The Tamiya rendition 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.
