      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.

STRATEGIC AIR COMMAND. Lockheed DC-130A

DSCF2689copy.jpg

Another addition to the SAC collection. A rare Italeri 1/72 kit with purloined props and a few hours research.

Apart from the fuselage cracking when the paint job was finished and a tendancy to knock the drones off, it was remarkably trouble free. The usual 'ancient' kit moans of course, raised panel lines, parts that don't fit, parts that are there and shouldn't be and parts that aren't there that should. Still that's all over now (unless I find a 1/48 kit at a reasonable price of course........)

Wow, a very impressive build here of this great-looking version of the C-130 ! It is especially interesting with that line-up of drones underneath the wings.

(the eye-popping young gal accompanying the images is really wonderful, too ! But, have her be careful with leaning up against that large red button. I imagine in that case something would then take off with a roar or explode !) B):lol:

The drones give the Herk a distictive look all it's own. I'm off to the dark side for a while now.

Very nice indeed, does that count as one model or five in close formation?

Thanks for the comments folks. The hardest part about this kit is finding one in the first place! Oh and the 'milliput elbow' you get sanding anf filling the nose extension.

I'd count it as one model, the four smaller ones are permenantly attached.

You really did a wonder on that nose, it's flawless to my eye and no easy task, I am sure! I don't think you're helping the availability of DC-130 kits by inspiring everyone like this!!!

'Guess I'll have to wait till the flurry dies down to the usual level of insane outbidding ebay madness ;)

Thanks for sharing her...two thumbs way up!
