At first Hi All (as this is my first review and only second post)!
This model has been issued in 1985 to support existing Fire Watch sets in Lego Town. With long ladder is really helpful in coming back with help to minifigures catched on upper levels of buildings. My fourth model, so some parts was lost in other Lego sets (I tried to replace them with parts I found under hand). Still it is one of the best cars I have in my collection and as I remember with brother we had great fun with this light and sound model (this one and 6450 Mobile Police Truck).
Number - 6480
Name – Hook and Ladder Truck
Theme – Classic Town; Subtheme – Fire Watch
Year – 1985
Minifigs – 1
Pieces – I found 107 in my set, via lego.wikia.com is 118 parts (still it looks nearly the same with different parts)
Price – US $23.00 also from lego.wikia.com, probably I had a prize in Deutsche Mark but it was lost
So it is time for parts or what left from them:
At first, white parts and brave firefighter named by me Strażak (in Polish its means firefighter). There are many great accesories (or at least I saw them great when I was 20 years younger). Axe, broom, shovel, walkie talkie and some other grey parts which I changed to fire extinguishers. Long grey ladder and also long enough fire hose (forget its on photo with red parts) to help citizens of Lego Town when fire catch them. There is also big white element to hide R9 battery - hope it still work, jet I cannot check it as I can't found such battery in home.
At second - black parts, mainly forms solid basis for six wheel fire truck and some for small trailer.
At last, red parts - at least they need some cleaing in water.
Btw, I changed whole instruction into .pdf.
Fire Truck ready to go to keep fire at bay.
If I found some energy I try to add some more pictures from this set in action.
P.S. There is something to do this review better, if someone found mistakes please send suggestion. I would correct them.
