Also known as transporters that are used by F1 teams today, MAN Company’s tractor truck, the TGX 26.540 6×4 XLX was awarded “The 2008 Truck of the Year.” This award-winning truck comes reproduced as a 1/14 scale electric R/C model. The model features a ladder frame chassis with aluminum channels, suspension with metal leaf springs and friction dampers, and rear axles equipped with differentials. Providing this truck with a realistic scale finish are parts which feature two kinds of metal-plating and metal transfers to beautifully depict details such as the front grille’s emblem. Furthermore, the chassis features a 3-speed transmission which allows gear shifting while driving via a 4-channel transmitter, with the sound and lighting actions reproduced by the separately sold Multi-Function Control (MFC-01) unit.
This version of the MAN TGX is great for those without the time or confidence to apply a paint job to their kit, as cab parts molded in blue are pre-painted in TAMIYA TS-54 Light Metallic Blue and given a urethane coating for a beautiful, lasting finish.
