      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.

I will be having a go at the external rigging for sure, even though I'm a rigging virgin. Looking forward to it just not sure when I'll be starting. At the moment I'm just happy to finally have a Wingnut kit.

You should know before you start, whenever that may be, it is likely to get you hooked :devil:

I have never seen Lord of the Rings or anything else Sir Peter Jackson has done but I am greatly indebted (and in debt) to him for bringing about Wingnut WIngs kits. I look at my Roden 1/32 kits now and they fill me full of dread by comparison.

I seem to be hooked on just reading the manual at the moment. Am thinking of buying another one soon. Either an FE.2b or any German plane. They certainly have a certain magic about them. As silly as it sounds, just seeing the logo is good.

Thank you  WETA.  

 

My free copy of the " Sopwith Camel Squadron's" book was on the doorstep when I got home from work this 'arvo! Gotta be happy with that.

"Thank you" and "WETA" are words that are not very often seen together in the same sentence.

Indeed.

 

Very happy with my free book from Weta.

 

Somewhat less impressed by the fact that I still don't have my Camel despite paying in full in advance for a preorder. :wall:

You still haven't received the kit? Jeez that is rotten. I am just finishing my first one. I would be on the warpath big time if I was still waiting.

Looks like it may have been lost in the post but I'm still waiting for Weta to confirm that.

I've been away in Australia for the last month with work and didn't really pay much attention until I got home and there was no package waiting for me.

Weta came through at last and a replacement goodie pack was delivered - with a bonus.
