  I think you'll find the classic version tucked away in the pages of the
MS Encyclopedia...

  At this point I doubt it, but there's a lot of mecha overlap between
the previous Cross Dimension game, Blue Destiny, and 08th MS Team, so you
could consider them as occupying the same corner of Gundam continuity. ;-)

  No model of the classic one either; it was a sketch that Okawara did
for Kodansha's film books, and was subsequently rolled into the MSV
"family." Those exotic Federation fighter planes and the Agg, Zogok, et
al are also sorta MSVs by association. The MSX designs, though - the
Pezun mobile suits, Galbaldy Alpha, and Heavy Gundam - musta come later,
'cause they don't appear in the circa-1983 MSV books.
