      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. Toryu = Dragon killer !!! Love it . Deffo at the top of my list for swag
  2. Made me really angry this no doubt a lot of other people too . It's going to mess up some seriously good content on a lot of forums. I won't pay out of principal now , how they went about this is pure extortion. I too am off to find Flickr or imgur .
  3. The track looks great Matt . Looks like it was fun , they fit really well and have a nice realistic sag for plastic tracks .
  4. Thank you sir I'm looking forward to it. Ah yes the tracks. I admit one of my favourites too ! Nothing I find more satisfying than a good set of workable tracks especially if I do t have to buy them as aftermarket .
  5. Well Merk... I wish my first model had turned out as nice as that . You are definitely heading in the right direction. Don't be afraid to post more photos we like a good shufty . As suggested try adding some highlights next time but other than that. Top notch for a first build sir . Jim.
  6. Nice Matt ! Great chouce sir. It looks like stunning kit despite the moaning I hear from some other modellers, about lack of engine and other minor gripes. I think Revosys Should be heartily applauded for this kit. Should have mine in a couple of days can't wait to tackle it . Watching with interest . Jim.
  7. Like it Mike ! And a huge thanks to Simon . Jim.
  8. no pics here either I'm afraid but I'm sure its awesome ! Maybe as you said, so darned awesome it broke the tinterwebs thingy.
  9. Superb work , and an awesome looking beast . I really like your etch work especially with those ERA blocks and brackets . I like also your subtle colour modulation and dusty look . top marks !
  10. Yes its definitely a sickness of the mind .
  11. Thank you sir for the kind words . Jim.
  12. Looks like a great kit . Some very nice details there.
  13. You did it perfectly my opinion mate .
  14. Francis a fantastic job , I really love the red earth effect and the dusty look carrying the same tones .Exactly how I imagine it to look if it was right there in Vietnam . " Charlie don't surf ! "
  15. Another fine work Francis but I do have a soft spot for all things Tiger especially Sturmies
