I would not say "cute!", because I have been educated to feel this tail is very dangerous. Anyway this is the most gorgeous less ugly scorpion I have ever seen!

Turn the tip of the tail into a sensor pod/ball for looking over hills etc
Like the Martian sensor/weapons pod in George Pal's version of War of the Worlds?

a 100% organic proposal this time,
no mechanical device (e.g., aircraft) was harmed during the making of this build

I still have brains in my stash :






Brain Bug approves.

And we, till now unmatched in ill,
Must leave successors more corrupted still."

Unique and not unattractive.  What's the source of the cockpit and forward fuselage?

*grin* Put an ALQ-99 pod on the inner wing pylons and it would clearly be able to apply to the Benevolent and Protective Order of Old Crows (EWO's).
