Hey all

I´m exited to introduce my second MOC here on Eurobricks. I am a true rookie when it comes to building with system bricks, as I've spent more time doing Technic stuff. I tried to make this MOC more realistic than the fire engines that Lego usually releases, and I´ve drawn inspiration from real Scania fire vehicles. Because i wanted to make this thing closer the real thing, I've spent some time at the local fire station, getting to know the real machines. I’m very grateful for comments, questions and suggestions for improvements. Hope you like it, and thanks for taking the time to watch the pictures.

Features

  • All doors and hatches can be opened/closed
  • Fully decorated and detailed interior in the cabin
  • Lots of different details that relates to the real deal. 
  • Room for 4 minifigs with accessories.
  • 558 parts (without the minifigs)

I am very grateful for your support over at Lego Ideas: https://ideas.lego.com/content/project/link/b991a9d2-2265-4ed9-afda-91b9cf0d7f28

The truck is 8 studs wide, 11 studs high and 17 studs long.

This MOC is actually fun to play with. Loaded with equipment, a water cannon and 4 minifigs the possibilities are many.

All doors can be opened.

The left side is for technical evacuation and rescuing of trapped persons. Here you'll find the hydraulic tools, power tools and life vests.

It thinks firefighters deserve appreciation. The salary is low, but still they risk their lives for everybody else. In the back of the truck you find pump controls and connection point for water hoses.

The right side of the truck contains tools for firefighting. Different nozzles, hoses and the Compressed Air Foam System (CAFS)

If I had a Scania sticker, I would have used it. For now this is proud product of Autoparts.

Roof.jpg

On the roof, you@ll find the water cannon, ladders, hoses, tools and of course the obligatory fire axe. 

Interior.jpg

Detalied interior with communication equipment, GPS, IR-camera, flashlights and binoculars. The setup matches real fire engines.

Thanks for watching :-)

I honestly don't think there is anything that needs improving. I've spent a good part of my childhood around fire engines and the level of detail takes me back to getting to sit in and be around, watching the hoses laid out along the ground to drain.

I've always loved anything Lego that was fire department related, but this is the first MOC I've seen that takes me back to my childhood.

Thank you so much. If I can bring out nice childhood memories, I think I've achieved my goal with this MOC :-)

That is quite simply a stunning MOC and looks amazing, any chance of producing some instructions and a parts list for it? Would love to be able to build it, it’s fantastic!!!

Thanks a lot :-) I have recreated the MOC digitally, and I will look into how I can make instructions. Its new territory for me, but I´ll explore it. I tried to submit the MOC to Lego Ideas, but it was rejected. They said it didn't meet their quality standards. So don't expect to much :-)

I like how smooth it is overall, def looks like a fancy city truck. It has a finished, official look.

Just a little too boxy for a good fire engine,

but other wise a good M.O.C.

Thanks for your comment. Fire engines look different around the world, but in Norway (where I live) they are actually a bit boxy :-)

Awesome.

(wink) there should however be a DAF sticker on the front :tongue:

Thanks! I would have preferred a Scania sticker, but I didn’t have any.

This looks very cool! Plus the presentation with the name tags and all the explanation is an immense plus for me (I sometimes think I'm the only one doing it!)
