Hobbyists and GunPla builders work hard to bring their ideas to life through rigorous customization, painting, and assembly. Rendy Iswanto stands out among these ardent fans with his latest creation, the HG 1/144 Gundam Aerial, a masterpiece that not only demonstrates his talent but also marks a watershed moment in his modeling career.

With the HG 1/144 Gundam Aerial kit, Rendy Iswanto, also known on Instagram as @rendy1582, took on a new task. Although High Grade (HG) kits are frequently commended for being easily accessible and uncomplicated, Rendy's method went above and beyond the norm. Driven by the purchase of a new airbrush, he decided to try his hand at airbrush painting and selected the Gundam Aerial as the subject.

The HG 1/144 Gundam Aerial, which was enhanced in detail and poseability with the Aerial Upgrade Parts, served as the foundation for Rendy's project. In order to add color and depth to his idea, he used a combination of Jumpwind, Mr. Color, and specific local brand paints in addition to specially selected decals.

The modeler's experience with the Gundam Aerial was more than just assembly and painting; it was also an examination of how to improve a model's presentation. He also used computer graphics (CG) to give a dynamic dimension to the display of Gundam stances. This creative approach allowed him to create scenarios that grabbed the imagination, making the Gundam Aerial appear as if it had emerged from the screen of its anime origin.

He also reflected on his effort, saying, "Normally, I don't build HG kits, but I recently purchased an airbrush and decided to use this HG Aerial as my first airbrush painted project." This decision was essential in his modeling career, demonstrating his desire to explore and learn new skills. His use of a range of paints, including Jumpwind, Mr. Color, and local brand options, displayed his attention to detail in getting the perfect finish.

The HG 1/144 Gundam Aerial by Rendy Iswanto is proof of the imagination and commitment that go into Gundam modeling. His move into airbrush painting, together with the clever application of computer graphics for improved presentation, raises the bar for what enthusiasts may accomplish. Rendy encourages people to stretch the bounds of their imagination and ability as he pursues and shares his love of model construction.

Rendy Iswanto serves as a reminder through his art that the true meaning of modeling is not just finishing a kit but also the accompanying personal development and path of transformation. His Gundam Aerial, a magnificent fusion of creativity and artistry, will surely encourage a new generation of modelers to investigate the endless possibilities both inside and outside of the Gundam universe.
