    Does Chicago Proud

    Posted by Bob Vaccaro on 26th Jul 2017

    Received my 5th model from Fire Replicas. It matches all of the previous models as far as quality is concerned. Fire Replicas is finally a company that gets it right for fire truck model collecting enthusiasts. The Chicago Spartan engine is perfect and contains every little detail that a real Chicago engine has.

    Beautiful rig. BUT the display case is too large. Takes up too much room on shelf. I'm running out of shelf space.

    Chicago E-117

    Posted by mark & maureen kaminski on 23rd Jul 2017

    Man I am so very impressed with this model. Another awesome! replica of a beautiful rig from the second largest fire dept. in the USA Chicago Fire Dept!! Chicago has the distinct color scheme of black over red and you know its the CFD. Great dept. Fire Replicas has once again pulled out all the stops on this replica, the detail to the rig shows perfection to the cab from the front fascia with the headlight bezels, grill, windshield, steal front bumper with the preconnected hose atop, color scheme & badgeing, to the body, hose bed and tailboard just incredible. The CFD engine 117 Spartan Crimson is truly replicated to a museum 1/50 scale life like replica with outstanding diecast quality. This one model itself takes front stage in my collection, beautiful piece. Thank you again Fire Replicas keep em coming! looking forward to future replicas that are planned.
