OKAY' Joel'... you did a heck of restoration job on this apparatus!!. Where did you find the new decals'.., they look great.  The jewel tail lights make the rear stand out'... Nice job'...We've accumulated quite a collection of fire engines on the thread'... Again to windy to spray paint today.  Another day behind schedule'... and my customers are up in arms'...👺

Thanks Mike and Lee for the kind words. Ted, found the decals on the bay, but they came from the U.K.  It was under $5.00 for them with shipping so I had to get them. Red Jewels from my wife’s craft room. She does a lot of card making and such. I don’t have anything else in the works right now.......have to go looking again.

Joel. Thanks we all here enjoy your post and I’m glad you have stopped here

Cor. Very nice pics and I’m glad you also started posting here from the old days at the 2 rail forum. Here every one can post from all forums. I really like those LJ Mack’s Don does a great job I’ve known Don for about 25 years now and I’ve had lots of good talks with him. Unfortunately the other day when I talked to him he said he’s slowing down on building custom trucks.

Lee, that "hook and ladder' looks familiar...I think the postman dropped one here too?  I paid Ted's price too, but couldn't get the free shipping...sharp truck for sure.  It's my first Corgi on the layout...i just have to figure where to put it?

Just got an order from DD...

Nice '53 beige Chevy pickup with opening doors and "baby moons".

Couple of street machines - '67 Z/28 and '68 Shelby K/R.

Pick of the litter is this 1950 Bullnose Kenworth tractor that was advertised for $15.00 off due to a bent front axle (it was severely bent on delivery) . I just pried one wheel off and straightened the axle with pliers and a vise and it's good as new. It also came with a nice plastic/lexan case. Now I need to find a trailer to go with it.

BC869201-F9F2-4F73-A42E-2E56A416FB76Richie nice Bullnose and a bit of History behind it. The owner of the real truck lived 20 minutes from my house. He and his Dad  ran identical trucks #1 and #4 Bob the son ran #4 both were parked after they both retired at Bobs house on Highway U. near my house I use to visit Bob amazing stories of trucking he would tell. He passed away in 2006. They were well known as the “Circus Fleet” here’s a pic from Bob’s Obituary that’s Bob and his dad I will post some I took at his house on one of my visits.

       👩🏽‍🚒                    Help Wanted          👨🏽‍🚒

O Gauge Volunteer Firemen'  Needed . Apply to Chief, Lee Drennen.  Due to the increase in fire apparatus donations, we now have four ladder Trucks and four brand new Pumpers, requiring new Firemen to man the equipment'... We are diverse, Atrista, Pizer, Woodland Scenics, Model U and all others welcome to apply'...🚒

It's really funny we have four ladders trucks.  Mine was actually on the vintage collectable thread.  I don't think he knew what he had.  I've seen them selling as much as $125.00 on the Corgi/Dinky pages.

A little chrome pen action will take care of any oxidation on yours... How did you disconnect the trailer from the tractor?  Mine does not come apart...👩🏽‍🚒

I'm considering putting the Corgi "hook and ladder" on North Main Street with the ladder extended up on an MTH large office building with a fireman on the ladder attempting to rescue an office worker in distress...we'll see.  The truck is brand new and in perfect condition...the seller I bought from did not pop-up in a direct search on the big auction site, but was displayed under the search results in a small square with a picture and short description...this often happens.  Seller mentioned having 10 of same item?
