Trucking has teamed up with Japanese model-maker Tamiya to give away an all-new Mercedes-Benz radio-controlled Arocs tipper truck to a lucky reader!

In conjunction with The Hobby Company, Tamiya’s UK distributor, we’ve offering a stunning prize bundle of an Arocs tipper, digital 2.4 radio, battery and charger – worth £700!

This highly accurate 1/14 scale radio control model is of Merc’s Arocs 3348 6×4 tipper chassis and features a realistic tipper section behind the cab, which can be operated by the radio transmitter using the separately-sold Actuator Set.

Its ladder frame chassis has aluminium side channels with resin crossmembers, and is equipped with a realistic suspension utilising metal leaf springs and friction dampers. A front-mounted motor powers the two rear wheel axles, which are fitted with built-in differentials for smooth cornering.
