This is 1/24 scale in resin from SSB Resin. Nice casting with tons of details. Here is everything that comes with this truck so it is not just a cab.

It's my first time building a completely resin kit so it has been a learning process, big one. Not to bad though, just patience and lots of sanding.

First colors applied to the cab.

1965 Chevrolet Fire Engine

Finally done. At least until I think of something else to do it later on down the road, but I am ready for something new to work on.

Revell 1964 Chevy truck kit for the cab, AMT ALF Pumper for the chassis and wheels. Everything else is scratch built, resin, left over photo etch and this and thats. Decals are custom made by Die Cast and Decals.

While the decals are for my department, the truck is fictional. Sort of a what if we had a Engine 2 in 1965. Which is also the idea behind the truck. Sort of a homemade fire truck built in the station by volunteers in the evenings after work, built with what ever donations or parts they could get. Since they are not professional fire truck builders, it turns out nice but has it's little imperfections here and there that give it it's character.
:D
