  1. Last week
  2. Earlier
  3. Such a rubbish lego builder... Haven't touched a brick in ages. 😂 

  4. PVFD has purchased another rig! It is a 2019 Pierce Velocity TDA (Tractor Drawn Aerial), and is expected to be delivered before December. This has just been revealed by the department, even though the order must have been placed months ago. Further news and specs are expected to come in coming weeks.

    2019 Update

    I will look into a dark mode option, I think that is something that can be done rather easily. I will also ponder some ideas for holiday themes again in the near future. Thanks for the feedback!

    2019 Update

    I second the motion of a dark mode. Holiday themes like we had before are also nice.
  7. AFD is attempting to purchase rigs, but the current stock market drag has both AFD and PVFD struggling to come up with the funds. Officials of the two departments hope to have at least one new rig apiece before cold sets in for good. Both departments are looking to purchase heavy rescues and possibly another engine for AFD.

  8. Still waiting on parts for Engine 1. Hopefully I'll get them some time this century.

  9. About to create AFD Station 3. I'm thinking two engines and a heavy rescue, probably all Pierce Arrow's. If you guys have any tips for me, that would be appreciated!

    2019 Update

    Any chance for a native dark mode? I use a chrome extension but it REAAALLLYYY slows things down. Also anyway to view the gallery as a "collective?" In other words view all images uploaded chronologically, disregarding albums and sorting. Basically a much longer "NEW CREATIONS" section but like probably not on the homepage for practical/design reasons. Maybe a "see more" on the top right hand corner of that box.
  11. Just curious if there's anyone willing to touch up my decal design so I can print it?

      Sadly I don't have the time for doing it. Sorry Ed

  12. Really want to make some sort of special rig to designate as a parade/event piece, but not really sure what kind of rig I want to go with. Any suggestions?

  13. Updated Engine 6 will be posted soon; expect additional rigs in the coming months. 

  14. Decalling...

  15. Anyone have any ideas for a Ford Expedition design?

  16. HAPPY BIRTHDAY AMERICA

  17. Any interesting builds in progress?

  18. (Repost because something happened with the link) 

    Found this awesome build for the newer Ford Super Duty pickups. Unfortunately I think it's out of scale...

    2019 Update

    Hey folks, I hope this message finds you well. I've been using a more hands-off approach and letting this community sort of steer itself without much guidance lately and I'm happy to see that, overall, it seems to be working. In recent years, Facebook groups and social media has reduced the frequency of forum visits by users as a whole, and that is true here as well. That being said, I still strongly feel there is something to be said for a dedicated platform that keeps things shared and easily accessible all in one place for niche communities like ours. Despite the slumps, we maintain an active user base and so long as that is the case I will continue to support you guys. Which brings me to the point of this posting. It has been quite some time since the last site overhaul/ update, and I am seeking suggestions for anything you folks would like to see altered around here. The forum structure hasn't changed much, are there any forums you'd like to have added? Are there forums you think we should cut? How are the galleries serving you? How about clubs? Do you like the current site design or would you rather something else with different colors? Please share your feedback and wish list, though I can't promise I can make everyone happy, I will do my best to implement improvements to enhance the experience here as much as I can. Thanks guys, hope you find yourselves having a nice summer.
  21. When Stud.io 2.0 decides to accept your BL password but the BL site says it's the wrong password

      And then BL decides not to accept your wanted list over an unrecognized part that you're 99.9% sure you didn't use in your build

      It's Stud.io 2.0 BETA, it's still in a experimental/design phase, so there are still bugs that have to be dealt with.
      Maybe it would be more helpfull to report this to the Stud.io design team then venting it on here.

      I already did report it. 

  22. Absolutely terrible news out of NYC - both a detective and Deputy Chief of the NYPD committed suicide this week

      That's horrible.

  23. Finally have a tiller design that I'm happy with. Can't wait to show it.

  24. Why is MOCPages broken every 2.5 seconds

    An intro to Ed

    Hello everyone! My name is Ed O. I'm from New York, and have been building fire trucks since 2011 or 2012, but I didn't start posting it anywhere until 2014. Currently I have 4 departments. Three are in the planning stage and my main department is in the rebuild phase. I was an explorer for nearly 4 years, but am currently working on leaving the Explorer program and applying to the Department itself to become a firefighter. I've had my fair share of issues within the LFC. When I first started joining groups and sites in the LFC, I was eager to prove myself (something even I knew back then you can't do in real life because you'd get your *** kicked) and often started various arguments about a myriad of topics. So yeah, I was a bit of a keyboard warrior. However, I've matured a bit. I pride myself on building the most accurate and sturdiest rigs I possibly can. If something doesn't look like it should, or if I feel a rig is too flimsy, I will halt production to find out how to improve the design. I may miss a few things here and there when designing on LDD, but it's kind of odd - it's almost like a truck is exponentially more visible in real life and mistakes are much easier to see. I can't quite explain it. Through this blog, I hope to pass on knowledge, building techniques, and all sorts of things along to newer members. See you in the first blog?
  26. Thinking about using the "Clubs" feature to make a club/group as a pilot run since none have been started yet. Anyone want to join?
