    Re: work in progress so far

    Hey man! I like the progress. One thing I would look to is the dents for the knee pads. I'm sure you'll get to it but it's looking good!

    Good job so far! The toe spikes should be fixed by moving the spike closer to the screw and maybe shorten it a bit, like this:

    Dude! Those gauntlets look sick! Out of curiosity, why leave the area where you have to put the calculator key pad hollow?
