      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 very much, Mike. Looks like they only ship to Europe, though. I'll wait until some come into stock at my usual suppliers - I really should finish a couple of other cars first anyway!
  2. Is that why Hiroboy has now sold out? 😥 Cant find anyone else who has them apart from Plamoz themselves, and I tried ordering from Plamoz but the website can't calculate postage - possibly means no stock?
  3. I'll take a wild guess and say it's MFH and 1/9 Edit: Check the tags on the post title - I've not noticed them in the past!
  4. Lovely!
  5. This has just popped up on Hiroboy: http://www.hiroboy.com/112_Kawasaki_Ninja_H2R_DetailUP_Set_For_Tamiya_14131_PreOrder--product--11204.html
  6. Some painting of the bodywork today. All Tamiya TS sprays. Gloss black, metallic gold and clear orange. I forgot to do the doors at the same time (sigh) so I hope they come out the same colour. I'll do the roof in carbon fibre.
  7. And now some detail parts, including a better engine cover with mesh grilles instead of decals. http://plamoz.com/products/124-570s-photo-etched-detail-up-parts-set
  8. Excellent! Please post a work-in-progress for both. I'm sure the bike nuts on here will appreciate them. I will, especially as it's a new Tamiya 1/6 kit and the Morbidelli is an unknown bike (and kit maker) to me. Hope your wallet recovers soon.
  9. Nice job CWT. Love the choice of colour too!
  10. Despite having 3 other cars not yet finished I decided to try and get the paint on the body of the Mac. Just primer so far. Can't decide on carbon fibre or paint for the roof. I'd better check how much cf decal I have as the one provided with the kit is not correct, it's printed as one piece, when the real car has a join in the middle. I've also painted the real light lenses with clear red and put some chrome on the back so the stand out a bit when fixed on the black rear panel.
  11. Sorry, Codge, I misinterpreted your post. Not sure why they were painted, it does seem a bit odd for something that's going to be hit with a hammer, even a soft faced one. I wonder if it was just that particular car, or a fad at the time?
  12. It must be expensive. Looking forward to the new one - movie and soundtrack. I enjoyed the Arrival soundtrack.
  13. Nope, for some reason they were black on the car in the movie (but not the restored car, where they are bare aluminium). From Octane magazine...
  14. @Pete in Lincs I like your owl. It's artificial?
