Tamiya at the Nuremberg Toy Fair 2019 is showing the new Volvo FH16 Globetrotter 750 6×4 Timber. The model is a 1/14th Scale scale R/C truck assembly kit of the famous timber truck with long rear bed for carrying logs.
The Tamiya replica captures every details from the real truck with a ABS plastic body parts and a number of metal chassis components.
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.
