Mercedes-Benz Actros 8x4 3-Way Tipper

By: Steven Downes

Presented here is the latest addition to the 1:50th scale truck fleet in the shape of the Mercedes Benz Actros MP3 8x4 with three way tipping body from NZG. The cab tilts forward to uncover the metal engine block mounted to the chassis and the large chromed exhaust stack has an intricate photo-etched cooling jacket which looks very authentic with a metal frame on the opposite side of the chassis.

The roof has two holes where the flexible plastic aerials need fitting while holes in the cab frame allow the rear view mirrors to be easily fitted. The cab doors have handle detail cast into the surface and highlighted with black for added effect with silver highlighted access steps leading up to the cab. The sun visor fitted above the windscreen has a central chromed section, a highlight of the new cab aesthetics and the interior has been replicated with the moulded dashboard and ridged seats clearly visible.

The cab features a new casting with crisply modelled grills and the chromed Mercedes logo is prominently displayed centrally. Integrated driving lights with clear plastic lenses have been added to the bumper with small amber indicator lights on the corners whilst a protective plate has been fitted to the lower edge of the bumper panel.

The front axles have working steering and are fitted with accurately molded rubber tires which have a detailed road tread pattern along with silver wheel hubs. The rear axles are mounted to the rear suspension frame and float, allowing the axles a small amount of oscillation to simulate the suspension found on the full sized truck. A drive shaft is connected between the rear axle hubs but there is no driveshaft from the axle to the transmission block on the sample reviewed here.

The fully functional 3-way tipping body is a nice piece of engineering, allowing the dump bed to be positioned in each of the three tipping configurations. This has been achieved by using plastic strips on the underside of the body which connect to metal ball joints on the chassis. Depending on which pair of ball joints are connected depends on which side the body will tip and this is a very nice feature on the model.

The design of the dump body casting allows for the side doors to swing open with a cleverly constructed hinge on the upper edge. The tailgate can be opened and the casting includes the overhanging rear discharge chute.

Hi guys. Brit from diecastmodels.co. Today we have the Mercedes Benz Actros 8x4 3 Way Tipper. We have it in Klarwein, the blue, the red, and the Reinert. They're all in 1/50th scale, made by NZG. Let's take a look.

This model features rolling rubber wheels that sit on detailed resin hubs. The rear two axles each feature four wheels on them and the front two axles feature two wheels a piece. The front two axles are steered tandomly and they feature a different hub than the non-steerable axles. On the front of the model the Mercedes emblem is very pronounced and it's in chrome and it looks great. There's also a generic license plate on the front. The wind screen is done very well and has a replicated windshield wiper. There's also a replicated sun guard and two aerial antennas.

On top of the operator's cab there are two chrome air horns along with a sunroof. On the inside of the operator's cab there is the driver's seat, passenger's seat, steering wheel, and a detailed dash. Directly behind the operator's cab is the replicated muffler exhaust system and, on the opposite side, is the air intake.

The tipper body lifts up and it's operated by a single hydraulic cylinder. The hydraulic cylinder jacket is made up of hard resin and the cylinder ram is made up of metal. The rear fenders are diamond plated and have the anti-slip texture on them and are replicated very well. The tipper door also opens so stuff can come out of it. Also on the rear there are well replicated tail lights that are painted on. They are red and orange. And at the front of the model there are replicated headlights that are a clear resin. On the side of the operator's cab there are replicated integrated step sides with anti-slip texture on them.

Once again, these are the Mercedes Benz Actros 8x4 3 Way Tipper. We have it in Klarwein, the Reinert, the red, and the blue colors. You can get yours today at www.diecastmodels.co . Thanks for tuning in. You'll see me next time.
