    Here are a couple more views of one my RAM pickups. Credit of course to Michael P for the front and CC for the tow mirrors. It is a 2019 RAM 2500 12v Cummins 5.9l with a 6" lift on 37.5"s. Pretty much my dream truck It has blacked out headlights, taillights, and badging, and color matched bumpers and grille And a gooseneck hitch in the bed, along with a removable tool box.

    Looking back through some old pics, I realized how drastically better my pumps have become. Pumps used to be the worst part of every rig for me, I absolutely dreaded them because I was so bad at them. I may not be as good as guys like CC and Michael, but I'm now very comfortable building them, and have definitely improved. Below is a bit of comparison between one of my earliest pumps and one of my current ones. Of course, I could not have come this far if it hadn't been for techniques from @TheRealCC and @Michael P., and for @Sven encouraging me to try new things.

    Exactly 1 year ago today I joined Emergency Bricks. The day after I posted this piece of junk Although I still have a long way to go, I dare say I've come a long way. Huge thanks to @Michael P., @Sven, @Ed O, @Josh, @Rylie D, @Rescue 423, Peter B, and many others for all their help and encouragement. Later today I will post my most detailed rig yet, the new Squad 2, so stayed tuned!

    What do y'all think, 4x4 or 6x6 for a crash unit? It'll be my only crash unit so I'm debating between agility and tank size/more compartment space. Keep in mind there will also be a small RIV and a tandem axle pumper tanker stationed at the airport.

    Hey. So...A little change for my dept. I've decided to go for a volunteer dept. There isn't to many volunteer depts in the LFC. My depts name will stay the same as this volunteer dept will serve brick county. Brick Elum is the only town in the county but there are some uncorporated communities in the county. The fleet will start out with 4 engines, a ladder truck, a rescue, a tanker, 2 medics, reserve engine and a brush truck. The only units built so far is 2 engines which I've already showed and a ladder truck which will be rebuilt. Eventually when I have more fire apparatus added to the fleet in the future the dept will change to a career/volunteer dept. Ill give you guys a sneak peak of one of the planned rigs๐Ÿ˜‰

    Squad 2 is pictured here after a cliff rescue in the northwestern part of the department's coverage, near Lake Laramie. Tower 4 was able to lower the maneuverable Ascendant midmount aerial partway into the canyon to access the patient while Brush 4 and Wildland 4 assisted from the canyon floor. Few pictures were taken, since the trees and dense brush made visibility difficult.

    Hereโ€™s another pic of my city. Iโ€™ve since made some progress on the station and some houses too. Donโ€™t pay any attention to MonsterMax rolling through haha if you look to the lower right corner you might spot a couple of new rigs ๐Ÿ˜ฌ

    Anybody got ideas for the layout of a 5 bay station? Iโ€™m not liking my first try, especially the white windows. By the way it doesnโ€™t have to be built for a corner or anything, it can go pretty much anywhere.

    It finally dawned on me, while staring at a breathtaking landscape of the Rocky Mountains capped in snow, how to connect the SNOT compartments that @Michael P. (as well as several others) used on his rigs a couple years ago. Unfortunately this technique is too expensive for me to use on all my rigs, but it may or may not be used on one or two soon ๐Ÿ˜

    Hey guys, in case you were curious on how my Mini Brush Truck project is going here is a picture. In CAD it measures a bit bigger than your average golf cart. For power it will be electronically driven, and it will have two separate power systems. One for drive (48 volt) one for lighting and fun stuff (12V) This project will run me about 3-5 thousand USD...which is 5 thousand less than buying a pre-built, electric go kart or UTV...plus this one is more fun. I got inspired to design it after seeing Cherry Grove's Fire trucks (which are basically red golf carts with a 500 GPM pump strapped on the back lol). This project is also a future, multi year project, so don't expect any IRL pics for a few years lol. Oh yeah, and the wheels are just place holders.

    Here's a few progress pics of what I got done today in my city, enjoy! I started with moving the sidewalk of the Pet Shop onto a road baseplate, and then I started laying out some of my new road baseplates (I bought 3 packs which worked out pretty good with what I already had) and did as much of the sidewalks and curbs as I could before ordering parts, then put the townhouses and church back (they're about the only things that will stay), laid out some more road baseplates, and started on the fire station, and lastly, did some more work on the curbs and sidewalks and (sort of) finished the station. Honestly not crazy happy with it, I'll post some better pics soon and y'all can tell me what you think. It's lit with some third party lighting off amazon, and yes, that is a broken cable ๐Ÿ˜‚ the wires are pretty flimsy haha

    You guys seem interested, so here is my Go-Kart Brush Truck CAD Model. It is a little bigger than a Golf Cart. I have a High-school robotics background (My specialty was electronics and Code...I was the lead programmer my senior year) so I decided to give Go-Kart design a go.

    lol. I just uploaded the new station to Bricklink Wanted list... $280 USD and that was building everything in the cheapest version of bricks possible. I'll be a 40 year old before I have the income to build up my whole city lol. My plan now I guess is just finish the South District and make it super detailed (add better sidewalks, get better tables, get the rest of the road plates, add LED lights to all buildings and lampposts, actually finish my fire fleet, etc).

    So....School๐Ÿ˜ž. So for now on all my building will take place on Wednesdays and weekends. I have classes Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, and Friday from 8:45 to 3:05. After a long day of staring at a screen I'm tired and I'm not in the mood to build. So Mocs will be slow moving.

    Thoughts on this 2003 American La France tower ladder? Should I switch to a midmount or keep working on this version? Credit to Braun County DPS for the ALF front
