      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.

Really impressive. Liberation from the tyranny of kits. Once you've finished your first scratchbuild, you realise that anything is possible.

Super impressive. One day when I've got the hang of building kits without destroying them I will try a bit of scratch building...       Excellent work!

It's the common modell railroad HO scale. Well known by Märklin, Fleischman and Trix. Lots of cars, trucks an buildings are also made in this scale.

Roco (Herpa mowdays) was big in this scale concerning military vehicles...

 

For sure, brilliant model making!

Scratch building is the most satisfying form of modelling for me. This is a really excellent demonstration of what can be done with plastic. First class in every way.

I second Phoenix's comments above. Always nice to see scratchbuilt projects, especially to this standard.

Wow! That is just some brilliant work. I wish I had even 10% of the skills you've demonstrated here.  Great photos of it 'in the field' also.
