 That circular area is just begging to have one of those Ironman Arc Reactors put into it. I'd probably add a bit to the nozzles to have them be more pronounced. More greebies are always good as well.
Everything else I might recommend would be more of personal preference; I like more angular lines on my stuff. So I'd try to give it more of a boxy look, but like I said personal preference.
Looks good though, does it already have hard points on it that you can attach it to your backplate, or are you going to permanently attach it to your back plate when your done?

Have a good one,
Hagen

Very nice. I like how it has a mini Basilisk feel to it with the added vents. Heck give it a bronze paint job so it matches something like this

Have a good one,
Hagen

Yea just a fast metal coat over the whole thing; not very sure what color to paint it yet. I will be sanding down the markings on the buttons, I just didnt have a sander yesterday. What other grebs can I put that wont make it look too busy?

Thanks all

I think to be honest it's more in need of a paint job to match your armour more than anything.

Personally, I'd take the buttons out and put something technical looking behind the holes :)

I love the lights man, great job. What would make it really cool is if you put some Mando'a writing across it. Maybe wrapping around that circular vent in the middle of it?
