Mercedes-Benz Actros - 3363 GigaSpace
Model Number: 56348
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 aluminium 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!
