Here are some shots of my LDD Fire Engine I finally had a chance to brick build. It is modeled after a real fire truck here in Wichita, KS.

That's a beautiful 8 wide fire truck.  You did a great job.

I love how the ladder folds down.  :thumbup:

Nice effect with the orange and white striping. How does it compare to a firefighter minifig next to it?

Now that is what I call a fire engine and the lights are perfect. Great job! I really like how you've used those ladders.

Its not to minifig scale by any means. Sacrifice I made to build a more realistic model.
Here is a link to a thread that shows some screenshots of my original design with a minifig.

Also after speaking with Ralph_S about the 6-wide model it was decided some major changes were needed

I love you engine its awseome!! The details are great and its very accurate to the real rig iin the picture. I can't wait to see your Quint truck. That squad truck is cool, here in so cal the sqauds are usually f-250s and dodge rams. Hope you decide to make the air unit equipment truck that would be cool...

Amazing. I especially like the use of the not so popular wheel wells. It seems like the smallest things really set the MOCs apart.

The front bumper is way too long... :)

Great scale, lots of neat details to appreciate in this. Of course, I'm bias for 8-wide :tongue:

I'd make the Squad Truck but I'm sure you'll make it eventually and blow away my attempt, looking forward to more of your stuff!
