I think that the MS-2 designation is a typo for the MS-1 on both the All-Aero.com sites and the Aviastar.org site amongst others. According to Kenneth Munson in his US Commercial Aircraft book, the MS-1 was the third aircraft from Solar and followed the earlier XM-1 trimotor, which was modified as the TM-1 and later as SE-1, with the last designation showing the largest change to date, into a single-engine configuration. This is the only pic I have seen thus far of the sole example, which was flown, amongst others, by Charles Lindbergh.
