      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. At 1/350, Atlantic Models ATK 35058 HMS Hesperus 'H' Class Destroyer is a good choice. Link here http://atlanticmodels.net/white ensign range kits/index.html
  2. MDC produced a conversion for the Tamiya Kits. I'm certain the position of the scoops was outlined in the instructions
  3. I have raised this problem several times, in various threads. and like others, I have received no response from Martin. The website is still active, and his facebook account is still active - he was online just a couple of days ago. Martin may have had personal problems to contend with, but it takes little to respond to people with some explanation. Still hoping to get hold of one of the VC10's
  4. Hi, is anyone planning to issue a folding tail conversion and upgrade for the Airfix HC.3 to make the Royal Navy HC.4?
  5. I'll watch this with interest. Got a Sangar one on half, and a Fonderie one in the " must get round to that" cupboard.
  6. There is an Airkit conversion AIR064 available on that other site (401320722682). Don't know how good or accurate it is. I notice that there is also a PJ PRODUCTIONS 1/72 721108 HAWKER HUNTER CONVERSIONS set for sale from the same source (40132072288)
  7. First Airfix kit I helped build was the Ferguson Tractor, back when Pontius was still a pilot. Used my mother's clear nail varnish as glue - Dad got rocks for that one! The first "solo" build was the original blue plastic Spitfire.
  8. I think it should be 781 Sqadron in "Green Parrot" scheme - and don't forget the cocktail bar!
  9. Or you could try a Mirage offering in 1/350?
  10. I've got a few pictures of RN Skyraiders with some interesting graffiti - can't remember where I downloaded them from, but you are welcome to them along with some "walkround pics of the Swedish plane. Send me a PM if interested. Dave PS. Here is a link on the web to those pictures : http://skyraider.org/skyassn/memberpics/cowell/cowell.htm
  11. I've got a few pictures of RN Skyraiders with some interesting graffiti - can't remember where I downloaded them from, but you are welcome to them along with some "walkround pics of the Swedish plane. Send me a PM if interested. Dave
  12. But it doesn't rust, and provided you take the same precautions as you would with resin or similar materials, it's fine. Dave
  13. Yes, got no reply. Had intermittent contact via Facebook messenger.
  14. August 2015 is a bit outside the time limit for Paypal I think! I did think that I had some rapport with Martin, and accepted his reasons for the initial delay. Now all I can do is wait and hope. I have raised this topic several times on Britmodeller, but it is generally ignored!
  15. Hi Wally, If you go to his main page, then select Model Kits (4), Model Kits 1/72 (4), you then come to a page with 4 thumbnails for the proposed kits. Click on any and you will go to that item and at the bottom of the description you will see the words "This product will be available soon". I hope you have some success - I think a fairly large number of people are waiting!! (In my case getting on for almostt two years) http://www.rammodels.co.uk/product_info.php/products_id/344
