Hi Mike,

When inserting an image from Flickr, click on the Share arrow. That will bring up a dialog box with a number of tabs along the top. Click the BBCode tab (should be the last one in the current Flickr configuration). You'll get a lot of link crud. I copy and paste it into a blank Word file so I can look at it. 

What you want is the info in the second line, specifically what is between img and /img. In this example: https://live.staticflickr.com/65535/51916537205_71ecaccae6.jpg

Copy that link, click the little photo image with the mountains and the sun in the ribbon at the top of the text box you type in on the Forum. A dialog box will appear. Paste the link into Source and click OK. You should get something like this:



You can control the size of the image either by selecting an image size from the dialog box on Flickr or modifying the size in the dialog box on the Forum before you click OK.

Hope this helps.

As I recall, you could also just click on your photo...hit 'copy link location'...then just paste that into your forum post using the image icon, as Tim described above.

Hello!

It would sure be a pity to give up on such a nice truck!

Granted, posting them is a bit of a pain... You know where...

But it's a beauty! I have one of the doble drives in my stash and I want to build it with Italeris air ride some day, and I WISH it turned out this nice when it's finished some sunny day!

Have a nice day

All comments and critique welcomed. Thanks for your honest opinions!

A beauty indeed and it would have been a shame to miss seeing it.

Thanks Pawel for re-posting.

And to the OP, posting pics is a bit cumbersome, but not after you get used to it. I do hope you don't give up. I like seeing these big rigs built up by you guys who know how to do it.

I agree, work this great needs to be seen and enjoyed by the members of this forum.  You hear a lot of complaining about these old AMT truck kits on the modeling sites but kudos to the guys who can turn them into a gem like this rig.  The color scheme and weathering sure bring back a lot of memories for me.  Excellent build!  Please post more of your big rig builds.

Yeah, well, Greg, here's the thing ... you're right. "Copy Image Address" (for Chrome) will work just as well. But why do a single step when 8 will get you to the same place?

Very Nice!

 We don't see Consolidated Freight trucks down here in my part of Texas very often. Excellent job on a "Day"tripper!
