Hey guys! I haven't seen a ball WIP and I just got mine so I suppose I'll post my WIP of it ^^

Should be fun I plan to weather and damage the poo outta this guy!

For those who don't know, the ball was the federation'a grunt unit for a while (and stood no chance against Zakus) so it deserves to be beaten up!

Hope you guys enjoy!

One of my all time favorite MG's! Since you'll be damaging it extensively, i hope you highlight all that fantastic detail that is under there!

This might be the first inner frame I do extensive paint work on!

I am looking forward to seeing this!

I would like to build a MG Ball, so maybe I'll get that chance after I see yours :P

Painting these mini figs is so much fun! Also it might be hard to see but I lined the ENTIRE inner as of now because after I battle damage it I'm not sure what parts of the inner frame will be showing so I did it all (just in case :P) after the sort of inner outer frame goes on I'll dry brush on some weathering with some rust effects and do some extra detailing!

Dude, I love the affect that the panel lining has made. It looks really cool. You should paint up all those pretty details for when the armor gets blown off.

Here's the inner frame weathered! Just a simple silver dry brush with some Tamiya rust effects and metallic red thrusters! Idk why but I always color thrusters and vents metallic red.

Decals added! Love the fact that there are red dry transfers! Usually you only see em in gray or white

Don't worry I'll make it look like you kicked it around as if you were Germany and the Ball was Brazil

Looking great man. It looks so good you should almost do two. One damaged and one not.

I got so excited about painting I forgot to post the battle damage before the paint lol anyways I only did energy blasts as this is mainly a space unit and I don't think would ever really see gunfire and man... That's one beat up soccer ball ;)

I'm currently just dry brushing on some more weathering and touch up the gun and arms

Added rust and stains! Now for matte. The idea for this kit btw was a ball that was beaten out of commission and just sort of left around waiting to be scraped... And the pilot waited around in it too... I guess... Idk I just really wanted to paint the pilot

I think it's funny how the main chassis gets beat up, but not the arms and the gun. That means the darn thing can still be dangerous, haha.

Oh he is public enemy number 1... Lol honestly I didn't have any really good ideas of how to damage either without it looking forced and plus I liked them both intact :P.

He's still got fight left in him!

Mini figs painted! And glued to the base. I gotta say this was such a fun kit. Easy to build, very detailed (especially the inner frame,) and fun to modify!

I want to track down the clear body version and really detail that inner dram with gold and silver!

Overall probably my favorite paint job and weathering job!
