Tamiya 1/14 Mercedes-Benz Arocs 3348 6x4 Tipper Truck (Unassembled Kit)

Tamiya is proud to announce that our model of the Mercedes-Benz Arocs 3348 6x4 Tipper Truck has received the prestigious Truck Model Star award from a major German hobby industry publisher. The Arocs series is a line of heavy-duty models introduced in 2013 by the world's leading truck manufacturer, Daimler AG (Germany). This R/C model assembly kit recreates the dual rear axle-driven Arocs 3348 6x4 tipper truck, which runs on a 12.8-litre turbocharged inline-6 engine capable of 480hp. The highly detailed body breathtakingly captures the slim line form of the truck cab, including the distinctive bucket tooth design grille. Depictions of headlight guards, front bumper and skid plate underneath are parts of a truly realistic finish.

The assembly type 3-speed transmission allows gear changes via separately available 4-channel transmitter. The ladder frame chassis features aluminium side channels with resin cross members. A realistic 1-piece resin bed is reinforced with a metal frame. Power from the front-mounted motor is delivered to rear axles via propeller shaft; a built-in differential gear on each axle enables smooth cornering. Highly realistic suspension utilises metal leaf springs and friction dampers. The model enjoys easy driving thanks to the float-mounted die-cast front and reinforced resin rear axles.


  • Highly detailed body with depictions of details such as intake duct, mirrors and much more.
  • Features dedicated components for roof-side rails; tipper truck-specific points are faithfully captured.
  • The pictured step is also specific to this tipper truck version of the 3348 Arocs.
  • Sturdy resin bed has an aluminium frame and is mounted to the chassis on a sub-frame.
  • TR Mighty-Tuned Motor (35T) is included to power the 3-speed transmission.     
  • Highly realistic rear suspension uses float-mounted reinforced resin axles and leaf springs.
  • A close-up on the rear fender, which covers both axles. Decals depict non-slip surface.     
  • Why not install a separately sold Multi-Function Control unit for realistic lights, sounds and more?
  • Realistic control of the rear bed can be enabled using the separately sold actuator set.
