      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.

Hawker Typhoon

Posted (edited)

Next one to be built is this, the Airfix Hawker Typhoon. Will be using the kit decal as I thought the kit ones supplied with my Spitfire went on fairly well, but will be using the Brengun photo etch for cockpit and flaps, Master barrel set,  Aviaeology stencil data decals, quick boost resin exhaust and Aires resin tail plains and wheels

That's all the pictures I had taken before the photobucket situation started, needless to say its now at the start of the painting process.

Decided to paint the leading edge yellow stripe rather than use the decal, and the flap sections need a fair bit of work to get right

You don't se the Brengun kit that often, but from what you show it looks like a good kit.

The kit is the later Airfix release, 2016 I believe. The PE is the Brengun set.

D'oh!

I misread your opening paragraph!

Ok, so it's the Airfix kit. Well, that's a good kit in itself, so no worries there :)

Update.

Upper surfaces painted, and now masked. The Brengun flaps have been positioned as the few photos  I found show of a Typhoon with flaps lowered.

The Brengun etch has ribs for the underside of the wing above the flaps but in the few picture of flaps down that I found it appears not to have exposed ribs.
