Tamiya TrucksUltimate in realism. Heavy metal parts, realistic pickup bodies, 4x4 and 3-speed manual transmission make Tamiya radio control trucks a must buy for the scale r/c modelers.

The picture says it all. There is no other company that makes trucks as detailed and realistic as Tamiya Corporation. Among the scale rc trucks, my favourite is the Tamiya Toyota Tundra.

Add the Multi Function unit for the Highlift pickups to simulate an engine starting (with sound), beeping of the horn, turn on/off headlights, blinkers, turn signals and more. Watch the video to feel the realism.

Tamiya produced over 50 models of rc trucks in the past 30 years. No other company even comes close. Here are some of the best Tamiya trucks for sale at hobby shops and online stores.

The Tamiya Wild Willy is my favorite. Back in 1980 I bought the Original 1/10 Tamiya Wild Willy. And 20 years later I couldn't resist buying the 2000 version, the 1/10 Tamiya Wild Willy 2. In my opinion, the best fun vehicle ever made.

And several types of trailers such as tankers, flatbeds and containers.

It's amazing to watch the cab back into one of the trailers and hitch connect to it like the real version. Truly the ultimate in realistic radio control.

And there are so much more Tamiya trucks to choose from. Here are some of the best.
