  1. Howdy folks, Ray Peterson takes a look at an eBook on building the CAC Sabre in 1/32: KLP Publishing Build Special Series #1: Building Brick's Sabre in 1/32 Scale, by Eric Galliers Thanks, Ray! Disclaimer: KLP Publishing is in fact my own company, and this is my own publication, though I had no influence on this review. Enjoy! Kev
  2. Beautiful build, Ernest! May I publish it on the website? Kev

  6. More convenient? Yes! But sustainable? No! The fact is we don't have unlimited server space, and images take up a lot of storage on a server hard drive. Most of the forums that still allow direct image uploads are either smaller/less busy than we are, or aren't particularly image-driven. We (LSP), on the other hand, average around 300 new posts per day, with a significant portion of those containing multiple images. Take this for a conservative example: Let's say that, of the 300 posts made on any given day, an average of 100 of those contains an average of 2 images. And let's say, for argument's sake, that the average size of all those images is 1MB (many will be smaller, but some will be far larger, too). That gives us a storage growth figure of 73,000 images per year (100*2*365), or 73 gigabytes of new storage. Every year. Even if that estimate is out by as much as 50%, and it's only 36GB, that's just not tenable. We'd have been forced off the Internet long ago, or more realistically, had to make the same decision we've already made, just a bit later in the piece. I hope that explains it. Kev
  7. Firstly, welcome aboard, Ted! I've taken the liberty of moving your question here to General Discussion, where it more appropriately belongs. To answer it, however, you got the first part right: start a new thread in the Works in Progress forum. So I'm guessing that your question really revolves around how to post images. For this, you'll need a third-party site or service to host your images, as you can't upload them directly to our server as part of your post. The basic premise is that you upload them elsewhere (there are plenty of image-hosting services online, such as Imgur, Imageshack, SmugMug, and others, but you can even use Facebook, Google Photos, Flickr, and the like). Once you've done that, you'll need to copy the direct URL of the image, and then paste it in to your forum post. The forum software will then display the image for you. The act of copying that direct URL is where people seem to have the most trouble, and why I'd recommend a dedicated image hosting service over something more generic. They will give you better and clearer access to the direct URL of the image, whereas with other sites, you're more likely to inadvertently copy something that isn't that, and probably won't work as expected. When you're ready, just start a new topic in the Works in Progress forum, and start posting! Kev
  8. I suspect these are all long gone, fellas! Kev
  9. Ah, now that I'm at work, I can see the photos. Very weird! Great work, though! Kev
  10. Very impressive work, Chris - not to mention courageous! Kev
  11. That is superb, Brett! You're giving John a run for his money with this one. Kev
  12. Ah, I see you've amended the first post to reflect that this now is indeed a WiP thread, so I'll move it to the correct forum. Kev
  13. Wow, this is awesome! Time for a WiP thread? Kev
  14. Nice progress as always, John. Damian sure has nice legs! Kev
  15. The only kit of that aircraft that I'm aware of is the Revell 1/144 scale example: https://www.scalemates.com/kits/revell-04220-airbus-a330-300--142749 It's possible somebody has done Turkish Airlines decals for it, but I'm not aware of any off the top of my head. Big online retailers such as Hannants and Sprue Brothers might have shelf stock, but just be aware that the last release was back in 2013. Kev
  16. They look fantastic, Damian! I need just about every one of those... Kev
  17. Howdy folks, I've just published the latest What's New update. Enjoy! Kev
