Ok the holidays and life have been very busy, but I still managed to work on a few things.


Also, is anyone else having difficult posting pictures in the link? I have tried the TMP instructions and I just a picture symbol.

If its anything to with Blogger, its due to the uploading of pictures onto their forums using a long code without JPG suffixes.
I have been annoyed by this 'improvement to service' myself, as have many others!!!

Looks nice! I have been buying Airfix fighters at Hobby Lobby. When their 40% sale runs about once a month they cost 6 dollars for a few of them. I have picked up about 6 or 7 so far. I really like them!

Thank you John! That's exactly what I did. I am happy to see Hobby Lobby is getting more Airfix kits.

That Spitfire is a wonderful kit to put together. The Wildcat's are sitting near my table waiting their turn. I have a Stuka beside them (not a Hobby Lobby buy).

I figured it out, just edit the message after posting, and replace the 'url' at the beginning and end of the picture address with 'img' – this allows TMP to show the picture!

Hi Herkybird,
I must be dense. When I right click on my image the only option I have is "copy image link." When I paste it in, I just get the link and not a Url.

Hmm, difficult. I think you have to post the message with the picture from a different site, like Blogger, then (within 1 hour of posting to TMP) I can edit the TMP post, and alter the address of the picture there – changing the URL's to img.
Have another try – and good luck!

That should work…

Man! I am lost. But, it can be done! I can figure this out.

Thank you.

I recently made a brief guide for another chap having the same problem, I copy it here:

Hi again, I will describe what you do as clearly as I can…

I went to your blog and right clicked, then clicked on the 'Copy Image Address' option.
I then pasted it into my reply (above) which when posted produces a LINK in the message instead of the picture.

I then went to the 'Edit message' tab that appeared on my reply and over-wrote all the 'url's with 'img' these appear at the front and end of the image address I pasted, then updated the message and clicked 'done'.

This makes the image appear instead of the link!

I hope this is helpful!

It is so simple if you are prepared to pay a tiny sum annually to store your images for easy access. I use Imageshacke. The cost per year is that of a burger and fries, with a 175mls glass of Merlot (I was driving)in York, yesterday. I do mean proper old York, in UK.

You just copy and paste the URL and up comes your image (Instantly);
