      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.

Porsche 934 Turbo RSR Vaillant - Tamiya 1:24

42 posts in this topic

To give you all a little date, the 934 now has its Vaillant blue/green applied.  Need to clear coat it, not sure iff matt or gloss yet, a quick google should turn up the result, but in the mean time I have started another motor. WIP to follow soon.

OK, finally got out to the shops to get some clear lacquer. (Spent last week being over the legal limit for alcohol with all the works Christmas events)

 

and pleased to say, it had a couple of dust coats with 15 mins between and then a final wet coat. Now going to let it have a couple of weeks time to Harden off completely, then its time to flat and polish before applying some decals and final black trim etc.

 

so only the one photo, now clear coated:

cheers for stopping in and keeping up with the build, and in the mean time while we're wating for this to dry, why not look in on the next project (VW Caddy Mk1)

 

Edit: Have given the coat a 2000 wet sand and reapplied a coat of lacquer. Fingers crossed for a good finish on this coat. Really want to get this done now.

After a busy Christmas, and some time away from the bench, managed to get in a couple of hours this evening.

 

So the clear coat dried beautifully whilst I was away from the bench.  Have spent the evening painting the black bumper trims front and rear, along with the side sills.  All the window surrounds have had their black coat and the interior roof lining. 

 

The clear indicator up front have had translucent orange painted on, and the rear light strip has been painted.  Also done on the body has been the silver behind the light clears.

 

The body has also had another clear coat for all the trims etc, ready to get some decals applied, however I think I was a little premature as it looks the the black in the roof lining may have a couple of runs.  So I will give it till next week under wraps to Harden off nicely and then update with some pictures.  

 

In the mean time I plan to get all the last lot of black pieces of trim (spoiler, grilles, mirrors etc) primed and black painted.  Ready to clear coat when the shell comes out.  And then its decal time :clap2:

 

so look forward to some pictures next Monday hopefully. 

 

Cheers for dropping in,

Ok, 

 

nice to see a new viewer @loloskymaster 

 

So I spent lunchtime today painting the extra trim in semi-gloss black, first time I have managed to get the consistency right so it doesn't block up the airbrush.

Then this evening I have spent some time starting on the decals.  This build is not for the decal shy modeller, I'll tell you.

 

I have stopped for the evening as I couldn't face another decal.......that along with putting the wrong end of the micro sol cotton bud in my mouth. I do not advise this practice, it tastes foul

 

any how, I'll treat you to a little progress update.

Ok, another length of time at the bench with the decals.

 

Another little update for you guys, the decals still have micro sol being used on them, so just bear that in mind.

Ok, so work has been taking up too much of my time.

 

Have found some time to get at the bench, and the decals are nearly done, about 98% of the way finished with them.

 

Here's a couple of pictures just to keep you up to date with what is turning out to be a slow burner of a build.

OK,

 

Long time since any updates, modelling got out in hold with the arrival of a puppy and newborn.  Then work got crazy busy, but finally found the time and energy to get to the bench.

 

painted and fitted the last few bits and here is the progression of the build.

Those who hung in there over this long break, I thank you. 

Third model now finished and now its time to get on with the Caddy.

 

Thanks for looking in,

Beautiful job you've done there. 

Can I ask, did you use the ts spray for the green and how long did you leave it before applying the halfords clear?
