( Photos sizes on the Forum [and computer in general] seem to be quite a bit of an unfathomable, concept for many people, even an anathema! )

 If you want to know a bit more about it, see:
http://www.archivemyphotos.org/shoot.html
http://www.microscope-microscope.org/imaging/image-resolution.htm
http://www.canterbury.ac.nz/web/images/resolution.shtml


On Mayhem, photos need to be 640 x 480 pixels (dimensions) & less than 160Kilobytes (data size )

http://www.modelboatmayhem.co.uk/forum/index.php?topic=16854.msg167251#msg167251


( To give you an idea of the scale of the problem, 20 really big photos can easily take up more server space that the rest of the entire written part of the Forum!!!

I'll spit out this post once you have resolved your photo post dilemma Armo61! )

Thank you Martin for your invaluable help re these images. I have now installed an image resizer and will try again as I have supposedly converted what I want into the correct format. Please excuse the ignorance but I am 62 and still learning.
Well will give it a try. Thank you Armo61

If you're still having issue, just email me the photos and I'll do it for you.

( NB. I am working on another option for posting photos, I'm getting a small program  written )

Okay Shipmates I will do this bit by bit. Nimitz is nearing completion. Needed Dark Gray for flight deck enhancements. Black for lots of little jobs, Hull Red for yes the Hull and the Gray I have been using for the rest of the Hull completion.


Nimitz is going through changes in my model. I have some of the Old guard and some of the New taking over. I am trying to make her a working Carrier so you will see aircraft taking off and landing and others being moved around via their tractors etc when I am finished and have installed her crew which I have here and are dying to get on board.


Ok here she is at the moment Oh I forgot, I am awaiting those Magnifiers for the decals on Hornets, Helicopters and others. Most of them are painted and decalled however.

Pictures are not transferring from postimage to the post????? Everything is perfect. Uploads tells you whats happening and when it says redirecting does not redirect to the post being made. ???
Maybe needs a wee adjustment.

Hello Shipmates well some success at last. I had to find the urls of the pikkies to post them in but at least I know whats happening haha. Okay I have tried to make Nimitz a working Carrier. You will see aircraft landing and taking off on the Flight deck and others going to be moved once I place the Tractors and forklifts etc. I am still waiting for Dark Gray to enhance the flight deck, Black for all sorts of bits and pieces and the light gray I am using to finish off the Hull. Still more work but getting there. You will see Older aircraft and the newer styles being introduced as it is in a transition period and really I do love the Phantoms so I wanted to used them. So paint should arrive this week along with my Magnifiers with led lights so I can place the decals on these Hornets and Seahawk and Nighthawk helicopters. Most of the others are painted and decalled now.
Being a glutton for punishment I have purchased the Trumpeter CV-10 Yorktown and will be building her in the WW2 cammo pattern.
Ok thanks for being patient those of you who like carriers like I do and will post again as soon as my paint etc arrives.
I have just to finish off a Fletcher before I start on the Yorktown, but I still have the Missouri but no rush keeps an old fellah busy in his retirement. :-))

Hello shipmates here are some close ups I hope of the F14's landing on Nimitz and also of some crew I have placed last night. These are on areas which will not be dark gray as I want the flight deck to have that worn used look in some areas.













Will be checking for that B..... paint today Hmmmm >>:-(

This looks like it is a "Fletcher" at the same scale as the Lindberg kit.
 
http://www.relishmodels.co.uk/revell-1-144-german-destroyer-class-119-z1-z5-.html
 
Works out to about $65 plus postage, but 20% vat should come of that price.
 
Even with VAT it is still a good buy as the cheapest I could find was $89 plus postage.
 
Am tempted to buy one but I already have the Blue Devil in store, but ..................
