Tamiya 1/14th scale trucks and trailers are distributed in the UK by Wonderland Models
This model assembly kit recreates the dual rear axle-driven Arocs 3348 6×4 tipper, which runs on a 12.8-litre turbocharged inline-six engine capable of 480 bhp.
The highly detailed body comes with a pre-painted red cab and silver bed, each having also been given a urethane topcoat. It captures the slimline form of the truck cab, including the distinctive bucket-tooth design grille.
Depictions of headlight guards, front bumper and skid plate underneath are parts of a realistic finish.
The assembly type three-speed transmission allows gear changes via four-channel transmitter. The ladder frame chassis features aluminium side channels with resin cross-members.
A realistic one-piece resin bed is reinforced with a metal frame. 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 utilises metal leaf springs and friction dampers. The model provides easy driving thanks to the float-mounted die-cast front and reinforced resin rear axles.
