This review is based on a long look I had at the pre-production prototypes of these models. The actual production units will be even better (though I am not sure how!). These Chicago Rosenbauer Squad sets have been highly requested by us and Fire Replicas did not disappoint. Squad 7 is brilliantly executed. Chicago O'Hare airport colors are replicated accurately. All decal markings are accurate and the paint finish is flawless. Emergency lighting, grab handles, compartment doors, antennas, mirrors and everything else is replicated brilliantly. Squad 7A has all of these features plus a spectacular snorkel apparatus including accurate water piping, oxygen supply, platform and monitor. The tire and wheel assemblies are faithfully reproduced and the assembly and fit are perfect. As always, I cannot say enough about these models. We, as collectors, are fortunate that Nicholas Neumann and Fire Replicas has personally resurrected this hobby. I hope we see more airport (specifically O'Hare) apparatus in the future.
