Yeah, I'm really interested in mecha designers and what they have done for
Gundam. Is there an english list out on the net? If not, I wouldn't mind
starting one and putting it up on my site, (I would need some help with the
info though.)

Kunio Okiwara
Mamoru Nagano
Mika Akitaka
Hajime Katoki
Yutaka Izubuchi
Syd Mead
Kazuhisa Kondo

Are these the only mecha designers to have worked on Gundam?
