      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.

Thanks for the pics, looks like a nice place to start some interior detailing, any links to more pics?

And still we wait for a decent 1/72 C-130... and wait, and wait, and wait...

I`m not, I`m waiting for an alchohol-powered virtual reality machine. :drink::partytime::drink:

This is relevant, isn`t it?

Cheers, Ian

So? Is there a tax on non-100% relevant postings (which are only irrelevant in the eyes of the viewer)?? Did I miss a memo?

Just to keep it absolutely relevant, the kit looks lovely. It's a kit of an airplane that isn't in service, has only sold a few dozen, and will probably never be operated by more than a small handful of air forces in its (very expensive) lifetime. I think Revell totally didn't do a very good job by not taking the opportunity to own the C-130 market with a 1/72 kit to match their C-160 and Atlantic kits. But the A400M kit looks lovely.

How's that?

Maybe one of those American model producing company's you love so much should make a decent and accurate C-130 :D

I think what you mean Jennings, is:

"Hopefully this fantastic European enterprise, as ordered by various European Air Forces, is a pre-cursor for Revell to produce an ever expanding range of transport aircraft in 1:72, the next of which should be a C-130 and C-17"

;)

I figure the bottom line is, it's a European company producing a European aircraft, and considering the other Airbuses they have produced, I guess we should be gratefull it is 1:72 and not 1:144.

Jennings is right, the A400M kit is lovely.

We should all build one for the Jennings Heilig tribute GB (European subjects only).

HURRAH!!! :partytime:

Transatlantic, global, and interdimensional peace and goodwill to all modelmakers

And here's me hoping they do one in 144th.. Looks fantastic but as much as I'd like one, it just doesn't fit amongst my other heavies :(

You must have really broad shoulders for all those chips that they carry.

How about showing us one of your built models for a change? Go on, you know you want to. Perhaps a super detailed and accurised C-130...

Good on Revell for producing these kits at reasonable prices - if only it was to 1:48 scale.

:giles:

Opinions are like chocolate starfish. Everybody has one. Let's respect Jennings and his.

If there was a thread where people could go on and moan about which aircraft/ships/armour e.t.c. that model manufacturers should be making it would soon overtake Obi-Jiffs Word of the Day for the amount of posts.

Let's just be happy with what we are getting.

Peace on you my son.

I can confer with that bud.

Hows things Ray and your C-17?

Must dust mine off and carry out a few repairs after it fell from a scale height of 200ft snapping the fwd r/h nose section off :(

A400M Looks awesome.
