    Astounding efforts by Fire Replicas yield amazing miniatures!

    Posted by Lawrence Orr on 12th Jan 2017

    Thanks to Nicolas Nauman and the Fire Replicas team, miniature fire apparatus collectors once again can rejoice that classic apparatus have been created with the highest possible level of fidelity. Understanding these models were created from mathematical algorithms utilizing many photographs taken from different angles due to the lack of any blueprints or surviving original squads, takes appreciation for the genesis of these trucks to an unprecedented level. That the initial releases sold out in very short order is hardly surprising.

    If you hesitated and did not acquire the first versions, do not delay pre-ordering one or both of the announced second releases, so you can own a masterpiece of fire history in scale. It has been many years since collectors had this kind of opportunity to influence the future production of classic fire apparatus. Purchasing the Chicago squads casts a vote for Fire Replicas to pursue production of more historic and iconic fire equipment reproduced in incredible detail.

    Fantastic replica of a unique type of fire apparatus that is so much a part of the history of the CFD. The details and paint and lettering are first-class. The models look like they should be out on the street fighting a fire. I would highly encourage adding these models to your collection if you are a Chicago Fire Department Enthusiast

    Fantastic trucks

    Posted by Joe O on 22nd Dec 2016

    I was so excited when I heard the Chicago squads were being produced, growing up around them and riding in one of them a long time ago, I remember the work horses they were. The models are dead on to what the trucks looked like. The details of the grill, bumper bell and mars 888 is fantastic. I hope we can see another model from this era. Great job Fire Replicas.
