      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.

Well a good friend of mine has asked me to build this amazing kit. So I am venturing out of my comy 1:48th zone and going large! There are a few aftermarket additions, namley the Eduard Interior PE, HG Fabric seatbely and Yahu instrument panel.

I ambuliding MN666 'CG' which lead one of the first rocket attacks on the beach head on the 6th June 1944. This I hope is going to be a bit special, so I am going to take my time with this one!

So I have started after giving everything a good warm wash. It is going together beautifully!

Good luck with the Typhoon.

I have one stashed away but tbh I'm a bit scared of it. Bit more practice first I think, building the Roden Sea Gladiator then maybe the Has. Typhoon in 1/48 or maybe a Seafire (It's all just avoidance)...

Think I'll just watch this one for a bit...

Every time I see one started I can't believe how much internal structure there is straight from the box.

Seems you've got off to a fine start with this one Richard and an interesting selection of goodies to add into the mix.

Gloss primer on ready for the metal coat, black post shaded firewall completed and sealed with a matt coat. Had a bash at the seat aswell, more detail on the leather to be done yet, but pleased with how its gone so far. 24hr wait for everything to dry fully now.
