      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.

Just in case you thought I was joking...

P.S. I know they always advise spraying red on top of white primer, but boy does it make a big difference!

So Keith, you can approach the Heritage version with confidence.   Perhaps these two shots will convince you that the nose difference is marginal:

 

Thanks Crisp, yes I'd probably not notice anything amiss after it's built. And tbh, I have no worries about the nose weight as I very rarely use any - all my finished models are stuck to bases!

 

Cheers 

Keith

 

PS - spot on about my instructor's shout prior to start up!

Looking superb. They are right what they say about red on top of white primer.

A little bleeding, but nothing awful; pretty happy.

Great work painting .......I know it is not too easy to get lines against a white background done on a 1/48 bulldog...........went thru that some years back.............

 

Hope to see them done up soon

Watching with interest. I had many, many flights in the Bulldog during my ATC years.

This looks easier than trying to

mask up & spray the Airfix 1/72nd Bulldog.

I may have said rude words at the time.
