This is a special edition of the 1/14 R/C MAN TGX 18.540 4×2 XLX assembly kit. It comes with body components, which are beautifully pre-painted in Tamiya TS-10 French Blue (clear topcoat applied), with a durable coating applied to protect the paintwork from damage.
The Tamiya rendition of the MAN TGX 18.540 4×2 XLX faithfully captures the truck’s modern form with the use of ABS plastic body parts and a number of metal chassis components. One look at the detailed interior and auxiliary equipment, such as air tanks, will confirm that the body features replica-quality realism, which is further enhanced with metal transfers depicting emblems and numerous metal-plated parts. The chassis is built for durability as it uses aluminum side channels with resin cross members. Drivability is accomplished by power from the front-mounted motor and is transmitted via a propeller shaft to the rear axle; built-in differential gears guarantee smooth cornering. Gear changes can be made via a separately sold 4-channel transmitter.
The model features a highly detailed body and a 2-axle chassis with durable ladder frame. When controlled with a separately available R/C system, the 3-speed transmission enables authentic gear changes while driving.
The MAN Can!
MAN is a German business concern renowned for their production of large transport vehicles such as trucks and buses. Their line-up includes the TGX series of trucks, which won them the International Truck of the Year 2008 award and includes the model recreated by this R/C assembly kit – the TGX 18. 540 4×2 XLX. The kit’s polycarbonate cab is joined by separate parts for the fuel tank, battery case, spare tires and more, for unparalleled realism. Metal-plated parts are employed to depict exhaust cover and mirror surfaces. The highly realistic ladder frame chassis uses numerous metal parts for solid and durable assembly, employing a 3-speed transmission that allows gear changes via a separately sold transmitter. Kit-included coupler enables linkage with any of Tamiya’s currently available 1/14 scale trailers, and the model is compatible with a wide range of Tractor Truck Option Parts as well.
Beautiful in Blue
The kit includes a range of body parts pre-painted in stylish French blue: the cab, roof, spoiler, side skirts, front bumper and more. A clear top coat has been applied to the parts to ensure an excellent-quality finish. The kit requires assembly and painting of some parts in semi gloss black for you to complete your very own eye-catching truck.
Realistic Lights, Sounds, and Vibration
Install a Multi-Function Control Unit (included for Japanese market only) to add light, sound, and vibration operation to your R/C truck experience. Engine sounds are digitally recorded from an actual unit, and change to reflect model speed. Together with air discharge, horn, gear shifting, and many other realistic sounds, it gives you the feeling that you are driving the real thing! Headlights, brake lights, fog lamp, hazard lights and turn signal operations are also at your fingertips.
