One more for the road - Suku Suku Scratch Translation!

Post by fulcy » Thu Jan 27, 2005 12:53 am

Alright, so a few years ago I started getting my Dengeki Hobby Magazine subscription - and for a few months they ran this series of how to articles called SukuSuku Scratch - how to scratch build many different things, cast parts, etc. At the time I was just learning how to make custom parts, make molds from these parts, and then cast the parts to make homogeneous parts, and to reproduce parts I needed multiples of - so this series of articles helped me immensely. However, there was one problem - it was all in japanese, and I could only go on what I could glean from the pictures. Long story short, I found a guy who was willing for a small fee to translate 6 or 7 of the articles for me. Once I had the text, I cleaned it up, and then redid the entire page layout to make it all look nice and clean, and then added the pictures and text to it - and got a rather nice result - which I am now sharing with you. This was the first article I had translated - I have several others translated, just need to find the time to format and compile them. Click the pics, and enjoy!

Heya Fulcy,

Who's the translator guy? I could keep him in cash for a long time... ;-)

Great stuff! I'd love to see more if you have it. Do you host these pieces at your own Web site? If so I'll link to them. Otherwise, I wouldn't mind hosting material like this at Gears Online.
If you don't like the news then go make some of your own.

I'd love to have more time to sit down and format the other translations! ;) I have them up on my comcast website, so they are hosted on my own website - but feel free to put them up here too (just give credit where credit's due! ).
