A Fire Engine as used by the London Fire Brigade in the UK.
About this creation
Well after some time planning, here is my Fire Engine, as used by the London Fire Brigade.
I don't really know alot about Fire Engines but all I can say is that this is based on a 2003/4 Mercedes Atego.
This has probably been one of my most challenging models yet as I decided on building this as a 7 wide. It can seat comfortably 4 minifigs.
It has many features and you will see these in detail over the next few pictures.










Room for 4 crew. They have to wear their flat caps in the crew cab, but not to worry, their helmets are stored safely in a locker on the truck.


Opening lockers.


And more opening lockers.



A hose is stored on the roof just under the ladder.
Below it is attached to a tap on the Fire Engine. The other end would be attached to a fire hydrant.



The fire crew and their equipment.
There is:
Extendable ladder
Roof ladder
Chainsaw
Hammer
Fire axe
Disc-cutter
Broom
Torch
Radio
Breathing apparatus
Hose.
There is also a retractable hose fixed in the first locker on the passenger side.




A few building notes:
Every part used (apart from the stickers) is 100% genuine Lego.
The windscreen is the glass from a patio window. It is held in place by a Lego Technic rubber band looped over 4 1x1 clips.
Actually it's the same pane of glass used in the patio window that was the windscreen for my MAN TG-X 8x4 (XXL) Truck. With the frame it fits an 8 wide and without it fits a 7 wide, bit of a handy tip there. The only headache comes in working out how it is going to be attached.
The blue beacons are Lego "Light and Sound" covers.
The rubber hose is a Lego pneumatic hose.
For the stickers I used a printable adhesive backed transparent plastic sheet for the warning stripes and normal A4 adhesive label sheet for the rest. I wanted to use the plastic sheets for all the stickers but I had problems with printing a white colour on them (basically my printer doesn't print in white). This meant normal adhesive label paper had to be used, not ideal but there you go.
Anyway I hope you enjoyed looking at this MOC. Please comment and rate.

You know I have never been to the u.k., I have seen some photos of fire trucks from over there and as well as in movies. I gotta say this is very detailed if you ask me. I really like what you done here. I live in connecticut in the us and you don't see red and yellow fire trucks at all really. Maybe red trucks with yellow stripes but that's about it. I believe those two colors go well like that. It is different but I like to see different and this is realistic looking. I love the chevrons there, I have to find a way to get some printouts for the ones I like to do rather than cutting out reflective tape and getting all the angles right. Very nice andy lots of respect for your page

Quoting Eric and Lawson B Hey Andy, is the band you use for the windscreen the x138? Still love this MOC! Eric.
Hi Eric, to be honest I don't really know what type the band is. It was from the Star Wars Technic Battle Droid set and it was one of the thicker ones. There were loads of elastic bands with that set so I had quite a few to choose from. Hope this helps, your friend in bricks Andy

This truck is awesome. I like everything about it. You did a great job on this.. I dont see how you made it so awesome and it is 7 wide. I know it's hard to build like that.

Quoting Ape Fight This is excellent - easily as good as anything in Miniland made by Lego's own people. All the firefighting details rendered superbly, plus its recognisable as an MAN too. A 10/10 creation
thanks mate, although this is meant to be a mercedes rather than a MAN. I'm glad you like it anyway

Hi Andrew I am tempted to say : the bigger the better. Your 3 emergency vehicles are excellent but this one is the best for me.

Quoting Eric and Lawson B Andy, boy did you outdo us all with this one! The amount of planning you did is very obvious. The cab that can seat four is perfect. The level of detail is also up to your amazing standards. Your innovation in technique also astounds. This is by far the best minifig scale fire engine from either side of the Atlantic! Regards friend, Eric.
Thank you so much, Eric. Coming from you this means a lot and I am astounded how highly you rate this MOC. I appreciate yours and everyones support and comments as always, your friend in bricks, Andy

Once again you've built a really well detailed emergency vehicle. I think this one is your best though because of all the great little features such as the equipment, crew,etc. Great job and hope to see lots more from you Andy
