    The latest postings on the http://mkmagazin.almanacwhf.ru site have some wonderful ships, any of which would make a pretty terrific paper model. And there are a couple of airplanes, too.

    Seeing as how my Russian (I'm assuming its Russian, I do know its Cyrillic) is a little rusty :? :? :? :? :? :? :? :? :? :?

    Let the pages load completely and read the pictures. :wink: Hull topography, side and top views, equipment details...scale ruler....what else is needed for design, other than possibly color swatches?

    For translation, try www.imtranslator.com . Works OK, but you have to think a bit. And technical stuff really throw it.

    The spirit is willing, but the flesh is weak. Trans to Russian. Trans back to English. Result. The vodka is strong, but the meat has gone bad. Hmm.

    Something got lost in translation. The meaning, perhaps.......

    Also www.translate.ru - does whole web pages without the Babelfish limit. Seems to do a slightly better job on Russian to English than most.
