just in case u see this book on FSS models...

Post by Rubel Colus » Sun Apr 22, 2007 2:33 pm

content is similar to the recently released Factorys 2007, except that the text is in chinese (altho i heard there are lots of problems with the translations/names), and this book is a hardcover.

so juz a heads-up juz in case someone buys this book expecting it to be something else. :)

Knowing it's from China, it must be a re-print from a purchase copy, in which the quality of color can't be good.

And even if it's good, the print out is stil in Japanese. So what's the pt. to buy this ver., it's no difference than the Japanese ver.

hmm, gotta agree the quality is not as good as the original of course.

most of the bootlegs are in the original language, but for this case, they managed to translate it to chinese, although some names/terms etc are not understood by the translator, so those words will appear funny.

Just for the record, i'm not asking people to support bootlegs, instead this is warning juz in case people buy it thinking that it is an original or completely new book. ;)

I understand. But from that link, it seems all the description remains in Japanese. All those words are Japanese, not Chinese. I see that the front page is Chinese, but besides that, the remain of the shown pages are all Japanese.

Thank you for the link. The images are interesting, but I wonder as to the value of the book. From what I've seen, it's not worth buying.

now that I can take a closer look at it, you're right. But the problem is, it's in simplified chinese, in which I can't read some of them. It seems traditional chinese is too hard for the publisher to use
