Love the 1954 CFD Squad 3 that I recently purchased. I would love to see someone produce a twentieth century 85' Pitman Snorkel model on any chassis. The snorkel should be articulating. Models of apparatus from the past are very popular because they were easily identified. Modern apparatus' all look the same.
Quite pricey, but I justified it as being a necessity for what is probably a limited market piece. Vivid memories of the real thing racing down 12th street right beneath my office window. Its lines evoked a sense of speed. Maybe spent myself out of the market for anything else for a while. As to quality: Very Good but not anything better than some of my collection that I paid a lot less for. Now all they need to do FOR ME is a mid 50's Pirsch like the one Engine 44 had and a FWD pumper from the same era. Yes, I'll bend my purchase ceiling for these two also.
This model is outstanding in every way. I never thought I would see a model of a Autocar squad model. Squad 3 followed my Engine company[ 63] on many of our runs. They were
the busest in the city. Outstanding crew, very hard working firefighters.
The model is perfect . Every detail is true to scale. It became my favorite once I unpacked it.
Continue your fine work.
These squads are awesome. I've got three now. Can't wait to see more historic Autocar fire apparatus!
I love the CFD Squad 4 it is beautiful and true to the original fire apparatus. I love the classic black over red color scheme. Although the actual vehicle is before my time it is a classic and a much have for any collector of die-cast fire apparatus.
Top quality museum piece
More great models of this rig
Once again "Fire Replicas" has created a miniature scale model of the Chicago Fire Department's Autocar squads in precise detail. History is captured!
Great example of such historic apparatus.
