      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.

My dad didn´t pay enough attention when he attached the front cowl and it became misaligned. So he cut it off again and glued it back on in the correct position. To cover the knife scars he has to fill and sand the joint again.

the ICM kit has no ordnance, so my dad stole rockets and rails from an AM Yak-1 kit

Good recovery on the cowl!  Nice little "rata".   Do you know what markings you will use?

Gonna do the box art scheme.

Some discussion about the colour, some say a factory applied winter camo, but don´t think so, also not a light grey, would be very unusual. Our best guess concurs with the ICM instructions, to say it´s painted completely in silver/aluminium.

shiny livery applied with Tamiya X-32 Titanium SIlver, but the problem with these fine pigmented metal colours is that you see everything that´s underneath...gotta do some filling and painting again

filling, sanding and repainting done, but it doesn´t look good, don´t know what to do, make it dirty so you don´t see all the reworked areas, or doing a different scheme...

The model hasn´t made it further, my dad wasn´t happy anymore how it looked after all the reworking and trashed it. :weep:

He will build "Red 21" someday in the future again.
