Tamiya 56312 RC Volvo FH12 Globetrotter 420

Description: The FH series semi-tractor truck was released in the fall of 1993 and became Volvo's primary truck. In 1994, it was awarded the prestigious "Truck of the Year" title. It's huge 12-liter inter cooled turbo diesel engine was known as the "Euro 2", and was the result of state-of-the-art engineering technology for its day.


  • 3-speed transmission with constant mesh gears
  • Metal rail chassis Scale suspension with heavy duty metal leaf-springs and coil spring dampers
  • Propeller-shaft driven rear axles (both axles are used to drive the truck)
  • Numerous scale body accessories including metal grab rails and side mirror supports, metal dual exhaust pipes and chrome plated parts (grille, fuel tanks, side steps, horns, wipers, visor, rims, bumpers, light mounts, mirrors and tire guards)
  • Built-in Box trailer made of high quality aluminum
  • Oilite bearings (bushings).


  • Injection molded body (White) and truck interior
  • 10 scale appearance rims and tires
  • 540 motor Decal sheet (with license plate decal for bumpers)
  • Mud flaps
  • Illustrated instructions


  • Radio: 4-channel with 4-channel receiver and analog trim functions
  • Servos: Two standard size (1-steering, 1-shift)
  • Electronic Speed Control: Tamiya TEU302BK recommended, do not use the Tamiya TEU101BK or the TEU104BK
  • Battery: 6-cell flat pack (or 7-cell hump)
  • Charger for battery pack


  • Length: 17.32"
  • Width: 7.40"
  • Gear Configuration: Low (1st) gear ratio: 1:32.49 Middle (2nd) gear ratio: 1:17.66 Top (3rd) gear ratio: 1:10.66

Comments: The Tamiya Multi Function Control Unit is not included and provides many different truck related sound effects.

Both vehicle types require a 4 channel stick type radio for full function. If you're going to outfit your vehicle with one of our multifunction units (MFU), you will need to choose a analog radio. Shifting into gear is extremely easy once your transmission is adjusted correctly.

Our Semi trucks and Highlifts use 3speed transmissions for more maneuverability and true scale realism. Whether you're hauling a big load or climbing some rough terrain, the ability to shift into low gear can make the difference. High speed runs are no problem once you kick it into 3rd gear, when its time to move out!

Below you will see the basic concept on how the servo moves the transmission into all three gears. It is best to get the transmission adjusted with your trims centered and only using the collar on the transmission rod to adjust final increments. This will allow for the best operation if you're using a MFU unit.

*Make sure to use loctite on the grub screw in the collar to prevent having to readjust the transmission again.

*Taking a little extra time to set the transmission up will provide you with better performance and less adjustments down the road.
