Work is done on the 1953 Reo Gold Comet Rescue.  It's full size protégé is the rig from Port Vue, PA.  But I took some liberty with the build to put my own livery on it.  The outside styling is close but the cab interior and what I put in the compartments is my own idea since I had no idea as to what Port Vue actually carried.  Anyway here it is in photo form.  The rig is now in the display case.  On to the next one, whatever it may be.131.JPG.01641f45f004b3b65ba5137ed6d961d3.JPG133.JPG.59581501dcaf34b045cc529bc595d80c.JPG134.JPG.6ed135dab9d608026f5e8618c93f4e36.JPG136.JPG.1a9e63ff460adbe6840c73c340b43041.JPG138.JPG.b912de894001a5094095df79f7ff3aa0.JPG

This was an Amazing build to watch come together!! I enjoyed every minute of it! The extra details knock this one out of the park! I really took some notes on the engine! I hope to build one for a White project some day, as White bought that engine and used it in their truck line later. Top notch work as always! This thing looks Awesome!

You hit this one out of the park!

I can’t wait to see it in person, although it may be some time!

Any plans for a combined show like what you contemplated last Sept.?  Or will you just wait till next year?

Great looking Reo.  Very nice!  I see the door logos are for Old Forge.  There is an Old Forge, NY, not far from me up in the Adirondacks.

Another amazing creation from Charlie!  Strange to see fire apparatus in blue, but I like it!

I know, Peter but that's what the real one's color was and it just looked right.  It's a close match.  Lot's of things like that in the area it is from.

I wasn't questioning your color choice Charlie, I just thought it was unusual (in a good way).  I have seen fire apparatus in the standard red, fluorescent yellow/green, and even white, but until now I have never  seen it in blue.

No, I know you weren't and I didn't take it as a criticism!🙂 Meshanticut Fire Company in Warwick, RI had a blue Hahn back in the 1970's/80's that was pretty sharp.  They are unusual, that is for sure.

Peter you should check out Pennsylvania rigs, Moon township trucks used to be  painted with 1957 Cadillac blue. Grapeville has purple trucks.
