Tamiya’s 1/14 scale R/C semi-truck assembly kit model of a timber truck with long rear bed features a distinctive frame and stakes for carrying logs. It captures in high detail the Volvo FH16 Globetrotter, a 750hp 16.1-liter turbocharged engine powered truck. This version was the Swedish company Volvo’s flagship FH Series that underwent a full model change in 2012.
The ABS plastic body captures the FH16 Globetrotter form, with stainless steel photo-etched front grille, and cab interior details. Depictions of stakes and cab rear headboard use a durable combination of resin and metal.
Assembly type 3-speed transmission allows gear changes via separately sold 4-channel transmitter. Power from the front-mounted motor is delivered to rear axles via propeller shaft. A built-in differential gear on each axle enables smooth cornering.
Ladder frame features aluminum side channels with plastic cross members. A highly-realistic suspension utilizes metal leaf springs and friction dampers. The model drives easily thanks to the float-mounted die-cast front and reinforced resin rear axles.
TR Mighty Tuned motor (35T) provides plenty of power, even when driving with loads.
