About this creation
Hello my Fellow Builders. As Some of you know I had ordered a Rescue truck from fellow Builder Matt Miller and around the end of May he sent it to me, but the "smart" people with the United States Postal Service lost it (he sent it to the right address and everything, he is not at Fault for this). I talked to Matt about this and he said that he would be willing to build me a new replacement Rescue at no extra cost.

Now originally I sent him the Sutphen Rescue to replace it, but the other day while I was looking at pictures of Mack CF's it got me thinking that I could use a CF in my fleet. So going back and forth between EB and LDD I worked up the Mack CF Rescue you see below and I wanted a different view point on it other than just mine and Matt's.

In other words, what would you rather see Running with the Lego Scotia Fire Department? The Mack CF walk-in, or the Sutphen walk around? Leave a comment below telling me what you think and which one you would rather see in real bricks.

(Rig spec's below final picture)






















Option A.) Sutphen Rescue

This is a 2012 Sutphen Walk Around Rescue. This bad girl is powered by a roaring Cummings Engine and a cab that seats 6 Rescue operators. This rig is covered in Compartment with plenty of space for any and all Rescue Equipment. Lighting is LED provided by Whelen and the all-Around Scene Lighting can a turn Darkened highway at midnight into Day. This girl has the sutphen signature Federal-Q mounted on the grill. The Running Price for this girl, you don't even wanna know.

Option B.) Mack CF Rescue

This is a 1973/1989/2009 Mack CF walk in Rescue. This old girl saw many years with multiple departments and still hasn't given up quite yet. In 1989 the Enclosed cab was added on and certain chassis work was done. In 2008 the old girl was sold to the LSFD to be placed as a Reserve Rescue. Due to the old girls aging body work the whole rig was retro fitted with a New Body, new lighting and a new Detroit Diesel Engine.

Due to a new need for a Rescue the "boy's upstairs" are thinking that it would be easier and cheaper to move this old girl from Reserve Status to being a Front-line rig. She has the space for all the tools and is a Fan Favorite amongst the old timers.

So Please, Choose which one you would like to see and I will sent it to Matt for Construction. Thanks for stopping by!

I like the CF, but why do you have smaller compartments in the back?

No doubt the Mack. The design really captures that vintage model well at that scale, the other one is not as genuine. Chris

Well all, after modifying the Mack a little more I fell in love with it, so I will shortly be posting it up here and send Matt M. the file. Thank you all for your Help with this and thank you Paulo for the Mack CF Cab.

Quoting Anthony V Well, go with what your department needs. In my own personal opinion, I would go with the Mack CF because it is smaller and can maneuver through small streets. Also, the Mack is a walk-in, which I personally think is better for the crew. What Paulo means is remove the 1989 Glider Kit. The cab on the Mack CF should only seat two.
I figured that's what he meant. And having a Smaller Rescue would be better from my Department.

Quoting Paulo Rodriguez Well duh, the CF, how can you use my cab design and not pick it? lol jk. Both trucks are very nice, I would just remove the jump seat area in the CF and you would be good!
you got me there. now, when you say remove the jump seats, does that mean like remove the rear doors and move the cab back, or what? I mean, I like how it looks like this, but i am open to change if needed
