      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. Hi there Chooka, welcome to Britmodeller.
  2. Andy, if you go to Wingnut Wings site (wingnutwings.com), you can see their very comprehensive colour guide they have in their instructions for the Bristol Fighter.
  3. Hi Chris, welcome to Britmodeller.
  4. Hi there Mario, welcome to Britmodeller.
  5. Hi there Ian, Welcome to Britmodeller.
  6. Hi there Zagor, welcome to Britmodeller.
  7. Was fortunate to be working for Tickford Aston Martin at the 88 Le Mans, the atmosphere was amazing. The noise the big Jags made coming onto the Mulsanne straight was truly awesome.
  8. I know (read) that Hitler had no real appetite for invading Britain, but at the very least the RAF fighting the Luftwaffe to a point where it would have been very problematic for them to attempt it was massive. Air supremacy for the Luftwaffe over Southern England would have made it all but impossible for the US to get a foothold in Britain, no D-Day, no liberation of Europe etc. Can't wait tbh, always get quite choked up thinking what those days and weeks must have been like for those young men. Remember reading in a book that there was a Spitfire landed at an airfield but just kept rolling gradually coming to a stop as the ground crew caught up with him. The pilot was asleep, completely exhausted.
  9. Hi Mário, welcome to Britmodeller.
  10. Hi there BlueNoser, welcome to Britmodeller.
  11. Hi Juergen, welcome to Britmodeller.
  12. Hi there Crane, welcome to Britmodeller, The Tamiya Spitfire is still a great kit, a few issues but fits together great. Look forward to seeing you around the forums.
  13. I always hoped they would go on to do another series of Blackadder based on the Battle of Britain.
  14. Hi there Michel, welcome to Britmodeller.
  15. Made some progress over yesterday and today, through to step 17 on the instructions. Cockpit done; Painted Helmut up and installed him into his seat; Got the fuselage buttoned up and the prop together; Should get some more done next week.
