      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. We went to see it last night. I thought it was excellent. And yes, Harry Stiles was pretty good to. I was quite surprised to see that most of the people in the audience were of my generation, 30's, I just expected the audience to be a a bit older. Top film and good flying scenes. James
  2. Thanks Stu Believe it or not I did know that, just having a slow day....... James
  3. At the risk of sounding very stupid what does TSS mean?
  4. Hi everyone I'd also like to join in with this one. I now need to choose between a Hellcat and a Corsair, both in gloss sea blue?? Thanks James
  5. I'm in! James
  6. Great pics, thanks for sharing. I didn't realise there was a U-2 still flying! Thanks James
  7. Hi everyone This has probably been discussed here before but can anyone tell me if it's possible in terms of fit to use the Hobbyboss Hellcat wings with the fuselage of the Eduard kit to get a model with folded wings. Thanks James
  8. Fantastic work, I will try riveting very soon. By the way, what brand of airbrush are you using? I know of course that it's the hands using the tool rather than the tool itself but am just curious. Thanks James
  9. Totally agree with Ben Dunnell. Shame about Berlin Express. I doubt that means she'll be flying tomorrow either. James
  10. Thanks for posting. These pics wet the appetite nicely. Im taking my son (4) tomorrow for his first airshow. Hopefully he'll enjoy it, not sure how much flying I'll get to watch though. I know what you mean about the French commentator. He does flying legends every year as I'm sure you're aware. He's ok but........ James
  11. Nice work Plasto I built one of these kits a few years back and seem to remember thinking that it stacked up ok against the Hasegawa kits. Look forward to seeing more progress. James
