First off,

I'd avoid making judgements until after you detail, paint and finish the
thing.	Working with green putty on metal, a lot of the times I have
felt the same way lookign at the raw work.  Usually, after a good
base-coating of primer, it all comes together, lookign like a whole once

Unless everything is floppy and leaning at odd angles, I would really
give it a bit of time.	Add some fiddly bits, use some puty to give it
some decoartive bumps and such with proper PSB reasoning.  Paint it and
then see if you still think it looks like you thought it looked.
