After being inspired by this firetruck made by Toomuchdew, i decided to make my own version of it:

This is really an excellent fire engine, and how I picture classic-style engines.  I love the old red spoked rims and the chrome front, something that you don't see every day.

Very nice MOC!  :thumbup:

Amazing MOC Captain green hair! :wub:  
It reminds me of one of these old slapstick silent films where people were running and it was a complete chaos. :grin:
The front of the car is really genious! :thumbup:

Beautiful! It really has that old feel with the chrome, wooden ladders and shiny steel helmets. :thumbup:

If LEGO decided to make a set where Indy was trapped in a tall building at Barnett College, these guys would come save him.

*whispers to Sinner* Was that a subtle enough way to re-ask your question about fleshies without seeming obvious? :pir_laugh2:

YES! That's it exactly! It just needs one more fireman, hanging on with one hand as his legs wave behind him, or maybe dangling off the extended ladder out in mid-air!

Shadows is looking for stalkers. Yep, you heard me right. CLICKY!

That was also the first picture i had in my mind when i had first seen it, including parts and equipment falling down from the truck while speeding up (or at least trying to speed up.It's the 30's you see...) :laugh:

My first reaction, when I saw the pic, WOW...... That's almost a real thing. That's a quality piece of a moc you made there. Have you instructions, so we can make one too?

And now I finally got the time to comment on this great fire truck. It is just incredible for its scale, and I especially like the way you have made the ladder and used old-style wheels that fit so well.

First ships, then trains and now trucks? You seem to master quite a lot of techniques. Keep it up Cap'n :thumbup:

Honestly, this is one of my favorite MOCs ever. It's very classy and mixes techniques to have a really unique look to it. Excellent work Captain Green Hair.
