      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.

1/48th Hasegawa + Aeroclub Spitfire Mk.IXc, 145(Polish)Sqn, RAF

Hi all, I know, I know… It’s another Spitfire and another RAF scheme. But this one’s a bit different as it is an accurate 1/48 Spitfire Mk.IXc! Well, it’s about as close to an accurate Mk.IXc as I can get!

The kit is the Hasegawa one but with the Aeroclub fuselage as well as their four-bladed propeller and spinner. The exhausts are the excellent Moskit ones, seat belts are by Eduard and the decals are by Techmod representing ZX-5, EN267 of 145(Polish)Sqn, RAF, in North Africa in 1943.

The Aeroclub fuselage corrects all the shape issues with the Hasegawa kit's rather short fuselage and having compared every available option for a Mk.IX, this replacement injected fuselage by Aeroclub really does, in my humble opinion, look the part and could not be easier to use being a direct replacement.

Hope you like her and are not too bored of Spitfires as I seem to be on a bit of a Spitfire roll right now!

Nice Spit, nice Scheme. Since seeing the Spit in the Malta air museum as a kid, I've always liked the Mediteranean scheme and you've done it justice.

Hi Woody,

I used to stay in Malta when I worked for Emirates and never, ever went to the museum because, well, I'll go next time... The number of times I said that with regards to any of the places that I visited and now I work short haul the opportunities are no longer there, well, not unless I pay to go myself!
