Comment on this model.

This model is a Meiller tipper mounted on a Mercedes-Benz Arocs 8x4 chassis and it is finished in a yellow colour scheme.

The Arocs is the Mercedes-Benz truck aimed at the construction sector.


The model comes in an NZG branded box with a window. 

There were missing parts on the review model. A part was detached from the chassis and was loose in the box.  It was easily re-glued in position.

There is no information about the real machine, and as the model is complete out of the box, there are no instructions provided.


This is a heavy model with a relatively low plastic content.  Underneath, the chassis is fully detailed in metal with only the steering linkage being functionally modelled.  The tyres have a decent tread pattern and it is the same on all wheels.

The cab has horns and an aerial on the roof, and another small aerial and a plastic grab rail on the driver's side.  The door mirrors have some texture and the distinctive Arocs grille is modelled with a realistic appearance.  There is a dummy NZG number plate front and rear and there are some tiny Mercedes-Benz graphics which are fairly sharp.

Inside the cab, the seats have arm rests and there is the Mercedes-Benz logo on the steering wheel.

Behind the cab the exhaust and intakes are modelled in plastic.  The wheel arches are metal throughout and the light bar at the rear has nice plastic lenses.

The Meiller tipper body is metal with a single stage hydraulic ram. The mechanisms for the opening sides are modelled but are not functional.


The truck rolls well and the steering can be posed to a very good angle.

The tipper body raises to a very good angle. 

The tailgate opens but is not free-swinging.


It is well made model with a high metal content. 

The paint and graphics are very good.


It is reasonable value.


This is another good quality Arocs tipper model with a striking colour scheme.


The Arocs model first appeared in prototype at the Nuremberg Toy Fair 2014.
