was that the beginning of Operation Rheinübung, Martin.................not many if any other times that those two beautiful and powerful ships sailed together, and both had unhappy endings.


Sadly an ignominious end for the Prinz Eugen.......used as a guinea pig in the 1946 Bikini Atoll nuclear tests when she capsized and sank

Hello Neil
   
Yes, I can see the German battleship perfectly.
 The postings that get me are the ones where a member posts saying here's the boat I'm
working on now...and a fellow member replies that they are impressed with what they are seeing. But I cannot see anything!
     My thanks to all who replied in an attempt to help me out.
 However, I am registered and I am logged in. So what next?
     I've added modelboatmayhem to my safe senders list.

Hi Shipnut

May help to know what you are using to view the internet:

A) What computer operating system & version are you using?
B) What internet browser are you using?
C) Do you have any additional firewall software installed? - if so what?

Are you looking at old threads where photos have been lost , or when we had the great Meltdown, or the recent loss of pictures on a picture hosting site which a few members used..perhaps post a link to one of the threads where you can not see the pictures.

TigerTiger and TheLongBuild

      I briefly tried to find a posting where the photos didn't appear...and I can't find one!
      I'm going to give up now.
      Each time I went to a posting with photos they were there.
      I think, as you say, the possibility exists that I just happened on some old postings and the
      photos had gone.
      Thanks to all for your suggestions

Hugh,

Don't despair had that happen on a current thread.
Everyone could see the pics but me.
Almost gave up but n the end was a gremlin causing the problem, Gremlin now gone and all OK.
There are threads where you will not be able to view the photos because the authors have either removed them or access to that account is no longer available.
Pain in the proverbial
There is a thread on here about photobucket which is worth reading.
Simply put its about posters who don't post directly into their threads but use links to other sources, flickr and stuff and when their accounts are no longer available no pics.
Don't understand it because it stuffs up the build and make sit useless as you say.
It is simple enough to load the pic direct from your computer to the thread.
So that may explain some of your problems.

This link, click on it, is an example of what I call a useless thread and should be deleted.

You may have come across something similar, there are a few about.

 It's known on the forum as as the Photobucket syndrome.   The reason a lot of threads are blotted with nasty icons rather than the original images.

I think that may be a different issue, looks like Paul has moved or deleted the photos from Photobucket...  {:-{

Yes, I can see the Bismarck photos from your link.

However, my Photo*ucket photos from earlier this year still show their blocking image
