|The MAN Can!|
MAN is a German business concern renowned for their production of large transport vehicles such as trucks and buses. Their line-up includes the TGX series of trucks, which won them the International Truck of the Year 2008 award and includes the model recreated by this R/C assembly kit - the TGX 18. 540 4x2 XLX. The kit's polycarbonate cab is joined by separate parts for the fuel tank, battery case, spare tires and more, for unparalleled realism. Metal-plated parts are employed to depict exhaust cover and mirror surfaces. The highly realistic ladder frame chassis uses numerous metal parts for solid and durable assembly, employing a 3-speed transmission that allows gear changes via a separately sold transmitter. Kit-included coupler enables linkage with any of Tamiya's currently available 1/14 scale trailers, and the model is compatible with a wide range of Tractor Truck Option Parts as well.
|Beautiful in Blue|
The kit includes a range of body parts pre-painted in stylish French blue: the cab, roof, spoiler, side skirts, front bumper and more. A clear top coat has been applied to the parts to ensure an excellent-quality finish. The kit requires assembly and painting of some parts in semi gloss black for you to complete your very own eye-catching truck.
★Superb realism is enhanced by the use of separate parts to depict coupler, fuel tank, battery case, spare tire, chocks and more!
★Switch between gears on the 3-speed transmission using a separately sold transmitter, for a totally engrossing R/C experience.
★The model is compatible with Multi-Function Control Units (sold separately; included in Japan market product only), for coordinated lights.
|Realistic Lights, Sounds, and Vibration|
Install a Multi-Function Control Unit (included for Japanese market only) to add light, sound, and vibration operation to your R/C truck experience. Engine sounds are digitally recorded from an actual unit, and change to reflect model speed. Together with air discharge, horn, gear shifting, and many other realistic sounds, it gives you the feeling that you are driving the real thing! Headlights, brake lights, fog lamp, hazard lights and turn signal operations are also at your fingertips.
