42046 - Scorpion




Alt #9 for 42046 - Scorpion

- Stinging action (spring loaded tail)
- Moving legs (all eight, independently)
- Moving pincers (both sideways and open-close)
- Tilting head section. You can make it look at you. It is seriously unsettling.

Instructions notes:
1) I have an .io file which I listed as CAD. The pull-back engine there is not the same as the one in 42046, but it fits for the purpose of this MOC.
2) The PDF instrctions have no engine, because LDD doesn't have it, but the video shows right at the start where the engine fits (if you don't want to watch the whole thing, but why wouldn't you?! It has great music! The Scorpion by Megadeth)

Building Note:
To improve stinging action, load the engine a bit before mounting the tail. This is demonstrated around halfway through the video, at the end of the construction phase. This technique also serves when constructing the Catapult Alternate.

Enjoy, construct, take a picture, leave a comment :)
