As far as rules, those sound good.  Mobile suits are also portrayed
hte vector movement system.  As for figures, do what I did - spend some
converting (adding shields, blobs of putty for thrust packs) 6mm (1/300)

scale infantry, especially those from sci-fi lines.  The GZG ones work 
rather well, especially the NSL as their helmets have a very MS style.

For the really nasty MS and Mobile Armors, try designing them as small 

I actually found that the custom fighter rules found on the web (sorry. 
don't have the addy available) were perfect for designing more detailed 
mecha.	Assigning names like Full Armor, Full Vernian, and Trop to suits

with specific combinations of features makes it easy to quickly add to
modify a basic fighter design or convert your favorite designs to stat.

The really complicated thing (I never did figure out an equitable
are funnels and bits.  I'm thinking that they should count as an extra 
attack, made at a range from the Mobile Suit, bits having less range
funnels due to their requirement for a physical coupling.
