Freaking wow! Great job with the truck. Oh and the lights are nice too... :)

Quoting Bob K Oh, man, this thing is SICK!! That light show is awesome! Honestly, though, do the wires take up a lot of space, which will keep the minifigs out of the cab and no tools to be in the compartments? That is why I didn't do my fleet.
Compared to E1 this rig is way better. Only down fall is I made my own Lego light bar so their are six sets of wires I have to figure out how to hide. But other wise the battery is in the pump so you cant see that. The front compartment is where I make all my connections. The middle compartments has no visible wires on either side and has tool boards with tools in them. The rear compartment has one set of tiny wires so I can use alot of that space too. The only problem is my compartment doors don't open very easy. But I can fit 4 mini figs perfectly in the cab. Just a few wires in their face till I decide how I want to hide them.

Quoting Brian Stanis wow wow wow wow. Nate this rig turned out fregin amazing its deff your best work yet. And Im glad the decals worked so well! they look great. I checked out the led website you got ur stuff from seems pretty reasonable. Can you sync the lights? cause it looks like you did at some points. this truck is pushing me to try some lights some time. lol anyway amazing build!
Thanks Brian. The Squad was really the trial and error of messing with the decals. I used 3v LEDs in the squad and was able to hide the battery in between the wheels in its own compartment below the middle compartment. In this engine I was able to hide the 9v battery inside of the pump. unfortunately there was no way of hiding all the wires but they are way better placed then my first mess, E1. You definitely have to design the truck with the capability of having special bricks to run the lights/wires through. I even had to drill a few holes. this engine has 30 LED lights in it. 15 fast red, 6 fast red/white, 4 fast yellow (arrow stick) 1 normal flash yellow, 2 solid warm white for headlights, 2 normal flash warm white for headlight flashers. The lights come as a random pattern. they go from flashing at the same time to alternating then back to the same time. the only thing you can really control is the speed and that is by choosing from the two different flash speeds normal or fast. however out of the 15 fast reds i got 4 of them had a flaw where they flashed super fast like a strobe light. i place 2 in front and two in back so be sure they are all the same speeds and test when and if u get some. The red/white lights are their own thing though and I would highly recommend them. also i didnt like some of the lights i got so before i installed them i sent them back and they shipped me the new ones i wanted to trade.

Quoting Lego Fire Museum Inc. This looks great. I am glad that you did not go overboard with stickers. This is just a great looking truck by itself. The lights are awesome and it is marked up just right. I am a big fan of company numbers of the front grill; Let 'em know who's comin'! Keep up the great work.
Yea I was very satisfied with it before the lights and decals. This was the first truck I included headlights with inner headlight flashers and an arrow-stick on the rear. It was by accident that I received 4 LEDs that flash super fast giving it a strobe effect and I used new duel color flashing red/white LEDs so there appears to be twice as many lights as I actually have. Pictures can't describe how awesome this truck looks in front of me. I am very satisfied :)

Quoting Andy Thomas Awesome build! Your truck beats the pants off my 8 wide! Did you use my hose bed technique with the dividers?
Haha yes Andy those are similar to your hose bed dividers. Honoustly seeing your engine was my motivation to making as detailed as engine as possible. My original hose bed design was not small enough to work with the height of this truck. I will give u credit when I update it later this evening.

Quoting Paulo Rodriguez Very awesome, love the front not sur eabout the lights but I guess they must be this way for LEDs right?
Some lights on the truck look better trans red and some trans clear. However I can't do half and half. Unfortunately the front-end suffered. But it is legit if you look at seagrave recent deliveries to use the same number of lights in the same place/pattern through my truck.

This looks great. It is the best Seagrave I have seen on MOC Pages. You have made me seriously rethink the face of my Seagrave pumper. Personally I don't think you need decals. I am a big fan of simple, clean and uncluttered trucks. This may be just because of where I have grown up where we have rather plain trucks with not a lot of gold leaf and striping. If I grew up on Long Island I might have come to prefer more versus less. Anyway, you have built a great truck here. I am sure that it will look terrific with the decals. The lights just put it over the top. One thing that I want to raise is a point that I think Bob made discussing another truck recently. Roll up compartment doors roll up. They don't have hinges on the top. I love the way you engineered you doors. You obviously thought a lot about the design and it is unique and very creative. But real roll ups don't have that hinge up top and the break in the lines for the hinge looks out of place. Now red roll up doors in Lego are crazy expensive so going with the 1x2 modified bricks with grill is the best way to go. I used these for my Sutphen pumper. http://www.mocpages.com/moc.php/270196 This allowed me to incorporate stripes into the roll up door design. I also use these for all my modern trucks with roll ups for the compartments over the rear wheels. http://www.mocpages.com/folder.php/126710 I like that you have a functioning rig here with opening doors. That is an important detail to me. So there is no right or wrong way to go. But this is just some food for thought. Keep up the great work.

Awesome. Shape and details are absolutely great, much to learn for me from this. I also appreciate the photography. It looks bright and shiny, like fresh from the manufacturer. I don't miss the decals.

Looks great but it will look awesome once you get the lights and decals on her. Keep up the great work nathan.
