      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. Of course, I'm ready to contribute P.S. This was an answer to a legitimate (I.M.O.) question if I'm ready to pay for additional storage.
  2. This raises the old question - why can't we host the photos ourselves as most of modelling resources do? AWS storage is cheap, Invision has all the means of uploading/managing photos, maybe it's time to reconsider old policies?
  3. Newly scribed panel lines
  4. [Host hat on] I am the one At the moment I have a feeling that this build does not fit well in this GB unless either of first three prototypes (Type 392, 398 or 513) will be represented. This intention was not clearly indicated hence the doubts [Host hat off]
  5. I have doubts that this one being a production machine is legit for this GB
  6. I should not have blindly trusted the assembly sheet. This photo is clearly showing the mistakes I made so despite the premature announcement the build is not over yet
  7. I don't see why not. Welcome on board! OR you can still join "Prototypes" GB - the choice is yours
  8. Burn the bridges down! Started with these 5 degrees
  9. I use postimage only if I don't build on other resources.
  10. The problem is that this forum does not host the photos like others do that is an annoyance and I don't see any rationale for this - cloud space is very cheap nowadays. I don't put photos one-by-one, I post somewhere else and then just copy-paste. For example, this thread http://www.britmodeller.com/forums/index.php?/topic/235018670-planet-models-bolokhvitinov-s-1-complete/ is an exact copy of this one http://www.greenmats.club/topic/3063-planet-models-болохвитинов-с-1/ except that I translate everything in English
  11. Personally I find it easier to navigate through thumbnails when the number of photos in a post exceeds three that is usually the case in my builds
  12. 1/72 Planet Models Bolokhvitinov S-1 resin kit. NB: THESE ARE NOT THE FINAL PHOTOS as I found some significant inaccuracies that I'm going to fix very shortly WIP and more pics: http://www.britmodeller.com/forums/index.php?/topic/235018670-planet-models-bolokhvitinov-s-1/#comment-2709103
  13. Overall - a good quality resin kit with few minor problems The canopy was a bit too wide so I had to squeeze it, I also replaced vacformed transparent belly hatch with a piece of CD cover. A bit overdone with the weathering but I don't have inspiration to have it redone so this is it
