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 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!
