      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.

This is IBG's newish release of the Polish Rosomak APC, which is really just a licence built version of the Finnish Patria. It's a very nice kit, with a pretty much full interior supplied, although hardly any of it can be seen, even with all the hatches open. The fit was great and the detailing's good. The wheels/tyres in particular were nice, being all styrene, so much easier to paint and weather than the usual soft vinyl type. Not the most inspiring of colour schemes, and the weathering's a bit bland, but it's pretty representative of how they looked when they were operating in Chad.

Nicely done, it's good that we're seeing more modern stuff kitted.

 

Have been reading the articles on this kit in The Modelling News with interest.

Much better than I expected it to. I thought, due to all the internal bulkheads, the upper and lower hull parts would end up very gappy when joined, but they actually fitted perfectly. The only really tricky part of the build is fitting all the diffs, props and suspension arms to the chassis. The go together okay, but you just need a bit of patience while lining everything up.

There's a build guide here

Fabulous result - weathering spot on as usual.

Great job in making a rather unremarkable vehicle stand out as a model
