    Nothing you are doing is causing this, Photobucket just recently cracked down on 3rd party hosting. In otherwords, if you posted your pictures from photobucket, they want you to pay for a premium package. For me it ends a relationship with Photobucket.
    If you can cut, drill, saw, hit things and swear a lot, you're well on the way to building a working model sub.

      Modified the ejector draining holes, wrong in position...later I'll modify also the joint between the pressure hull and the external case, in bow section, wrong too...
      Start to cut off the plastic deck for replacing with photohetched one, and started the work of sanding the internal hull, visible in my model...

        Still working on internal surface of the bow hull casing, not printed by Trumpeter to be visible....the ribs visible between forward drainage holes are still incomplete, with only one part of the two ones glued...

          Continues the work on internal part of the forward hull; the ribs will be visible only from outside, through the drainage holes....
