Default 2nd XV-2 suit complete

Well, the second of my XV-2 suits have been painted. The construction of it can be seen in the tutorial linked in my sig (note that the WIP pics are missing right now because they pushed me over my bandwidth allowance for the month, they'll be back on the 16th when my allowance comes back. If I get pushed over again this month, I may move all the pics to photobucket, though). Made some changes (mainly the addition of the dual-shot Rail Rifle to replace the missile pod, and the Failsafe Detonator on the back) and here it is. C&C welcome!!!

He's got a Burst Cannon, Dual-shot Rail Rifle (MP) and Targetting Array.

I was trying to get the idea of the red light being on on the Failsafe Detonator on his back, I think it's alright, not quite what I wanted tho. Any ideas on what I could've done different?

He looks fantastic!

However there's very little to differentiate him from a regular XV-25 Stealth suit.

I've just finished making a squad of XV-2s, I'll post pics up in about a week to let you guys see them.
