      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.

Excellent news. Must be one of the most versatile WWI types when it comes to marking options. I suppose I better get my Pegasus kit on ebay before its value crashes!

(By the way, mine will be a postwar civil bird without the flared gunners position.)

I think I have that sheet somewhere. Once I pick up one of the kits, I'll have to dig that decal sheet out from the stash.

Outstanding Peter! So many overlooked German two-seaters from the Great War. I hope this one is a big success, and motivates many more...!

Good news. I think it is the first WWI injected 1/72 two-seater after several decades. What was the previous one? Toko 1 1/2 Strutter in '90s?

Yes, there are nice HR Nieuports 10 and Phoenix C, but these are very hard to obtain.

Was 2014 "several decades ago"? I've just purchased this last month:

You are right! I'm so much fixed on the idea of the BE2c as a single seat anti-Zeppelin fighter that I've forgotten it was in fact two-seater!
 Also there was a Brisfit from Roden, but it is another fighter.

We had some technical probs with moulds, causing the delay of the kit, which we hope to show in Nuremberg and simultaneously put into distribution. Hannants are the first on the list to be stocked.

My question is, Painting Soviet LVG hypothetical or draw based on photos?

Jan, I know you and your colleagues work very hard to make sure your markings are accurately researched. I only found this one photo in the public domain, hence my joke post. I hope my model has more luck than the pictured prototype...

 

Can you tell us anything else about the soviet scheme? Were they fully repainted in Soviet colours?

 

I am really excited by this release by KP!

 

Will

As I can domment this - the example we have included in the box was probably overpainted in Green colour. Quality of the photographs is very pure. But it looks like it was overpainted. And, thanks to the fact also Ansaldo SVA 5 and some Nieuports got this scheme, we considered to do it like we have in the box. Marking is visible on the pictures, so I can say it was reconstructed properly. Unfortunately we have no permission to publish the photos, so.... 

We are working on more schemes of this nice little gem and we hope we will release it later this year. And, as we got a lot of orders for LVG, we are very close to work on another subject from the Great War. Any personal tips genelemen?

Salmson 2A2, an updated Roland C II would also be very nice, and of course, an updated DH 4!

Later,

Dave
