    Thank you my friends.

    Now I looking into the Google Photo.
    And also , I've tried to download this photo to my PC from Photobucket and copy and paste here.
    Bit too small but I may have to accept this for now.

    Click image for larger version.

    Looks like I will be able to continue posting in anyway.

    I think the sudden change of the policy of Photobucket is not fair.
    Maybe many of the user have had in trouble right now.
    Even only a few bucks for month, I have been a paying user of the Photobucket.
    At least they had to notified us prior to do this. I feel like they hostage(ransom?)
    my previous photos for $40 per month.
    When you get old, sometimes these things are really upset you.
    Maybe I'm loosing the flexibility to adopt the things over come.
    Maybe I was a minority that using the Photobucket in this thread.

    Thank you very much, Hagoth-san and Cadeus-san.

    And I'm so sorry about loosing all the pics of the previous pages.
    I have no guts to recover all of them.

    Yuumi-san, I agree, that seems like a rip-off for Photobucket to suddenly demand that much money. I think Hagoth's suggestion about Google Photos is a good one. They are less likely to pull a stunt like that in the long run (I hope).

    If it makes you feel any better, when I click on that small photo you just posted, it opens up very large in my browser window. And, small or large, it looks delicious.

    Another possibility is if you have an Amazon Prime account ($132 a year). That apparently also comes with photo hosting space and 3rd party sharing and might be more stable over the long run than smaller companies:

    Thanks for the kind words for me, Bones-san.


    It's nice to know that I got many reliable men right beside me always.


    Oh, yes, I have an Amazon Prime account.
    I didn't know that they have those service.
    Yes you right, Amazon might be reliable.


    So, I am going to check those and pick convenient one for an old man like me.

    Thanks again,

    Now I know.
    Photobucket have changed their policy.
    I can't post any pics in there without pay $400 for year.
    And all the previous photo on this threads are banned.

    Does anybody know any other good site to save my further photo?

    I'm in the same boat Katsu-san.

    Just now making the hard transition to imgur. But I'm loving this new service!

    Very fast uploads (50 uploads per hour max)

    Easy to use code for copy pasting build/progress pics.

    Best of all, FREE (at least for now . . .)

    Hello Katsu-san, Just wanted to see if you are ok.
    Just saw some footage on tv regarding the flooding in Japan, if I recall correctly you do not live in that region but just checking..

    Thank you very much for your kind care for us, Jim-san, my friend!
    We are all OK. However, still some of the people are missing out there in Western Japan area.


    I registered some pics on IMGUR for now.
    It looks good so far and thanks my friend for your help and advises.

    I was struggling for the design of the mid deck during the last 3 days.

    Here are some photo of that part.























    How is that?
    Thanks for looking.

    Yesterday, my daughters #2 came home and spent a hot summer day together.
    That was a hot day and they were playing like a 10 years old kids.
    I don't know why but I shedded a tear a little.





    Again, thanks for looking.

    Wow, Tom-san, nice and almost 99% OK.

    Anata no neko ga onamae wa nan desu ka?
    Anata no neko (wa or no) onamae wa nan desu ka?

    I can't explain you good enough but
    GA and WA take part of various conjunction : Watashi ga(wa) suru. (I do. I will do)
    NO means (of, one's)

    MY, MINE ( Watashi-no)
    YOUR ( Anata-no)
    HIS (Kare-no)

    As I am telling you above, I again realize that English and Japanese are composed on completely different concept. Japanese tongue is very unique.
    All the Japanese students must attend English classroom once or twice a day, 5 days for week more than 6 years.
    Then only 0.3 percent or less of us will be able to speak English. Most of us give it up before even start to learn.


    Watashi no neko no namae wa Cherunenko aka Cheru desu.

    Now you have to tell me when you find something wrong in my English.

    Thank you, sensei! While I suspect English is a more difficult language to learn (due mainly to its borrowing from so many other languages,) Nihon-go has a considerable amount of subtlety to it.

    Tom-san, I knew you are the kind of man always try to learn something new.

    Well, so much pain to share so little progress.

    End cap of the aft section. Still I'm not satisfied. I need another idea for this.







    And to the nose section.







    Huuum....


    Main Guns

    Maybe add antenna clusters, something like the nose of the Sulaco.

    Really liking the front end treatment. Impressive. Wouldn't want to be looking down those barrels.

    As for the end caps on the aft section I think I see what you mean. They don't seem to blend. How about turning them into mirrored ram scoops (similar triangle orientation as they are now) about 3 times the current length and blend them into the top and bottom sections. Like ducts going into the round intake looking features you already have in there. As for the middle section on the back side (where the screen is) turn that into a series of vertical bypass type doors that tapper back into the pipes. I hope that idea makes sense or triggers a new genius configuration in your brain the likes of which we have never conceived of. You do set a high bar with your creativity.

    Oh, yes, (cough x 3). That's what I have been thinking.(cough x 3).
    Seriously, you got the exact point what I troubled about and you got me a very attractive and considerable idea like Leol-san suggested me.
    Let me take another few days to think about it.

    Today, I went on building the nose section.
    I was trying to design the mid deck of the nose.

    I wanted to fix up a commanding room here.
    It will be a wide floor with large windows.

    I drew some sketches and picked one.



    Then I traced a sketch onto the transparent sheet to see what would it looks like.







    It's the window like a shape of 'Deckard's oldfashioned glass' sorrounded by a several vertical struts.


    Since I wanted to have a window with a clear glasses, I used a acrylic sheet.

    In my mind, there were two method to make it.
    One is to brake down the window into six parts to cut out the acrylic plate and glue them together.
    that was so complicated and was difficult to make it with no trouble.
    Measured and cut out each parts and adjust the measurements of sizes and angles and carefully glued each parts. It took more than 4 hours.




    The other one is using a heat bend method of an acrylic plate I used to use.
    I cut out the one long plate and bent it and cut it in three and glue them at once.


    That was so easier by far than I thought. It took only about 30 minutes.



    And here's a results.

    One on the left is made by cut and glue.
    The right side one is made by heat bent then cut and glue.



    Here's a cut and glue without bend.



    And here's a bent one.



    The clarity is obvious.
    I worried about the distortion around the bent line but that was OK.



    This is it for today. I haven't even think about the way I make the window frames yet.

    Oh, Leol-san, here's my recent work of bento box.

    Monday was a burger box with Mexican fried potatoes(it was just sprinkle some Tacos sauce mix powder)



    Yesterday was an Omelette concealed some rice fried with tomato sauce inside. And soy sauce flavored grilled chicken wing stick.

    This morning I forgot to take a photo.
    That was a beef patty stuffed in eggplant, green pepper and zucchini and deep fried.
    She gave me a mail 'Fantastic!'

    Thank you very much my friends,

    I love the angled windows - I think I would have expected them to bend outward at the center, rather than inward. I like being surprised.

    Those are some beautiful meals.

    Yeah, I really like that bended glass and the technique. Looking forward to seeing if little crew members will eventually occupy the Command Room.

    The bento boxes look delicious as always, especially the omelet with rice and shrimp.
