Each individually designed, cast or fabricated part is hand-assembled using tweezers, glue-filled syringes, and a steady hand. Materials are chosen to replicate each feature accurately and include stainless steel, high-def resin, brass, wire, rubber and other composites.
A tribute to Bridgeport on Chicago's South Side.
From the secondary hose tray on the rear to the stenciled pump can on the officer side, Engine 28's replica is built to the exact specifications of Bridgeport's engine. Our goal with each release is that our customers may notice something new each time they view the model.

This review is based on a long look I had at the pre-production prototype. I may sound like a broken record, but Fire Replicas has another winner here. To help fill out the Chicago FD collection, here is a great model of the most recent pumpers added to the windy city – the E-One Cyclone II pumpers. I love the Chicago black over red paint scheme and Fire Replicas has executed it perfectly. The beautiful E-One grill complements the black over red scheme (especially with the neatly done gold striping). All markings are authentic and look great. We have the normal excellent fit and finish that we have come to expect from Fire Replicas. Especially well done is the pump panel, hose bed detail, ground ladders and water can. The front bumper markings and pre-plumbed hose look perfect as do the hard suction hoses. The rear of the truck is spectacular with high-viz markings and a well done secondary hose bed - all of these little details make the difference. The lighting package is perfect as well. This is a great model and is likely to sell out quickly. Remember the earlier Spartan engines from Fire Replicas sold out quickly and these may go even faster.
