Quoting claw paradox this is really eye-catching! no wonder it's your most popular creation!
Thanks, Claw. I'm happy with how it turned out. I wish I had more hinge pieces for the legs so I didn't have to make so many compromises, but oh well.

Quoting Anthony C. This looks like something from Tucson :) Do you still make birds with Tinker toys as well?
Hi Anthony! This was modeled after Tarantulas I've seen in Tucson. Unfortunately, I don't have any Tinker Toys anymore, but they used to be some of my favorite things to build with. I had a set of giant ones that I made cars and spaceships out of that I could get in. Thanks for checking out my MOCs! I hope to see some of yours soon, let me know when you post some pictures.

Quoting +++Blueštar+++, the Faith Hey Mr. Mayhew, Me and a friend of mine are competing in a Moc-off. Would you like to be a judge? Please reply and I'll invite you if you say yes.
Sure, I'd love to. No one's asked me to before, is there anything I need to know first? Thanks for thinking of me.

Quoting Will A. Wow!!! This is art. This is so SO so cool!!!
Thanks Will! I love your Coast Guard Patrol boat. My military friends all say the Navy is a great service to join because the technical training really can help you later in life. Follow your dreams!

Quoting Hayden . Really cool! I love the fangs and eyes!
Thanks, Hayden! I really appreciate it. I was hoping to be able to find a way to make the eyes just a little smaller, but I still like the way they turned out too.

Quoting StoveTop Creator You beat me to it! I've been wanting to use the hinge pieces I've been collecting for spider legs too! Anywho, I love this! You must have made a lot of BrickLink orders to acquire all those hinges! How did you ever find soooo many grey ones?! A long time ago when I was living in the DC Beltway area, the National Science Museum had an exhibit on tarantulas that I visited.... very cool and CUTE they are! :)
Thanks StoveTop! I actually have never ordered anything from BrickLink (yet). I think all those hinges must have come from various Star Wars sets over the years. I didn't have enough to do what I wanted. I really needed about 20 more so I could add one more segment to each leg and convert the back legs and fangs to the same type but oh well...

Quoting Brickscape _ I love it! It really strikes me more as a wolf spider or a jumping spider though, probably the large eyes. Very well done!
Your right, Brickscape, it does look more like a wolf spider. I modeled after tarantula pictures I found online and it's life size, but now that I labeled it 'Tarantula' I guess I'll have to live with it :)

Quoting Eric W. It looks very tarantula-y to me! This is one of, if not, the best spider design I've seen! Nice work!
Thanks Eric! I think Dave Benson's Spider and Scorpion are a bit better, but I am proud of it.

Quoting Bluestar ~ Looks realistic! The part usage on the legs was creative. The abdomen and body is definantly a great part usage. But the only flaw would be the fangs... it dosen't look that sharp. Try using the spike peices.. But other than that, nice work!
Thanks Bluestar! I agree about the fangs. I also just realized I completely forgot about the spinnerets.

Quoting Dave Benson Great arachnid! Looks a lot like my SLOOC spider from Fighters Wall and equally creepy ;) Scorpion next?
Thanks Dave! I think your spider is much cooler. My son actually requested this to go along with Godzilla and Mothra. I may do a scorpion, but I was thinking about a wasp.

Quoting William Pugh Ah, yes. That happened with the crash about a month ago. I was hoping they'd be replaced, but at this rate, I'll probably just have to reupload what I can. And thank you!
Oh, man, I'm sorry to hear that. I do hope you reupload them. I'd love to see them.

Quoting William Pugh Seeing as I own 7 tarantulas myself, I can say with confidence that you pulled off a very interesting and accurate arachnid. Kinda reminds me of the Skeleton Leg tarantula. Anyway, fantastic job!
Thank you very much, William. I love what I can see on your page, but quite a few pictures were completely missing. Perhaps it's a technical issue on my end or MOCpages (they seem to have a lot of downtime). Your Jurassic Park T-Rexes are very cool.
