Technically, there is only 1 model of V2 Gundam. The Assault and Buster
were removable modules which aren't mutually exclusive, as there is an
Assault Buster V2 as well.

Bandai's been weird on their kit releases, you never get a complete lineup
with any series:

1/144 scale: V2, V2 Buster
1/100 scale: V2, V2 Assault, V2 Buster
SD: V2 Assault Buster

It looked like Bandai never got it right until the SD version, which allows
you to build any configuration of the V2 Gundam (plain, A, B, and AB).
With the 1/144 there's no way to build a V2 AB, and you need to buy 2 kits
to kitbash your own V2 AB. I just got the SD G Generation Zero version of
the SD V2 AB, but haven't got a chance to pull out my old SD V2 AB to see
if they've added anything to make the GG0 version different.
