About this creation
This truck was built by the Foamite-Childs Corporation of Utica, New York. Foamite-Childs was born when the O.J. Childís Company of Unitca, New York, acquired the Foamite Firefoam Corporation in 1922. Foamite-Childs produced pumpers, combination hose and chemical cars, city service ladder trucks and quads. In 1927 Foamite-Childs merged with American LaFrance. The last Foamite-Childs apparatus was delivered that year and production was transferred from Utica to Elmira, 140 miles southwest.

The Ford Model T was produced by the Ford Motor Company from 1908 through 1927. It was the first affordable automobile and the car that opened travel to the common middle-class American. It was the first automobile mass produced on assembly lines with completely interchangeable parts.

The Model T was adapted for many uses. The chassis was offered to other manufacturers. Over 15 million Model Ts were built. A significant but unknown number of these ended up a fire apparatus. The rugged and affordable Model T was well suited to the fire service. Many communities across the United States had a Model T as their fire motorized fire apparatus. Many manufacturers, such as Peter Pirsch and Sons, American LaFrance and Howe, used the Model T for chemical cars, hose wagon, pumpers and even small city service ladder trucks.

I think it was very good! I could use this design for my LEGO City Fire Service... LEGO Town anyway. All my LEGO Town has is an apartment, an Underground Station and a park.
