This is a Tamiya 1/24 GF01 Metal Dump Truck EP Car Kit.
This special LIMITED EDITION kit takes the standard Heavy Dump Truck and gives it a new meaner look! The livery design concept is based upon the heavy metal style seen in American rock band culture. The body parts are molded in black, with metal-plated chassis parts and new sticker designs.
This special version depicts a dump truck modeled upon those which do the heavy work in locations like quarries and large-scale construction sites. The body is mounted on the popular gear-driven GF-01 chassis.
The GF-01 chassis plays off the successful and fun line-up of RC kits such as the Wild Willy 2, Volkswagen Type 2, and the Farm King Wheelie. Whereas those kits featured a 2WD and easy to wheelie platform, the GF-01 is a 4WD incarnation with the motor directly placed in the center in order to drive the gears in the front and rear gearboxes.
