      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.

UKMIL Nimrod

For those that didn't know, not only do I do Models for RAF Waddington and a Model Railway, but also I have an interest in flight sim and was responsible for the UKMIL Nimrods (MR1 R1 MR2 AEW3)

The Nimrod was my first Flight Sim Creation and I have decided to give it a little revamp with new skills I have developed.

First to get the touch up is the aircraft I see daily the Mighty R1. A major short fall, I'm sure current uses have found, is the lack of a VC. This has been adressed

Here are a few WIP shots, Other shots are only available for Club Members over at

www.ukmil.org.uk

The 1st image is taken at UKMILs virtual Version of RAF Waddington, the basic Nimrod is a AI aircraft from the Waddo Package

The 2nd is a Work in Progress shot of the all new VC

Nice work Mattie. I've been wanting to try out something like this since I found a South African site that did the same thing for the Shackleton.

Mattie,

between building the Airfix kit and doing the flight sim stuff I guess we could officially dub you the Britmodeller "Nimrod GURU" :worthy:

Regards,

Michael
