    MOC – Mobile Command Unit

    Happy new year everyone! Before Christmas I could finish my lastest project for my fictional Fire Department of the City of Farnheim. This huge new mobile command unit (MCU) replaces an old bus. These kind of trucks are common in cities with more than 400,000 residents here in Germany. Based on an regular truck chassis it has a typical boxed body that can be expanded at the passenger side to increase the room's space. Equipped with high end communication and radio features to handle huge incidents. I've build a five studs wide box to get the right scale for the expansion. The rest is classically 4wide. I attached most of the details to the roof, like an air condition, a few antennas, a satellite dish and a red flash light (that locates the command unit for others at scenes). Freshly arrived at the main fire station it got its first "very close inspection" by some of the firemen. Btw, I got the ideas mostly from here and here (German text version only). Hope you like it. Thanks for watching! Bright red regards, Maik aka Farnheim
  2. This is a small MOC built in a rainy day. More pictures could be seen here: P_20170609_182132_LL by Severus A, on Flickr P_20170609_181517_LL by Severus A, on Flickr P_20170609_181649_LL by Severus A, on Flickr P_20170609_181938 by Severus A, on Flickr
  3. Ladies and Gentlemen, several months have passed since my last posting here. Surely quite a long time. But I was pretty busy in real life. Fortunately I’ve found some time to finish several MOCs for my municipal fire department during the past months. Now I found the time to show you what has left the factory on my desk... Let’s start with a new MPV. It’s based on the short SUV-version as you can in the second pic and it’s mostly used for the daily routine. Generic build with nothing special. Based on longer 4 x 10 studs classical car chassis. One of the newer creations is a new truck for the rescue-divers unit. The truck itself features an airconditioned cabin for the divers to change their clothes, loaded fully with rescue and technical equipment – especially for the rescue on (iced up) waterways. The trailer features a speedboat with a rugged aluminum hull. I also redid my fire truck for heavy technical assistance on railways. I got the proportions much more right by shorten the lenghts about one stud. I redid the bogie underneath and changed the regular train wheels to these little 1/2 smooth technic bush for a more realistic look. Unfortunately it won’t fit on the lego tracks anymore. Well... but I am okay with it. Surely one of the most specialized apparatus is this telehandler. I had it on schedule for almost years. But didn’t manage how get all the significant details and of course the integrated playability into 4wide. Finally I decided to build the cabin segment in 5wide. Thankfully I a spent evening chatting with some friends on 1000steine I got the right influences concerning the telescope arm. I also created abunch of different tools for the handler: a forklift, a lifting platform, a shovel, a hook, a claw and such. The lastest creation is special foam unit. I’ve found an old photo on the internet of a fire truck to be on duty at an Esso oil refinery near Cologne, Germany during the first half of the 1980s. That caught my attention. I decided to build my own version of it. Added specials are definitely the two independent moveable turrets, snotted tank-segment with its hose ports. I also could finish two new trucks for Farnheim Airport Fire Services. The smaller one is a typically RIV (Rapid Intervention Vehicle) and other one is a massive Crash Tender, which was originally in service at the Stuttgart International Airport from the late 1980s till 2003. Both models feature the use of the actual 4 wide mudguards. In addition the bigger Crash Tender has a tilting cabin with a motor replica and a special, unusual tire-on-tire combination to get the typical monstrous appearance as the original. BTW: This year the Farnheim Fire Department is going to celebrate its 30th anniversary. Started as an classical 1/87th scale modelling. The years passed and the hobby rested for almost two decades. Since 2009, when getting in touch with Lego again, I restarted the Farnheim-themed modelling by using bricks instead of glue and paint. I invite you to visit my (german language only blog) to see more pictures of all these MOCs and the whole story of 30 years of Feuerwehr Farnheim Hope, you enjoyed the latest overview a bit. Thank you taking a look. I appraciate your critics and comments. Thanks in advance + Feurio! Farnheim

    [MOC] #legocity street racer

    how to build tutorial Thanks for watching!
  5. This model is inspired from 6691 set which was produced between 1981 - 1983. It was one of my favorites sets in childhood. There are many differences but I intended to keep the Classic Town spirit. I've added a working door on the right side, windows on sides, I've used nowadays elements like curved slope bricks for actual design and I also made the model a little smaller.

    [MOC] Airport Fire Crew 4wide

    I've built these vehicles to be used for the town airport. It is a small unit containing a water (or foam) cannon, a tank with ladder, tools and hose and a paramedic vehicle.

    MOC - Rescue Helicopter

    Hello community, after the refurbishments of the swap body trucks I could finish another project. It was one of these projects, you start very ambitious and stop immediately due to the lack of parts and/or solutions for building problems and such. The helicopter should have a modern and compact appearance, a color scheme that fits to my other rescue vehicle and some functional details. Now after being more a construction site than a MOC on my desk for months I gave it a second chance. And here it is... Hope y'all like it. C & C welcome as usual. Thanks for watching!
  9. Hi all, i want to introduce you a few new MOCs I did the last couple of weeks. First I gave the swap body trucks a make over. The old containers were (more classical) eight studs long, but some newer ones took the length of ten studs for more space. So the primers movers do for a better proportioned silhouette imho. Let's start with the pictures. The Farnheim fire department put two new heavy rigs for their emergency management (e.g. storms, dam failures, floodings etc.) into service. One of the twins is equipped with a crane. The other one has an explosion-proofed cab and it's able to pick up hazardous liquids and goods. This truck loaded up with a tank container by default. Another new truck is a little smaller, but it can be expand with a trailer. So the fire fighters are able to carry two required containers at once to the scene. And finally some pics of some rebuilt containers. Container tank for serious fires Container with two tanks full of foam Container with its whole equipment against hazardous scenarios on waterways. The red strips shell be oil barriers Hope you like them. Critics & comments are greatly appreciated. Thanks for watching.
  10. It has been five years ago since I had finished this hazmat truck. So I think, time for a make over. During the rebuild, the model got a longer wheelbase for more loading space, but tried to save the overall look. I had put on some new features like a more realistic hydraulic platform and a lamp post. This truck now features a lot of equipment for huge technical assistances and of course incidents with hazardous materials. It can also be alarmed by the municipal fire department in case of incidents thoughout the city area. In Europe, this treaty with municipal aid agencies is called TUIS. Which can be translated with Transport-, Incident- and assistance-System. Btw, the little red thing at the front end is a typical covered winch. Enough (in roughly English) said, let the photos speak... This is it. Hope you like this, too. Thanks for watching.
  11. Hello Community! It's been quite awhile since my last MOC. But I wasn't passive. In the meantime I've upgrated some of my models, especially the ones of my petroleum plant fire brigade "Jade Öl AG". So, let's start with a new special tanker equipped with a high reachable Turret, mobile water cannon and a heavy duty pump. It carries 7,000 liters of water and 3,000 liters of foam to the scene. You'll find a few more pics in the gallery on my blog. So, hope you like it. Comments and critics are welcome as usual. More MOCs to come. Regards!
  12. Hi everyone, this is my usual quarterly post here. ;-) Just kidding. Note to myself: Post more often on EB! Now to something completely different. I did a few new Mocs during the cold and dark december days. Let's start with something for my petrochemical refinery in my town: a dry powder fire truck with 6,000 kg of solid extinguishing agent in two huge tanks. The next one is also part of the petrochemical fire services. It's a huge tanker truck that brings 23,000 liters of foam to the scene. BTW, actual I'm not really happy with parts use of the ladder at the rear end. I have a few ideas, but the required parts are actual out of stock... As a feature it has a tiltable cabin. For those who wonder: the big pipe behind the cabin is part of a portable water/foam cannon. The third one replaces an old van used for technical assistances. This one features, beside an 4WD, a lot more space for equipment in the compartments. The volunteers of the municipal fire department features a special task force to light up scenes at night. Equipped with different floodlights, a power generator and portable lamp posts. The volunteers can be deployed all over the city and its surroundings. Another small truck of the logistics group And finally a small "Unimog"-look-alike truck that is now part of the FD's historical heritage. Built in the late 1960s (note the old paint scheme) to support the firemen in need of technical assistance, e.g. car accidents, incidents on and beside the water. The last point is the reason why it is equipped with wide sand tires. That makes the truck able to drive on loose terrain, like on sand, dunes or mud flat. Hope you like them a bit. Critics & comments are very welcome. Brit red regards!

    MOC: Fire Station

    As a request of lightningtiger I want to take the chance to show you a few pictures of my small fire station I built in 2011. It's a mixture of the 2009 official headquarter (#7945) with a few more realistic extras based on a classic baseplate. A little garage extension on the left side completes the look. As you can imagine, this station shall not be a headquarter, just a small institution placed in the suburbs. There are only an engine and a ladder for fire prevention. The engine is also equipped with apparatus for technical asstistance. The little car is for every day deliveries between the different fire stations. An old school oberhead projector I put some more more details on it like the exhaust gas hoses or a big foam nozzle There is room for two big trucks The small garage A neat little garden for recreation The fire apparatus And these are some of guys who are on duty. Well, the ballons are in german language only, 'cause they are part of a comic... Hope, you'll have fun watching these pictures. C&C very welcome! Best regards, Farnheim

    MOC: 4wide water rescue unit

    Hello all! The next one (of my 120+ firetrucks, containers and trailers ) I want to show you is a water rescue truck in combination with a boat on a trailer. This unit carries rescue divers and a lot specific equipment to the scene. The truck is highly recommend for rough and/or weak terrain. The boat (which features a solid aluminum hull) carries a powerful outboard motor and a lot of equipment for the first responders. It's quite basic-built, but features the typical bicolor paint scheme and the drive train as a little more detail under the car. Like every MOC of mine this truck also features some epuipment like the divers' suit, a respirator and a special platform to rescue people from thin ice. Finally a picture of the complete a water rescue squad that will be released when an incoming emergency call is indexed by the dispatchers with the word "water". It features from the right: incident command van, pumper (also equipped with stuff for the technical assistance, water rescue truck (divers truck), boat truck and a crane and a rescue van. Hope you like it. C&C are welcome as usual. Thanks in advance. Regards, Farnheim

    MOC: 4wide Dry Powder Appliance

    Hi all, another bright red vehicle I've built a while back is this fire engine that is part of my plant fire department (an oil refinery). It should be the fictitious brother of a Unimog. The exact description here in germany is TroLF 1500. Tro means "trocken" (dry) and LF "Löschfahrzeug" (appliance). The number reflects the agent in kilogramms. So the truck carries (like a real model) 1,500 kg of class B- and C-powder (effective against petroleum fires) in two tanks. You can can also find the pressuretanks for the powder with its "control panel", two hoses, and some small extinguishers. The red thing on the front end shall show a small covered winch. As an extra detail I put a 2x2 satellite dish on the roof that demontrates a roof hatch (that some orginal Unimogs have/had). Here's a little history of the TroLF 1500: This truck was built in the mid 90s of the last century and is going to reach the end of his term at the oil refinery. But this good old low tech is almost indestructable. So his next operational area could be a reagional air field next to the city of Farnheim. Its little fire brigade is highly interested in buying the truck. So, this is it once again. Hope you like it (a bit) . Any kind of comments and critics are welcome as usual. Cheers, Farnheim

    MOC: 4wide Turbo Extinguisher

    Hi all, another more or less unique apparatus is a so called Turbo Extinguisher. I got inspired by a huge fire in a city in my area last summer, when several fire departments from different cities were helping out to fight the flames. They were also supported by a plant fire brigade, that sent such a monster truck. The main extinguisher unit is a twin jet engine combined with big nozzles, that vaporises water into a massive spray reaching high and/or long distances. The effect is higly efficient. Well, here's my 4wide conversion of this monster. Don't be bothered by the paint scheme (with the slight part of white). I changed it a bit afterwards. So it fits better to the trucks of my plant fire brigade. The last two pics show the actual paint scheme. For a comparison and further details, you can have a closer look at the manufacturs website. As a sidenote: The FD of Hamburg once wanted to buy such a truck, cause of the high risk potential of the international sea port. But its costs couldn't ever be financed. Hope you like it. Thanks for watching. Farnheim
