      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. nowadays most enthusiasts don't see further than the jets, but it is worth making the point that for every jet in service by March/April 1945, the Luftwaffe was deploying antiquated biplanes or obsolescent ab initio type trainers in numbers in combat. These flew primarily in the night ground attack Nachtschlacht or 'tank-hunting' Panzerknacker roles. With training schools closed and no fuel these types did not demand much in the way of piloting skills or require much gasolene. It was even planned to re-equip the III. Gruppe of the 'famed' Junkers Ju 87-equipped Schlachtgeschwader 2 with these machines.
  2. according to Bedfordshire Police twitter feed, the recovery may have caused some chaos
  3. join Facebook. Get the app on your phone and Ipad. Upload from your phone directly to your "messenger" on FB. Retrieve it on your ipad via the FB app. Shrink it by simply taking a "screen copy" (press on/off button and the large button at the same time). Goes straight to your 'photos'. There are probably even simpler ways
  4. JG 4 machine. Mombeek is the JG 4 authority. Very neat build and finish ..
  5. would you happen to know the UK postage on an Aussie Eight combo box (including 104-page book) Mike please ?
  6. brilliant - especially the 'stand' and the 'parts rack'
  7. just a quick thought - you can bring up small 'low-res' copies of your PB photos already posted here and then save them by doing a google image search- eg search 'Tony o'Toole Britmodeller' on images and they should all appear...
  8. Hi Max ..long time no speak. Here's a few JG 300 'wilde Sau' G-5/6 scheme options G-5s 'white 1' and 'white 4' with Naxos G-6 'white 7' of 1. Staffel with exhaust stack shroud ( and possibly whistle) Closer view of a JG 300 G-6 exhaust stack flame shroud with Eberspächer acoustic pipe or 'whistle' over the leading ejector. These ‘whistles’ provided an audible alarm signal to alert an airfield and its flak batteries that a wilde Sau night fighter was operating in the vicinity G-6/R6
  9. yes, I mentioned google in a previous post (page 2, whatever happened to post numbers?). Start a blog. http://www.blogger.com You don't even have to 'publish' stuff. Just load the pics you want to copy here, get the HTML code (SRC=" ...jpg") and put it into the 'insert other media' box when posting here.
  10. ..quick suggestion - start a 'google' blog - ...blogspot.co.uk. Free, loads of space. Upload your images to create a 'post', all the HTML is done for you but you can edit too (if you know what you're doing) From the HTML screen in your blog take the image code ('src' ) and post it into the 'insert other media' box when posting here. Free hosting. Put your blog links in your signature here too. And write stuff if you've a mind to. Or not. Simples.
  11. Tony, can I suggest you start a google blog ? (..blogspot.co.uk) You get your 'own' space' and it is simply a question of loading your images into a 'post'. From the HTML screen within each post, you can simply take the image code and put in it into the "insert other media" box when creating a post here. It really is very easy ..and still free, at least a couple of Gigs worth
  12. Wasn't quick enough for the five sets of plastic parts for 15 euros, but did snaffle a deluxe boxing - two sets of parts, etch and resin for 28 euros. Looking forward to getting it on the bench
  13. ....don't Airfix manufacture in India or have I got that wrong? very nice looking Emil - you got the strengthening strips on both sides of the fuselage, I'm sure they weren't on my starter pack..
  14. seen how much tennis there is on the BBC at the moment ? Eastbourne, Queens, Wombledon - now there's an 'elitist' event getting wall-to-wall coverage on the Beeb. The plebs even have to watch from the grass outside
