This kit is a highly detailed scale replica of the Scania R620 6×4 Highline truck.
It is part of the R-series by Scania – a Swedish truck manufacturer. The R-series is optimised for long haulage with its comfortable yet aerodynamic ‘Highline’ cab. In fact, the R-series won the prestigious “International Truck of the Year” award in both 2005 and 2010!
The R620 variant is the flagship of the R-series, with a 620 horsepower V-8 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.
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 for smooth cornering. The chassis also features a 3-speed transmission which allows gear shifting whilst driving (via a separately sold transmitter).
Just like the actual vehicle, the cabin tilts forward separately from the fenders. Mesh on the front grille and metal transfer emblems give intricate detail. Side panels, fuel tanks, rear fenders all provide the finishing touches. In fact, the fenders which cover the rear wheels are unique to European trucks and feature a 3-piece construction, just like the actual parts.
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.
This is a remote control kit that requires assembly. The kit also requires painting, either by using the suggested paint schemes or however else you would like! For this kit, Hard Plastic Spray Paint (TS) is appropriate.
All the radio control kits come supplied with a motor. In addition, you will need to purchase:
