Great to see another model coming together! I have always loved fire trucks. Glad you chose one for this build.

Spent 8 1/2 hours working on the build today. I managed to get the front wheel wells all cut and glued into place as well as the large running boards and steps. I also got the front bench seat shaped and installed as well as the 2 rear seats. I started in on the front grill and front panel of the truck but didn't have enough time to get it completed so I guess that will be tomorrow's project. The wheel wells were a real pain in the butt as they ended up being assembled and glued together and then they were slid into place, almost like a puzzle piece. Had to be really careful to be accurate. Anyway, that's it for another day. More to come tomorrow.

Spent another 7 hours working on the build today. Managed to get the front bumper made and installed as well as the side panels and the roof of the cab. Also got the front panel of the cab installed with the dowel assembly from yesterday. Got the wheel well trim all cut and installed as well. Everything is all glued up and that's it for another week. Man, doesn't seem like much when you put it down in writing. Oh well, I had a good time anyway.

Far from done though. Still plenty more to do on this one. Thanks for the kind words.

I think it is somewhere in the area of around 28" long. (give or take) Sadly, because of its length, it doesn't qualify for the woodworking competition at the local fair this year.

Gotcha. That's a monster!
Sorry to hear about the fair, but I'm sure everyone here would default your creation to getting the "Intergalactic Blue Ribbon Winning Five Gold Star Award" and be done with it.

I'm new to the forum and woodworking, lurking around, but I have to say that this is the best thing I've seen in a while. I had no idea about the amount of time it takes to complete a project like that or even that people were event working on such projects. You are doing an amazing job and I can't wait to see more pictures.

Thanks for the kind words. I've done several of these and you can find them by searching out thread that are started by me if you are interested. They are a very time consuming but rewarding project to make. I really enjoy them.

Crap, he's getting irritated! Quick, someone fan the ego!

Kidding of course. The only thing more awesome than your builds is your humility about it. If I were capable of work like that I doubt I'd ever shut up about it...

It's just a hobby. There are plenty of people out there that would put my work to shame. I just do it because I enjoy it.



And for the record.........I don't get irritated...............I get revenge. LOL
