Thanks to its sharp turning radius and a maximum payload capacity of 1.5 metric tons, the Asaka Turret Truck is widely used at various wholesale markets in Japan, as well as station yards, warehouses, and factories. With the proper registration, it can even be operated on public roads, although only at speeds of 15 kilometers per hour (about 9mph).
Aoshima's sharp little kit of the Asaka Turret Truck features clean molding and high detail. Molded in white plastic with black vinyl tires. This release includes parts and decals for two complete Turret Truck models, three figures, two trailers, two fish tubs, one two-wheeled cart, one four-wheeled cart, and two frozen tunas! Includes exploded-view pictorial-type instructions, with some notes in English and Japanese.
