Re: This has got to be modelled!

Given the diameter of the tunnel it would appear to have originally been standard gauge. The tunnel portal is very modelable.

Re: Thank you, Photobucket !!!

I have been trying to research a vehicle model project. Google identified lots of hits across numerous websites unfortunately when I go to them all the pictures the pictures have been Photobucketed. Just makes you realise just how many photos they were hosting.

You really need to have a word with that mechanic. He has been under the back of that ute for some years. I think he is fast asleep :roll:

Geoff, It is a cold and wet weekend, a good excuse to do some modelling :D And I cheated by starting yesterday as I've taken a long weekend off. Unfortunately while it is 'G' modelling it is not 'n15" - 1/35th scale Rhodesian Garratt. https://farm5.staticflickr.com/4315/35078232134_af260e30b9_z...

Re: Under the Dome

Just goes to prove there is nothing under the sun.

I've been watching this space diorama growing and think a piece of train track sticking out of the dust would really get people guessing.

Re: Thank you, Photobucket !!!

On the other hand, I think we are being selfish and naive if we expected photobucket to serve up someone's photos for free and forever, even when that person is dead.

Well that is what the advertised their service as.

One of the groups I'm on believed itself to be the greatest repository of photos and history of Rhodesia. I just checked and the dreaded new logo has started replacing photos from some contributers.

I'm confused. I have checked my Photobucket hosted pictures on several groups and can still see them all. I guess it is because my Photobucket free hosting allowance has not been exceeded?
