Thanks for the kind comments guys, much apriciated!



Fully restored King Hauler

Found a while back in a rc-store.

After many years as demo model (it was one of the first tamiya rigs in the Netherlands)

But got damaged with a break-in.

So i bought it to restore after some tough nagotiations

Considering the falling glass damage on the body and the many chrome bits had to be replaced & repainted.

I went for a full new abs body, as the damage was to bad for a clean fix.

But, as it is quite a old rig with a bit of history decided to keep as much original parts as possible

(air filters, fuel tanks, exhaust stacks ect)



After that, full 'original' tamiya alloy rims where fitted

For more pulling power, a truckpuller II 7,2V is installed.




As I needed a dedicated puller for the tipping trailer,

I could paint it to match the trailer.

Considering there must be some extra electronics fitted, to make the trailer actually do his tipping-thing ;)

So could just not 'pick any rig'

A Tamiya TUE101BK esc is used to control the tipper-trailer electronics

Considering the high power drain from the trailer, it has his own battery in the cab.






In my showroom, at this link, you can find more info about the trailer:

Hello,nice end dump box! Tamiya makes very scale tractors-too bad they don't put that scale realism into their trailer kits also.
