PostSubject: Amazing Ant (Becker & Meyer)   Sat Feb 24, 2018 1:30 am

Time for another one of those fun, novelty walk-arounds. This time, it's the Amazing Ant by Becker & Meyer, released in 2003. This is a simpler version of some of the anatomy model kits by other companies, such as 4D Master, etc. Still, it has an irresistible charm to it! :). I should point out early, this was free from stargatedalek! I only had to pay for shipping! And a quick internet search doesn't show it being relatively available anywhere so I am glad to have gotten it.

The ant comes in 11 pieces:top, bottom, 2 antennae, internal organs (combined in one), and 6 legs. The body is clear, revealing the internal organs. This particular figure is missing one antennae (stars made that clear to me, so I knew it was incomplete beforehand). I will probably seal the parts with glue or something.

The figure measures 10 cm not including appendages, and the way the legs sprawl it takes up roughly 10 x 10 cm of ground space. Because it is not attributable to a given species, I cannot give a scale.

It's pretty simple and easy to assemble, so not much else to say. On to the pics:

A very interesting model Shocked

Funny, I never really thought how the internal organs of an ant look geek

We have a very similar taste in our collection. You only insects, spiders and co and for me species. All the small brands or special figurines :)

yes I agree, I love obscure brands as much as obscure species. If I collected other species I am sure our collections would be very similar ;-)
