    posting images from Flickr

    As of now they are stating as follows...: "Will Flickr continue to offer a free version? Will Flickr’s price change? Absolutely. Flickr’s free accounts are foundational to its community of influential and engaged photographers. We are not making any changes to Flickr plans or rates at this time. We’ll let Flickr Pro customers know if that changes." ...but that could change any time soon, but afaik, nothing else is in the making as of now. @Martin there should be a BB Code tutorial somewhere in the help section I'd assume, but sweet, if your Ctrl C/P works just as fine. /Stefan
  3. Cheers man, check out these ones radio version 178's, they are of the radio vehicle kind, but the front glacis mounting for your communitcation wiring is the same (however the turret mounting is different, so do not copy that)*. https://www.chars-francais.net/2015/images/stories/photos/p178r-1.jpg One out of every 12 vehicle in every platton was one of these radio vehicles to enable long range communication, as the standard vehicle could only communicate for a maximum of 5km [ER29] and the ER26 (depending on the version) 5-30km once moving.**/***. ______ OK, now some rivet counting, just as info in case you are interested: You are using the later APX3 turret, as such, the Gundlach periscope and PPL.RX.168 episcopes should be used, you have used the old ones... The Gundlach ones allowed for a 360 degree rotation and were flatter and offered better protection. as the previous version (used on the prototype ones and first few doen vehicles). The horizontal vision slits on the side of the turret were used together with the redesigned front Early APX3 turret (Simple vision slits on side and block vision thing on the front and no Gundlach periscopes) Middle APX3 turret with Gundlach and no ventilation system mounted on the loader's hatch https://www.chars-francais.net/2015/images/stories/galery/1935_p178/99836 01.jpg Late/standard APX3 turret with Gundlach and ventilation system mounted on the loader's hatch (see the bulky thing there...) https://www.chars-francais.net/2015/images/stories/galery/1935_p178/99855 07.jpg https://www.chars-francais.net/2015/images/stories/galery/1935_p178/m16150 01.jpg All 4 photos from * The side vision ports (not slits) of your turret match the middle and late version, as such, you'd need to change the hatch and the periscopes if you want to add accuracy. OK, I edited it many times, it keeps deleting and not adding the photos except for the one... Sorry but I never had a problem with this site... but I give up. Click on the link and remove the added letter behind the .jpg in order to view the picture^^, this was the only way possible to ad them, or is there some new policy regarding links that I do not know of?

  11. Lovely 8 wheel version of the 234. I like your depiction of the storage bins and the addition of the binos and other little extras!

    My first tank!

    Great first tank there. I'd second the dust thing, the tracks are a bit too tidy I'd say.
