Sorry, don't know the designated model series, but the one that looks like the Slave-1. 

When I first saw it fly in ESB, I was hooked on the concept of thinking out of the box on spacecraft designs. :D

I think the mantis is the original model, the slave one is Jango (later Boba) fett's upgraded personal version

Credius Nargath Nailed it. Boba pimped it out pretty well to the point there weren't many original parts left.

Kaine Australis I personally just prefer the Mantis to the other ship because when you compare it to other ships in star wars, it is both extremely unique in shape and form and actually makes a lot of sense when it comes to stuff like docking, functionality and modularity (to which had also been hinted by Eckardsladder and Geesly on youtube in several "best ships" exposé's. It's less cumbersome, has a good combination of practicality and design and yes... it's the ship of two generations of bounty hunters who had been tauted as being the best of each respective generation/time period, you got to have a fitting vessel to match that.
