    I am very impressed by how well this works now. I've just been having a look at this Dutch site:

    http://www.modelbouwforum.nl/forums/duikboten/

    The automatic website translation works very well. (I think you need to put it on your toolbar.)

    Lots of interesting comments on Lipo's in subs, the problems with the Americans (and SubPirates)etc etc

    Richard, Is there any formal way we can let the Dutch know we are here too? They may wish to translate us.

    That's an interesting site David...I do like that Chinese Song class boat.

    Anyway...yes, I can send them a link to our forum via their forum, no problems, and if I ask in Dutch maybe they will add a link on their site back to ours.

    Hi Richard,
    They reviewed the Song class and it does look good doesn't it?
    Yes, if you give them a link. (In your best Google Dutch!) that would be good.

    Many moons ago I very nearly bought an Ark Models Dragon Shark sub (info HERE) but I was put off by tales of non delivery, so I didn't, but I do like that Song class.

    I'll send them a link David, see what happens.

    They know already, I mentioned it to Raf some time ago. He's Belgian but they are all pretty multilingual, so probalably dont need to rely on Google Translate like we do!

    Thanks Ramesh.
    Google Translate has finally come of age. Really works well.
    Can you let us know about other model sub groups you would recommend?

    Here are others I post on
    http://www.modelisme.com/forum/navi-sous-marins/
    http://www.rcboot.de/forum/
    http://www.forumsousmarin.fr/forum/

    I make point in posting in the language of the board and also the English version incase the translation is gobbledygook (usually is if it is a longer post) and they understand English.

    Thanks Ramesh for the sites.

    And thank you Google!
