      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.

Correcting the Revell 737-800

Crikey John ! The 737-200 is looking brilliant (even though the apparent skills have crushed my spirits ! :winkgrin: )

Can I ask where the crew members came from ?

(and if you say you sculpted them from scrap resin, I'll be off to the apple tree...... :hanging: )

No not really :clown:

They are N Gauge figures from my local model shops' railway section.

I primed the lower ones, and put them back in the pack after painting and taking the ones I wanted. They don't come like that!

2 of the sitting passengers have become airline pilots, and a 'lady with suitcase' had it surgically removed and became cabin crew.

If you recognise she is painted in a 1980's Air Europe uniform, you may need to remove your tinfoil hat but you'll know what livery I am planning on.

The thing about these figures is that they are very easy to modify. Some of those platform staff will become baggage handlers soon.

Cheers

John

Thanks John. May have to look into getting one of those for a project in mind.

...and seeing you're now a qualified plastic surgeon, any possibility you can surgically remove my wife's credit card from her hand ? :pilot:

Great post (and model), Viking! I wonder if the moderators can set up a pinned post like this 737-800 one, but for the 737-200, so the info will be easier to find?

Cheers!

True. One could end up with an entire forum of nothing but threads for tweaking specific model kits!

Amazing and impressive work! A friend of mine got an old Airfix 737-200 and this is good advise concerning building that kit.
