Fire Brigades/Departments - Fire-Fighting Equipment
« on: April 29, 2024, 05:32:45 AM »
While there are models of firetrucks and other fire-fighting equipment in a variety of scales it is only very recently that some attention has been given to 1/35th scale fire fighting vehicles and equipment. 

A topic devoted to this seems like a good idea at this point. 

To start it off, this video from "Battle Order" YouTube Channel is a good start on the subject: YouTube > Battle Order > Who Fights Military Grade Fires?

While I personally detest the term "Military Grade" as a click-bait catch phrase the video is educational as far as the content is concerned.

Great Idea !  I have photos of many ex-military vehicles -- M8 High-speed, DUKWs, M-113s, various Russian T-tanks, Maz Scud truck, German half-tracks and a motorcycle-sidecar etc.

The Colet has to be the sexiest fire-engine out there !

That deserves to have a sci-fi movie written just so that it can be the star
