“This beautifully detailed kit of Crest CR-C98E2 Nine Ball Version, from the PS2 "Armored Core: Nine Breaker" game, is molded in color with some parts prepainted on the runners. Polycaps are provided for joints, enabling a wide range of action poses. Painting is not required for this model, but would add a more realistic appearance to the final product.” – HobbyLink Japan

This kit is another in the series of beautifully-molded kits by Kotobukiya. The parts are molded in color, so the builder can just put the kit together without painting if so desired. The parts are molded in black, red, medium gray, dark gray, and clear blue.

As with other Kotobukiya kits, the instruction sheet contains multiple sub-steps in each stage of assembly. The 14-page instruction manual includes a parts layout map on Page 4. The last two pages of the manual features color photos of the completed model, and paint call-outs. Unfortunately, unless you speak Japanese you will be out of luck on the paint colors as they are probably for Gunze colors. You could probably match the colors to items in your paint stocks with careful comparison, though.

A variation on this kit, the Nineball=Seraph (kit no. KBYVI-22), is also available, retailing for about $81.00. This kit features additional weapons, and the installation of the shoulder-mounted weapons makes the completed kit tower over others in the product line.

The completed Nineball kit is about 6 inches tall.
