If I may make a suggestion. While most of it looks in scale, the twin gatling guns look smaller than they should be, namely the barrels. What did you use as a reference?

I didn't have the model kit on hand, so I used various model kit review photos as a reference. To what photo are you referring to? The guns are about 4 feet tall with 3 feet barrels, they were longer than I expected (and heavier). I tried to make them as big as possible cause heavyarms' guns are about 75% of the height of his body. It's such an awkward height lol. If I made it any bigger I wouldn't be able to hold it well because it would conflict with the shoulder's frame. How much bigger should I make them?

I was mostly talking about the overall diameter of the barrels. You have such a large body for the back, but when you get to the barrels, they seem awfully skinny. And what did you use to build them?

I used PVC and built a wooden frame into the body of the guns to support it. Overall it was way heavier than I had expected.

shrink the torso, head, and shoulders . It will help a lot! For some reason, people make these parts too big on their first gundam build. (like featherweight). In my case, I may have made mine too small!
