    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

    Thank you Bart.

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