      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. Thanks for your best wishes, being a very small Enterprise I have to focus on the Customers and put them first. With this particular kit I always knew that I would probably not get them in the numbers that I would have wanted so had to make a choice whether to just make it first come, first served or to look after the guys who have become regulars. These fine folks have put their faith in me to supply them with WnW kits and have returned time and again for more so I felt an obligation to give them first refusal. As I said above if I can get more then I will happily open them up to general sales Duncan B
  2. Non clumping bacon! Personally I like the smell of bacon so wouldn't appreciate this new fangled odour absorbing type either. Duncan B
  3. The Jasta 5 release is going to be in very limited numbers apparently. My Distributor has been told that they will not get all the stock they have ordered. This is why I have not opened them up for pre-orders on my Website as I am unsure if I will get all the stock I have ordered from the Distributor (trouble flows downhill does it not) so do not want to over sell. I have offered my most regular WnW customers first option to buy and will have to wait to see how many more of the kits I can get before being able to open them up for general sales. I know this will be a big disappointment for some folk however it would be a lot worse if I were to take orders that I would not be able to fulfil and those folk then missed out on the opportunity to get the kit from another supplier. If I am able to get more of the kits then I will be shouting it loud from the rooftops so let's see how many turn up. (for those who have been offered and have accepted, the invoices will be winging their way to you once I get notification of the kits heading my way). Duncan B BlackMike Models
  4. Practice, practice, practice is the only decent advice I can give you with regards to airbrushing however the Xtreme Metals are pre-thinned so that takes one variable out of the magic equation (AK Interactive had a decent guide to using their Xtreme metal paint on their website which states best working pressure and general tips for using the stuff, honestly these are extremely easy paints to use). The other important thing when working with metal finishes (whether airbrushing or not) is surface preparation, if you can see a mark, scratch etc by eye before painting NMF it's going to look 10 times worse with the paint on. A good primer on a good surface is essential so don't take shortcuts with the prep work. I'm sure you knew all that already but it might help someone else out. Hope that helps Duncan B
  5. They are designed for airbrush only as they are very thin (but still provide amazing coverage). I haven't tried brush painting them so don't know if that would work or not. Duncan B

  7. That's a beauty, well done. AK Xtreme Metal paints are now my go to paints for metallics, so easy to use. Duncan B
  8. We don't see too many of the Tarangus Viggens built up. I guess it's due to them not being that common on the LMS shelves. Very well done on your build and top marks for the paint job. Duncan B
