General info Edit
The Manta Ray Mk.II featuring the body design based on the original Manta Ray.
A pair of front fenders were protruded from the side cowls, covering the exposing batteries of the chassis. Instead of the R/C buggy-style rear spoiler, in its place is a pair of separated grill-type spoilers. Other design aspects of the original were changed to be more sharper.
It was mainly in silver, with red highlights and blue trims on it.
It was equipped with the red large-diameter, 3-spoke MS-type I wheels paired with the black Avante-type slick tires. It has N-02 and T-01 units for its MS Chassis, and comes with the standard, light gray 16 mm lightweight plastic rollers.
However, it should be noted that the pre-assembled Finished Model came equipped with the gray A parts and N-01 nose unit instead of the black A parts and the N-02 nose unit.
