Reply to "Automobiles/ Trucks 1/43-1/50 scale let’s see them"

Dave,

Great model and great photograph of the prototype.  As I'm new to fire trucks, can you tell me the name of the manufacturer of the 1:1 version?  That's a sharp-looking front end and open canopy style but I can't read the logo.

Thanks and looking forward to your upcoming modifications.

The 1:1 is a 1956 American LaFrance 700 Series engine. The truck is special to me as it's the one I my dad drove when I was growing up. It was replaced in 1972 with a new American LaFrance Dominion engine, that was painted Chrome Yellow - dubbed the 'Yellowbird' as Lafrance's logo at the time was an eagle.
