      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.

H&S Evolution

Hi all,

After much mind changing and decision making agony, the new airbrush I have decided to invest in is the H&S Evolution. I have one question that will hopefully be answered here, and that is, would I be better off getting the Silverline model? I mainly use Mr Color lacquer based paints along with Tamiya acrylics. Will the standard model cope with these paints? The only reason I ask is I just like the look of the standard Evolution so much more :D

Thanks guys,

Mike.

p.s. Anyone know of any special offers on H&S at the minute?

The differences between the two are the centre body section & the handle;

The Evo's centre body has three rubber rings fitted on the outside of the centre body that can rot with solvent based thinner (if you get it near them), that being said, replacement rings are easy to get & not expensive. The "solvent resistance" that’s mentioned in regard to the Evo Silverline is the replacement of the centre body with a metal only one, the inner seals on both models are the same.

The Evo Silverline has a needle travel limiter fitted, called "Paint Volume Control" in H&S talk, which can be screwed in / out to limit needle travel & consequently paint flow - it doesn't feature the push button on/off "Quick Fix" of the Infinity or the optional Evo Handle.

P.S. - our's are always on special!

Ah, I didn't realise it referred to the outer body only :rolleyes: The "Paint Volume Control" might come in handy with my touch of an elephant. I thought I had made my mind up but now! :unsure:
