The Model

This fully functional Twistlock for models in 1/14 scale (1:TAM)  provides the highest amount of faithfulness. The Twistlock can be  mounted on Tamiya®- Trailers in combination with the COMVEC- Crossmember for Tamiya®-Trailers.

According to the real Twistlock, the Pin of this model can completely be sunk in the housing (Retractable Twistlock) and can be  fixed in the end positions by tightening the locking nut as it is prescribed for trailers in Europe.

In detail, the Twistlock considered here consists of a casted housing, a pin with a locking ring, an outer and a guide bush as well as a locking nut. All free-formed parts of the retractable Twistlock are made of fine casted alpaca (nickel silver).


Product variant: Tamiya Twistlock - rawparts

The components of the twistlock are still on sprues. These must be removed before assembly and the separation points have to be grinded.

Product variant: Tamiya Twistlock - finished

The components of the twistlock have been separated from the sprue and are grinded. Thus, they can be mounted immediately.



The easiest way to mount these Twistlocks on a Trailer, is to use the M3 threading in the back of the Housing. Alternatively, a rectangular structure on its backside allows the Twistlock to be(hard) soldered or glued.

Apart from outside of the housing the items should not be painted, in order to ensure the proper and smooth functioning.
