Mick
  8. Great progress , it looks fantastic so far, love the detail on the engine. Bye the way what paint did you use for the guns, it looks spot on? Mick
  9. Thanks to all who came along and supported our show and made it such a great day. It was good to chat to fellow BM'ers and thanks to all who had a punt on the Tombola. Well done Ozzy on your win . I learned a good lesson from the show - don't bid on a kit on ebay before checking out what is at the show! I now am the owner of TWO Airfix 1/48 Harrier GR 3s. If anyone enjoyed a piece of the Red Velvet cake - I made that. If you didn't like it - the wife made it! Mick
  10. Great looking Dragonfly. mick
  11. I'll be there running the Tombola! Don't forget to buy some tickets.
  12. Very impressive, what a great looking model and in such an interesting scheme too. Mick
