This kit is a highly detailed scale replica of the MAN TGX 26.540 6×4 XLX.
It is part of the TGX range by MAN – a range known for its outstanding fuel efficiency yet high power to carry big loads. In fact, the TGX series won the prestigious “International Truck of the Year” award in 2008!
The 26.540 variant has a Gross Vehicle Mass of 26 tons and a 540 horsepower engine. The 6×4 refers to the fact that it has 6 wheels (across 3 axles), 4 of which are powered. This type of drivetrain is the most common in truck tractor units. Its XLX is the second largest cab that MAN offers – large enough for comfortable long-haul transport.
Tamiya models are renowned for their realism, and this kit is no exception.
The ladder frame chassis is extremely durable, with aluminium channels. The suspension employs metal leaf springs and friction dampers – just like real trucks. Both its rear axles are equipped with differentials. The chassis also features a 3-speed transmission which allows gear shifting whilst driving (via a separately sold transmitter).
Just like the actual vehicle, this model comes with large-sized curved side mirrors that feature two mirror surfaces. The left side exhaust cover has a matt finished metal-plated part which features the MAN EURO 5 engrave. Metal transfers of the TGX 26. 540 logos on both doors give greater scale presence. Included are metal transfers to depict the MAN logo and Lion emblem on the front grille. Both left and right step plates are depicted with matt finished metal-plated parts with realistic non-slip safe-guard sections.
Take your truck to the next level with semi-truck add-ons. Attach any one of them via the coupler on the model to create a combination over a meter in length.
