24-Scale: E24-03 Dontress

I got this in the not-expensive lot with the Reddra. The Wave reissue is identical, except that this one has the sweet clear blue bits (the Wave’s are orange) and blue caps (grey on the Wave).

Dontress repaint

Another ebay catch. I like the color scheme on this. I think the pilot lady suffered a bit when shipped from Singapore, but otherwise this is a sweet find.

EZ-048 Demantis

Demantis is incredibly fragile, and I finally got tired of pieces falling off every time I looked at it, so I glued the “fins” and clear red bits on. I like the little binocular mans. He sees what you did there.

PT-05 Dontress (Wave)

This one’s mostly MIB—my OJR version is borrowing a couple pieces right now. Priorities, you know. They’re identical, except for the clear parts (orange here) and caps (grey here).

RMZ-09 Spiker

The first mantis type. It has an interesting walking mechanism: the legs are mainly decoration, and the real work is done by some stubs directly under the body. In bad news, the front section droops with age, doh!

I like the silver in this version. In bad news, the front section droops with age, doh!
