Wow. I love the new photos. Your design work is phenomenal. This is a masterpiece of a wood toy fire truck and perfectly detailed!

Man, Peter, you have done it again! What a beautiful fire truck I really like the design. Will it become available for us in the near future?

It looks kinda like a U.S. air force flight line fire truck. (air force 1966 - 1970).

Thanks for showing it.

Hi Peter
This Fire Truck is fabulous. What are the wheel sizes and will this be the start of a new fire truck series?

Front wheels 2-1/4", rear 2"
The chassis is 3/4" from the rear of the cab so the deck is lower where the ladder is. The hose reels are 40mm dowel.
As for a new fire truck series, this was a trial and error on my part but rattling a few ideas around for another trial and error build on the Peter-B chassis
