TIMBERRRRR!!
Volvo is a renowned actor in the global commercial vehicle market, with one of their flagship brands being the FH Series that underwent a full model change in 2012. This R/C model assembly kit recreates the 750hp 16.1-liter turbocharged inline-6 engine FH16 Globetrotter 750 6x4 timber truck from that range. The model has a realistic body, and a chassis featuring numerous metal parts. Gear changes are also possible via transmitter controls.
★Ladder frame features aluminum side channels with resin cross members. ★Depictions of stakes and cab rear headboard use a durable combination of resin and metal. ★Power from the front-mounted motor is delivered to rear axles via propeller shaft. A built-in differential gear on each axle enables smooth cornering. ★Highly-realistic suspension utilizes metal leaf springs and friction dampers. The model enjoys easy driving thanks to the float-mounted die-cast front and reinforced resin rear axles. ★The highly accurate body captures the FH16 Globetrotter form, with stainless steel photo-etched front grille, and cab interior details. ★TR Mighty Tuned motor (35T) provides plenty of power, even when driving with loads.

★There is plenty of detail, highlighted here by side guards, tank shield and sanding gear depictions.

Image
★Metal-plated resin headboard and resin stake components secure durability and superb realism.

Image
★We haven't forgotten the details - the rear steps are recreated by resin parts with a plated finish.

Image
★Why not use the separately sold MFC-03 unit to light up components such as the square taillights?
