THIS WAS VERY EXCITING PROJECT TO BUILD IT , AND THAT TAKES ME MORE TIME WAS EXTENDED STAIR. THE FIRE TRUCK DIMENSION ARE 40” LONG, 6”1/2 WIDE AND 7”1/2 HIGH. THE EXTENDED STAIRS MEASURE 60” LONG. TAKE ME TO BUILD APPROXIMATELY 80 HOURS. WHAT WERE MORE DIFFICULT TO BUILD WAS THE STAIRS ALREADY SPREAD WHICH IS DIVIDED INTO 4 PHASES. WE HOPE YOU LIKE. ONE MORE OF MY COLLECTION

Thanks for showing

You models are absolutely amazing!
In my first career I repaired crane booms for awhile. Both lattice and box boom. Do you have any models of cranes?

Thanks for sharing…

Bout time I commented on your projects. My bad…:[..........cause, you are unbelievably good. You some kind of math wizard?
How do you get everything so perfect. Rhetorical, you don’t have to answer.
Fantastic projects, never seen better…................

I will Third that HOLY CRAP! Your models are absolutely amazing! I have to put you on my buddy list to keep an eye on your future projects so I don’t miss any. You are very gifted in your creations to say the least. A few of us last night looked at some of your work and were amazed. I think its time for you to make a aircraft, like an MD-11 or 747. We only say that being were sittiing here awaiting our planes to come in to be fixed for the night. We would love to see the creative way you would highlight our girls.

Great post !!!!!!!!!!!!!
