Official Tamiya product videos of Comical Hornet, Dual Rider (T3-01) & Volvo FH16 Globetrotter 750 6×4 Timber Truck

R/C models don’t come much more legendary than The Hornet, one of Tamiya’s signature 2WD models and the 1984 release which started the off-road buggy boom. The Hornet legend continues now with the Comical Hornet, which features a stylish body and exciting chassis that offers hours of driving fun. The WR-02CB chassis is a fun rear-wheel drive unit with wide tread, a longitudinal battery pack position, and even depictions of rear exhausts. Give it maximum acceleration to perform exciting wheelies!

The Dual Rider has a futuristic body shape with prominent overarching canopy, and was designed by Takayuki Yamazaki. It is molded in lightweight polycarbonate. The included driver figure offers numerous arm positions and headgear options, while separately sold LEDs can be used for the headlight. The 3-wheel T3-01 chassis front section houses R/C equipment and battery, and the rear section holds the integrated gearbox and motor.

Volvo is a renowned actor in the global commercial vehicle market, with one of their flagship brands being the FH Series that underwent a full model change in 2012. This R/C model assembly kit recreates the 750hp 16.1-liter turbocharged inline-6 engine FH16 Globetrotter 750 6×4 timber truck from that range. The model has a realistic body, and a chassis featuring numerous metal parts. Gear changes are also possible via transmitter controls. Length: 733mm, width: 194mm, height: 306mm.
