This is a 1/16 scale 1914 Dennis fire truck. Lots of scratchbuilt parts, including the ladders (made of real wood) and many other details added. Thanks to Dan Baker for the "spare," and Charlie Rowley for the custom decals.

 

WIP here if you're interested.

Spectacular build, Harry!

 

 

Glad I could help, even in such a very small way.

Firemen don't care what's behind them, only what's in front of them.  ^_^

 

No windshield, either. No A/C, no cruise control, not even heated seats! Those guys had to rough it back then! (although I think they kept a bottle of scotch in one of the storage bins...)  :lol:

Your red paint really laid down nice. Looks great with the gold trim.

 

Let's go start a fire and see how she does !
