Katoki did not design the MK-II HG; I'm not sure, but I think it was
Okawara. The illustration of the MK-II in the HG instruction book is
Katoki's design and art. I'm talking about the B-Club 1:144 resin kit.

Katoki's MK-II is a more boxy version; enlarged shoulders, more
horizontal chest top, thinner legs and more panel lines. I felt the
MG MK-II, while still having great proportions, could have used more
of the top heavyness of the Katoki version. I prefer the Katoki feet
too; the MG's are too much like hooves.

I dunno. I'm sure you can find them at the Gundam Project.
