  1. Think I should add chevrons to this or leave it? It looks pretty sharp already

      @Rylie D 45 counting EMS, marine, and PVFD, plus 5 police. Man I didn’t realize I had that many 😂

    3. Rylie D

      Rylie D

      Wow that's alot

    4. Joshua B

      Joshua B

      @Rylie D Haha yeah I didn't quite realize I had that many myself, I hadn't counted in a while

  3. Doing a little research on Columbus Fire Department has me absolutely digging their old ALF tillers.... I might just have to build one for Truck 1 now 😂

      @Rylie D I'm a sucker for tandem axle tillers 😂

  4. The guys at Columbus Fire Department Station 24 are in for a treat 😏

      @Rylie D Yep, a relative of mine is the Captain of Station 24

      Very cool. That's so nice.

      @Rylie D It's pretty cool all right! I've only been to one of their stations once when I was really little (no idea what station it was) though, since I live about 4 hours north in Michigan.

  5. Some day this will be Truck 2

      Looks good. Is it gonna have a bucket?

    2. Joshua B

      Joshua B

      Thanks @Rylie D! Yup, I just didn't bother doing the aerial device. All my aerials will be platforms now besides the tiller of course.

  6. The Spartan is taking shape!

      Wow. That's awesome. The front looks good. Have you decided what body you are going to do? I'd suggest the spartan S-180 pumper body

      Thanks a lot @Rylie D! I have it with the old top mount pump and body that was on the FXP pumper right now and I'm digging the look. I'm still deciding if I should leave the body as is or update it though.

      IMG_20200801_2215368_2.thumb.jpg.b9826e3e12b1c4994d82a42c3a9d4827.jpg

      That's a nice looking pumper too! I see it's from Cle Elum, have you seen it responding or anything yet?

    3. Rylie D

      Rylie D

      I don't live in cle elum but I'm building a house there. Havent seen it yet responding. 

  7. Should a bring back a Spartan? Maybe as Engine 4 (which is currently the last of my Pierce/Freightliner FXP's still in my fleet)? I'm also thinking of moving Engine 5 (the E-One Cyclone) to reserve status. Even though I built it only a few months a go, my style has really changed a lot and it's kinda outta place in my fleet. The reserve pumper I'm working on is turning out a lot better then I thought it would so I might switch it with the E-one.

    1. Rylie D

      Rylie D

      Defently do a Spartan. They look very cool.

    2. Joshua B

      Joshua B

      @Rylie D I do kinda like em. I might just throw a Spartan cab on the old FXP body and see how that turns out.

  8. Anybody else think this is a little too much? 😂

      @Rylie D I'm thinking center the scene light on the pump and ditch the air hose reels, that's how I have it on another rig and it looks great. Thing is though, there's a scene light just out of view on the front of the body...

    3. Rylie D

      Rylie D

      That seems like to many scene lights. Ditch the ones On top of the pump and keep the ones on the body. You want to light an area up, not blind people😅.

    4. Joshua B

      Joshua B

      @Rylie D LOL idk that's how I have it on another rig and I like it, I'll have to play with it and see though

      I have a kit with some lights but all my vehicles are to small to hold the battery box 😕. Yours looks good!

    3. Joshua B

      Joshua B

      @Rylie D Well tbh I didn't pay anything, it's all from parts I had on hand 😂 I'm guessing the rig would be somewhere in between $40-$60 though, and the lights for the cab alone costed almost $50 with shipping.

    4. Joshua B

      Joshua B

      @Rescue 423 I have 2 of these in the cab, the fit almost anywhere! https://lifelites.com/elite-jr-kit If I ever light the body I'll probably use Brickstuff because the wires are smaller, the actual LEDs and wires for LifeLites can be little bulky sometimes.

      Awesome. What year is it? I know its a pierce

      Thanks @Rylie D I'm not really sure yet, maybe a roughly 2010 Enforcer?

  11. Sneak peak at the new fleet of Type 3s 🤘IMG_20200727_1552357.thumb.jpg.7d18256bb4eab7748a2a6ff990d61389.jpg

  12. Algonquin Fire Department has broken ground today on the new Station 3! As the district around the station grows and the number of calls increase, the department is taking steps to match those needs with new apparatus and an improved building.

  13. Chevron time! I'm going all out with decals on this new rig, so keep an eye out for it!

      @Josh Lol I gotta lotta decaling to do... 2 more wildlands to decal like Wildland 3 (which is the first rig I decaled, with the American flag compartments), lettering for this new one, and a couple more smaller rigs. I just finished the chevrons on this one.

    3. Josh

      Josh

      Can't wait to see them!

    4. Joshua B

      Joshua B

      @Josh I'm getting closer! I've got so many rigs finished that I haven't posted I don't even know where to start 😂

  14. When that one LED just won't work.... 😤

      @Rylie D Well now I'm not sure I'm gonna tell 😜 Lol no not really... My brush trucks are too small and compact to properly fit lights into them without modifying pieces. Maybe someday I'll light try to light up one of them though.

    3. Josh

      Josh

      I know that feeling, thats why I switched to brickstuff LEDs.

      Also, these would fit in your larger brush truck (the flag one) pretty well (I have them):

      @Josh Well I don't know.... Right now I'm just looking to light up this latest rig, so probably nothing for that Type 3 atm. I'm thinking another LifeLites eLite Junior for the light bar, then use the set I have with the non-working LED for the headlights and maybe a visor light. Thanks for the suggestion though, cool vid too!

      Edit: I ordered another eLite Junior. Someday I'll try brickstuff, maybe for the body since I understand the wires are smaller, but for the simple stuff I'm doing right now LifeLites works 😉
