Hi Catfan, what you would need to do is put those photos on a website like, photobucket, or imgbb. I use IMGBB because it's free for a few images. Once those images are on there you would "copy the image link" and click the little picture and put that link in between the 2 IMG boxes. Just keep hitting preview before you post so you can see if it worked. I know it's a pain but a lot of these forum sites use this system.

If it's mechanical, hydraulic, pneumatic, and automated I can build it.

Or if you want to keep using Flickr (which is what I use) you can right click on the image, view page source, then scroll down and down until you find a line of text ending in jpg. Copy that starting with the https and ending in jpg, then paste into the middle of an image link on here, like this:

Hahaha!! Yes this forum is a tad quieter than it used to be a few years ago. Nice weathering by the way. It's certainly a fun thing to do. I only tend to do weathering on models that I've lost all hope with - damaged, poor condition or sometimes duplicates.
Here's a case in point - a Demag shovel that was pretty knackered.





and then I did this 1:16 Case 580B, also in a terrible state with bent loader arms and missing wheels and front axle.



There have been some fantastic weathering photos on here, all very inspiring. Keep up the good work and post more here when you can
