My latest MOC's - Firetrucks!!
Posted 17 December 2007 - 04:14 AM
Hi all! Here are my latest efforts, MOCing the Ladder Platform truck from 7945 and the Ladder Truck (7239) to a Frieghtliner Telesquirt, as used by the Country Fire Authority, or CFA, in Victoria, Australia. I would like to take this opportunity to thank PaulC and the_gamer for inspiring me for these mods. You can see their work here and here.
Anyway, first up, a front-on shot, showing I can transport a complete crew in each truck.
Next, a look at how I'm holding on the grille.
Finally, a look at the interior for the Ladder Platform.
As you can see, this was a simple MOC.
Next up, my MOC'd 7239. First up is a side shot, showing the longer hose, the skinnier column behind the door and a bit of the block work surrounding the cab.
Next up is a shot of the cab's interior.
You can see here that I've moved the front axle forwrd to accomodate the work.
Here we're having a look at the extra blocks used in the front of the cab.
I've added this plate along the bottom to help stiffen everything up and stop the flexing.
Here is a simple mod; changing the bricks from yellow to white. They give you one white technic brick to help hold the ladder up, I don't know why Lego simply didn't add another two white to the kit. Also the 1x2 plates holding the ladder up were changed from red to dark bluish grey.
I also found a use for that odd locker - it now holds a rescue chain!
Finally, one of our brave firefighter's checking the nozzle position!
Just for comparision, here's Frankston's Telesquirt in action at a factory fire.
All comments are welcome!
