      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. It's because Ebay likes to make sellers offer freepost in their own country's but that just makes them add the postage cost onto item prices, so when you buy 2 items, you pay 2 lots of post, 3 items, 3 lots of post. The best is that they don't have anyway of combining it or have an easy way of refunding for excess postage. Ebay are very good at finding ways of making more money off sellers and I would always advise people should see if Ebay sellers have their own websites and buy from them there. thanks Mike
  2. Combination price, free shipping is a lie as any sender has to pay for it. thanks Mike
  3. Sellers on here offer them for even less. thanks Mike
  4. Check out the vendors that advertise on here, some will offer VAT free shopping, which will save you a few £'s on the kit price at least. You can get them a lot cheaper. thanks Mike
  5. There's more cheap Eduard kits added today in 1/72 and 1/48. In 1/48 the following have been added - Bell X-1 Profipack, Bf109G-6 Early Profipack, Avia B.354 Serie III Profipack and Albatros D.V Weekend In 1/72 we have the follow added - Fw190A-8 Profipack and Bf110G-2 Weekend. This means we have all the Fw190 Profipacks in stock for an average price of around £10 each! We also still have the Aussie 8 Spitfire set and Fw190/Spitfire and Avia B.354 Royal Class sets in real cheap! http://www.mjwmodels.co.uk thanks Mike
  6. We've just had some aerobatic team flying around practising for the Sunderland airshow. Sounded like a load of flying garden strimmers! thanks Mike
  7. We've got some new Hataka Paint sets in stock today that might interest some folks! We have the 8 colour sets for Post War RAF Trainers, ideal for Hawks, Gnats, Tucanos and Chipmunks, plus a set for post war RAF and British Army military vehicles, which covers everything from the early Centurions up to Challenger II's (inc Desert camou), Land Rovers, Warriors etc. There's also a brand new 6 colour set for the Sukhoi Su-33 Flanker D, which there are many models of! It possibly could be used on other modern Russian Navy aircraft (experts will know this!). thanks Mike
  8. It'll probably be available quite cheap here in the UK if you wait a while, then you'll only pay UK post and have no fear of any import expenses. thanks Mike
  9. Shame it isn't a late war Enterprise, as Trumpeter's forthcoming kit could well be early war too. The late war one had many changes including a bulged hull. thanks Mike
  10. You can get them cheaper than Ebay. You should check out the vendors that advertise on here, you can get better deals. thanks Mike
  11. Did you get them less the VAT? If not there could well be cheaper options. thanks Mike
  12. We've restocked in time for the weekend with cheap 1/72 Eduard Royal Class Spitfire sets plus we've bagged a much cheaper than normal Aussie 8 set as we ran out of them a week or so ago. Also just in are Sword's 1/72 Fiat G.55 double kit, RF-80 Shooting Star and P-80A/B kits. http//www.mjwmodels.co.uk thanks Mike
  13. No worries! I thought that's what you probably meant but there are other RAF sets and I didn't want to assume. We'll have a look then! thanks Mike
  14. Duly noted! thanks Mike
  15. Which RAF set? thanks Mike
