After almost 6 years in service with the Stud City Fire Department, Engine 5's 2006 Seagrave Marauder went in to the SCFD shops today to receive some much needed updates. First, a new bumper was added along with a brand new LED light package.
Next the crew added a pair of bull horns and nicknamed the first Engine in the Department, the name was added above and reads, "You get the Horns", the idea is to add a matching pair of horns to the new Tower Ladder 6 once it arrives in late December/ early January and add "You mess with the bull".
Next Engine 5 received some new windows (all trans clear) and a color coded pump panel. Lastly, some new steps where added to the engine.
I hope you guys all enjoy the new features added to the truck, even though I have had it built for about 5 months, it needed some updates. One of the mayor problems I was having was its stability, so I took it apart and rebuilt it from the ground up...
Most of the decals where hand made, I wasn't pleased with the tone of yellow my printer was giving me, so I took a yellow sharpie and colored some strands of paper, then glued them on. Not the best technique, but it looks pretty good. I also straightened out some of decals after I took pics, but was to lazy to re-take some pictures, as I have a final tomorrow and need some study/sleep time.
I figured what could be the most efficient way...YOU pick what YOU think would be the best 3 trucks I should have with YOUR trucks...would it be a big trouble for you to make such a post? ultimate firefighting team, or a title of your own, you know the needs of Cybercity, tall buildings, [tiller] and Cybercity has civil contracts to help out other cities as well, forests fire has to be covered, [pick-up? utility truck 4x4?] I d like it to be as accurate as possible, and appreciate any help from the guys in the fire com, wich I totally respect and admire!
it shows right away when a piece has been worked on, and re-polished, again , and again, the sculpting on utility trucks like firefighting machines is one of the toughest, I know very well as I get to build many types with a city like mine, over 100 cars + 80 trucks, and I know my fire fighting fleet is nt the best on the pages, although I ll work on it some more like you paulo, re-polish is key to perfection, your truck is fab! if you can check my emergency post, I d appreciate it, as I mostly did it for 'emergency' guys like you and all firefighting guys here! so come on and check if I did it ok, it s my first, so there might be things I forgot, I ll be obliged to anyone who can help me make it as accurate as possible! thanks!
