      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 Eduard Mig-15 Czech Thunderjet Killer

Hi there, another one from the Christmas WIP now ready for its RFI. 

Basically this is a weekend edition, no etch but superfabric belts, however using the markings from the limited edition dual combo kit no. 2113. Only addition was some e-z line for aerial. 

 

Progress in this thread here: 

 

In short this build used AK interactive products all over, from extreme metals for the NMF, and air series for some of the Russian shades. Detail colours came from the basics set. 

Decals sealed with gauzy and then a satin final coat after the weathering which was Ak panel liners - the brown one. Also their 'scratches effect' fluid used for the wing walkways. 

 

Enjoy!

I didn`t know that the Czech AF had downed a Sabre using a MiG 15,.......I`ve only heard of this incident;

 

10 March 1953 Two US Air Force F-84G Thunderjets of the 36 TFW, based in West Germany, crossed into Czechoslovakian airspace. They were intercepted by Czech MiG-15 Fagots and one F-84G was shot down by Jaroslav Sramek. The pilot ejected and survived.

 

Is this the incident in question? If so.....I`m gld that the F-84G pilot survived.

Cheers
