I have tried using the insert image, but it asks for a url which I don't have, so I've used the attach button which normally works, but for some reason it didn't, has now though, although their small not as large as others have posted

You need to use an image hosting site, there are plenty of them. Photobucket is popular. I use www.postimage.org which is simple and reliable.

Don't use Photobucket unless you are willing to pay them $400 per year to be able to display your images on another site!

Have you checked your old posts recently? Here is one of your old threads from last year which no longer has photos

http://www.eagletransporter.com/foru...d.php?t=161269

Photobucket changed its terms and conditions without notice last month and have messed up forums all over the internet.

Actually, if you read the small print on this forum, the same is also true.
If you post anything on the internet, you do so at the risk of spreading it across the world without intellectual property rights. Ho-hum.

I'm now totally confused with this paint colour, after watching the tv show, looking at countless photos of the tv series and model makers creations, and being advised on the colour I'm now none the wiser, these are my choices, before weathering I must add and it will be matt not gloss, but the photo with the fuselage is the recommended and the pod is my own choice, darkened/weathered I think is more like the real colour, all opinions welcome

I think it is well known that there were many models made of TB2, two in particular that not only varied in colour but also shape and markings, and Derek Meddings said himself the later version never looked quite right to him. I get the impression the paint colour itself never changed over the series, but because of changes in photographic exposure, film stock and other variables, it could often appear quite different.

Personally, I prefer a "yellow-green" as opposed to a "blue-green", but I think a lot will ultimately end up as personal taste. One thing I would say though is it was never glossy. Much closer to a "satin" or "silk" finish semi-gloss, but remember the "dirtying-down" should always be matte, (except for oily areas like the lifting rams), and a general coating of muck is going to reduce both shininess and saturation, (brilliance of colour).

I discovered this myself with the Elevator cars where they stated a Ford Carnival Red, (often used on emergency vehicles, and probably TB3 too) which is bright, saturated and very red, not the burnt orange I expected, but once a) the dirt, and b) the film stock, are added the original colour changes dramatically to what you would expect to see.

One final thing, try to work from the latest HD BluRays that have been mastered from the original 35mm negatives, DO NOT use stills, as these are often taken with a still camera using different film and exposures.
