Wow, that is a very nice and detail fire truck. It sounds like you are going to let it be used? I’d have it in a display case for the little ones to oogle over. It is too nice to subject to play time!

Wish I would’ve had one of these when I was a kid! I guess I’ll just have to make one for myself now…

Thanks for all the comments, I have three of these on the go, hopefully I will sell a couple to subsidize my hobby.In the past my truck models have been targeted toward being as realistic as possible and yet strong enough for the kids to play with. Now I am moving toward display type models.Martin
