This was my project for the Instructables Gift Exchange!
(The author this gift was designed for belongs to a "scorpion hunting club". Sending an original model of a scorpion seemed to be the perfect author gift!)
Note: Images created in MLCAD/POV-RAY.
Step 1: Step 1: Gather Parts
To construct the scorpion, you will need the following:
12 Angular Block 30 degrees
18 Angular Block 60 Degrees
10 Building Block 15
8 Building Block 30

fischertechnik parts are available online through their website, or can be hunted down at ebay and other websites.

My kids loved this model! We enjoy building with fischertechnik as a family.
