Yes, the ACL-98 Larder article is a bit hard to read. It's a pretty close reflection of the Japanese, which is also fairly awkwardly worded in a lot of cases. Additionally, there seems to be some confusion if the designation is 'ACL-98' or 'AFL-98'. I'll have to look into it a little more.
At any rate, I'm working on another large feature, featuring one of the three silhouettes above. Any guesses as to which one?
Also, after this feature, I think I'm going to move into some model kit manual translations, there's a lot of interesting things, particularly in the old MSV series. If you have a kit that you want to know more about, I'm accepting scans!
