You need to click on the "Insert Image" icon at the top of the editor (looks like a mountain and a red sun), which should put a pair of IMG tags in the message between square brackets. In between the middle square brackets ][ of these tags, you need to include the "Direct Link" address for the actual picture. That way you get the full sized image and not the thumbnail. You have pasted the "Hotlink for website" addresses, which won't work inside this phpBB driven forum.

Yves
Your panther is looking great. The Winstone stops look amazing. The pipes do look good. Wondering if the exhaust housing has the flat faces on them tho? Perhaps some surfacer or milliput to make them completely rounded? Thanks for restoring all your images - you build is an excellent reference.
Best regards
Bob
