Doing a little testing with and also giving Google Photos a second try after discussing Google picture posting issues with gene1.

Postimage:  using  Direct Link.  Also the same as "View Image info")

   (CSS Virginia from the Lindberg 1/245 scale kit with some additional parts.)

 EDIT 8/30/18:  Since Google Photos links have failed, here is what should have been displayed:





Google Photos: Using View image info (by right clicking on Google photo)       

edit: FAILED 1 day later.

   (4 Monitors. From the left: :  Verlinden 1/200,  Pyro 1/210 rescalled to 1/200 with new turret (turret not in final position), Pyro1/210 kit, and the original Lindberg Monitor in 1/245 scale.)


Google Photos Using  "Copy image location":

edit:  failed  1 day later!



Google Photo using Copy Image  (Right clicking on photo) and paste directly into the POST:

edit: still working 1 day later.

EDIT:  FAILED 2 days later!



 Google Photos using "Share", and "Get Link" :  FAILS!




I will watch to see if the Google Photos stay visible for more than 2 days!

EDIT 8/30/18. No they did not stay.  broken likns all!

Good thing I use IMGUR, Flickr, and   




 For those interested: The camera I used was angled slightly to one side and so was giving a distorted view of the size of the models. The lens also distorts the picture by adding a bit of curvature to the objects at the sides.   I did not take a larger shot and then crop to get a more resonable representation of the subjects.  In this case the Verlinden model is actually the same size as the 1/200 re-scaled Pyro. And the 1/200 re-scaled Pyro is quite a bit longer than the original 1/210 model although they don't look it in this shot. 

It's just a test of Posting not Taking pictures...


Another "EDIT":

The 1/200 re-scalled Pyro had additonal deck added to the bow to get the Turret to sit further back and also to bring the hull closer to 1/200 scale.  The intent is to show the Monitor Before the March 9th 1862 battle using the Pyro kit, and using the Verlinden model to show the changes made after the battle.
