    Beautiful ladder

    Posted by Thomas Dittmer on 29th Jun 2020

    I have the now sold out ladder 23 in my collection. Ladder 27 is the same. It is a beautiful Detroit ladder with a very attractive paint scheme. The black stripes do look very good on a red painted body. So does the yellow lettering. The very detailed metal ladder painted in gray is also not very often to see but very attractive too. This Fire Replicas Detroit ladder is a favorite in my growing FR collection.

    Ladder 27 is a incredible replica. The graphics are sharp, crisp and clear. The details such as grab handles, windshield wipers, and ground ladders (to name only a few) are, according to my calibrated eye

    As with any FR this product is accurate down to the smallest possible detail. Still finding new details on the model even after looking at the model carefully to find aspects of it. After seeing the real rig in Indianapolis in 2018 at the FDIC show it is great to have a replica version that matches the real rig perfectly.

    Once again Fire Replica’s excel. Detroit Ladder 27 is an amazing model. Although a basic red/grey colour scheme the yellow and black graphics really do make this model stand out as something special and eye catching. Having seen the actual DFD Ladder 27 at FDIC in Indianapolis in 2018 I can say that this model is spot on. Well worth adding to my growing FR collection.
