I haven't the foggiest. I know there was a essay on the meaning of letters
preceeding the MS/MA model numbers, but I haven't managed to ever find it
again :(

hold on a moment. Camilles first encounter with Rosamia was before his
first encounter with Scirocco was it not? If I recall correctly, Rosamia
was also in a transformed MS. I'm getting confused.

it wasn't that bad...maybe it was because it was such a beast f an MS that
Camille was so surprised. I'd certainly s**t my pants of what appeared to
me a spacecraft of some sort, pulled up 5-10 metres in front of me and
transformed into an MS.

You last statement is probably more correct than mine. >_< But now think
more carefully. The Methus has almost no torso...similar to what we
'expect' (I don't know of that is the correct word to use) in the torso of
ZG. I'll have to look at Methus more carefully to look for not so obvious
transformations. I am nore likely inclined to believe that the Methus is
structurally and functionally more realted to ZG than the 100Shki or the
Rick Dias

arghh, stuff those piddly plastic kitsets, go for the resin ZG Fujita
version :) Now that is sweeter than the MG hands down, so what if it
doesn't transform?
