    The fire"truck" is 1/24. The 1917 WWI model T ambulance on the same catalog page is to be 1/35 armor scale.

    WOW, now that is an unexpected entry! I love it, but you have a fair amount of work ahead of you my friend. I respect the choice though, it was a fast car. For it's time, on asphalt, on the track.  So it does still have attributes that should come in handy in the outback. Such as reasonably aerodynamic shape of the body, low weight, low centre of gravity. If you can make it reliable, it could well become a strong competitor.  Good thing the deadline is far ahead.

    There is a picture of it in their 2016 catalog. I couldn't figure how to pick up the image and post it here, but see for yourself. It is a ways down, on page 26.

    It looks kind of funny for a firetruck though. As it is a red roadster complete with turtle deck and all. The turtle deck holds a metal basket (presumably for firefighting gear) and a ladder strapped onto the side of the body. I don't know, maybe it would be adequate for small fires..   And also I guess I should remember that automobiles for firefighting were a fairly new science back in 1914, so it is fair to assume that the firetruck as we think of it today had not quite found it's shape and form yet.

    I didn't get to start on my Ventura yet, but that is good information to have.
     
    And also; Thank you for coming out with the alert ahead of the storm, rather than waiting until somebody notices and spread the word (usually in an unkind manner) or just pretending everything is fine. Actually, your interactiveness and accessibility is one of the things I really love about your company :-)

    Spyker, Bristol, SEAT, Gurgel..     We could make a long list of these.

    Let's try another one; Sometimes it's like someone took a knife, baby,
    Edgy and dull,
    And cut a six-inch valley
    Through the middle of my skull.

    Answer; Beethoven 9th symphony, also known as "Ode to joy". Kind of outrageous to think that people who like music doesn't know this one...

    oh yeah, oh yeah

    Hint; These lyrics are not in English, but the English-speaking part of the audience doesn't seem to mind and we all on here like good music, yes? I'm sure you know this one. The creator is recognized as a musical talent arguably greater than that of all the Beatles-members combined. Unfortunately though, he never got to actually hear this one being played..

    This band saw only modest commercial success, but were very influential. So they were not Beatles or Rolling Stones big, but they nonetheless got inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and got a Grammy Lifetime Achievement Award.

    Deine Zauber binden wieder
    Was die Mode streng geteilt;
    Alle Menschen werden Brüder,
    Wo dein sanfter Flügel weilt.

    I would have Revell AG make a Fiat-derived Russian Lada. Both in VFTS and civilian guise.
