Tamiya 1/14 Volvo FH16 Globetrotter 750 8x4 Tow Truck (Unassembled Kit)

Tamiya’s series of ultra-realistic 1/14 scale R/C trucks has offered fun and realistic driving for the past several decades! This new kit takes that driving fun to the next level with this tow truck, which makes its living towing heavy-duty vehicles such as semi-tractor trucks. It promises a completely different element of enjoyment to predecessors in the series.

The kit seen here recreates the FH16 that is marketed by Volvo, a renowned manufacturer in the global commercial vehicle market. The FH Series includes a 750hp 16.1 litre turbocharged inline-6 engine FH16 Globetrotter 750 8x4 tow truck.
