      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. Just magic. My all time favourite racing CSR in the best scheme it ever wore. So much to like. Steve.
  2. Nice. Beaut modelling, lovely paint scheme. Just magic. Whose/what intermediate blue did you use. I like it. Steve.
  3. Modeldecal sheet md114 has them, oop now but come up on eBay occasionally & The Aviationshop.co.za shows them in stock. Sorry, on phone so not very good at links. Steve.
  4. I think Kiwi resin has just brought out a conversion for the Helmet Dragon Rapids of the military version with the tail fillet. I didn't take too much notice but now I have seen this again, I must have another look. I'll post a link if I can on my phone. Steve. http://www.kiwiresin.com/_p/prd1/4636008201/product/de-havilland-89m-military-rapide.-(coming-soon)
  5. I tried to like your Oshkosk post but I've done my 50 for the day so I LIKE it but would have been well peed at the unannounced no show of the A400. Is that a F-86A, hard for me to see with all that shininess. Steve.
  6. I'm enjoying re-visiting these old threads Jerzy, keep them coming. Steve.
  7. I'm pleased to see the 767 NAS option in the markings, the 10 ton budgie makes an attractively different finish to the 892 NAS which I'm guessing will be most peoples pick. Saves me having to track down a Fujimi kit so marked or buy the old Modeldecal sheet with it on. Steve.
  8. I've several HP planes in stock but have been unaware of this one before. I can see the need to liberate one sometime soon. I fancy a camo'd FAC version. In the meantime, I'll kick back & enjoy watching yours come together. Steve.
  9. Something I'd not picked up & not obvious from your heading photo John, is that this appears to be a single seater, something new to me for these. I'm wondering how that lone pilot found his way during what must have been a precision mission, some more research required . I'm enjoying watching this come together. I may never feel the need to build one, the same as I never want to be a secret agent but I like James Bond movies I guess. Steve.
  10. That is looking good Ken. I've hummed & hahhed about buying one of these, the dodgy politics of the owners not withstanding, both kits seemed to have issues but you seem to be making the ones on this kit seem not insurmountable. I can see a NEED forming up in the wings. Steve.
  11. Good start. I'm keen to see how this goes together, seeing as I have one in stock. Whose markings will you use? You'll need to be moving pretty quick on this with the end of the GB coming up quite fast. Steve.
  12. Thanks all for the input, I've managed some improvement with a lit of tidying of files, scans, etc but still much slower than it was, #2 son who has started an iIT course has suggested RAM may be dicky, cheap enough to buy another stick of that but I 've decided to buy a second hand box running W7, with enough grunt to take an update to 10, hopefully see me for a year or 3. Steve.
  13. Good call, I lack the courage to try something like this for a GB but will be keen to follow yours. Steve.
  14. Stunning + +, stunning model, stunning paint job. There is a lot to like in that. Steve.
  15. Really nice Steve. I do like the North African look & I do like how you've caught it. At least one of mine is destined for a similar finish. Steve.
