      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. This is turning into a very nice little model! Martian
  2. I wouldn't say Nigel's food was quite that bad! As to the colour scheme, what's wrong with it? Martian
  3. There you go guys, straight from the oracle! Martian
  4. I just checked out images the SH 1/72 Roc. It looks to be a far better product than the 1/48 effort and should give you very little trouble. Go get one, build it and then regale us with how wrong my assessment of the kit was! Martian
  5. The Lanc is beautiful but the NAAFI van is a little gem in it's own right. In fact, I would go so far as to suggest that it is a potential competition winner. Martian
  6. You should find Postimage pretty straightforward. After all, I managed it! Martian
  7. Thanks CC. It is a while since I saw a picture of a pre 700A squadron Sea Harrier. The jet powered B-26 looks interesting....No! someone save me from myself! No update today. I woke in the middle of the night stone deaf in my right ear which was full of blood. The doctor says she doesn't think it is any thing serious but it has left me feeling pretty queasy, balance problem I guess. More soon I hope. Subdued of Mars
  8. Keep at it Ced. I can already see that the replacement parts are going to make a massive improvement in the appearance of your model. Martian
  9. The model is beginning to look rather handsome Bill and I never thought I would find myself saying that about any F-111. Martian
  10. Sounds interesting. I can feel one of these kits making it's way to Martian Towers in the very near future! Martian
  11. Thanks Nick, that is reassuring to know. Based on my experience with the rest of the kit, I would be very surprised if Special Hobby have re-tooled the engine and cowling. Strange the results of your research on the Roc, nearly all the pictures I have show the opposite to be the case. The plot thickens! Martian
  12. Highly impressive and original! Martian
  13. I am surprised he wasn't entering one of his recipes in the competition! Strangely enough despite looking for him at Telford each year, I have never actually got to meet him. It is entirely possible of course that he has been hiding form me, many people do! I love the Who allusion. Thanks CC, there is a way to yet but hopefully it will help you with your build. Thanks Massimo. Even in 1/72 I wouldn't have turned that one down. Thanks Scimitar, I ha seen the picture but the article is interesting. Martian
  14. That rather depends on how Mrs Bill feels about weathering. Martian
  15. Come on, out with it! Martian
