    A real piece of CFD History

    Posted by Russ on 30th Jul 2017

    Excellent reproduction of the 'Historic' Squads. The workmanship is exquisite. My memory as a very young school boy in the early 1960's was Squad 9 located on the Southside of Chicago at Engine 116's quarters located then at 5259 S. Wood St., these Squads company reproductions bring back the days of my childhood. Unfortunately I missed out on the purchase of the Squad 9 model when offered, but this model serves well. Keep up the GREAT work Fire Replicas!

    Absolutely beautiful replica!! The attention to detail is great! I wish I was much smaller so I could ride on this thing! LOL!! I have mine sitting on a shelf along with a photo of the actual rig. Excellent and high quality workmanship! Keep up the great work!
    P.S. A Chicago FWD tillered wooden aerial replica would be phenomenal!!

    A Chicago gem in the history books.

    Posted by Bob Deibler on 30th Jun 2017

    I received the model as noted. On time, quality superb, with two exceptions. Now I'm getting picky.
    Some pictures show the "Stokes" basket attached, when I tried to do that with the tape straps, it fell off within one day.
    I will say, not a major issue.
    The (2) two extra deluge pipes had now where to go as there were no pre-drilled holes for them and (1) handle broke off. (I do know that these collector pieces are fragile.) I was able to attach the "Stokes" basket as shown in one of the photos by fabricating 2 "S" hook from a strand of # 16 electrical wire. It will work well.
    Again, a great product.
    I am proud to own one of your models and be able to speak with on the phone.
    keep up the good work.

    I received my CFD Squad 4 a few weeks ago, and was blown away with the craftsmanship and detail on this piece. From the way it was packaged to the handwritten thank you letter in the box, I was very impressed.
