  1. Hey Chris, Sorry for not seeing this sooner! Unfortunately I don't have an iPad to try this with... but I would expect it to work the same as it does on any mobile device... so simply clicking the "Britmodeller" share code button will automatically copy the required link to your clipboard. You should then be able to 'long-press' and paste the link wherever you like. Worth noting that you also need to have Javascript enabled on your browser Best
  2. Thanks @Gorby The lack of images on the site isn't really because many are private... it's simply because the site is new-ish and I've only mentioned and used it here on these forums. So there arent many users yet! Here are the different available accounts. FREE £0/month Upload Size Limit: 4MB Storage: 1000 images Images Expire: After 730 days (2 years) of not being viewed Max. Images Views: Unlimited Watermark: Yes Disable Auto-Resize: No Image rotation (JPG & PNG) Image Tags & Titles Supports: JPG, P
  3. Thanks for mentioning my site @Gorby HobbyPhotoHost is 100% free. You can upload photos from Desktop or Mobile up to 4MB per file. There are options to upgrade your account for a small subscription, but the free service is all most people would ever want/need. A subscription service just increases the maximum upload size, allows you to keep images private, remove watermarks as well as a few other things it allows you to add your own watermarks. But if all you want to do is share an image, there's no charge. Obviously, subscriptions help to fund the server, offsetting the free users.
  4. @andmarsh thanks! much appreciated
  5. @andmarsh No worries... Though I think I actually just fixed the problem. Even if you don't intend to use my site, could you try uploading the image again just so I know it's working again?
  6. Hey @andmarsh The file size limit was only increased a week or so ago, but should have worked! I'd like to get it working for you, can you do a quick support request on https://hobbyphotohost.com/support/index.php?a=add and upload the 3.4 mb JPG image there?.. and I'll get it sorted/fixed today! Thanks
  7. This model feels like it's taken forever to build and paint, I'll be glad to see the back of it and move on to something else. Possibly the U.S.S Reliant I've had on my shelf for a few years. This one's been hard because between starting this model and today, I've lost both my mum and dad. When I look at it, it'll always be the one I was building through this difficult time Anyway, enough of the depressing background! So again, I've not taken as many photos as I would have liked to, but here are the once I have... Here, I've started masking out all the clear plastic us
  8. HobbyPhotoHost is as easy as, 1. Upload the image/photo 2. Click one button (use the 'Direct Link' button for this forum) 3 Paste in to this forum
  9. Hi @Monkeysinister I used Humbrol #35 Varnish Gloss - 14ml Acrylic Varnish (https://www.humbrol.com/uk-en/35-varnish-gloss-12ml-acrylic-varnish.html) applied with an airbrush before applying the decals, and then again after the decals had dried. The result was okay (I'm happy with it) but it was my first model ever and others might have better advise on this subject!
  10. After a recent disaster this model has become a 'work in progress' again The mains adapter I was using for the power source had a removable/changeable end and it came off. I put it back on, plugged it in and turned it on. After a few seconds I could smell burning Turns out I'd put it on the wrong way around so the polarity was wrong. Luckily the power (9v) fed in to a small circuit board outside of the model, which in turn provided power to the other circuits inside the model. It also handled the timing for the navigation lights. So all the circuits and LEDs inside the model stil
  11. Those secondary impulse engines look fantastic! Very nicely done. I briefly looked at a similar effect when doing my Enterprise NCC1701 but in the end just went with a plain red, next time I'd love to get it looking as good as yours Looks forward to seeing more of your build!
  12. Looks like you got it working with Flickr I use HobbyPhotoHost.com which is pretty easy, and has a free option. You can upload from your mobile or a desktop too.
  13. Nice build log, lots of detail Looking forward to seeing the finished model!
  14. That looks amazing! Very nice :) I've seen some people use a soft pencil to bring out the deeper panel lines. Is that how you did yours?
  15. Thanks @RACETRACK I looked in to this a bit after someone else also mentioned DS9. The model does indeed look like it's based on the Enterprise featured in the DS9 episode 'Trials and Tribble-ations' which does have the grid lines... it made me feel better about not filling them in and trying to be faithful to the original series version I'd also love to build/have a 1/350 Enterprise, but I think the Mrs might get upset as I've not really got anywhere to display my models (yet)! The model I've shown above is a good size though, not too big but big enough to really get stuck in to
