    As good as this model is, which is tremendously so, Fire Replicas also deserves enormous credit for standing behind their products post-sale. The Fire Replicas staff was enormously helpful post-sale in helping me understand their packaging and security technology that protects the model. Exceptional products combined with exceptional customer service is a can't-miss proposition!

    Another great model from Fire Replicas. All of their models are fantastic but this one is up at the top. The only improvements would be to have Gage, DeSoto, Captain Stanly, Lopez, Chet and Stoker on the truck.
