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.

mbdesignart posted a topic in Work In Progress - VehiclesGood morning vehicle chasers. Jumping on the Belkits Escort bandwagon following the excellent build by Nick Belbin I've been attacking the kit I've had for a while. I must confess to doing bits and pieces for a while but have only started chopping the chassis about this past week. If you want to see what's in the box can I suggest you buy a kit , you won't be disappointed. There's not much left intact on the sprues in mine anyhow! This is the car as it appeared back in the day, clip from YouTube. I am fortunate that a contact also had some period photos from Wembley Stadium as the car departed on this epic event. The car is also well detailed in Graham Robson's book 'Works Escorts in Detail' and there are plenty of images on t'internet. Here I'm mocking up the locations for the extra bracing bars and bull bars as featured on the escorts used in the event. I have subsequently discovered the kit lamp brackets set the light too high. Another feature of Ford's modifications for this car was the installation of auxiliary fuel tanks with extra filler caps sited in recesses in the rear wings. The standard fuel filler located in the left C pillar had to be filled along with the rear lamp recesses as the block lamp units were replaced by individual lens type fittings [see photo above] An auxiliary lamp used as a reversing lamp has been fabricated too. If you can't beat 'em chop out some plastic. I was hoping to get away with part surgery [ l/h image] but decided a major op was called for. Hence drawing templates for all the new bits to make the inner arches. As per NJB's build I'll be fabricating new front shocks too. The rear arches have been shaved to make fitting the body easier down the line. As mentioned earlier the kit spot lamp brackets set the lamps too high. Again Nick's build provided the inspiration and with some images of AVO Brackets off the net I have made a replacement from plastic strip, rod and hex section for the bolt heads which I'll get cast in resin for future builds. The other bracket is for the wing mounted lamp on the East Africa Rally Escorts ... more on that story later . That's the state of play so far, the front inner wing build being next in line to complete.
