How up to date is Peter's modelmaker's manual? I was just curious as to whether there were any major additions or alterations in the way of updates to Peter's modelmaker's manual book? The book was published some time ago, so I was curious if there were any changes or new discoveries in recent years that would differ from the book.

I took this one out of the mothballs, because I have a question about the book.
Three weeks ago I ordered the book via www.bol.com (Netherlands), and to my believe I have gotten the wrong edition of the book. On the website there are two editions described. One has 150 pages, and one has 160 pages.
Is this correct? Are there two editions of the book? If so, it might be useful to mention this in the description of the book on this website.

I purchased this book not too long ago, so I thought I'd look mine over. Mine is the "150 page" issue. With that being said...I should note that on the inside pages (where the copyright year and other printing info can be found) it is printed, "This edition authorized for sale only in the USA... and Canada" (I live in the US).
That tells me that there might be differences according to geographic location. The 150 page book could be a "North America only" issue, where the 160 page book might be for another region.
Is this book also printed in German? Could the extra 10 pages be on account of different languages and the translations needing extra "room" to get all of the content included? Extra characters might require a total of 10 extra pages over the span of the entire book, depending on the language. It's a theory, anyway.
Are you saying that after your copy arrived, you noticed it contained only 150 pages? What is printed on the Copyright page? What language is your edition printed?
I'd be curious to hear if someone has a 160 page edition out there and what are the differences to the 150 page book. I wonder what those extra 10 pages might contain? Hmmmmmm....

Marco and Matt,
I haven't heard of any changes to this book since it was first published.
I just had a quick look at my copy (the 2005 printing) and there are 168 pages total, comprising 10 introductory pages (i-x), 150 numbered pages and 8 pages of colour photos (unnumbered). It's likely the web site description is giving the sum of the intro and the numbered pages which adds up to 160.
