      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. Looking forward to this version and hope that it is easier to built than the original eduard one.
  2. Come on Wez ,remember what are sprung slats for.? To deploy at times when the aircraft is close to stalling to lower the speed at which a stall would occur. Those slats that you have seen deployed on the ground are due to sticking rails, lack of servicing or Biggles stressing the frame. They should not be deployed in normal operation as they cause drag.
  3. New Theme

    Well done Simon and chaps, its very refreshing update.
  4. I would to see in 1/48 Meteor trainer/night fighter Hunter both single and twins Vampire any mark Venom any mark Hampden and in 1/72 Lincoln Most of the above would have great mileage for Airfix and see multiple purchases. Just think of how many Sqaudrons used the first four in my list.
  5. You get 9/10 for that. Only 9 cos you beat me to building this subject. Fishface
  6. Hello Gundylunch Can we come along please to your show, I am not working and would like to support your model show. Simon Fisher Abingdon IPMS
  7. Ah yes I remember going onboard her back then, I have still got the pamflet with all the tail numbers on, oh what memories. GREAT TIMES.
  8. I think you'll find that at least in RAF the SWO has no jurisdiction on the flight line, as seen in these pictures of Su-33's. He asks if he may come onto the flight line, I have been asked by a few over the years, if they may have look around I would normally ask an SAC to escort such an important person, so the he would not get into trouble being run over by an aircraft. By the way a CPO in the navy is approximately staff Sgt or WO 2 in The Army or a Chief Tech in RAF.
  9. OK that would be great, thanks.
  10. Looks very good Jonners, enjoy Spain. Awaiting the decals. Sammy
  11. Well done there looks very good indeed. I have a MkII 3/4 built, but oh boy what a difficult build. Top part of the wing 2-3mm wider in chord than the bottom part of the wing. Cockpit to wide to fit between undercarriage bay walls and there's more. Rear decking is not supplied for the version that I am modelling, but it is in the instructions. Again well done Manu
  12. Thank you for sharing your excellent selection of photographs. If only we could see such diversity of subjects these days. Instead we have very little to be cheerful about. Oh those halcyon days of old. We can only but dream off.
  13. I am sorry but I have never taken any pictures of the inside of the cockpit or cabin. Just go for a dark grey for the majourty of the cabin, although the fabric on the seats is a very dark/dull washed out blue. Inside of the cabin doors are black. 

  14. The internals for the Mk2 are the same as before with little change that modeller will notice. It is in the normal dark sea grey and black colours. Sorry never have taken many pictures of the inside. Sammy ex 33Sqn and 230Sqn for over twenty five years.
