      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 Guys, I don't think I want to be a member, my beautiful Husband was, my Derek Burton, for many years. It gives me a kind of closure talking to you guys though, although I haven't got a clue what you are talking about. I remember the good old days, Dek trying to teach me about planes, me, sitting there, nodding, then asking him if he would like me to show him how to knit. We went to Silverstone on a couple of occasions, until it became way too expensive, I remember, the first time we went, man, was it raining, or what, but this Hurricane plane sort off went over us. I can not explain the emotion I felt, it was very powerful. I do like planes, but really haven't got the patience to build one. Quite apart from anything else, I have no idea how to put a photo on! For all the people who knew my Dek, please don't forget him. Greetings from his crazy wife, never a widow. Angie xx

    Hi Guys. It has taken a long time, and a lot of courage, to find this site and post this. I don't know how many of you knew my beautiful Husband, Derek Burton, he had a massive cardiac arrest on 15th December 2014, he, eventually, died on 24th December, he was braindead. My Boy was only 54, and it has been a hard journey, we were together for nearly thirty years. I have given stuff to charity, but in respect of his magazines, books and models, I hesitate, because I would like them to go to people who share his hobby. I will prepare a list of some of my Dek's stuff over the coming week. I will sell at a reasonable price, but all purchases must be picked up in person, cash in hand, I need to see that people care about his stuff. If nobody is interested, that's fine, I will keep everything, but I would like to think that some of his things would make somebody happy. I have got magazines from the 70's, etc, as I said, I will send a list. Whoever remembers him, please don't forget my Dek. Thank you. Angie, Dek's Wife, never a Widow x
  3. slack to the back,same track. slack to the frunt other ???? Dek.
  4. So are we saying follow the instructions ? Dek.
  5. I agree with Simon in post #5, there are really good quality photos of Spitfires that to me show areas around the gun ports to be perfectly square with a perfect circle in the middle no evidence of a ridge on the edge of the red portion and no sign of a fired through patch. There is good photo of this in Sarkar Battle of Britain the photographic kaleidoscope on page 109. Dek.
  6. I had dodgy instructions in my box, double printed and missing pages, got a new set within a week. Dek.
  7. That scheme is on RAFDEC sheet 7208 from Hannants 2 left. Dek.
  8. Thanks for that Tim. Dek.
  9. I have been thinking of picking up a few of the above as they are cheaper than the Eduard masks. Q is has anyone used them and how do they compare to the Eduard masks. Thanks in advance. Dek. P.S. not that Eduard make masks for the Az kit.
  10. Yes I have ordered one for the rag wing Hurricane and one for the Az Spit MkIX not that I will use them straight away. Dek.
  11. and just had mail from Hannants, paper. Dek.
  12. Just been trawling the net again for info on these masks, on the Modelimex site there are pics of the product and they do appear to be "yellow" paper. Dek.
  13. seems there is now a mask for the Az Mk IX and still need to know if these are paper or vinyl, no one brought any yet? Cheers Dek. P.S. just mailed the big H about them if I get a reply will post it.
  14. Yep in the 262 bible (classic ) its a retractable tail wheel. Dek.
  15. Just seen these on Hannants site, anyone have any experience with these, are they paper/vinyl? Cheers Dek.
