      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. I think this is the best way to sell them. Get product liability insurance and sell them on online or via ebay.
  2. We are now stocking all the tools from the RP-Toolz range. Scale leaf punches, etch bending tools, quite a few different punch sets, handle benders, etch rollers.......etc. Some great value for money, some wonderfully thought through and not available from other manufacturers. See them on our stand at shows, or buy online. RP Toolz available from modellingtools.co.uk Thanks, Paul
  3. Friday, went to the post office, nice clean Ferrari F40 joining in with the pre-rush hour traffic, then a few minutes later saw a very tidy looking DB5 parked in one of the back streets. Then this morning went outside to ding a Hyundai Coupe stuck in the hedge over the road.
  4. Hi, I've finally managed to get the full RP Toolz range onto the website and double checked the prices. Some tool prices have changed when I checked them this evening with the current exchange rate. The 300mm Bending tool is one of those and has gone up by £5 to £60, but at least one tool has come down by more than that. RP Toolz available at modellingtools.co.uk Thanks, Paul
  5. OK, paint if building up somewhere, for some reason. My money is on the tip of the needle. if the tip is damaged it can collect paint, when you start the air flowing this will splatter and then spray normally. Also check that you have a matched set of needle, nozzle and air cap. And check the hole at the end of the nozzle cap is clear of paint. Paul
  6. We now have 1mm, 2mm and 4mm pens in stock as well as the 30ml refills. Hope to have spare nibs available with our next delivery. http://www.modellingtools.co.uk/molotow-390-c.asp Thanks, Paul
  7. Hi, Have you been in contact with Alclad about the problem it could just be a duff batch. Paul
  8. The first one is the lowest I would go. It doesn't give any details on the airbrushes. They should be able to cope with those paints as long as you use the correct thinning and cleaning routine. It all depends what you are expecting achieve with this set.... are you looking for overall paint schemes, fine detail painting or somewhere in between? Paul
  9. Hi, Finally we have the JHmodels Jigs back in stock. Current prices... small monoplane is £18, large monplane is £23, small biplane £20 large biplane £26 all plus P&P The extra large monoplane jig is available to order, current price is £35, contact us direct. Thanks, Paul

  13. Hi, What airbrush do you have ? Paul
  14. Have you tried PTFE tape on the airbrush thread ? If it's just a bit loose this would be the first thing I would try. Paasche have their own thread size, you can connect it to a standard 1/8th hose that you usually get with chinese compressors. The simplest way yo connect them would be with quick release connectors, the male part for the paasche brush and female part that fits to the larger standard 1/8th hose. http://www.modellingtools.co.uk/quick-release-male-27mm-to-female-for-paasche-3566-p.asp http://www.modellingtools.co.uk/quick-release-27mm-to-18-m--for-18th-hose-104403-3554-p.asp Hope that helps, Paul
  15. Show is in a couple of weeks, so we are in the advanced planning / floorplan / panic... phase at the moment. Looks like it's going to be be a good turn out. We should have two trophies this year Best in show and best K-9 So if anyone have a K-9 of any type to trundle around or display, bring him along and you could possibly win the trophy ! More details on the website: http://www.hamex.co.uk/ Ta, Paul
