      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.

Hi fellow modellers,

 

this is one of my latest additions for the upcoming Valiant Wings title AIR WAR OVER ITALY,  the Special Hobby kit built with some updates in the markings of the Aviazione Cobelligerante Italiana.

 

Cheers

I'm going to have to use the word 'stunning' again. Wow!

It could easily pass for 1/48 - amazing job.

Hello Libor, another amazing kit from your workbench.

I love the paintjob and the weathering, you're a real master of art.

The clear parts look flawless, too!

The tyres do look a bit tip-toed, though;

flattening them out would probably add some "weight" to the model.

With kindest regards from Vienna,

Roman

PS. Looking forward to that Vaillant Wings publication. I'll have to get one for sure!

Very good, mate! How did you achieve such transparency of the cabin glazing? I have yet to assemble this aircraft.

Beautiful paint work and nice to see a Co Belligerante aircraft for a change.

Libor, I will allow myself to call your Baltimore "awesome". I only use that word for something really special. :)

Great looking model and not often seen. Agree with other comments on the fine looking glazing and perhaps flatten those tyres?

Very, very nice. Distinctive aircraft, unusual markings, and beautifully finished, I love it.

Many thanks to everyone for kind comments!

Fuad: the clear parts were polished with fine mesh cloths, but the canopies were already moulded very clear indeed.

Steve: thank you, sir :-)

Roman: that's a good observation, I could flatten the tyres a bit! Next time I'll pay better attention to it.

 

Cheers

Libor

Beautiful paintwork as always Libor, the weathered look is incredible. I'll be getting a copy of the book too when it's out :)
