      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 Paul A slight correction if I may, this was a kit that was due to be produced for White Ensign Models but will now be produced under the Atlantic Models label by Starling Models, if that makes sense! I'm conscious of how many people want to build this iconic Royal Navy ship, so I will do my best to keep the price as reasonable as I can. Mike
  2. Interesting that I can't recall any artwork of Japanese ships sinking, is there any? Mike
  3. Starling Models have just released a set of railings that includes the type you are looking for I think. Pre-dreadnought railings Mike
  4. New in stock is the 1/350 HMS / HMAS Vendetta from Showcase Models of Australia. This is a new, full hull, injection plastic kit with etched brass parts and an extensive decal sheet. It can be built as either HMS Vendetta in WW1 service, or as transferred to the RAN. An excellent kit all round, it looks like it will build into a superb model, price is £40 from Starling Models - HMS / HMAS Vendetta Mike
  5. We have the new Wingnut Wings Sopwith Camel kits back in stock, price is £65 for any of the single kits and £152 for the Duellist kit with LVG CVI, although this latter has sold out already so more stock will be on its way soon. Go to our website Starling Models Mike
  6. Yes I'll be taking a few. Mike
  7. I have two volumes of this I could be persuaded to part with if anyone is interested? Mike
  8. Hi, Good news and not so good on this one. L'Arsenal will be releasing their resin upgrade set which will include new weapons and boats which will be a great improvement on the kit parts. In terms of not so good, with the Eduard set being released most of what I was intending to produce was already replicated in there, so reluctantly I decided not to continue with the etch side of the set. With the L'Arsenal set it would mean that not all of the Eduard etch sets would be required, I think a combination will result in a very good upgrade of the pretty basic kit. Mike
  9. The forthcoming Wingnut WIngs Sopwith Camel kits are available for pre-order from Starling Models, expected delivery is mid to late March. Order yours now at £65 for the standard Camel kits and £152 for the Camel and LVG CVI duellists set. Starling Models Mike
  10. Our first stocks of wingnut wings kits will be arriving shortly and are available for pre-order. We offer very competitive prices and fast delivery as a UK based supplier. The new Sopwith Camel kits are available for pre-order now and are expected in Mid to late March, to secure yours you can make your order on our online shop at Starling Models Mike
  11. Interesting, I was thinking vaguely of doing a 1/350 scale kit to fit in with the Aoshima Thunderbird series. Will be interested to see how it turns out. I have a small business that sells resin ships and kits so have access to casters and etch production. Mike
  12. Around 5 pounds in the UK for the smaller models then varies, you can check the exact price by going to the shop website. Mike
  13. Starling Models will soon be stocking Wingnut Wings 1/32 Great War aircraft kits, we expect the first to arrive within the next couple of weeks. We will hold a smallish stock of kits with most being available on back order, which will normally be fulfilled within 10-14 days. All of the currently available stock will be available, including the new Sopwith Camel kits when they are released. Best of all, our prices will be very competitive, the Camel kits will be 65 pounds the same for the Fokker eindekker series, SE.5, Pfalz DIIIa and other single seat fighters, Bristol fighter, Roland CII, Albatros BII, DH.9a 95 pounds, FE.2b, DFW C.V and Rumpler C.IV 105 pounds with the Felixstowe 216 pounds. These are just some sample prices from the range. Visit http://www.starling-models.co.uk to see the available range and place your pre-order or email info@starling-models.co.uk for more information. Mike
  14. Haruna and Hiei are on the box side. Mike
  15. Just in is the Kongo 1914 from Kajika and a superb kit it is too. Kajika is a new brand that is part of Flyhawk that produces Japanese subjects. The good news is that the kit is every bit as good as we have come to expect from Flyhawk, superb detail, incredibly crisp moulding and great attention to detail. There are a range of accessory sets to complement the kit, all are now available in limited quantities in the shop. If you want to have a closer look there are more photos of the kit in the new blog section of the shop homepage, go to www.starling-models.co.uk and scroll down the page a little.
