Tamiya 23801 1/14 RC XB MB Actros 3363 Green Full Op.
This is a factory finished RC model of the 1/14 scale Mercedes Benz Actros 3363 3-axle truck. It is hand built and finished by Tamiya's craftsman. It includes a Tamiya 4-channel radio and MFC-01 unit.
The Actros series debuted in 2011 and was named 2012 Truck of the Year. Powered by a 15.6-liter inline-6 turbocharged diesel putting out a max of 630hp, the actual 3363 can haul up to 250 tons!
The Tamiya rendition faithfully captures the truck's modern form with the use of ABS plastic body parts and a number of metal chassis components. One look at the detailed interior and auxiliary equipment, such as air tanks, will confirm that the body features replica-quality realism, which is further enhanced with metal transfers depicting emblems and numerous metal- plated parts. The chassis is built for durability as it uses aluminum side channels with resin cross members. Drivability is accomplished by power from the front-mounted motor and is transmitted via a propeller shaft to the rear axle; built-in differential gears guarantee smooth cornering. Gear changes can be made via a separately-sold 4-channel transmitter.
The Actros' realism can be further heightened with separately-available trailers that can be attached to its coupler and make the model over a meter in length!
