First off, the easiest way to fix the ball joint problem is to put some super
glue on the ball, then place the ball in its socket. When the glue hardens,
move the ball around in its socket it brake it free from the glue. Super glue
will not stick to poly-caps, so this is a good way to tighten poly-cap
joints. Since the joint you're asking about should be a plastic ball in a
poly-cap socket, this method should work out for you. As to the shield, I
have mine resting on the left foot with the left hand holding it up against
the left shoulder. It looks very impressive standing with my MG RX-78-3 on
it's right, and my MG RX-178 MkII Titan type on its left. It looks even more
impressive when I place my R-44 Guntank (also 1/100 scale) right in front of
the GP02a.
