Here are three for the fire trucks in 1:50 scale. First the 379 Peterbilt punper I entered in the contest.

I have to add this one (5 really) as the system is one of my all time favorites. FDNY Super Pumper System from Code 3 Collectibles.

Here\'s my almost finished 389 Peterbilt pumper/tanker or tender depending on which part of the US you are in at the time. At my old department, tankers flew (planes) and tenders hauled water.

This is a Corgi Mack CF tower ladder that was streched out and had compartments and an axle added. The compartments under the tower are .040 plastic, from scratch, the rest is die cast.

This is from my N scale layout, a pewter kit from GHQ, three kits actually. The cab is a cut down Peterbilt 359, the pump panel is from an American La France pumper and the ladder is from an American LaFrance ladder truck.

That makes 12 by my count, and 11 of them are mine. How about some Euro rigs? I know the German Feuerwehr has a wide variety of specialized equipment, so let\'s see some of them.

Here is a Dinky Streamlined Fire Engine from the 1950\'s. #25h, it came to me in poor shape but had an excellent casting. I stripped and repainted it and put a new ladder on the roof with a new wire (18g) and a new brass bell. It also received one new axle and all new tires. Detailing was quite simple. Enjoy
