  1. So far, so good. I didn't realize how beastly midmounts are until now 😂

    Nice map! Glad we could help!
  3. As you may have noticed in my latest rigs, I'm kinda slowly and unofficially moving towards a new color scheme of red and black. IMO they go together a lot better then my previous schemes. I might not make it department wide, idk. I had an idea that maybe only wildland apparatus or the rigs from the second battalion would have it.

      The red and black is a great looking colorsheme. Id make it dept wide. If your brush trucks or rigs from second battalion are in that scheme it might make it look like a totally different dept. In my fleet all rigs have the same colorsheme

      It does look really good. Nah, plenty of departments have different schemes for different battalions. Actually one of the main reasons I might not do it department wide is because I don't feel like changing it on all my rigs 😂

  4. Orders placed for a third FIREWALKER 😎

  5. I'm thinking of scrapping this rig for something else. Question is, Should it be an ESU for LCSD, ambulance for MERCY EMS, or rescue for MERCY EMS?

      I think you should make an ESU for LCSD or if you really want to build something for MERCY EMS build a Rescue.

      Yeah maybe I'll do a Pierce or Mack CF ESU. Too bad I can't afford some custom minifigs for it too 😂

  6. More decisions.... Saber rescue pumper, Enforcer RMA, or Enforcer TDA? The only thing that's stopping me from the tiller is that I like the Saber chassis and they don't make Saber tillers 😭

      Very good point! I'm kind of focusing on the suburban parts right now, since that's the part I have built in real bricks. I'll probably see how the tiller goes and if I don't like it go with the Saber. I eventually will need another truck though because I made a new truck company (Truck 4) but I don't have a rig for it, so right now the reserve ladder is in that position. Thank you for your input!

      Enforcer tiller quint. Need I say more? 🤪

      LOL no you don't 😂 If it works out the tiller will be a PUC too

  7. I'm starting to put orders in for a new engine... But I can't decide between an E-one Cyclone rescue engine, commercial cab pumper-tanker (similar to Engine 102), and Pierce Enforcer, Velocity, or (maybe)Quantum rescue engine. Anyone got opinions or ideas? It's going to be the first rig in a new station, Station 6, which serves a suburban area.

      If I build a Pierce it will be a Quantum most likely or maybe a velocity, but I'm leaning toward building the Seagrave Meanstick I posted and running it as quint or something. I also thought about a Spartan boomer or some kind or snorkel too, but I really like the way that meanstick looks.

      I’ve updated my E-ONE Cyclone/Typhoon since I first posted the old Squad 9 back in 2017. One of the biggest changes from that design is the addition of the tiles just behind the grille. Imma be real with you, getting those tiles connected were a big pain to figure out 🤟

    4. Joshua B

      Yeah I've seen the updated version but I kinda like the old one better is some ways. If I build an E-one it will probably be more like Squad 9 but with those tiles. Yeah that must of been a pain alright 😂 I think I see how you did it though

  8. Tried to send you a PM but it said your messenger is disabled? I'd appreciate if you could look into that a little more and send my a PM if you could.

  9. Soooooo I think I'm gonna restructure my department over the summer.  That will involve several rigs being rebuilt, a new color scheme, and possibly new call signs for some rigs. The new color scheme will ditch the old black undertone I had on my rigs before, replacing it with a yellow stripe with a black stripe higher up on the rig. So pretty much the scheme I had on Station 2's rigs and a few others (see Truck 2, Engine 2, Engine 5) with out the undertone.

    Engine 1, Squad 1, Rescue 1, Brush 2, Brush 202, Wildland 3, and HazMat 1 (which I have not posted yet) will will all get major revamps or rebuilds, and all of them will get updated a bit and changed to the new scheme.

    Just a Fun Little Poll

    I would vote for a Dodge Charger, but I guess that isn't an option... XD
  11. You knew that Sven created the Explorer design, right? Then why would you assume that the tail-lights are someone elses? even if they were Sven would have made it clear that they were.
  12. I think Sven would appreciate more credit then simply "from the very popular 5 wide Ford explorer design".
  13. Thanks for following me!!

  14. 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.

  15. 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.
