      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. Great to see you back Mark. Very neat re-scribing on the Vulcan, the panel lines really show up with some paint on. I give the Tamiya tape a , it's great around a curvy fuselage, although I've never tried it for the actual camo demarcation. gazza l
  2. Thanks Ade, I was quite pleased with the Flanker, the sun decided to make an appearance as soon as it lined up on the runway which helped. Wow 2000, that's an awful lot of editing. I think I only managed 400 shots over the two days. Cheers, I'll put a few more up once they've been tweaked.
  3. Eduard's 1/48th Bf109F-4 with the Eduard resin engine and gun bay set. Flown by Lt. Hans-Joachim Marseille, North Africa 1942. gazza l
  4. Hi everyone. I haven't been able to keep up with this WIP thread of late, mainly because of the Photobucket fiasco and also because my PC packed up. So here it is completed, weathered with oil washes and pastel chalks and finished with Alclad semi matt varnish Thanks for looking, gazza l
  5. Spent the Sunday at RIAT and stayed Monday for the departures. The weather on Sunday wasn't great with a few rain showers late in the afternoon, although this apparently was an improvement on Saturdays weather... Monday, typically, perfect weather. Thanks for looking, gazza l
  6. Some great shots there, particularly like the panning shots and the Mirage 2000. gazza l
  7. Stunning work... are you sure those photos aren't of the real thing? Amazed, gazza l
  8. Lovely work on both of them, but the Lufthansa scheme is my favourite. gazza l
  9. Well done for completing it, I've felt your pain over the last few weeks, but to be honest it's turned out very well. Considering you brush painted it looks as good as any airbrushed finish. I was keen to get my G version started but I think I will put it on the backburner for a while! gazza l
  10. Excellent work all round, the photography makes it look a very realistic dio... also the figures are a stunning addition. gazza l
  11. Sorry to see you are having more problems, it's a nightmare when the decals go wrong, but to be honest it's all looking pretty good... don't give up at this late stage. gazza l
  12. Brilliant job, you've really brought a quite basic kit, in regards to detailing, to life... your hard work has certainly paid off. gazza l
  13. Stunning work, weathering beautifully executed. Does this kit have the same fit issues as the 1/48th kits? gazza l
  14. Hi all. Some more progress this week, the canopy is on and I've finally finished the problematic engine so this has been masked off in preparation for painting. So it begins with a patchy coat of Alclad white primer to act as the pre-shading. The Hellblau was then masked off and some pre-shading on the upper surfaces applied, this time I experimented and tried out some Alclad sepia. Finally for today the top colour RLM 79, this was then post shaded with a slightly lightened mix and applied the the centre of the panels to give it a subtle faded look. As always, thanks for looking. gazza l
  15. Well despite the fit issues your having it seems to be coming on nicely. Just out of interest I done a dry run of my G-4,s nacelles this evening and they don't seem too bad, just a large gap at the rear where they meet the flaps. gazza l
