Wall -2D2

Well it's been pretty much forever since I modeled any complex hard surface stuff. When the LucasFilm/Disney news broke, I saw a sketch of Wall E with R2D2 details. Thought this would be an excellent challenge and something fun to do. I've been wanting to develop my hard surface skills for awhile, so I am eager for feedback. Am poly modeling in 3ds Max 2013.

Here is the front body plate with all of R2's familiar detailing.

Update to the two main horizontal blue pieces at the top. I didn't get the indentations quite right. Trying to model from memory instead of taking a fresh look at references. Oops.
