      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.

  2. Hi Dave, The half track is most probably an M5 (lend lease M3 with welded armour). Armoured cars are a mix of Daimler Mk II's (smaller ac's with rounded turrets, some of which seem to have the littlejohn adapter fitted), AEC armoured cars (larger slab sided turret), along with a ferret and a dingo. Hope that helps H
  3. 2: They can't seem to stay away from the old Broadcasting House, even with its overtones of serial Savile (and others) abuse, even after selling the damn place. Can I just point out that BBC Television Centre (The one they sold, and a listed building, so might have had problems demolishing it) and Broadcasting House are different buildings. As for Dr Who, can we really have too much? What do we get on average 10 or so episodes a year? Would rather that than yet another bloody celebrity/talent show.
  4. I think we might be reading too much into the shell case. Let's not forget this is knocked out vehicle, so has probably been picked over for souvenirs or anything useful. Position of the shell casing suggests to me that is has just been dropped there rather than having been kept for any reason. Still can't see the German helmet.
  5. A cracking build of a ship that many of us have been lucky enough to have the chance to visit.
  6. Good on you.
  7. No it doesn't, it's your hobby and your model so do what you want to. Look on the bright side at a price of £80-£90 adding on a set of AM barrels is hardly going to break the bank.
  8. The more I see of this the more impressed I am. Yes, it is the wrong scale for me, but I imagine it as the centre piece if my display surrounded by 1/72 WW2 RAF models. Yes, it has limited colour schemes, but then again I magine most will only buy one or two so what is the problem? Is it too big? Of course it isn't. Looking back I used to have a couple of B-36's in my bedroom. Now that was big.... As for the price, well as a football fan it is tickets for me and the Mrs. for one game, or a film and a meal afterwards. Compare that with the hours of fun you will have building this beauty. So Airfix, you introduced me to this wonderful hobby, and now you have given me new hope for the future. Thanks.
  9. WOW. Love it........
  10. I think the large box is a 6pdr ammo box (the strange wavy line gives it away) Not the clearest picture: Not sure if it is in a rack, though I have seen racks on British Shermans in that position, will see if I can dig out a picture. No idea why the Breech Guard has been removed. As far as I am aware command tanks were still armed, you might be confusing them with the RHA forward observer tanks. Hope this helps.
  11. Some good stuff here. http://www.zonamilitar.com.ar/foros/threads/historia-de-los-supermarine-spitfire-en-argentina.17669/
  12. OM W is a Mk IV as well, BL-200 was I think built in 1944 and modified post war as well, so I wonder if the windows weren't added at this time....
  13. I wonder if BL-200 doesn't have a non standard gunners hatch (like the restored example). None of the pictures I have seen seem to show a window. Of course being a hatch it does have the annoying habit of being open in the majority of decent photos taken on the ground.....
  14. Those of us who work at Donauwörth, Ottobrunn, Kassel, Albacete and Madrid might not agree with that........
  15. A decent Gladiator for less than £8, what is there to moan about. Keep it up Airfix.....
