Finally coming to the end of this project,I just need to figure out how to make my outriggers strong enough to take some abuse.

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…

niiice modell :-) congrat´s with the build
and for your outriggers use some aluminium bars or iron paint them black
then build the woodpost around if you want …. sorry but if you want to play with it
you have to inforce those outriggers some how and make the shortcut in metal
no one wuold blame you for that … lol

good luck
Dennis

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.
