Stay away from the 1:144 GP-02A. I'd rather build a resin kit than have
to put up with this kit, which has been named worst Bandai kit by many
Gundam model builders!

The 0083 line are not HG kits, and since they are about 7 years older than
the 08th MS Team kits, expect lower quality and a bit of painting to do.
The GP-02A is another story... MAJOR REPAINT NECESSARY!

>Would the 0083 kits look presentable without any painting?

Maybe the GP-03...

Yeah, go with the MG kits. Trust me, it's well worth the money.
