F150 Fire Truck in Model Trucks: Pickups, Vans, SUVs, Light Commercial Posted April 30, 2015 No not really. I had a Lindberg F150 kit that was partially built so I thought I would build a truck that I think could be utilised by the Fire Service here (I have been a firefighter here in Queensland for the last 8 years). The original idea was to mount a swift water rescue boat on top, with lockers to stow equipment but also have a tray area for wet gear. The tray was kept high so that the 4WD capabilities would not be compromised. Our mining vehicles have very similar rear trays on them for maintenance utes so I copied that concept. The addition of the extinguishers came about from a raceway diorama we were building here so I thought I could double this vehicles use by having a removable tray that held the extinguishers and hand tools as well. This build was purely a "What if I designed a truck for work".
