      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.

Good morning

Yesterday I started my 4th and last build for this Gb I hope I will be able to finish before the end of the Gb

I will try to convert the Tamiya Thunderbolt D into an M model with the Quickboost wing conversion and will replace the propeller by a Revell one ,I will replace the seat by a Pavla one and the Ip by a Yahumodels one I will represent the last Thunderbolt flown by the Colonel Dave schilling https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/David_C._Schilling..

As usual I started by the cockpit

Hi Patrice, you have snuck this one in, I haven't looked at the main build thread for a while and have seen a few late entries.

Nice start you've made, you should have this one done in no time.

Glad to see you're back for a 4th one!!!

Good morning Rich

Thank you anyway ..

The Jug is one of my favourite aircraft and it wore so much varied and interesting camouflages in different theatre of operations furing WW2, in fact I am planning to build a french Razorback for the Mto Gb latter this year ..

Regards

Patrice

Salut Patrice,

I lapsed and did not spend too much time scouring the P-47 GB, and it was a mistake. There are some great builds.

You are doing great yourself! And I cannot help notice that you have become an afficionado of the Yahuu IPs! When Mrs Hannant sends me my next order, there will be quite a few of them in the box!!!

Superbe travail!

Have fun

JR

Very nicely done Patrice, another fine model to add to your collection and the gallery.

It's a pity the build has to come to and end as I'm sure you would have liked to have done a few more!

Good morning Rich

Thank you for your comment but it is not my best build : there is a problem of ''silvering'' with the decals ..

Before placing it in the gallery I will try to remove the wing pylons as fellow modeller on a french site wrote me that the P47 M were not equipped with wing tanks ..

You read my mind I really would have liked to build a few more and in fact I think that I will try to build at least one more (D SCHILLING'S D ) latter this year ..

I really enjoyed participating in this Gb full of amazing builds ..

Great to see it done Patrice :)

Good morning PBS

Thank you ..

Another well done Patrice, she may have not been exactly what you had wanted but still a nice model.

And sadly that's it for you for this GB, but I'm sure you'll be first on the list for the next one.

Again it was great to have you in this build and you turned out some great and interesting models, well done.

Good afternoon Rich

Thank you ..

Yes it is really too bad that the Gb ends so soon but you can be sure that I will build at least another one before the end of this year ..

It was a great Gb and I am ready for a Thunderbolt Gb next year ..
