I like your product. I have only bought 2 so far but plan to keep buying when the extra money is there. But my only gripe is your packaging. In this day and age do you really need to use styrofoam peanuts. There messy and very bad for the environment. I know that there is other means of packaging material that can be used to secure your product. Please have your shipping personal look into this.
Dan, thanks for your kind words and recommendation. We'll look into it, but are currently unaware of any affordable packing alternatives that will offer the compression damage protection needed for the display case. Thanks! FR.
Another beautiful artwork for my collection
Nice tower ladder 33
This model looks so realistic. The detail was amazing. Fire Replicas is just the best in the business. Worth every penny. Highly recommend.
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 33: Stokes basket on cab roof, exhaust fan, big “33” on grill, safety cone and igloo water cooler. These details really add to the overall appearance of these models.
