    i figure i give you a head up on what going on with the truck.
    next im building the tank outer box. but im waiting on .125 styrene oshkosh t1500 fire rescue ARFF 1/12 scale to come in.
    im hoping its here by thursday.
    after the box is made and the front bumper is wired. off to a buddy of mine (greg) it goes
    greg is going to wire up the lights and sounds for me. hes a guru at that crap. myself i hate lol
    once it comes back to me, ill finshed up from the roof down, test it and video it in action
    once i can see evrything is good . i will get started on the snozzle

    I found your thread by accident, but I happen to be an airport firefighter for a living. I sent you a PM with my email address. I'd be happy to help you get any top detail shots you might need. Here's a picture of my truck at work. Hope this might help you out.

    Great job, Joe. I had to look at the model closely to tell whether or not it was real. First rate.

    That is some nice scratch building and a nice subject too
