this is true, the other issue i had with the suspension is that with that setup, it wanted to flex out to the sides. having the moving parts for the suspension would have made it very hard to reinforce the way i wanted to.
as for the structure, i do tend to over build and over engineer things. i like them to be able to hold up to actual use as well as being moved around for storage and display.
also, since i havent taken may pics of the progress i am making, ill just leave these here

Also, look at incorporating more hollow areas to save weight. Your walls, especially up front, are hecka thick. The walls supporting the turret are good for being thick, but the other ones could probably be done with plates or hollowed out areas.
