The Catapult GAF Member Feature: thegunny's Ballstrosity

What's green, have balls and shoots out loads of stuff?

The Hulk's what???

Bzzzz, wrong answer!

It is thegunny's...... hmmmm...

I present to you the Ballstrosity.

His project started out as a Jesta on a Jabber. An unforeseen fall of the Jabber from a slight height became the stepping stone for the birth of this Ballstrosity. Two balls, armed to the teeth, makes this quite a formidable support/flight unit.

The usual gunny camo paintjob don the whole build. Needless to say, a clean paintjob. The flat coat finish gives the paintjob a shine that made this more appealing.

Of course, the hero of the show, the Jesta was painted beautifully again with the camo and upgraded with vents, spikes and armaments. Weathered and decalled - thegunny style. A perfect finish to a well built kit.

Have a look at the original thread in the Gundam Australia Forum for more photos (it's worth it)!!

Excited much? Personally, I am looking forward to the Stein (granted I cancelled my preorder and reordered a couple of times). This would be my first MG Sinanju. Simple design, straight lines and white. Whoosh!! 

Kinda on the fence with the Jesta Cannon. My gunpla-sense tells me that Bandai might plough us with the MG treatment of the Jesta Cannon (Online exclusive or not), which should look insanely menacing in that size. I would have to wait for March to see if the MG Jesta is significantly better than the HG.
