      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. 1/48 AMK Mig 31
  2. First build after having my office and the rest of the downstairs taken out by a flood. So far these kits are a dream to build
  3. I'll get a Ginga if it comes out maybe even a Randy could be done
  4. I have and am getting close to finishing the XB 70 its a great kit
  5. No after market, I made the seat belts otherwise all is out of the box. I'm currently working on making an AF Seats with belts and AF wheel wells with more detail.
  6. Thankyou for the kind comments, Its a great kit lots of fun to build.

  8. Thanks. I used Mr. Paints except for detailing the cockpit. There I used standard Tamiya. The Mr Paints are the best Paints I've used.
  9. They are done Fine Molds Wingsy Both
  10. She is finished
  11. More progress Fine Molds Wingsy
  12. The Fine Molds kit has the option for raised and lowered flaps while the Wingsy kit has separate alerons. The Wingsy kits wings are also a shade longer in width than the Fine Molds, Which on is correct I don’t know having limited documentation of this aircraft. The forward cockpit fire wall/ammo bine are more finely detailed in the Fine Molds kit but the cockpit Rear Bulkhead and floor are more detailed in the Wingsy kit which also adds several PE parts. Overall the Fine Molds kit I think captures the side walls better than the Wingsy kit. The Fine Molds kit gives the interal structure to be glues to the sides of the fusalage while the Wingsy kit has the walls inluded in the cockpit tube. The Fine Molds kit may be more basic on the rear bulkhead but it includes the Oxygen bottles behind the bulkhead while the Wingsy kit does not. Overall both kits have some nice detail in the cockpit and leave others out. Fine Molds Wingsy
  13. Starting off with the wings the parts in both kits are very nice and fit flawlessly, The Fine Molds kit has some amazing texture which when finished in bare metal will bring out the stressed metal. The Wingsy kit has some very fine and amazing rivit detail. Which one will turn out better with paint has yet to be seen. The Fine Molds kit has the cockpit floor as part of the wing while the Wingsy kit has it separate. The Fine Molds cockpit floor is rather basic in comparison to the Wingsy kit which includes a window in the floor and several PE parts for more detail . Fine Molds Wingsy
