Become a Trucker
Scania is a world-famous manufacturer of large trucks and buses, and this is a 1/14 scale R/C model of the R470 Highline, a model in their 2005 International Truck of the Year-winning R-Series range.
The model features a ladder frame chassis with resin cross members and aluminum side channels, plus suspension with metal leaf springs and friction dampers. The 3-speed assembly transmission allows gear changing via transmitter controls. The characteristic styling of the truck's body is reproduced down to the smallest detail. The cabin tilts forward just like the actual truck and the included grille mesh further enhances the realistic look of the model.
Kit-included coupler enables linkage with any of Tamiya's currently available 1/14 scale trailers, and the R470 is compatible with a wide range of Tractor Truck Option Parts as well.
