American Pumper
My second MOC: an old-fashioned American pumper for 4 minifigs - no special type. The movable roof uses parts of set 7208. Main inspirations by Steven Asbury, Lego Fire Museum, Orion Pax, ImLost and many other great builders. The shape of the mirrors and the handles on top of the windows are copied from builders I don't remember.

Thanks guys, the MOC is still alive, it seems ... ;-) @Rolands: Many thanks, glad to hear that! Maybe it is too huge to be combined with the normal town vehicles. Nowadays I'd rather try to build it as a 7-wide, but I won't take it apart, I somehow like its shape. @Vibor: Glad you like it, mate!

WOW - this is fantastic! Ever considered putting this on CUUSOO? This would perfectly fit the LEGO-City theme, plus it is very very accurate.

That looks great! Very accurate too. The details like headlights and bumpers are a win!

Thanks a lot guys! It's an older MOC, but there is still some feedback, it seems. @LFM: Thanks a lot. You actually did see it, see below - but it's nearly a year now ... Many thanks for mentioning the compartments - my first SNOT-work ;-) @Alex: Many thanks! There's some chrome at the front now - should take some new photos ... @Scott: Many thanks, glad to hear that. Feel free to use the headlight design, you're welcome! @Alex & Austin: Many thanks! @Paul: Thanks a lot for your nice comment (and sorry for the delay ...)! @Chris: Many thanks! I feel that talking to a Chris Melby of January 2012 is a kind of time travel, considering what has happened in the meantime ... Now I rather search through YOUR builds for inspiration ;-) Anyway, sorry for the delay! @Ape: Thanks a lot, another time travel ;-) @Elk: And another one ... Many thanks!

I don't know why I did not see this one sooner. It is really a nice rig. I really like the high side compartments. They are very innovative.

Amazing fire engine, I love the front design. Don't know too much about fire engines, but it looks like a mix of a lot of different eras. I plan to remake my fire engine some time, I hope you don't mind if I use your headlight design, they look really nice. Great job!

This is a comment concerning you channel as well as your builds. I really appreciate your approach to the 8 wide build. Setting some boundaries is always a good way to stay focussed and build some great stuff like this fire truck. Thanks for posting this stuff. I added you to m y fav's, I want to build a detailed 8 wide here in the future, I was thinking a truck and camper, and I was going to search through your builds for inspiration. Chris

This is superb - awesome detailing everywhere! I love it's designed for mini-figs too; it's very playable. 5 stars

Quoting A Taylor Nice work. It's a good engine. The cab looks nice and roomy. How you did the compartments on back is cool as well. Good thinking.
Thank you A Taylor! Glad you like the cab and the compartments. I think the latter was my first real SNOT-work ;-)

Quoting James Keatley very nice, i like the Snot work on the compartments, and the detailed interior
Thank you very much, James. The use of the compartments in this way was rather by accident since I had no other parts for something like this. But hereby I learned something about snotting ;-)

Quoting Lego Fire Museum Inc. Very nice truck. I agree with Paulo that it doesn't resemble any particular manufacturer of apparatus, but then again a lot of Lego trucks don't. You have some nice details such as the high side compartments. I am looking forward to seeing more of your work.
Thank you, I appreciate your comment and rating very much since this is explicitely influenced by your work which I highly estimate. Meeting an original American fire apparatus still seems rather difficult to me, so I tried to imagine something that I thought might exist.

Quoting Paulo Rodriguez Nice job, doesn't really resemble any truck but it has style! Check out some of my rigs! -Paulo R.
Thank you very much, Paulo. That's what I will do right now!
