  Nope. Okawara did the rough drafts of the Mk.II and Hizack, which were
then "cleaned up" by Kazumi Fujita, who also created the Z Gundam. (Nagano
also took a shot at the Z Gundam's head - his antennae-less version appears
in silhouette in the first version of the Z Gundam opening.)

  Ugh, big project. Maybe I'll throw this in when I do my upcoming revision
to the Gundam Project's mecha listings.
