If that sounds like a lot of money, it's because it comes, not in the usual
cardboard slipcover, but in a 6-ring binder with the Zeon emblem stamped on the
front and spine in gold, Now, I knew that this series was intended to go into
an A5 binder, but I didn't know that I was ordering it that way. I don't have a
real problem with it, other than the binder matches the cover of GM6, so I can't
mount the previous volumes in it without clashing, and I'm not in a position to
get the other five binders. Pfui!

This one's is all about Zeon ships, as follows:

Musai Refitted
Endra (see Gundam ZZ above)
Lili Marleen (yes, the retcon gets an entry of its own)
Graf Zepperin [sic]
Chivvay Refitted
Sadalahn (see Gundam ZZ above)

Not much more to say and its getting late for me, anyway.
