I have been working on this for 3 months. It is going to the doctor that did my quad bypass in November. He did not clear me in the shop till after Thanksgiving. Red Oak, Walnut, Purpleheart and a little Cedar. Finished with polyurethane. I am going to build two more, changing one into fire rescue truck an the second will be a pumper. They will be for my son, he followed his dad and became a full time firefighter. After that I may try the t & j ladder firetruck, but it looks like it may be above my skill level.

The fire / ladder truck will be as easy as this was for sure.

Also you will be able to correct the errors in the plans better too.

Nice truck ; I am sure the modified versions no harder than this one
I was thinking of using this as a basis for my next project which I hope will be a fire service pumper
but I think I will just make it from memories and pictures
But I gotta finish the hydraulic crane I am building first

Now that is one brilliant truck Fireman and to give to the doctor who helped you with your health is a superb gester to show gratitude. The timber contrasts are great….

Great job there svfdfireman. You shouldn’t have much issues with the firetruck especially once you’ve completed the other 2 ambo’ look alikes.
