Ricoh - anyone attempt the Recesky modification?

Ricoh Talk Forum: Digital Photography Review - forums.dpreview.com
this looks like a cheap very small Rolliflex type camera modified to salvage the upper portion "waist-finder" portion of the camera to mount on your GR,  or GRii hot-shoe, giving a unique shooting experience?  From the article it comes in kit form, the article shows how to do it in a Japanese issue of GR Deep World "Mook" magazine, but sadly can't read Japanese. The only reason I know it's a Recesky camera is I looked on ebay and found a picture of one most are less than 15 or 20 dollars from China.

small 2 page article, all in Japanese

Mook Ricoh GR Journal

no english at all, but decent pictures, of the Recesky film camera.

USE CAUTION: I believe there may be two or more versions of this Recesky "kit" camera. In the GR Mook, journal, you can see a small symbol "6" on the top of the viewfinder, all of the one's I'm looking at online have the lettering "SJ", and is the larger wider Recesky camera, I sent an email to a camera store trying to sort this out, I'm sure the modded Recesky is the smaller "narrow" version.
