      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.

Prague has about 10 model shops within a short radius of the centre, most accessible via the public tram system.  The two main ones in the centre are MPM and Bilek.

If you go to the web site dstorm.eu there is a section on model shops in Prague with links to maps and direction from the city centre. I used it when I went there a few years ago, very helpful. In fact there are 3 shops in quite close proximity of each other, all within walking distance of Wenceslas Square. Hope that this of some help.

 

Found the link. http://dstorm.eu/pages/en/other/prague.html

Unfortunately I have been to Prague 3 times and never got to the museum, but I have landed there on my last trip when in the RAF.

Kbely is a superb museum,  but a lot of their aircraft are stored outside, so, not in the best of condition.

My suggestion is to visit MPM shop on Myslikova street. Not far from the centre, accesible via tram or by walk. Take tram No. 6 from Vaclavske square to the station Lazarska, then not more than two mins by walk. Shop is on the corner, you can not miss it. 

I am not sure if Bilek carry Eduard kits. Two other good shops are Artur Model Centrum and PM Pecka, but both are far from the centre. But accesiable via public transport.
