      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.

Hi Piere, lovely set of three, only one comment re the propeller on the Charlotte, after 751 they were fitted with propulsers as per the Seawolf/Virginia class, i can only surmise that this is Riich's attempt.

 

regards Chris

Hi Chris

When you talk propulsers like Seawolf/Virginia you talk about "pump jet" ? .I never see this system on a LA class .This prop was scratchbuilt based on Cheyenne's photos Last LA flight III had this sort of propeller:

Hi Pierre, great find, they are quoted on global security as being fitted with the same propulsor as the seawolf from 751 onwards, obviously someone has got it wrong.

 

All the best Chris

They are lovely! I love the different stages of weathering on each boat. Nice bases as well.:wub:

 

I think Chris may have caused a moment of panic! :devil:

 

Are they all Riich kits?
