This is the 1/14 scale Tamiya Mercedes-Benz Actros 1851. The 2012 'Truck of the Year' award-winning Actros series is the flagship of the world's leading truck manufacturer, Daimler of Germany. This is Tamiya's highly accurate R/C assembly kit of the rear-wheel drive single axle Actros 1851 GigaSpace, which runs on a 12.8-liter 6-cylinder turbo-charged engine capable of 510hp.
One look at the splendidly-detailed interior and auxiliary equipment such as air tanks will confirm that the body features replica-quality realism, which is added to by metal transfers depicting emblems and numerous metal-plated parts. The chassis is built not only for durability - it uses aluminum side channels with resin cross member - but also for drivability - power from the front-mounted motor is transmitted via propeller shaft to the rear axle and built-in differential gears guarantee smooth cornering. Gear changes can be made via a separately-sold transmitter.
Heighten the realism of your modelet further with separately-available trailers that can be tethered to the Actros by its coupler and make the modelver a meter in length! The Tamiya 1/14 scale R/C kit faithfully captures all the detail of the full size rig using ABS plastic for the body parts and a 3-speed, shift on the fly working transmission.
