      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.

Doing a bit of research on the battle of Nuenen, I was looking for a plan of the town used in the HBO series. The closest thing I came across was this, pretty cool, well i think so.

I didn't notice the Kermit resemblance the first time I watched it, that's an uncanny likeness.

With the weather being good, I've thought I would get on with the roofing. The tiles are from juweela 1:35 roofing tiles, they are plastic and come with 532 tiles and 28 edging tiles. To do the other side I will need to buy another pack.

Kind regards,

the building has come to a little halt, I've got to get some more roof tiles to complete the other side. Hopefully I will get around to getting them before the end of May.

Hi Ozzy,

Looking good.

Have you thought about constructing a section of tiled roof then making a latex mould and taking casts from it? It would save you time and money in the long run. (Should you ever make any more buildings with roofs, anyway)

 

Rearguards,

ive not thought of casting the roof tiles, I will need to cast the side wall when I pluck up the courage to have ago. Hopefully some time next month when I've got down to hobbycraft or got around to ordering of the net.

Not a build update, more of a hardware update. I ordered some more roof tiles last week, I also picked up a Tasca Sherman M4A1 yesterday at the Salisbury show and orded a set of T 49 tracks by Bronco. I couldn't find the grizzly tracks in plastic as used on the Sherman in the episode, I may make a start on the Sherman this evening.

Shermans aren't my favourite tanks 'looks wise', but they are certainly fun and easy to build with much fewer wheels/wheel parts to clean up, glue together and paint than those of their opponents!

Have fun!

Will do,

 

i was looking for a Tamyia Cromwell but no joy, however I found a Tasca kit which are almost as rare as hens teeth. I built there VC kit years ago, it went together really well so should have no problems with this kit.

With  the sun shining, I thought I would do a little out door modelling. I finished off the other roof side, it's looking very homely, I also picked up this mini art set of furniture. I've also switched to postimage to put my pictures through so here goes.

Lookin' good in the sun.

I was thinking about getting that MiniArt set but I was worried about the accuracy of the scale. It will be interesting to see how it matches up with some figures.

Still very angry over Photobucket. I suspect other such companies will follow suit so I'm backing everything up on a stick now. (A 2ft length of Hazel if you must know):D

Thanks Badder,

 

i shall keep you updated on the miniart kit, as long as they aren't sized like the door frames we should be ok. I know what yo mean about the PB state of affairs, all that reference lost I hadn't even used my free amount. However using postimage it seems an easier way of doing business.
