Wow!  Brilliant.

Yes please to pics.

 

You need to open an account with something like Photobucket (it is free) - email and password is all they require.

 

Then, you upload your photos to photobucket and there is an individual link to every photo starting with URL.

 

Just copy and paste that link onto any post you make.

 

Remember to downsize the photos (make them small, preferably under 100kb before you upload them to photobucket)

You will find this on the right of your picture in Photobucket. Click IMG then answer your post in Shetlink. Paste the link straight in and the picture should appear.

I know the feeling, I had to set my ad blocker to not run on their page, why I cannot just attach pics to this post is beyond me???? will try the suggestion mentioned.

Was able to view the "thumbnails".  Quite impressive..  Shows quite a bit of skill was involved.

 

Used to build model aircraft when I was younger so, was interested enough to take a look.

 

Pity that Photobucket wants to bombard(?) me with ads though.

hi Colin, The ads are a pain, I paid £1.50 monthly for the ads to naff off  :ponders:  :ponders:  very invasive.

Yes the Ship is quite big 1250mmX900X500mm approx . now to build a cabinet for it.Took a couple of years because of work etc,mainly at weekends after the gardening  :rolleyes:  :rolleyes: .

Was your aircraft remotely controlled ??.

cheers

Yes, remote controlled..  From simple 2 channel gliders through powered "trainers" to multi channel stuff.

 

Always got more pleasure from building rather than flying(?) maybe because I never built one that retired(?) through old age :razz:

 

Used to belong to a club as well and some of the stuff on show there was superbly crafted.

 

Whole thing was started at school as one of our technical masters used to demostrate his flying skills at school sportsdays etc,
