      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.

That's another beauty, remind me again who has too much time on their hands?  I agree that the old Monogram kiis are great fun to build and are very good replicas, most of which have not been surpassed to this day.

a great looking build, with a perfect finish on the paint job. I read somewhere that the '102 was George Bush's plane whilst in the Texas Air Guard

Avoiding the draft while with the National Guard is the phrase you were looking for Fights-On !!!!;)

Sorry Camper 1.  Great looking jet.

Hello Ian,

Great build. With Monogram you can't go wrong!

From a time when air frames were spotless.

Very very nice Ian.

Are we perchance going to see a Greek or Turkish one in your stable?

Hi Richard 

I have a couple more to do and then I may do the one which is in the Turkish Air Fore museum.

I took quite a few pictures of it a couple of years ago.

 

Cheers

Very nice work.

 

I agree with above regarding the fun with Monogram kits. They were a great way to to do a fun and reasonably accurate build of an aircraft from any era.

Only when they painted them up in the Mirage colours after they were relegated to decoys Tony otherwise the usual grey. (plus a couple of later deliveries in Vietnam style camo)

Turkey with the square national markings (Should that be squaredels?) Ian but since its a 'deuce' and we can never have too many..do both :devil:
