Don't think it has anything to do with the forums software , if so this would be accuring more and I'm sure Dave would have investigated on the root cause .

I wonder if the issue is with the photo hosting sites themselves ?

Or the server itself on those hosting sites ?

It's a Chrome thing due to Mixed Content (an https site containing http images)

I need to get the host moved from http to https - I'm working on that

But my images are not on a HTTPS site and they work?! Or did misunderstand something?!

A very beautiful build, Richard. It looks very neat and authentic... I am struggling with this kit at present, not sure if I can actually get it together, but yours is certainly motivation! BTW, I can see your photos both at home and work on different computers and both using Google Chrome... Regards, Marc.

A few things about the kit

I didn't try and bend the seat back, I cut a new one out of plastic card

I didn't try to bend up that fuel tank - I cut out the sides and made up a new tank using card. I had to modify the tank anyway to take the drive for the Alkan synchronising gear

The bottom of the fuselage came out concave! I partly filled the cavity with a triangle of plastic, then bonded a complete strip of plastic right along the bottom of the fuselage.

If you try to use a Roden engine, it doesn't fit in the cowling. Making that cowling in two halves is a rotten trick!

I couldn't get the wing and struts to work at all. In the end, I drilled the ends of the struts (all of them) and fitted wire pins. Then it all worked, although the vee struts in front of the cockpit have come out wonky (don't look)

What are you having trouble with?
