    Magazine Review

    As seen in Truck Model World Magazine, U.K, May/June 2016 Edition, by Steven Downes. www.truckmodelworld.com

    In the last issue, I introduced Fire Replicas as a company producing true museum quality replicas of fire equipment and I now take a more detailed look at one of their first model releases, the Pierce Velocity pumper in the striking “Courage” E805 decoration from the Prince George’s County Fire/EMS Department. Just opening the box gives an impression of the quality and precision of the model, with custom packaging consisting of a fully lined base and clear Perspex cover protecting the model. A stainless steel etched plate fixed to the base features the department and truck name and department seal.

    The model itself can truly by considered a museum grade replica, cleverly constructed from 379 parts including quality resin, stainless steel, photo-etch, rubber and composite parts which are replicated to perfection, capturing every single facet of the original fire truck. The quality of the paint finish and graphics throughout are truly stunning, considering the tiny dimensions of the graphics. The model is affixed to the base and while it is possible to remove it by peeling back the bottom panel and removing the fixing screws, due to the fragile nature of the model, this should be avoided.

    Everywhere you look on the model; tiny details are observed, especially with the pump control panel which is fully decorated with all the various dials and controls. The upper rear body is populated with various colours of flattened hose reels which really look impressive while the opposite side of the body has an extension ladder complete with accurate scale rungs which really do look amazing. The body sides have simulated roller doors and even here; all the ridges are transposed onto the model with silver used to highlight the frames and handles. Above the pump housing is a water gun which has an exceptionally thin and realistic control handle

    Glimpses of the modelled interior are afforded by looking through the clear glazed windows where the driver and officer’s seating is clearly defined. The front grill is again expertly finished with graphics capturing every line and highlight from the full sized truck. Chrome parts are used to good effect with diamond plate texturing added for authenticity on all standing areas and all the light housings are finished with tinted and clear plastic lenses.

    Anyone who owns any of the TWH range of fire apparatus models will know how detailed and exacting those replicas were, and this new range of models from Fire Replicas go one step further with true to scale replication throughout. Because of this, the models are static in nature although this is no bad thing and the exacting finish keeps the collector looking again and again, each time spotting details they had missed the first time. The “Courage” E805 is truly a museum grade replica.


    Why Pink?
    The Courage E805 came about due to the tireless work of a group of dedicated and caring firefighters and medics who sold pink t-shirts for Breast Cancer Awareness. A vehicle wrapping company discussed a concept of wrapping a piece of apparatus and “Pinky” was born. The overwhelming response from the community resulted in the unit being at numerous awareness functions and events and the popularity resulted in the arrival of a second pink vehicle, a medic unit named “Hope”. While the pink units are front line trucks, their popularity resulted in a third joining the ranks. The new engine would be painted pink and a lavender stripe representing all cancers was added. After another social media campaign to name the unit, “Courage” was placed in service.

    About the Community, Department, and Truck

    Several years ago a group of dedicated and caring firefighter/medics organized an effort to sell pink t-shirts. They received permission from the Fire Chief to allow personnel to wear their pink t-shirts in lieu of their regular work uniform shirt during the month of October which is Breast Cancer Awareness Month. The effort was fully endorsed by the membership and hundreds of pink t-shirts were sold with profits distributed to breast cancer awareness and research groups.

    A business that “wraps” vehicles discussed this pink concept with a member of the Fire/EMS Department. The business owner had lost members of his family to breast cancer and said he would be honored to wrap an entire fire engine. Again, the Fire Chief fully endorsed the idea and within a few months the Prince George’s County Fire/EMS Department had its first pink piece of fire apparatus. The response from the community was overwhelming. The PGFD PINKY was requested at numerous awareness functions, walks and runs. The pink engine attracted the most people for photo ops than any other display. Lines would form to see the pink engine and have a picture taken while standing on the side board. It meant so much to so many people to be a part of this unique piece.

    As years went on the Department continued to sell a record number of pink tee shirts, we placed a pink medic unit, nicknamed “Hope” after a social media contest, in service providing much needed relief for Pinky. Remember, these pink units are front line pieces of apparatus that respond to fire and emergency medical calls every day. A high number of requests continued to be received and a third pink unit, an engine, was ordered. The new engine would be painted pink and a lavender stripe representing all cancers was added. After another social media campaign to name the unit, “Courage” was placed in service.

    None of this would have been possible without the enthusiastic support of the community and cancer awareness groups across the National Capital Region. The small group of firefighter/medics that sold t-shirts remained dedicated and a driving force in expanding our fleet of pink fire/EMS units and remain the pulse of the “Proud to Wear Pink” project. The small addition of a replica “Courage” will be a huge welcome addition. Community members, cancer awareness advocates and the Fire/EMS service in general will proudly display “Courage” as a part of our on-going campaign of cancer awareness and early detection.

    1. Prince George Pierce pumper.

      The Prince George Pierce Impel pumper is outstanding, the attention to detail is superior, Fire Replicas models are truly museum quality replicas. I can't wait for others coming this year like the Milwaukie Pierce pumpers & Rescue. on 3rd Mar 2017

    2. Top notch Fire truck

      The attention to detail is flawless. I love it. on 3rd Mar 2017

    3. A museum quality model but...

      Yes, this model is 100%dead on but, there are a few things that just don't hit it out of the park for me. I know using the resin medium is a little limiting but, opening doors, rolling tires, Ladders raising, and tilting cabs just may put this over the top. Plus, the availability to take the model off it's stand for some collectors would be great for the collector that needs the space. For me, there are a little pricey for a very static model that I can pose in the manner that I choose. Please don't get me wrong. These models are outstanding! Just a few minor things, to me, that just don't hit a home run. on 24th Feb 2017

    4. Pierce Prince George's "Courage" E805

      My first purchase from Fire Replicas was extremely gratifying. E805 was a superbly finished diecast model which replicated the original to the smallest details. The graphics were stunning. My only criticism, is that I have a display case for my other models, and the case from Fire Replicas, while providing a professional case does not allow for easy removal to display the model in other settings.

      I've already placed my second order....extremely satisfied collector.
      on 23rd Feb 2017

    5. Wow

      I received this truck after getting some others that were on the top of my list. This truck does have a lots of bells and whistle on it. I love the the cause it represents great choice Fire Replicas. The details are great. Can't wait for the next new trucks on 16th Feb 2017

    6. Engine 805 Scores a 10 out of 10

      Just like every other one of Fire Replica's releases, this model is stunning. The pink is accurate and really pops. As with all of their models, the casting and finishing is crisp and well done. The details such as the pump panel, roto-ray and ladder are spectacular. As I have mentioned multiple times - these are the best scale fire apparatus ever produced - well worth the money! I cannot wait for the Rosenbauer Miami-Dade units and the FDNY Seagrave TL's. on 7th Sep 2016

    7. Excellent!

      Fire Replicas has done it again, awesome detail and craftsmanship on this model. I was thrilled when I received it and it was well packaged, it even had a personal note from Nicholas thanking me for the purchase. Thank you to you Nicholas and also your dedicated team if it wasn't for you we wouldn't have these fine models in our collections. on 17th Jun 2016

    8. Excellent

      This is my First Truck, I mainly bought it because my wife had Breast Cancer, I said "mainly" cause she's been cancer free for two yrs. I am a dealer in diecast and I used to handle TWH, I like that your models come with their own display case, which is a big factor (also it didn't cost anymore compared to TWH price). The detail of your models is beyond Excellent. The graphics are sharp, paint is flawless. I also like the fact that you take the time to include a welcome note and other info with your models. That right there tells me that you take pride in your craft. The packing for shipping is beyond standards. on 12th Jun 2016

    9. Awesome!

      Love the detail on this piece! I plan on ordering another replica in the near future. You will not be disappointed! on 21st May 2016

    10. Beautiful Item

      Since I am a retired career firefighter with Prince Georges County Fire and EMS is was only fitting I purchase this "Pink" engine. It is in honor of my sister whom passed away from cancer! Proud and honored to have this engine in her memory and from my county and Local 1619. on 20th Apr 2016

    11. FANTASTIC

      This is my first model from Fire Replicas and the Prince Georges truck is quite an unusual color and will add to the diversity of my collection. It is clean and fantastic and well-detailed and protected in its own case shipped well. on 15th Feb 2016

    12. STUNNING!

      Bought this for my brother for Christmas. He has an extensive collection of diecast model fire engines that he's collected since childhood (he's now 75 years old). Few, if any, rival this piece in its beauty, uniqueness and attention to detail. Well worth the money just to see the expression on his face as he un-wrapped it. The whole family loved it! Even the display case was awesome. Can't say enough positive things about the Prince George's Engine! on 1st Jan 2016

    13. Incredible

      I bought this as a gift for a couple who are career firefighters in suburban DC.
      They absolutely love it. They have t real Pierces at work and this collectors edition is a benchmark for future collectors items.
      Thanks again Nic and Staff!
      on 22nd Dec 2015

    14. Finally!

      If you have any doubt about purchasing this model, you will not be disappointed one bit. The quality is outstanding, great attention to detail and superior customer service. This is the long-awaited company to fill in the empty space of fire apparatus diecast. on 19th Dec 2015

    15. Simply outstanding

      Absolutely amazing! It's the perfect gift and she loves it! I can't wait to purchase my next one on 18th Dec 2015

    16. this company could bring this hobby back to health

      I have been a firefighter in Western PA for many years and have a large collection of model firetrucks from Code 3 diamond plates, Franklin Mint, First Gear, Highway 61, Corgi, and Yat Ming, and when my wife bought me the Prince George Courage engine I was totally amazed. This truck has the finest detail I have ever seen. If it is on the truck it is there. The display case is very impressive and the truck is fabulous. This truck is the perfect gift for any firefighter. My Christmas came early, and this truck was a delight. If you like firetruck models try Fire Replicas and you will be pleased. This upscale truck is one of the very finest in my collection and will be a proud part of my display. I can't wait to get my Fairfax County truck which is in shipping now. Thank you Fire Replicas for a museum quality truck and keep the great works coming. Fantastic, terrific, amazing, outstanding, A+. on 16th Dec 2015
