      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. Nice to see you Barry coming to the dark side brilliant job as always. Cheers Libor
  2. Hello Roman, really fine looking Wimpy, good job on the painting - it looks very convincing! Those individual bomb doors must be a pain, but I guess the result was worth the effort! Cheers Libor
  3. Many thanks to everyone for kind comments! Fuad: the clear parts were polished with fine mesh cloths, but the canopies were already moulded very clear indeed. Steve: thank you, sir :-) Roman: that's a good observation, I could flatten the tyres a bit! Next time I'll pay better attention to it. Cheers Libor
  4. Hi fellow modellers, this is one of my latest additions for the upcoming Valiant Wings title AIR WAR OVER ITALY, the Special Hobby kit built with some updates in the markings of the Aviazione Cobelligerante Italiana. Cheers Libor
  5. No changes are planned, the tooling is done and plastic moulded in usual quantity. I have the sprues since January for instance.
  6. Taken on the light from the depths of this forum, but I'm glad you still like it! Nicofigueira: THIS ONE Cheers Libor
  7. Thanks everyone for comments again, appreciated! Cheers Libor
  8. Thanks chaps, glad you like them! Ridge runner: yes, these are different propellers, the B-36 got the broader type. Cheers Libor
  9. Hello gentleman, we have the Valiant Wings part 2 book dedicated to Mosquito fighter versions coming soon, so here is my 1/72 scale build selection done for it: 1. Tamiya Mk VI converted to post war Czechoslovak B-36 2. Hasegawa NF Mk II built as 'Night Intruder' flown by the Czechoslovak WWII top scoring ace Karel Kuttelwascher 3. Hasegawa FB Mk XVIII 'Tse-Tse' Cheers Libor
  10. Hello Roman, really nice job on this handsome plane and congrats on finishing the kit, I suggest it could not be the easiest build! Cheers Libor
  11. Hey Gabor, what does "Pan Sulc" mean please? .-) Thanks Libor
  12. This is the ex- Vista tooling indeed with set of resin wheels and some etched bits. The differences between MkI and II as the larger radiator hausing for instance and others, are obviously not addressed.
  13. This KP kit is the ex- Vista kit. Cheers Libor
  14. Thanks everyone for comments, glad you like them! Winenut: good luck with yours, pretty cool scheme too:-) cheers Libor
  15. Thanks gents for kind comments! Jean: yes, I can confirm that. I only replaced the RP's as they looked a bit crude. Troy: thanks pointing this out, I'm aware about that. I simply followed the DP Casper instructions without too much stress. Cheers Libor
