A Customized 3-Axle Beauty!
The 2012 Truck of the Year award-winning Actros series is the flagship of the world’s leading truck manufacturer, Daimler AG (Germany). This R/C model assembly kit recreates the dual rear axle-driven Actros 3363 6×4 GigaSpace model, which runs on a 15.6-liter turbocharged inline-6 engine capable of 630hp. The model’s highly detailed body breathtakingly captures the powerful form of the truck, including depictions of auxiliary lights on cab roof and bumper. Its ladder frame chassis features aluminum side channels with resin cross members, while the suspension employs leaf springs and friction dampers. An assembly type 3-speed transmission allows gear changes via separately available 4-channel transmitter
This is a highly accurate 1/14 scale radio control model that recreates the Mercedes Benz Actros 3363 3-axle truck. 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!
