      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. finally plucked up the courage to have a go at this.so far the main bugbear has been the heavy sprue gates,but the strange plastic and lack of colour details have also been problems.according to the paint instructions,the chassis,transmissionengine,are all olive drab;is this correct?
  2. i think the main problem is the canopies.they wash away at the edges and become undersize;being clear,you cant restore them with filler
  3. which,by consensus among S.C.W. modellers,is an appropriate grey?even the eduard instructions are vague,quoting rlm02 or rlm 63.rlm o2 certainly looks too dark to me
  4. revell/special hobby seafire xv
  5. i think the mac 34 was basically the infantry chatelerault mod 24 with a side mounted drum replacing the vertical box magazine,and the butt removed.don't know if anyone makes 48 french infantry weapons,aeroclub made a 72 ac 34 so might be worth checking to see if they made a 48 version
  6. 1s pursuit(snowy owls)
  7. can anyone please suggest a suitable olive green for a prewar p26?and would it be gloss finish
  8. I think revell have upped their decals considerably(possibly cartograf?)but i have the icm do215,and the decals look better quality than their older releaSES
  9. saw this on ebay,6.99 freepost.is the 72nd a misprint?it appears on the box also!
  10. MB5

    just picked the az kit up at the mpm shop in prague;looks very nice.the sheer size of it next to a spitfire is unbelievable.
  11. i have used a slightly different method;prime with white acrylic spray,acoat of finished colour,(it doesn't need to be all that thick or opaque)then ru down with scotchbrite
  12. hi,going to prague for a weekend in a couple of weeks.does anyone please know of a fairly central model shop,open on a saturday,where i could pick up some eduard overtrees?
  13. i struggle with masking;now i tend to paint with acrylic over the clear parts and reove unwanted paint after 24 hours with a matchstik trimmed to a chisel edge.
  14. i have the 48th revell kit.the boxing includes the ventral turret,but no details of the spanish bomer variant.could anyone please help with a source for the building and paint instructions for the earlier kit,which included these details
