Well I don't want to bulk them up much more then they already are as I'm kind of worried the hinges are over taxed as it is, but I can see your point.

The whole wall just fell down. Three tons of duracrete reduced to rubble by the business end of an MTT... I'm not ashamed to admit that we surrendered."
The MTT is a blitzerkreig device, built to punch a hole in anything aimed at it, with the added capabilities of disgorging several squads worth of disposable cannon fodder at will. To be fair, the techs running the Naboo confrontation weren't going about that battle in a tactical way- it was solely a show of force, intended to send the primitives running once they saw the "power of this fully operational battle station-" *cough* er, army. Good job with the rest of it though, looks good.
Well as I said in the opening post, the design makes more sense for living troops to use that massive internal bay as a staging area, storming out at the ready with blasters blazing.
But putting a giant droid rack that takes five minutes to deploy just negates most of the benefits of using such a massively armored vehicle.
Hell, I don't even think they can use the forward laser turrets while the rack is out, since they might hit the damned thing.
