      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.

1/72 Italeri F-117 Nighthawk stars and stripes

Hello again!

 

First one in the Christmas WIP, the one that started it all as a mojo restorer...

 

 

A very quick build over a week or so, only a dozen parts-ish. Pilot from revell nato/us set. Stand came with the kit.

 

The lowdown - grey stynylrez, then mr hobby black and white, both gloss. Decals on the paint. Few details touched in and stripes touched up. AK interactive ultra matt on top and satin on lowers. 

Top looked too bland so drybushed (how 90's) some dark grey on the edges, re-varnished and looks a bit better. 

 

All in something quick and easy that I didn't take too seriously, and restored 'the mojo' B)

The Stars and Stripes improves this kit. I've done the Airfix version and was, well, underwhelmed by it. 

 

Youve made ace a boring subject interesting :goodjob:

Nothing wrong with a technique that works, as your model proves.
