    I have just registered in the fórum , so hello to all the members.

    Just a few words concerning my experience as a model submarine builder:

    I started with the hobby 9 years ago and I have built 6 models using different types of diving systems. So I think I know quite well advantages and disadvantages of each one.

    My first model was the type XXI from Robbe that I have fully upgraded into a static diving .
    The last model I have built is Revell Skipjack using a gear pump and rubber bag as diving system.

    I am looking forward to share experiences with the fórum members

    Hi Eduardo, nice model.......I also like your approach to get your sub under tension without opening the WTC.

    Thank you Bart.

    The battery can also be loaded without the need of opening the WTC.
