RG #20 XXXG-01W Wing Gundam EW
The XXXG-01W Wing Gundam EW is a masterful redesign of Kunio Okawara’s original Wing Gundam design created by Hajime Katoki! This design comes from the Mobile Suit Gundam Wing Endless Waltz: Glory of Losers manga series, which retells the main plot of the original anime with all new Katoki designs for most of the Mobile Suits. The XXXG-01W Wing Gundam is one of the five G-Team Gundams constructed for use during Operation Meteor. The XXXG-01W Wing Gundam excels in maneuverability thanks to the pair of wings fixed to the Mobile Suit’s backpack. Both wings split into smaller sub-wings to help adjust the Mobile Suit’s speed. This equipment allowed the XXXG-01W Wing Gundam to fly around the in-atmosphere while in Mobile Suit Mode.
Included alongside the Wing Gundam EW for accessories:
- Buster Rifle
- Beam Saber
- Energy Cartridge Pod x2
- 1/144 Heero Yuy Figure
- Action Base Adapter
- Action Base Adapter for Bird Mode
The RG Wing Gundam EW is one of many early Real Grade models utilizing pre-molded inner frame pieces in its assembly. These parts combine hard and soft plastics to create large movable joint sections, to which builders apply additional frame pieces and armor over the pre-molded parts. The RG Wing Gundam EW uses twice as many pieces as its High Grade counterpart, providing much greater color accuracy on the 1/144th scale. The Wing Gundam EW uses the same MS Joint parts as the RG #17 Wing Gundam Zero EW, providing an excellent range of motion for dynamic and expressive posing. Unlike Wing Zero, the RG Wing Gundam EW can transform into Bird Mode for improved atmospheric flight. This transformation does not require any additional pieces, only utilizing built-in articulation and relocated parts to create a convincing Bird Mode.
Weapons and Other Notable Attributes –
Each armament features updated designs loaded with surface detail without straying from the silhouette of the source material. These weapons feature the same excellent color separation as the Wing Gundam EW, providing some of the best-looking 1/144 scale weapons Bandai has ever made! The Wing Gundam EW’s Buster Rifle features removable energy cartridges for builders to swap out and replace with the additional cartridges from the Energy Cartridge Pods. The Energy Cartridge Pods can attach to both forearms, even while the shield is already attached!

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 Wing Gundam EW 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 Decals. Top 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.
