It’s no secret that the small-scale trail truck scene has been booming in recent years. One of the best-known brands in that area of the hobby, ROCHobby, has released the Magnum (#ROC11814RTRGN), a new 1/18-scale, ready-to-run (RTR), retro-styled truck that’s just begging to be customized.
With body lines and features found on pickup trucks of the 1950s, the Magnum features an ABS-plastic body with a chrome-finished grille, bumpers, and body accents. The tailgate can be raised and lowered, letting your imagination and creativity run wild while customizing and driving this tiny truck.
Not stopping at the exterior, the interior of this 1/18-scale truck also features a detailed dashboard. LED headlights, taillights, and Cooper Discoverer STT Pro tires cap off the visual goodies found on this truck.
The Magnum’s chassis is also quite scale in appearance, featuring a ladder-frame design and straight axles. This model includes a 2.4GHz radio system and 2-in-1 ESC/receiver combo to keep the under-hood electronic compartment neat and tidy.
