Really wonderful build sequence pictures. With those pictures you should maybe post your plan drawings. I get the feeling others may want to try build something like this. It will make an outstanding display model even without the working water hose, etc.

OMG ! :o B)
Joe, this is simply stunning. A true ground up build. :) I love your attention to all the finer details, and yes...they are way easier to see in 1/12, but not always easy to do. ;) Great work.

WOW!!! That's great work Joe. I work on the assembly line that builds these so I am climbing all over these on a daily basis. The TI series don't come through all that often but imho are way cooler than the Strikers, much burlier, and fast too. You are doing a fantastic job on your build, keep going, I would love to see this thing operate when it's finished. B)

Sorry, no plans here and we don't have any TI's coming through at the moment so I can't even get you any pics. It doesn't look like you need more anyway, your nailing it.

I work on the final paint end of things, buffing, paint blends and touchup, etc. I have only been working on these trucks since production moved to Pierce MFG, which will be 2 years this October, but I do get to move them around the plant quite a bit and they are some big, awesome machines.

As far as any info I may have....... the only thing I can think of from looking at your progress are missing vents from the rear of the engine cover(there's a pic at the link), other than that your build makes me feel like I'm at work B)....and that's a compliment.

Any specific questions, feel free to ask, I will try to answer any you might have.

Here's a link to my photobucket ARFF pictures, I gathered them from around the web.
