Photobucket still works, and if you're willing to either pay for their service, or put up with watermarks, you can still use it. However, we fervently recommend against it. There are many other hosting services that provide the same function, however, so it's definitely worth investigating those. Uploading directly from your device is not possible, however.

Hi

Thank you very very much for your kind answer.

I will do it.

Thanks

FYI, the above is a FB link, for anyone who can’t/doesn’t want to access FB.

 

Indeed, but it's the only place to see the photos - I don't do fb anymore, and can see them.

Sigh... still waiting for a cockpit that's not noticeably too shallow.  I'm willing not to bend over and squint my eyes to see into the tiny little intakes, but with the lid open you can't help but see how shallow that cockpit is.

So has anyone gotten their hands on an F-5F kit yet? Or is everyone waiting for the price to drop like me? I'd be interested to hear how it looks, fits, ect...  Fred K.

Waiting for the price to drop.  The F-5F kit is still about $100 on eBay, while the single seater is about $60.  An extra seat isn’t worth $40 more.

 

Agreed. Me thinks that the distributor (I'm assuming) is price gouging :hmmm: Fred K.

I preordered  my F from sincere hobbies, http://www.sincerehobby.com/, got it right after release for about $63 shipped. I’m thrilled with how it looks. Very similar to the F-5E in terms of the plastic and level of detail. Have been buried with other things so haven’t dug into it in detail yet. I expect the same issues as the single seater which I have also, however i think they are great kits and way better than the old Hasegawa kit I’m still piecing together!

So exactly how much is $538 HK dollars then? For $63 shipped, I'm on it! Thanks, Fred K.

I just looked it up..... $68.62 apiece. Hmmm...... Apparently you had good service from these folks then?  :rolleyes: Fred K.

I just checked Sincere Hobby, and it’s now showing $68.63 US, not including shipping, and still a preorder.

Putting it in the cart, it’s $14 for shipping, so if you got it for $63 shipped, you got a deal that doesn’t appear to still be available.
