      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. This morning the back of 10 there was a Merlin, Puma and Chinook over Edinburgh, the Merlin flew on while the Puma circled and the Chinook landed at what looked like Dreghorn Barracks from where I was, then 5 mins or so later took of and both headed south. Graham
  2. The company I work for here in Edinburgh amongst other things delivers the radar for the Typhoon and the company posted on out web site a video of the 500th Typhoon being delivered to the Italian Airforce on the 11th of April, not the big numbers first being banded around but slowly getting there. Graham
  3. Hi, any idea when the B17 will be available ( I have one on backorder) as I see Wonderland models are now showing them in stock as of yesterday. Thanks Graham
  4. 4 high flying jets flying in a loose finger 4 rapidly heading south over Edinburgh, heard the rumble but they were to high to see what type they were. Graham
  5. Good news, as I work on the laser for the pod and it stands at 1000+ delivered and counting. Graham
  6. Still plodding away. Graham
  7. I am sure there was a Chinook over Edinburgh about 04:20 this morning and then again about 05:20 heading back south. Graham
  8. Hi guys, I work for a company formally known as Ferranti and I have worked in the Laser Systems Dept since finishing my apprenticeship way back in 83. We have provided systems for many aircraft and land systems such as Tornado, Harrier, Jaguar, C130 ect, when the Jags retired we bought back the LRMTS’s that were fitted to them. Some were refurbished while others were marked for scrap, so between contacts and other modelling message boards I have “saved” 4 from the axe man to date. They have went far and wide from Edinburgh, the furthest is Melbourne in Australia. The LRMTS’s have been refitted to 1 Harrier GR3 and 3 Jag GR1/3’s and they are as follows: RAF Manston Museum Jag XZ106. Bentwaters Cold War Museum Jag XX741. Bentwaters Cold War Museum Harrier ZD667 Paul Cunningham’s Jag XX977 Melbourne Australia The following selection of pictures show the Harrier (top) and Jag heads together and in their new homes.

  9. A bit more progress, fuselage together, tail feathers done and all dry fitted. Drilled out the spinners and fitted the prop blades using the UMM prop jig which was a breeze to use and now the brutish good looks are showing through. Graham
  10. Engines on, there are no markings on the cowlings where the intales and exhaust go so an old set of plans from SAM and Mk I eyeball then fingers crossed. Graham
  11. Fitted the Eduard lower flaps, phew. Graham
  12. Decided to have another crack at this and things are moving along nicely for the moment. and a mock up with the herc engines perched on Cheers Graham
  13. Hi guys looking at fitting the Eduard flaps to my Tamiya Lanc is it better to fit the flat flap parts C and D into the upper wing before adding the small detail parts, just thinking it would be easier to get them flat against the wing and can you drop fit the undercarriage in after fitting the engines? Thanks Graham
  14. Hi Paul, if I can get my Lanc anywhere as good as yours I will be a happy chappie indeed. Graham
  15. Changes done doh I have started one and at the engine stage but there are 2 ridges on the cowling but the small diagram has the flat spot as the top so unsure why they are there and they don't match up with the exhausts. So Troy any added info would be appreciated and I can't believe there are no builds of this. Cheers Graham
