      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 order my kits directly from the site. They take PAYPAL so it makes it easy for me to purchase the kits I like. I just recently order the On Mark Marksman conversion as well as the Conroy Tri-Turbo Polair DC-3 conversions. I believe I got my kits in two weeks to the USA. Walter
  2. Thanks very much for the great links fellows. Classic Plane has the conversion http://www.classic-plane-mrr.de/listen/classicplane.html CPi18 Junkers F-24 (single engined G-24 Airliner) 17,98 euros Walter
  3. The one I have in the stash is just like this one; http://www.oldmodelkits.com/index.php?detail=7845&page=62 When I get home I will compare the plastic to the Revell kit Walter
  4. Very nicely done G-24 JW! I had no idea Reifra did the G-24 and the G-23. I have a 1/72 KVZ Junkers G-23 / G-24 - Swiss or Swedish Airlines in the stash somewhere. Is that the same as the VEB kit? Love those F.13's as well. Walter
  5. Outstanding customer service, great product! You can not go wrong with Vintage Decals. Walter
  6. 1/48 Scale will be super nice!
  7. I really like the wing spar design! Walter
  8. Darren welcome to the club! I also plan to build "ALL" my models, I just need another lifetime to do so. And why do I keep buying kits? Cause I can! PAS models are indeed very nice, I do not have the AN-32 "yet" but I love the PAS TU-114. On my last visit to Moscow, Andrey personally deliver several modes to my hotel. Talk about great customer care!!! Walter
  9. Nigel, The Heller/Airfix 1/72 Concorde is one of the hardest (injection) models I have done. I almost flew it into the wall more than once. Now when I walk into my model room and look at her sexy lines I am so glad I finished that monster. Do buy one half ton of putty, you will need it! Good luck and don't give up! Walter http://www.airlinercafe.com/forums.php?m=posts&p=29773#29773
  10. There most be a communications issue going on here cause NAZCA decals, Gaston, is very reliable and very honest man. He does have a job, airline captain, that keeps him very very busy. Continue communicating with him and I am sure you will have the issue resolved. I have been buying decals from Gaston for over 10 years with no issues at all. As a matter of fact, I just received the 777-300 AA decals I ordered from him 15 days ago. Walter
  11. Mika, why would Constanza create newly built masters that are identical to Gremlin models? Just wondering?
  12. In 2005 I was in contact with Aleksa from Gremlin models. I bought his entire line of GA kits. I really like them. I think Constanza models got the masters. You can find the 335 and some other models in the Aviation Megastore site.
  13. Julien, Liberty Quality Models has an excellent line of commuter 1/72 scale models. Highly recommended and secure source! http://www.libertyquality.com.br/
  14. I am now battling to finish the Heller 1/72 Concorde. It is such a shame that the kit is by far one of the worst 1/72 kits I have ever build. No respect for Concorde!!! I am going to finish mine "travel agency" style. I am not worry about detail, just paint, decal and done. The fit of ALL parts is horrible. I probably have used already two tubes of Tamiya putty. I will be matting the engine nacelles to the wing in the next few days, I will let you know how mine works out. Any one seen the 1/48 Concorde?
  15. Gremlin Models made the Cheyenne I II III and IV. He sold his masters a few years ago. Very nice fellow he is. I believe Constanza kits has the masters since they are already doing the Twin Cessna line. http://www.ipmsdeutschland.de/FirstLook/Constanza_Kit/Cessna_335_340/Constanza_Cessna_335_340.html
