mech popper w.i.p

You can't buy gum in Singapore but you can chew it and the guy with the gum in the office is most popular. It so happens my friend's gum comes in a ball type packaging. I procured one for my kitbashing projects and here are the work in progress photos.The bits and pieces are stuck in with super glue. The current stage of painting is less than satisfactory. I envisioned a brushed metal finish but the sprayed on silver paint came out too grainy. I'm letting it dry for now and will attempt to salvage it with drybrushed layer of buffable metallic paint. Stay tuned!
P.S. I'm not entirely sure what this thing is. I initially imagined this to be some kind of futuristic grenade, but now I'm wondering if it could possibly represent some sort of mine as a companion piece for my trex-mech project.
