      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.

Postman dropped this off at the weekend from Destiny Models, 1:4 scale Dewey from Silent Running.

Had chance to have a quick look through and the casting is very nice, only a few small holes to fill.

 

Edit: Just for interest I posted these pictures from my 'standard' Photobucket account!!  Very strange.

Oh this is good - do they do all three?  Cracking movie - one of Bruce Dern's best.

I had to go and look because I love those little drones.  Then I saw the price and began crying :crying:

Yes, not cheap but there is a lot of very nicely cast resin for your money.

My Bandai Star Wars stash dwarfs yours, I'm afraid :blush:  My main problem is my build rate, which is almost exactly zero at the moomin. :shrug:

It would be heaven if I could now find the time to actually build or paint something :D

I do have plans to expand the stash but I seem to have spent most of my money on racking and floor tiles. Mainly what I would like to add is all of the little Bandai 1:144 kits, a pair of clone troopers and all of the tie fighter variants and rebel ships. Oh yes and lighting kits for the Iron Man and Viper along with a photo etch kit for the Viper. My current build rate is also zero and I really do keep meaning to begin building the star Destroyer - I bought the Revell kits to practice spraying and weathering techniques so it would be nice to actually do some of that.

I built/made these some years ago.

I strengthened them with balsa.

Fun to do.

As I said in the photo caption, whatever happened to "Discreet brown paper wrapping, for the Gentleman Connoisseur", eh? No mistaking this on the doorstep...

Whats in the box Will?:P

 

Just had a set of these arrive today, picked up on ebay for a reasonable price at last. They are much better looking in the plastic and good size to.

Those Zaku look pretty good, could be the bases of an interesting diorama?

It's this thing: http://www.1999.co.jp/eng/10410186

 

I'm such a fool, but it's a MASSIVE ROBOT DINOSAUR. The cannons are over a foot long...

 

Still a fool.

Very nice, looks like a remake of Zoidzilla, I still have my small collection of 80`s Zoids up in the loft and have a Zoidzilla.

I think it is a remake (as a plastic kit) - Gojira begat Godzilla who begat Zoidzilla in the West, whereas Gojira begat Gojuras in the East.

 

The first Gojulas release Kotobukiya did was even in the blue and grey of the '80s Zoids :)

 

I don't have any of my originals left, nor the re-releases I picked up later, which is stupid really. My daughter has a couple I found on eBay - Academy bought the moulds and sold them in Korea for several years after Tomy stopped.

 

Would love to get the crocodile again, that had a great walk :)

Eventhough I have zero knowledge about Gundam, after building many nice Star Wars model kits from Bandai, I ordered that one which arrived on Friday:

well my postman just delivered me a Revell snap fix star destroyer to join my armada of other destroyers - my 1977 Kenner and my Disney Store ISD now have a baby brother - every office needs a touch of Star wars on the desktop

I finally got my hands on the Bandai AT-AT.

 

But i went Batman mad again last week & snipped me up 2 old Revell kits at £15 each:-

 

Batman Forever Batmobile

Batman Forever Batboat

 

Both from the same uk seller, box was slightly dented as they were old, but tge sprues are still bagged up & sealed.

 

I could have gotten a complete set with a Batwing from USA, but i think ebay are charging customs on USA auctions as they wanted £20 upfront.

 

So it would have cost me £70, instead of £50, shame really.

 

Still on the lookout for a Batwing, but not at £45 on ebay ATM.

Went to the local ParcelFarce depot yesterday since they failed to deliver the package on Monday as requested to collect this beauty...

Its very similar to the other Eagle kit but has the cargo winch and nuclear waste cannisters

...and this will be the base for when I start building it as a diorama...
