This is an R/C model assembly kit of the multi-purpose 425, a vehicle in the famed and long-running Mercedes-Benz Unimog series. The polycarbonate body captures with great accuracy the squared lines of the 425, including the boxy cabin and square headlights. This kit also includes separate parts to depict side mirrors and snorkel, plus metal-plated parts capturing the light cases and emblems with aplomb. The all-terrain CC-01 chassis is a perfect choice to accompany this rugged all-rounder, and is matched with block tires for great performance on- and off-road.
The CC-01's highly reliable and efficient full-time 4WD system features a longitudinally-positioned motor, which transmits power to the front wheels via the gearbox and to the rear wheels via propeller shaft. Front and rear differentials enable smooth cornering, and for even greater off-road performance on rough terrain, the rear differential may be locked during assembly. The chassis suspension employs double-wishbone front upper single links and lower H-shaped arms plus rear rigid suspension. With 4 CVA oil dampers in total fitted to the front and rear, there's enough cushion to take on even the roughest surfaces. It also looks the part, with cool black dish-type wheels, plus 94mm-diameter block tread pattern tires.
