Fire Replicas has out done themselves again. This truck is just amazing looking. When I first pulled it out of the box I just could not believe my eyes. Sutphen Platforms are very different from any other mid mount aerial/basket. Sutphen aerial towers have a unique L shaped corners on the box of the booms which gives is strength, this model truly captures that, the telescoping features and sections blend very well with all the cross members The high side rails are flawless, along with the climbing ladder sections. The turntable is perfect nothing was missed. One of the other impressive features are the dual nozzles and the yoke that feed them again spot on. Even inside the basket you find tools, hose lines and the control gauges which are done in decal similar to pump panels. The next thing you eyes are drawn to is the light scope which is perfectly done. The body of the SPH is spectacular again every detail captured from numbered compartments to each light, outrigger,and jack. The cab again just as perfect as the engine with the Sutphen light bezels. The pump panels look great you almost feel you could hook the LDH hose to put it in action. The truck comes with a decal sheet that will allow the collector to personalize it to a specific station, the decals were easy to put on, this one was done as ladder 10. Currently Columbus has 4 towers (10,22,23,33) with this specific ladder board which was made to include the station logo on it. Besides the numbers those station patches are also on the decal sheet. Even if you decide not to number yours the beauty of the truck still jumps out. You know when you nailed something is when the guys that work on these rigs everyday look at it and canít find anything out of place.

This is the first Sutphen SPH model ever done, I canít wait to see the folks faces at Sutphen when they see it. I know this was a challenging project to capture the aerial features and many parts, however nothing was missed. This is a outstanding model a true must for you collection. This one is heading back to Wisconsin it was only on loan for a event here in Columbus in which it was the center of conversation. Thanks Fire Replicas for taking on the hard trucks and creating a masterpiece.

This will not be on Fire Replicas web site until after Christmas and should be here at the end of January. This would look great in any collection remember the Columbus Sutphen engine sold out in less than 24 hours. Also Fire Replicas does sell gift cards so when someone asks you what you want do what I do tell them to get you a Fire Replicas gift card Smiley.

Its the Atlas version in diecast from the Ambulances of the World collection. I posted a review on Emergency Modeler.  Its not all that bad for the price. I got two of them from an overseas Ebay'er for less than $20 each. I wanted the pods on the roof. Here is one that I have not finished, that has all the holes filled in on the roof.

Here is a model i finished a few weeks ago and finally had a nice day to take pictures. This is a 1/64th ALF Chicago engine 23 converted into the spare squad unit Chicago Fire Dept has. I redid the rear area, added the styrene parts where the ladder was and also custom made the roll up doors where the pump panel was. and added a piece of black duct tape for the hose cover.
