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.

Hello, I am now building HMAS Canberra in 1/700 as she appeared just before the time of her loss at Savo Island on August 8th, 1942, based on the Kombrig resin kit. My questions at this moment are related to details of the following: Bridge equipment - there is a well-known photo showing HMAS Australia´s open bridge details during wartime, but her modified bridge was very much different from her sister´s at that time. Would anybody have some photos showing other Kent-class cruiser´s original-style bridge layout and details? Type 271 radar was housed in a typical lantern, that had either octagonal or circular shape. Unfortunately, neither of the few photos I know of showing Canberra´s final fit (photo 1, photo 2) including 271 radar is clear enough to be able to see it clearly enough to tell which type it was. Would anybody be able to tell e.g. based on the type likely to be installed in that period? She also carried a Type A290 radar on her foremast. To depict the radar however I would need more details that I was not able to find yet, especially dimensions and ideally clear photos or even a drawing of the set. The best I´ve got so far is this photo of HMAS Warramunga with A290 but anything better would be highly welcome. Thank you! (For those interested, there also is an interesting discussion regarding Canberra´s Walrus colours at this forum)
