      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 Giorgio - doh - sorry - meant to say looking good with the markings going on but automatically said decals! Just habit!

Impressive work on the undercarriage too!

Kind regards,

Last update before I leave for a two week holiday B) :snorkle:

 

The other wheel strut with the wheel dry fitted

Then I decided to glue in the tail planes

CA gel used here, so that it sets quickly but not too much. I then went over the joints with Tamiya Green Cap, using an old fine tipped brush

 

There she is

Spero che tu abbia un buona vacanza Giorgio  :)

 

I just caught up. I'm still in awe of the markings. They look superb :thumbsup2: .

 

I don't pretend to understand the software, techniques and materials involved, but I will research them; this looks far better than decals.

 

All best regards

Thanks Crane :thumbsup: Glad if this can be of any help :)

 

3 in your stash? I'm slightly envious... :D

 

Great profile pic you have, BTW; what mountains are those, if I may ask?

Sure you can't skip decals for the red alignment arrows near the leading edge of the tailplanes.

Don't want to annoy anyone, but your work looks better and better.

Have a nice vacation. (We'll miss you)

Bye

Thanks Euge! :thumbsup: I don't recall having seen the small red alignment arrows on the decal sheet - in fact I was thinking of brush painting them on... :frantic:

I took that picture while on vacation in Arizona. It is from the overlook on Airport Road in Sedona. BTW, I just saw you are from Bergamo, which gave me a chuckle, because my Instant Immersion Italian mentions that town. (I am trying to learn Italian and going for dual-citizenship)

Ain't the world small? :D:D Bergamo is a very nice city to visit, BTW. Good luck with your double citizenship procedure :thumbsup:

Happy holiday. Two weeks without BM you will be suffering from withdrawal symptoms by the time you get home.

 

Cheers

Not a build update, but today we had a low pass by a Eurofighter (Italian Air Force base very close to where I'm spending my holiday) :) Nice start
