      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. There appear to be optional wing tips including the folded ones. And a fin without the fin top RWR. Also I like that the underwing serial placements show both types of application inboardof the outer wing tip and over it. I found in my slides RAF ones with both types.
  2. Suits me! In the right BIA colours too so I can depict the example I flew in for my 'flown in collection'! The DHC-8 tooo!!! Smashing! And Skyvan.....hmmm!
  3. From the 26 Decals package, the RODEN 1/144th Bristol Britannia G_AOVJ of Caledonian Airways 196 60's. Decals by 26 Decals.
  4. Final pics and then completed pics in Gallery. Props all painted up ready for fitting. The strange pitots are added as oo the 'towel rail antenna.' the left over decals. The 26 Decals fitted the kit so well that all the window openings on the decal fitted the kit spot on and so no need to use the supplied decals by 26. The only down side I find with them are, for laser print, they are a bit thin and the base colour shows through so painting has to be done accurately to give a good base to the decals. In general though, they are rather nice. Pics of finished build over in gallery.
  5. ... This time to Montreal and Ottawa. Been to Ottawa before and look forward for a chance to visit the CASM at Rockcliffe again! Fantastic collection of aircraft there! Will have to do some homework on seeing what Montreal has on offer...
  6. Its just down to showing their age.. we're all going grey. For a long time now since the end of colourful unit markings(other than specials) Modern military have lost their appeal to me.
  7. Interesting reading and pics. Very nice ones too.
  8. Looking nice. A shame that Italeri illustrate a proper RAF/RCAF Harvard on the box lid showing the longer looking rear portion of the canopy but in plastic its the standard U.S type.
  9. Hmm. I too am reluctant about hosting I did one once but ..... Am hoping someone will do it who has had better experience. Also, I noticed after my post that it had been suggested already . Strange there has been a strong lack of interest by the many members. As for rules or whatever, normal GB rules would apply but as for subject matter I would have thought it be kept strictly to pure Royal Air Force RAuxAF ATC, WAAF WRAF any thing used operationally by the RAF be it aeroplanes boats vehicles missiles all from April 1st 1918 to present day. Exceptions being testing of foreign captured stuff not used regularly or whifs. I can't think of any other exclusions unless maybe someone bright out there can come up with something to avoid getting it out of hand. PS Lots of RAF Anniversary special schemes would be plentiful....
  10. Ah! I thought it might have been but wasn't sure. A bit too close for comfort wasn't it.
  11. And which town is that in Northern Alberta?
  12. For the red Eric, I think I would use Xtracrylix Red Arrows red because its more orange and not really the Reds true colour Even in model form.
  13. Love it. One can almost feel the wind across the beach. Very nice and thoughtful work.
  14. Cheers for that Jamie. Like to see someone replicate on a model! Nitpickers will have fun!
  15. Has anyone given any thought or suggested a GB for the RAF 100th Anniversary for 2018????? I haven't seen one > Could be run from April 1st to whenever...I would have thought it to be a quite significant event to warrant a GB.
