Remarkably detailed model! Even down to the small antenna's on the roof! Looking forward to more great replicas.
This is the first replica I have purchased and it is well made and great quality
Very good detail. Lightweight, nice case. Packed very well and one thing I noticed that is awesome is it has arrows pointing in the direction of left or right like the real rig
Another great model. This is the second one I have purchased. I wish I had more money to buy others because each one is magnificent. I am holding out for a fire boat! C'mon guys replicate a boat!!!!
Great detail work on this rig.
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.
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.
I have just about every Fire Replicas release to date...and this one is the best. The details are incredibly sharp.
