Fire Replicas continues to produce Outstanding models !!!!!!!!!! Water Tower 3 is my latest acquisition from them and it does not disappoint !!!!!!!!! Totally Gorgeous and so beautifully detailed !!!!!!!!!!!! It doesn't get any better then this !!!!!!!! The only improvement that would be nice is if the tower could be elevated so it could be displayed in the elevated position but that one minor issue is in no way an excuse not to buy one of these beautiful models !!!!!!!! Thank You Fire Replicas !!!!!!! Please, Please give us more vintage fire apparatus...... The possibilities are endless !!!!!!!!!!!
the attention to detail is utterly amazing and spot on ... AGAIN! I didn't think it was possible, but each new model raises the bar that was previously as high as I thought it could go.
Fire Replicas left no detail overlooked in the creation of one of Chicago's most historic rigs. The actual rig is fully reproduced here, and it is a treasure for any CFD fan. This is money well invested, as the production of this model is very limited. Excellance is the watchword here!
When Fire Replica announced that they were going to produce a Chicago fire department Water Tower rig I was ecstatic. When I received the model I was flabbergasted! Never in my wildest dreams did I conceive that the final product Woods contain the minutia of precision detail that has been achieved in this museum quality creation of a model from the early 20th Century. Collectors who have not been fortunate enough to purchase this Limited edition offering have missed out on a once-in-a-lifetime product.
The model is perfect. I can appreciate the detail and attention paid to accuracy. Keep up the good work and bring on more VINTAGE models.
Excellent replica. Finest quality and great detail. I'm very happy with the item. A great addition to my collection.
Absolutely amazing. The attention to detail is remarkable. By far one of the best pieces Fire Replicas has done to date.
I have a fire truck model collection of more than 450 pieces. This Water Tower 3 from Fire Replicas is in the TOP 10 of my collection. The detail is beyond belief. I can’t stop admiring it. I certainly hope to see more vintage from these folks.
I love the apparatus of the old days as they were designed to fit the needs of the department that had them built. Would love to see some 40's thru 60's that were built by American, Pirsch, Young, Maxim, Oren Howe, Hahn, Crown, and others that no longer exist that were the mainstay of the Volunteer Fire Departments in this Country and not just relying on "Big City" apparatus
