      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. Yesterday , on the road from Hereford to Brecon , a red 1950's Chevrolet estate towing a modern caravan , not something you see every day . Andrew
  2. Oldest kit in my " strategic reserve " is probably the 1/48 Tamiya Lancaster, that I bought at an IPMS Nationals at Donnington Park about 25 years ago at least, cost about £23. Along with the Paragon Lincoln conversion it will be built one day. Andrew
  3. There's something not quite right with the cab of this model , not figured it out completely yet , but the main fault is the windscreen . It should be rectangular , but the kits screen tapers at the sides , which is definitely not correct. Andrew
  4. Nothing in Brecon , except Clarks , a very nice toyshop which occasionally has a few models. There is the Abergavenny Model shop, not very big ,but carries a nice range of modelling products .
  5. A nice looking Jaguar XJS in blue , reg. N2 XJS , in Hereford
  6. I remember seeing a similar collection some years ago , also made by a serving RAF airman , they were carved from solid wood with canopies carved from solid pieces of perspex from real aircraft canopies. Paints came from RAF stocks and could therefore be considered authentic. I often wonder where these models are today. Andrew
  7. Yes Jon , I've had the same with the last tin I bought , never had the problem before.
  8. Neither , the Hunter was either powered by a Sapphire or an Avon.
  9. you need card that's fairly substantial for bulkheads , so I would use at least 30 or 40 thou at the minimum.
  10. A very nice W registered yellow Triumph 1500 in Brecon today , you don't see many of those these days.
  11. It's the injection moulded version with cast metal struts.
  12. Another kit rescued from the shelf of doom, Aeroclub 1/48 Tiger moth started some time ago . It was intended to be a Tiger Moth of the pre-war CFS display team but was abandoned after painting had started , when I discovered that the actual aircraft was a single seater. I decided to restart it after seeing pictures of G-ANNI , a current Tiger Moth in the same CFS colour scheme. Model in finished in Halfords rattle can paint with decals from Xtradecal and Fantasy Printshop Andrew
  14. Found a couple of pics showing my Spitfire Vc conversion from the Airfix Vb, You can see how close the fit of the Eduard upper wing is to the Airfix kit, Andrew
  15. The Eduard upper wing is virtually interchangeable with the Airfix wing, almost a perfect fit. Andrew
