    A CFD Truck Company Workhorse

    Posted by Chief Michael L. Kuk on 2nd Oct 2021

    It goes without saying the Fire Replicas has once again produced a very authentic "Wooden Stick" aerial ladder for the serious collector. The remarkable detail is everywhere, and one never tires of seeing the rig over and over again in one's collection. Don't miss out on another authentic model of the CFD. The real rigs got the job done, and they are definitely a treasured part of the long history of the CFD's unique apparatus fleet.

    1954 FWD 85' tractor and aerial

    Posted by Raymond J. Paszkiewicz, Jr. on 13th Aug 2021

    I purchased this truck on the first go-around over a year ago. It was my first Fire Replicas piece, as I had just found out about FR models. It was the smartest thing I could have done. This is the most magnificent model fire truck that exists.

    CFD 1954 FWD TDA

    Posted by Jim Donnelly on 24th Mar 2020

    Fabulous model, like all Fire Replicas miniatures, an absolutely exquisite re-creation of the real thing, The company staff is very friendly and exceptionally knowledgeable. Next, give us a Mack C85 (ideally FDNY E236, which protected my neighborhood in the East New York section of Brooklyn) and an LA City or LA County Crown Firecoach.
