Awesome if only it was remote controlled. I can easily see this in an action movie as like some mini robot assassin sent to kill somebody and the main character saves them.

Amazing! I love sculptures and other things made of scrap metal. It's just so cool. Nice job, I really like how you did the tail. Imagine if real scorpions were made out of metal!
Very impressive.

Thanks...I love making stuff out of scrap metal. It's fun to see how far you can take it.

At least if scorpions were made of metal, you could hear them before they stab your foot as you put on your shoe.
