My newest second fire truck, this one is a lot better than the first one, surely. It's Engine 54 ''Never Missed a Performance'', from New Yorks one and only Fire Department: FDNY. Hope you like it.
If you know which rig I replicated (is it a Seagrave, is it a Pierce etc.), tell me, cause I don't know...
And a very little credit to Sven Jagdmann, I saw his idea of turning the sirens 45 degrees so they look like the FDNY sirens.
Side, with the light grey center piece in all it's button-and-dialness...
3/4 view from the other side, the center grey piece has hose connections here.
3/4 rear view, Sirens, some inlays for beams, and a ladder. Not that detailed ladder, but it was difficult for this scale.
Interior, rather simple, Place for four firemen, and a steering wheel.
The reference pic I used when I built this model. Not owned by me, just to let you see the real truck. And I used other pics for the rear and right side.
Please rate and comment!
Oh, and to you fire specialist MOCers: please don't be too picky about the model (like ''you forgot a dial on the side''), I made this truck with attention to detail, not for every single dial on the side.
Please forget my first truck too, It was my first try and too hard for a first try. And I made a snorkel instead of a ladder. FAIL. So here's a not ladder, found by Google...
Lol, thought I left a comment here ages ago :D @Sven: I am glad you like this truck mate! I will set it in the description ;) Hmmm, my ref. pic doesn't cleared up this water gun. No idea what the yellow thing is... Maybe this pic helps? http://www.rescue911.de/data/thumbnails/661/2009_09_17_nyc_eng54.jpg And the credits are because of the fact you made a creation with an idea like this one :) @TLNA: Thanks a lot! I saw it :D saw the finished car already :) @Kevin, Nick, Marcus, Joe: Thanks buddies: I am glad you help me getting further in Firetruck business by giving me such nice comments :) Thanks all!
Hey my friend :) Nice to see a FDNY truck from you. First, it's a 2003 Ferrara 1000/500 High Pressure Pumper. You did a really nice job on this rig and you get better and better. I like it very much but there are some details where i'm thinking about. You forgot the deck gun on the roof of the pump panels. What is the yellow thing on right side of the pump panel? Another thing, the sirens are lightbars and you don't need giving me credit for the 45 degrees angle. It's the only way to make it right ;) But thanks a lot for mention me. I hope there is more to come from you on the firetruck sector. Really nice truck Loek :)
