    This is by far the best replica of Engine 51 ever made. It is well worth the price. I just hope they don't flood the market with more.

    There’s really not much to say about this one. It’s superb! What a surprise a few weeks ago when we got word it was on the release schedule. It is an absolute exact miniature replica. Another Grand Slam for Fire Replicas!
