      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 drive past Lakenheath every day. I will be building a stripy F-15A but now I'm thinking I should also be building a modern Lakenheath jet.
  2. Excellent! Do you have a photo of him in cap and gown, with a great big cheesy grin? They're the best.
  3. There's the important word. FUN
  4. nodnodnod Wot 'e sed!
  5. In addition to the Airfix kit, in The Stash I have two each of the Hasegawa and Heller kits. I had thought of building all three as Old School builds. But that would mean eight builds in this GB which is just sheer madness!
  6. A family portrait. Say fromage! Oh... and an Airfix kit has photobombed the group. I have robbed the centreline bomb rack from the Airfix kit to use on the Ecuadorean aircraft. When I came to look properly at the Airfix kit, which has been in The Stash for about twenty years, it seemed to be quite nice and deserved to be built. So that is now progressing as an Old School build. I'll open another thread for that one.
  7. No box to show for the single seaters as they are "simple kits". No box, resin or decals. No a problem. I can get the resin and decals elsewhere. LF Models provide a resin nose and decals for the F1AZ. The Ecuadorian F1JA will use an Xtradecal sheet. The single seater cockpit before the fuselage halves are joined. The first run of this kit had a damaged cockpit coaming on the port fuselage half. As I am doing a lot of surgery on the nose of the F1AZ, I used one of the damaged kits. The F1JA (top) uses the kit parts. The F1AZ (bottom) has the kit nose parts cut down drastically with the LF Models resin part added. The damaged area will be repaired by judicious use of Green Stuff. Further work will be necessary when the windscreen is fitted.
  8. Okay, let's get started. Here is the F1B box with its striking artwork. The fuselage and extra cockpit components come on a pair of new sprues. The Xtradecal sheet which I will be using. Built straight from the box, here is the F1B before the fuselage halves are joined. And the airframe assembled.

  11. Oh dear! I thought I had updated this thread a bit more than... well.. nothing. My build is complete. If no one objects, I'll put some photos up in the gallery and then update this thread tomorrow.
  12. The welcome message and rules will appear here.
  13. Post your reference information here. Please note if posting artwork or photos you must either be the copyright holder or have the copyright holder's permission to post.
  14. Post your completed builds here. No more than five photos per entry. Please do not post comments in this thread. All comments should go in the subject's build thread
  15. Welcome to the F-15 STGB, I am your Host PhantomBigStu who Im sure many know me by now The Group build will start on the 29 July and will end on the 29 October Rules are nice and simple, only F-15's allowed, all variants welcome, unlikely to be done but that included the proposed Silent Eagle Welcome. As for schemes as per other GB's no What if's allowed, though as I said the markings applied to the F-15SE mockup would count as a 'real' scheme. Aftermarket parts and starchbuilding of course welcome. All builds must have a Work in progress section with the build forum. If your attempting multiple builds they can of course go in one thread. As per all GB's a reminder to not post comments in the Gallery, instead put them in the models WIP. No trading as ever within the GB forum, that can go in the forums main trading section. The 25% Rule applies as ever, though I'm a little flexible with that as I have a F15 at a similar stage and will be allowing that in, if in doubt just ask me or the group build supreme overlord Enzo Matrix. Biggest rule though is to have fun Think that covers it Look forward to seeing all the eagles take shape
