Wow JD. That looks fabulous and so UK too and your welcome for the post anytime I get something like that from one of our sponsors I’ll post it for you guys.

Mike post it if you get it.

Guys we’re going to be at 100 pages before you know it. I can’t believe it and it’s all because you kept it alive and more keep posting.

Ok Ted, I’ll give you a free pass! I thought you got those eyes fixed up? Or just one right now.

🤓I had the left eye done twice'.. two weeks after the first procedure, there were micrscopic cataract particels that had to be removed, required another procedure.  SInce then the Retina is swollen, and I'm on all kinds of drops.  I go to eye clinich once a week.  Have to wait for the right to be done after the left is all healed up.. another few months... I'm told... [in the words of Jack Nicholson"] Never a F$$$ING Break"...🤬

You folks have inspired me with your fire apparatus.  Unfortunately, I don't have the space for that nice Chicago example.  But I did see a small fire truck in CVS recently and so picked it up.  Lately, their models have been 1:34 or so.  Because this one looked so much smaller, I took a chance on it.  It's by Junye Toys Ltd, China.  It reminds me of what we call forest trucks around here -- compact fire trucks that are good for navigating through New England woods.

Here's Jed, the brakeman -- an Artista figure -- for size comparison.  Jed tends to be on the slim/small size compared to most of their figures:

The cab is metal but the truck body is plastic with metal details inserted into it.  The hose spins.  I've found photos of this cab with a ladder body attached instead.

Can someone help date or guess what year/make/model this is supposed to represent?  Thanks!

Because it's plastic and maybe not prototypical, I may use this as my first weathering attempt.

I got interrupted by a phone call ... here's my next fire apparatus offering.  Again, from CVS a few years' back.  It's a 2013 Ford F-150 SVT SuperCrew Raptor.  I have yet to paint the mirrors and am debating whether to use silver paint or my new silver Sharpie marker.  There's great detailing on this Kinsmart truck.  The bottom says 1/46.  This photo shows the Raptor with a Priesner figure (1/43).  He's a conductor but could pass for a fireman in my opinion.

Great graphics!  With opening doors and tailgate.

Joel, fabulous work on the Triumph Herald! Sure looks like a top of the line shop paint job and to pay the extra to have the engine done! WOW!

Cor, The tractor sure is looking good. Reminds me of the days back in the corps! If your not going to be putting it all on a train I would l thing you should be fine with the length. But then again I haven't built any like you and Lee! Also outstanding job on the Ford flatbed!

Tom, good looking fire engine and truck! I am thinking you have been bitten by the Fire apparatus bug! LOL

Lee, nothing to post.

I hope everyone has or had a great Easter Sunday!

Thanks Mike, appreciate the positive comments.  Cor, the paint job on the truck looks very good. A well done job. Tom, I’m liking your fire apparatus, the Ford is way too modern for my layout, but it looks good. The China fire truck is screaming work on me. It looks kind of cool but needs a once over.

I've got a fire truck in the works myself, should be ready to post within a few days. I’m blaming Mike for giving me the fire truck bug!

Happy Easter everyone'..🐰 Nice work being shown on the thread'.. Here is a tip I learned from Lee Dremel, the original poster of this thread'.. 0000 STeel Wool, used to buff out the metal on the Corgi's and the Dinky's.  After being paint stripped and a soap and water bath. You can see the difference after steel wool buffing and just stripped and washed..  Really makes a very big difference, when applying your undercoating'...

Joel, I am glad to hear you have a fire truck in the works and you can blame me all you wish. But just so were being honest here I would have to put the blame really on You, Ted, and Lee the starter of this thread for getting me in to trying a restore and I wanted to try something I hadn't seen yet! So let me help you  out here a little!

Guilty at corruption!

Joel        Ted       Lee

I want you all to know I forgive you all! LOL

Ted I missed that tip. Thank you so much for sharing that again! Really makes a difference!

Yes indeed Mike, we are guilty as charged'... But really, Lee is the main culprit, as he started this entire thing with his truck building.  Then Joel came along with his restores! And I had no choice but to jump on the bandwagon.  I found the restores to be enticing, and  no way out. And finally you joined in, making it a gang of four... and now I see some new additions of fire apparatus  by members, making you just as guilty...........😁

Thanks Ted, but I have one thing that none of you have claimed as of yet which will let me off the hook of any guilt before and after this. I claim Mental Instability (lack of stability; the state of being unstable.) There for not knowing what I was getting into! LOL But between just you and I, I truly enjoy what goes on here!

I know Mike I got to get back on the bench

Yes Ted the polishingdoes make quite a difference. Looks like those two are coming along. Were you able to find tires for the T-bird?

Ha Mike, Too funny, looks like a wanted poster! The Three Amigos!

No Joel, I couldn't find any.  So I restored them'.. you'll see what I mean when I post it finished up.. It's ready for the undercoating  shop.  The Bird also had a motor in it.  I didn't remove it, and the stipper melted it... I have no replacement'... but an open bonnet and no motor...😁

Looks like the Apple Dumpling gang to me

Ha, you guys are killing me! Am actually laughing to myself! Ted it sounds like you really have your hands full with that ‘bird. Flat tires, melted motor, geez!

sounds like a real challenge.

joel

It is a challenge Joel, but I think that's part of misstick that makes these restores intriguing and such fun.. I think the bird will be a real stunner when finished....
