Your chance to bag a stunning 1/14th scale Tamiya radio-controlled Black Edition Merc Actros worth £500!

Japanese model manufacturer Tamiya represents the pinnacle of precision, dedication and attention to detail – and the company has recently released a fully working radio-controlled Mercedes-Benz Black Edition Actros 1851 tractor unit in the UK.

To celebrate, Trucking has teamed up with The Hobby Company, Tamiya’s UK distributor, to offer one lucky reader a stunning prize: a scale model Black Edition Actros kit, radio equipment, battery and charger worth £500!

Tamiya’s special Black Edition Mercedes-Benz Actros features a range-topping GigaSpace cab and is modelled in exacting 1/14th scale. The body parts have been professionally pre-painted in metallic black, and the kit features a range of realistic details – including metal leaf-spring suspension and friction dampers.
As additional extras (though not included in the competition prize), the tractor unit can be augmented with a realistic LED lighting kit to accurately recreate front and rear lights, plus a rumble kit to produce authentic engine vibrations when in operation.
