Important: Looking for Tamiya Spare Parts?
Tamiya are still experiencing production and shipping issues with spare parts caused by Covid19. It would be wise to email first first if a part you need is urgent as we are still seeing many items go onto back order for between 8 and 12 weeks, and our stocks whilst improving are still very poor compared to normal.

Other ranges and Tamiya items showing as "IN STOCK" on the product page, such as ALL radio control kits, are unaffected.

This 8 wheeler is based on the Volvo FH cab and features a dual steering front axle.
 
Our series of ultra-realistic 1/14 scale R/C trucks is a byword for fun, and offers a wide variety of different models and truck types. Now, it is to expand with another brand new type – the tow truck, which makes its living towing heavy duty vehicles such as tractor trucks. It promises a completely different element of enjoyment to predecessors in the series. The FH16 is marketed by Volvo, a renowned actor in the global commercial vehicle market. The FH Series includes a 750hp 16.1-liter turbocharged inline-6 engine FH16 Globetrotter 750 8x4 tow truck.
 
About the Model
• This is a 1/14 scale R/C model assembly kit. Length: 750mm, width: 195mm, height: 300mm. • Features a detailed molded plastic depiction of the cab, with photo-etched front grille and interior features.
• This model’s front axles feature the first twin steering system seen in the Tamiya 1/14 Truck series.
• The rear boom and underlift mechanism features plenty of metal components for excellent durability. Employ the new separately sold Actuator Set (Item 56553) to control them via R/C transmitter.
• Ladder frame has aluminum side channels and resin cross members. Power from the front motor is delivered to the two rear axles via propeller shaft. A built-in differential gear on each axle enables smooth cornering.
• Highly-realistic suspension utilizes metal leaf springs and friction dampers. The model enjoys easy driving thanks to the float-mounted die-cast front and reinforced resin rear axles.
• Three-speed transmission allows shifting via transmitter (only one gear is usable when towing).
• Headlights and taillights can be lit up with separately sold LEDs, and the model is compatible with Item 56523 Tractor Truck Multi-Function Control Unit "Euro-Style" (MFC-03).
• Compatible TROP truck option parts: 56523, 56531, 56538, 56548, 56549, 56550, 56551, 56553.
An optional electrical pack is available to raise and lower the jib.
