Nicely done ! It looks great and a unique subject . The only thing I don't like about it is that I won't be seeing any more updates in the WIP thread .

Charlie... just to say "nice job" or "great model" doesn't even come close. B)

I just don't know how some of you guys do it. The details are incredible! Awesome truck!

Thanks for the kind remarks, Guys. The engine at the rear of the rig is a '32 Ford Model B. I added some things to it but most is out of the box. The head and manifold were missing so I had to scratch build those.

There will be a companion piece coming soon. The State of Massachusetts purchased 13 identical '38 Ford COE's after the 1938 hurricane that left so much debris throughout the state. I have a resin cab and will begin collecting data once I find one of the rigs to measure and photograph. There is one still around that I will seek out. Will be posting as I go on this one as well.

Loved seeing this one come together, and love the finished product! It would be a shame taking a truck that pretty out into the brush...

Here is a photo of the real truck taking down a 6" pine. This was obviously a demonstration run as there is no fire as you can see.
