Coming this June is Tamiya’s new Konghead 1/18th scale 6×6 monster truck kit. Based off of the GF-01 the all-new G6-01 6-wheeler chassis utilises three gear differentials, a front-mounted 540-size motor and an independent double wishbone suspension with optional 4-wheel steering capability.

– Brand-new polycarbonate body inspired by the classic Bullhead monster truck.
