This FDNY Tower Ladder 119, a 95' Aerialscope II on an Attacker chassis is a museum grade replica. Like all Fire Replicas models, every detail is modeled to perfection and with razor sharp precision. The replica features the specific department configuration and graphics, leaving no detail overlooked. The display case is custom manufactured with high quality acrylic and resin. The stainless steel etched plate features the department and truck name, and department seal. This replica is a treasure to be displayed and admired and is in no way a toy.

The new Seagrave Attacker chassis with 95’ Aerialscope II is, in my opinion, the best and most realistic replica so far produced by Fire Replicas. It is packed with detail and realism to a level seldom seen in a replica, using a multitude of materials and workmanship to make every millimetre of the model exude quality.
Fixed to the custom base with engraved nameplate, the model features exacting placement of the smallest of details, like the roof of the cabin which has aerials, air conditioning units, floodlights and both red and clear flashers. The front grill is photo-etched with a raised Seagrave logo and diamond plate textured surfaces. The sides of the body have separately applied door handles and a number of tiny graphics, all hand applied to perfection. Towards the rear, access steps are integrated into the body design with textured surfaces and grab handles leading to the bucket which has an authentic textured floor with plumbing for electrical and water supplies leading to the water spray nozzle. Even here, the attention to the smallest of details is evident with every tiny detail picked out to perfection.
The overall finish of the model is superb, with silver pin lines and the yellow and white striping really looking the part. All warning labels have been replicated with tinted plastic lenses fitted to all the light housings. As with the other models in the series, the cabin is replicated within, with glimpses of the interior possible through the clear glazing, showing the driver’s station with steering wheel and raised surround. The model carries the 119 designation, based at the Hooper Street station in Brooklyn, along with engine 211.
This is not a toy and not suitable for children under the age of 14. This highly detailed scale model contains small, intricate pieces that may present a choking hazard.
As a European collector, buying an American Firetruck with such amazing details was a must-have! I am totally amazed by all the small pieces that make of this model a real masterpiece! Unknown on 14th Jan 2017
It is now one of my very best die cast fire models in my collection.
If i lived in the usa i would buy more of this companies models but the exchange rate /post adds to the price.
Very please i ordered this one off. The case /base is a plus too. Now that they are making the older fire trucks i may pay the extra to get one in future. Happy new year for 2017 to all. Unknown on 5th Jan 2017
I have many replicas and the fact that there are no operating parts on this replica brings down its rating. for the money it's not worth it. Code 3 made much better replicas that have moving parts and more detailed for less money. Simple details like the Stokes basket, water jug and tools not present. I also work at the house with L119 Joseph Palmieri on 9th Dec 2016
This model is awesome, great details, fantastic look and attention to details.
Other models look like toys, it is a museum quality piece.
It is a great addition to my collection of fire trucks and one that you can look at for a long time.
Great job. Jeff on 2nd Dec 2016
my son works on TL119, and he was quite impressed with the level of detail. I picked this up for him to add to the FDNY 150 truck, and also for myself. Your products are amazing. Great work !!! Jack on 28th Oct 2016
Amazing detail from the eight antennas, to the miniature chain at the turntable pedestal. There is no photo that can compare to actually seeing this miniature model in person. The photo etching is unbelievable. I'm glad I bought FDNY Tower Ladder 119. It looks great next to Miami Dade's Engine 7 Pierce. Jim Gurley on 26th Oct 2016
The pictures do not do this model any justice. The color and the graphics are spot on and the detail is incredible. It makes any model made by previous manufacturers look like nothing more than a toy. The care that is taken in packaging it for shipping along with the hand written note that accompanies it all show the pride that Fire Replicas has in their products and the appreciation they have for their customers. If you're an FDNY fan, get this one before it sells out. You won't regret it. Mike U. on 12th Oct 2016
FROM THE ADVERTISING, I WAS EXPECTING A FINE PRODUCT, BUT UPON OPENING THE BOX IT ARRIVED IN, I WAS AWED. THE DETAIL WAS AMAZING AND FAR MORE THEN I HAD HOPED FOR. CHECKING WITH MY PHOTOS ITS LIKE SOMEONE HAD TAKEN THE ACTUAL RIG AND REDUCED TO 1/50TH SIZE. RIGHT FROM THE OPENING OF THE HUGE BOX, I WAS IMPRESSED WITH THE PACKING. A LOT OF CONSIDERATION WENT INTO THE PACKING FOR SHIPPING. I HAVE BEEN COLLECTING FOR OVER 55 YEARS AND THIS IS ONE OF THE BEST MODELS IN MY COLLECTION. I AM PROUD TO OWN IT. I WILL BE WATCHING CLOSELY FOR FUTURE RELEASES. RICHARD J SIKORA on 12th Oct 2016
FDNY TL119 and her other FDNY Seagrave Fire Replica sisters (TL9 and TL58) were the most anticipated models I have ever ordered. The reality of receiving them was even better than any of my expectations. The models are absolutely stunning in every way. Specifically for this model: the colors are an exact match to FDNY red and the graphics are spot on. The overall fit and finish is excellent. The use of photo etch (particularly on the roof mounted AC units) is realistic and spectacular. The diamond plate is true to scale and looks absolutely right. The plumbing and ladders for the tower are awesome and the detail inside of the bucket are accurate and crisply defined. The tire/wheel combination are faithfully modeled. This model is well worth the price and you even receive a fantastic professional-grade acrylic case with an etched nameplate. This model is a Grand Slam and I would rate it 100 out of 100!
