This model, another crowning achievement for your company, is particularly precious to me because Eng. 71 was my "home guard" back in the '60's, operating with a 1923 Seagrave pumper. My, how she's changed!
Having toured the E-One plant in FL, I was really excited to receive E71 from Chicago Fire Dept. Fire Replicas really did an outstanding job on this piece. The attention to detail is amazing as are the colors and graphics. This is my eighth piece and Fire Replicas keep getting better.
Received my Chicago engine 71 E-one pumper. Once again the attention to detail is just outstanding. Fire Replicas captures every authentic aspect of the real rig, E-one cabs have a lot of fine lines and contoured bends to the nose of the cab and roof angles, this model replicates every feature of this E-one cab and chassis. Further features as to the paint and finish are 100% spot on accurate to the real rig, Chicago Fire Dept. stands out among other dept's being known for the color scheme of black over red and this model is an incredibly razor sharp replication in 1/50 scale. Fire Replicas has once again produced a true museum top shelf grade fire apparatus replica!!
What an extraordinary reproduction a new engine of Chicago even more detailed that comes to wonderfully complete the models on Spartan chassis
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. 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 use of etched trim looks great and on E71 you even get chrome hub covers, just like the actual unit. 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.
