Hello everyone, I'd like to share with you the very first MOC I created after I've recently come out of my dark ages.
It's the model of a german fire engine that is used in almost every fire department in Germany. In reality, the vehicle is manned by 9 fire men, forming an autonomous tactical unit called a 'group'. And because I wanted my model to be very close to the real thing, I decided to make it 10 studs wide so that 3 minifigs can fit in side by side. Because of this, it grew slightly out of minifig scale (maybe I'll do an 8 wide version of it some time). I focused much on the interiour and the equipment that is carried by the vehicle, I guess there is quite some room for additional detailing on the outside.
You can check out more pictures on brickshelf. There you will also find some reference images as well as prove of the versatility of this excellent fire engine (apparently german fire fighters aren't the only ones who appreciate it...)
I hope you like the MOC, feel free to ask any questions and let me know what you think about it.
