Assembly pictures of FDNY's 1980 American LaFrance Pumpers

Character, style and personalization epitomize the American LaFrance pumpers that served FDNY throughout the 1980's. Producing replicas of these beautiful rigs that are small enough to fit nicely on a shelf, has been a painstaking process. Over 18 months, each of the hundreds of intricately detailed parts are designed, cast or fabricated, painted, decorated, and trimmed...then organized in small bins, ready for assembly. There is no substitute for the laborious tasks that each of the 35 skilled men and women perform. It is a sight to see as each team member patiently adheres each part to another, consistently analyzing the end result. As you scroll down the assembly pictures, take notice of the parts on each workstation and you will gain a greater appreciation for the process. And don't forget to add these Classic FDNY pumpers to your collection.

    Wow! Just wow! I have been scrutinizing this model for over 2 weeks, looking for minor mistakes or deficiencies. I haven't found any. I'm a real fussbudget & I've got a good eye for detail, too. Your own builders & scrutineers must be top-notch.

    Nailed it! It’s been a long time since collectors have seen a small scale “accurate” American Lafrance, and its fantastic. Anxiously waiting for canopy cabs, midmounts and TDA’s

    2 or 3 stars just for the name... and the other for this mythical truck model symbol of the United States of the 80s - perfect reproduction.
