This is the electric powered, radio controlled, 1/24 scale limited edition heavy dump truck kit from Tamiya. This limited edition kit takes the standard Heavy Dump Truck and gives it a meaner new look! The livery design concept is based on the heavy metal style seen in American rock band culture. The body parts are molded in black with metal-plated chassis parts and new sticker designs.
This special version depicts a dump truck modeled upon those which do the heavy work in locations like quarries and large-scale construction sites. The body is mounted on the popular gear-driven GF-01 chassis.
The GF-01 chassis plays off of the successful and fun line-up of RC kits such as the Wild Willy 2, Volkswagen Type 2, and the Farm King Wheelie. Whereas those kits featured a 2WD and easy to wheelie platform, the GF-01 is a 4WD incarnation with the motor placed directly in the center in order to drive the gears in front and rear gearboxes.
