Anyone know if this is available outside Japan? It seems to be dual-language, but I can't tell for sure.

No they don't deliver outside of Japan.

Sorry.

Says international economy shipping is 2,050 yen for the US. Express is 4,400yen !! http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_eek.gif

they actually have this stuff in English! Click on the little truck next to the book. The next page has a line "See this text in English"

Cheers.

Ooh did ya see the Zero fighter DVD.. wonder what that is ?

The description on this page

http://www.maruzen.co.jp/cgi-bin/mis?Cgifrom=m2-ezy-03&MBN=MJ04097871

says that it is only partly translated into English; but apparently over half of the content is photos so maybe this doesn't matter so much. Looks like an interesting book.

Pretty sure you can order books from amazon.co.jp overseas; I know it works the other way round (I can order books via .co.jp from NA). Software and maybe DVDs are a different story though.

Cheers

Brief review, ordering info, by a store which specializes in this kind of book and in delivering worldwide.

You could also try Hobbylink Japan. I have seen that book listed and it was in stock as of a couple of days ago. Plus many other great Japanese titles like Maru Mechanic and FAOWs.

Its a pure pictorial, that means lot of shots of nice a/c, but apart from that little technical detailing.

The title of the book is 'The Hien fighter-emperor‚‚ā¨ôs magnificent, 244th fighter group photo chronicle'. A lot of Japanese book have English for titles etc. to make it look cool. It could be readable for none Japanese speakers but I'm not sure. Looks a good book for any one insisted in the Hien though http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif.
