1/14 R/C Tractor Truck Series No.74


Length: 462 mm. Image shows painted and assembled kit.

Volvo Trucks is a commercial vehicle manufacturer that enjoys a top-class reputation around the world and the FH series is one of their flagship brands, which underwent a full model change in 2012. This R/C model assembly kit recreates the FH16 Globetrotter XL 750 4x2 from that range, a truck with 16.1-liter inline-6 turbo engine capable of 750hp. The model has a highly realistic body with parts to recreate popular customizations, plus a realistic interior and even a driver figure. Its chassis employs numerous metal parts and has a three-speed transmission that allows gear changes.

Realistic Lights, Sounds, and Vibration
Tamiya Multi-Function Control Units (included for Japanese market only, available separately overseas) offer light, sound, and vibration operation to accompany your R/C truck experience. Engine sounds have been digitally recorded from an actual truck, and together with air horn, gear shifting, and many other realistic sounds, give you the feeling that you are driving the real thing! Headlights, brake lights, fog lamp, hazard lights and turn signal operation are also at your fingertips.

Semi-Trailers Separately Available
Various types including semi-trailer, tank-trailer, and pole-trailer, are currently available. Attach any one of them via the coupler on the model to create an exciting combination over a meter in length.
