The XVX-016 Gundam Aerial is the titular Mobile Suit from the upcoming Mobile Suit Gundam- the Witch from Mercury anime series scheduled to air this fall! The Ochs Earth Corporation developed the XVX-016 Gundam Aerial on Mercury, where its pilot, Suletta Mercury, spent most of her childhood before taking the XVX-016 Gundam Aerial to the ASticassia School of Technology to hone her skills as a Mobile Suit pilot. The Gundam Aerial utilizes powerful GUND FORMAT technology to remotely control an array of Bit Staves, each with an individual propulsion system and beam cannon. The XVX-016 Gundam Aerial’s performance is in-line with current Mobile Suit technology with a standard pilot at the helm; in the hands of Suletta Mercury, however, the Gundam Aerial can outperform conventional Mobile Suits with relative ease!

Included alongside the HG Gundam Aerial for accessories:

  • Beam Rifle
  • GUND Bit Stave x11
  • Beam Blade Effect
  • Escutcheon Shield Bracket
  • Beam Saber x2


The HG Gundam Aerial features a polycap-free construction comprised entirely of newly-molded parts, a trend that will hopefully continue with the upcoming HGWFM releases this fall! The HG Gundam Aerial’s polycap-free construction ensures the model will hold a solid pose for years to come! This model features double-jointed knees and swiveling thighs, providing a wide range of motion to create dynamic poses. This model utilizes unique foil stickers to represent the full activation of the Mobile Suit’s permet-material components.

Weapons and Other Notable Attributes 

Builders can attach all eleven of HG Gundam Aerial’s Bit Staves to the Escutcheon Shield Bracket to form the Mobile Suit’s shield. Like its predecessor, the Gundam Lfrith, The HG Gundam Aerial can achieve an alternate Bit-on Form where the Bit Staves reconfigure themselves, attaching themselves to a series of hardpoints built into the Mobile Suit’s frame. Two of these Bit Staves can connect to the HG Gundam Aerial’s Beam Rifle for improved power output and accuracy. This model also includes a super-cool Beam Effect to replicate the Beam Rifle’s melee mode.

This kit includes:

7 Runners total (A, B1, B2, C, D, E, F)
Total Piece Count – 140 Pieces
Foil Stickers

By implementing the technique of Top Coating, you can do a great deal to help preserve the longevity of your models. This process will protect the original plastic of your model kit and prepare it for any additional modeling techniques to follow.

You can drastically improve your results by making the details pop on the HG WFM #03 XVX-016 Gundam Aerial with Panel Lining. The simplest solution for this is Gundam Markers or Tamiya Panel Line Fluid. Making your own panel wash is always a great option too! It is always recommended to Topcoat with clear gloss beforehand, as some of the products commonly used for Panel Lining will degrade the untreated plastics over time.

Another way to keep adding detail is by applying Stickers/Marking DecalsTop Coating before application will help decals stick to the surface much better. Using Top Coat after application will help hide the seams on traditional sticker decals as well as waterslides. This additional step will also keep them from peeling over time. Using Decals is a great way to add an even greater level of detail to your scale models.

    Been waiting for this kit to drop. While I haven’t seen every episode of WFM, this new Gundam iteration became one of my new favorites upon seeing teaser photos.

    The kit itself is simple, well articulated, looks great. Stiffer joints then most kits, but honestly that’s for the best.
