      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.

ME 109 E4n - Airfix 1/72

The thickened light grey mix is spread and feathered over gun bulges, radiator edges and so on to add shape.

And thin touches of the samre paint to subtlely simulate scratches.

The last "shape enhance" actions are made with cold ageing filter, subtle touches into some recesses and wing joints

The very last effect is some oil leaks from the engine. 

Given the need for subtlety, a filter & wash, black tone, was used.

That is an outstanding build.  I really like the way you have explained and demonstrated your techniques.

 

An incredible eye for detail and to then replicate it on such a fine scale.

 

Stunning.

 

Phil.

Thank you much Guys.

Some more pics. This kit availed me to win a master gold prize at the Italeri event in Bologna. (being awarded by the commander of 6th Squadron of Ghedi, flying on tornado planes, is not a daily business...)
