      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. That just looks right, I like that
  2. The Puma has been ignored by just about every manufacturer for far too long, IMO Italeri with the success of their Wessex range will cash in with it. Must be 1:48 The Herc needs updating and reintroducing in 1:72 Love the idea of Airfix going for gold with a 60's/70's/80's Fleet Air Arm range. The new Phantom is a good start, Buccaneer's, Gannets, Wessex, Sea King, you get the idea.
  3. A thing of beauty, fantastic effort, fantastic.
  4. I love this scheme, very well done, love it.
  5. all gone blank, damn, one of my favourite planes in my favourite scheme too
  6. How nice is it to see a Phantom on the cover of the catalogue
  7. 1:48 of course
  8. Did anyone follow the twitter thin? basically, 2017 is mainly re tools, big hint on Vulcan.
  9. I don't know whether to get this or the Phantom Its catch22 see what i did there
  10. Its proof of one of two things, maybe both. Firstly nagging does work. Or is it the power of prayer, mine from the airfix phantom thread Our Phantom who art in Hannants Airfix be thou name Thy stash be done Thy will be done in cammo as it is in heaven Give us this year our annual demand and forgive us our rantings As we forgive you for not doing one before and lead us not unto ebay but deliver us from bidding For thine is the FGR2 the Spey, the Alcock and Brown Forever the best Airfix
  11. I'm thrilled and devastated at the same time to see this GB. Thrilld as I love all thing whirly and devastated because my kit building days are over. We downsized in the Summer and there simply isn't the room, the price of financial independence LOL. I passed on 2 Italeri 1:48 HU 5's to my nephew from my now defunct stash, I'd have been torn between 2 tone green Northern Ireland or blue and red Culdrose. Looking forward to seeing all the masterpieces, give it hell boys
