Default MadDOG (Battlemech)

Hi all
I finally got maya back and working and i am ready to start somthing new. I am tasking a break from Organics and i am trying to make a mech. I really like the designs from the old Mech-commander / Mech-Warrior games and after alot of searching i managed to find some blueprints.
I am using the MadDog as a basis but i am going to add my own stuff to it in the end.

What do you all think so far. I have made a start on the arm and rocket, gun thing.

C&C Welcome

yeah - nice start. i just might increased the vertical distance between the holes for the rockets, as they are looking a little close at the moment, though I can see in the ref that they are pretty close.

Thanks,
I dont know what i will do about the missiles. I cant really move them around to much because the space on that part is limited.
I was thining about adding a hatch that opens when they fire too.
Here is an update on the arm and gun.

Not big into mech thingies (not too sure of the term!)

But this is looking good, if was me I would be tempted to add lots of pipes etc, even though if its getting blasted by another robot which would be a weak point, I think it would add to the look of it

Thanks,
I might add some pipes or wires around the arm area. I could make them look really heavy duty to seem more in place with it.
