One of the most popular pick-up trucks of all time, the Toyota Hilux, follows the Ford F-350 as the 2nd new R/C pick-up truck release. Tamiya spared no expense in developing this truck to be the most realistic ever, with a ladder frame chassis and 4WD system just like the actual truck. The 3-speed transmission provides lots of enjoyable driving options and a plethora of metal parts such as the front guard, leaf springs, and aluminum friction dampers make for a very interesting assembly kit. The large diameter tires provide impressive ground clearance and enhances the realistic resin body’s muscular look. Metal-plated parts for the roll bar, front grill, front/rear bumpers, and muffler provide extra detail highlights throughout the model as well. To top off this unique model, parts for a surfboard are also included.
Headlights and turn signals can be recreated using separately available LEDs. Maker emblems are recreated with metal-transfer markings.
