      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 can take part in this GB within a GB. I have the MA ark royal sheet which has everything that flew on her.
  2. Count mwe in with a 1/72 SH Firefly mk.1
  3. Hi tony, welcome aboard. This is the older tooling i think they have released a new refined tooling i.e narrower panel lines but im not a rivet counter and so will build as it comes. i have toyed with sanding them completely down but there isnt sufficient plastic in some areas especially the wings which you can see 'through' if held up to the light.
  4. mmm undecided at the moment so gladly consider a request. Quite like the 2 tone grey extended camo version but then i like a bit of colour.
  5. I was toying with building it alongside the older E version of the Haseg kit (recessed panel line one) with the wolfpack conversion as i have done one on here before, but ill see how i go.
  6. I shall be in with the new 1/72 GWH F-15E.
  7. Please add me in, probab;y start with a couple of cats.
  8. Hi Tony, Get a used Tamiya cement bottle with brush. Get a bottle of industrial MEK from ebay. Add sprue a good one, not one that has pigment and add to desired thickness.
  9. mmm, Sunderland, catalina or something japanese or French aerovonale or a russian Tu-TB-1P.
  10. Prop and U/C assembled after tidying up which is required especially the prop.

The joys of spruglue is that is cures to a plasitc holding u/c in place firmly over tamiya cement or poly cement. Superglue will just bond rather than melt u/c in place.

  11. Right update time. Next up Koolhoven Cockpit floor, seat and undercarridge with PE fret. DSC_0014 (1) by stuart wellard, on Flickr Fuselage halves and pit painted grey., weather and IP panel constructed with back panel, Plastic IP dials and the PE panel. DSC_0015 (1) by stuart wellard, on Flickr Wings cemented after clean up. Fuselage halves cemented using 'spruglue' DSC_0016 (1) by stuart wellard, on Flickr Not the greates of fit at the wing root, still sprueglu will fix that. DSC_0017 (1) by stuart wellard, on Flickr PUR engine after clean up ready for the rods which are very small and fiddly. DSC_0018 (1) by stuart wellard, on Flickr Engine after rods glued. DSC_0019 (1) by stuart wellard, on Flickr Fuselage and wing 'rig' with sprueglue cementing it alltogether. DSC_0020 (1) by stuart wellard, on Flickr Post drying time with touchup with sprueglue on the spine. DSC_0021 by stuart wellard, on Flickr Test fitting the engine in its hole. A little fettling but she fits at least. DSC_0022 by stuart wellard, on Flickr Or there abouts, with a little persuasion DSC_0023 by stuart wellard, on Flickr Stabiliser braces, well they dont have the angles at the tips to fit nicely to the fuselage and underside of the sab, but with a little sanding to the required angle I got them to fit ok, cemented in place with sprueglu so that i can sand delicately aroudn the buutt join to creat the 'bump'. We are modellers after all. DSC_0024 by stuart wellard, on Flickr
  12. Im in with something floaty
  13. Thanks guys, much appreciated. There is somethign about swing wing aircraft. I must finish my Tu-160 at some point. She in the current static park needing final sanding before priming and painting.
  14. Lovely Tony, do you have a build thread for this?
