      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. My "42" has arrived,had a quick look and its the same high standard,but have to finish other ships first.
  2. Dream come true,at last
  3. Taken from F.B. Starling Models We are very pleased to announce that in the production stage is a kit from Atlantic Models of HMS Ark Royal 1978 in 1/700 scale. This kit has been long awaited by many modellers, it will be produced by Starling Models for Atlantic Models with a release at the IPMS Telford show in November. Photos of the main hull and superstructure parts dry fitted, the kit will also include photoetch and CAD designed Phantom, Buccaneer, Gannet, Wessex and Sea King aircraft, which will also be available separately. At present no price has been set for the kit and pre-orders are not being taken at present. More news will be available in the coming months as production advances. This kit will only be available in 1/700 scale. Taken from Atlantic Models You might all be aware by now of the progress being made towards the coming release of ATK70020 HMS Ark Royal IV in 1/700 scale. These kits are from patterns originally made for WEM a fair few years ago and never got beyond the pattern stage. I am now finishing off the job and drawing up the Photo Etch for the ship and aircraft and will also be doing the usual assembly instructions. Mike McCabe at Starling Models has kindly taken charge of the production and sales side of these kits, being among the 1/700 scale kits in the White Ensign Range. All further news and announcements regarding the Ark will be coming from Mike. What out for more news.

  11. These models coming from Flyhawk are in a different league .The kit is just superb,it comes with everything you need except the the wooden deck which I have bought.The masts are very thin,I,m going with then,to see how they go,but might have to change to bass.Watch J1 this is a small part ,and yes lost it already,however ,were it went, no one will know. .
