    Here's the last custom for now unless I decide to reopen old unfinished customs. This one is Beast Wars Scorponok out of Paralon. I had seen one or two customs already and only decided to do my own when I had an idea for the shoulders that I hadn't seen.

    Paralon's shoulders are made out of his pinchers. Without the pinchers the shoulders look bland. The solution ended up being junker Gundam parts from like a decade ago. The shoulder pads are from a very crappy Strike Gundam kit. I had the carve parts of the pads to make them fit. Also, at one point I was going to do McDonald's Transmetal colors, but it wasn't working.

    I'm using a white background for some photos as the gray used blends with the chain bases I normally use.

    That looks great. Almost fits in with Animated Waspinator

    Nice work, if only the mold didn't have such skinny legs
