@ Jeff, I like the newer design much better. @ Lego Fire, I instantly thought of your designs while trying to suggest a better approach to Jeff. I've been a fan of your designs for a long time now. -Bruce

Looks Great! I do have to echo what LFM said though. Controls are either on the pump, or the rear, not both. And although that Q siren looks GREAT, it is too big.

Jeff, First. The name Brickville Fire Department is already in use in the Lego Fire Community. Please consider changing your department name to some thing else. Second. This is a nice fire engine. The cab design screams Pierce. I do however think the wheels are a little to small for this scale of building. Also, if you have an extension ladder stored with-in the hosebed, as you do, there isn't usually a need for a side mount extension ladder. By removing the side-mount extension ladder, you will be able to add more storage compartment space for other needed firefighting equipment. Look here for an example. http://www.brickshelf.com/cgi-bin/gallery.cgi?f=251347 -Bruce

This is a nice truck. I like Bruce’s link – That is one of my trucks. I think that your updated truck looks a lot better than the original; the larger tires are more proportionate to the scale. I build 8–wide trucks exclusively so of course I like the fact that this truck is 8-wide. I have a couple of suggestions. First, you have to decide if this truck is going to have side-mounted pump controls for a mid-mounted pump or rear-mounted pump controls for a rear-mounted pump. Engines don’t have both. Next, the SNOT technique that you used on the front is really nice. The size of the siren appears to be too big and it takes away from the front of the truck. Keep up the good work.

Thank you! I took your advise and revised the design. I really appreciate comments with constructive criticism.
