Tamiya is going to release in teh coming weeks an impressive 1/14 scale electric RC replica of the Man TGX 26.540 6X4 XLX. Also known as transporters that are used by F1 teams today, this MAN Company’s tractor truck was awarded “The 2008 Truck of the Year.” This version of the MAN TGX is great for those without the time or confidence to apply a paint job to their kit, as cab parts molded in blue are pre-painted in Tamiya TS-54 Light Metallic Blue and given a urethane coating for finish.
This replica features a ladder frame chassis with aluminum channels, suspension with metal leaf springs and friction dampers, and rear axles equipped with differentials. Providing this truck with a realistic scale finish are parts which feature two kinds of metal-plating and metal transfers to beautifully depict details such as the front grille’s emblem.
The Tamiya Man TGX 26.540 6X4 XLX‘s chassis features a 3-speed transmission which allows gear shifting while driving via a 4-channel transmitter, with the sound and lighting actions reproduced by the separately sold Multi-Function Control (MFC-01) unit.
