All right. I think this is where it needs to be.

As I mentioned in my previous reference for Gundam Dawn, I had its appearance pretty much locked down. With this, I've merely refined the previous design, and made a few cosmetic changes; most notably the exposed GN Condensers in the joints and head, a-la Exia/Quanta. I've also tweaked the proportions a bit, slightly enlarging the head and shoulders to balance out with the long legs.

Also, if you looked at the stats listed in the image and thought "That's way too many weapons," understand that the Dawn doesn't have all that stuff equipped simultaneously. Its slew of weapons are mixed and matched depending on the mission.

Gundam Dawn's power source, a GN Beta particle drive, can be seen here: [link]

This is the design of the title mecha in my Gundam 00 side-story: Gundam Dawn.

It's like Gundams Unicorn and Exia had a mecha baby in my head!

Did you ever think about a successor unit that makes up for its small amount of long-range weapons? Maybe the additions of GN Fangs could be possible.

If you're just using it as a reference, then credit is appreciated, but not required.

it seems that the inner frame is showing in some places...perhaps relating to the concept of Exia's purposeful high speed close-combat design?

Exactly right. With close combat designs, you can take one of two tactics: You can either give it extremely heavy armor, allowing it to absorb damage, or you can give it ultra-light armor allowing it to avoid damage altogether. Being similar in principle to the Exia, Dawn goes with the agile, lightweight approach.
