One of the most famous tower ladder in New York. It's decided I go check on the spot if the true is conform to the reduced model
Something about a Seagrave! This truck is the one I look at the most in my collection. The stokes basket and many other equipment at awesome. The LED lights are awesome. I don't know how Fire Replicas puts such depth and detail in model. The Aerialscope is dead on detail. The cables and reels are perfect. I used to built model fire apparatus with some good detail, but Fire Replicas FDNY Tower Ladder 1 smokes anything I ever built. I hope to see it's stable mate, Engine 7.
Very well done, great detailing, clean lines.
The model of FDNY Ladder 1 is my 13th Fire Replica’s model and as with the previous 12 I have been amazed by the accuracy and detail that has been achieved on this model. It is outstanding and perfectly to scale.
A perfect illustration of the level of detail that Fire Replica’s aim to achieve with their models is shown well on this model. A look at the bottom of the side jack feet reveals traces of red paint, that would have been there when the real vehicle was originally delivered but has been gradually worn away during use. Now that is detail !!!
The Seagrave Aerialscope is an icon of the US fire service and this model represents it to perfection.
Another great and awesome job done by Fire Replicas. To sum it up the Model looks like a miniature version of the real rig. The details are amazing. Everything is there and nothing overlooked! Keep up the good work.
I received my Tower 1 today and the moment I opened the truck and took it out of the box it blew me away. No detail has been spared or missed. Everything has been faithfully recreated. I’m impressed with every new truck that comes out and am looking forward to ordering more! Well worth the money
This review is based on a long look I had at the pre-production prototype. I remember when Fire Replicas release their first FDNY Towers back in 2016. These were amazing models (and still are) they were well received and spectacular in every way. These Seagrave Aerialscopes are still among my favorites in my collection. I would have thought it would have been impossible to improve on them
But Fire Replicas have made significant improvements with the new batch of Seagrave Aerialscopes (this time FDNY 75’ units). These are amazing models with a level of craftsmanship that is better than the previous generation 95’ models. A summary of improvements:
• Flawless assembly fit and finish
• The roof mounted A/C units have cleaner assembly and better fit to the roof
• The basket is a major improvement:
o Better casting
o Perfect fit and finish
o Improved detail
o Thinner panels
• The ladder structure has crisper detail and improved fit
• Improved communication antennas
• The overall assembly is “tighter” in every way
• The overall casting is flawless which is why the fit and finish is so good.
• Parts count went from under 600 to nearly 800!
It is difficult to describe the overall improvement in fit and finish, but the overall model is simply crisp, clean, perfectly assembled and spectacular. Overall detail is also improved and you get extra equipment as well. Specific to Tower Ladder 1: Stokes basket, exhaust fan, igloo water cooler and accurate TL1 graphics.
