      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.

Johnny, just read this from start to finish, and what a stunning build.  I too have had good experiences with Vallejo Metal Color, but I've only done lottle pieces, not a NMF beauty.

 

Lovely jubbly.  Looking forward to the Bloody Paralyser...

Thanks. I'm going to have to put that name in the title.

 

thanks for all the lovely comments.

still away but I'll be back in a few days. Possibly get the RFI done before the weekend. I have Download Festival on Sunday However.

Damn you life for getting in the way of plastic. I need to catch a train in 20 mins "Jimmy Carr in Brum "  so can't post the RFI.  :huh:

Tomorrow friends, I promise.  :lol:

There are a LOT of pics. :analintruder:

Here's the link to the new 0/400 build if you fancy tagging along with some madness of a stringy WW1 kind.

Jimmy Carr is great live IMHO... especially when he's testing the audience on their 'prudishness'. Enjoy!

Yes he was great, getting heckled by some drunken idiot to do new material on a "best of" tour was a joy to behold.
