Great pics Joe!  The "side-by-side" reveals just how incredibly accurate the Fire Replicas models are. Smiley

Mike, the guys at the different stations actually are impressed as they walk around their rigs with one of the models. I have not even picked up on everything they find until I look closer. Yesterday it was move fun also figuring out who had the bester micro settings on the phone cameras to bring the cab area views up. Accuracy is dead on, which does drive price.

Awesome photos guys...Thanks for all of them.  I have one question Joe, about the real E-32.  Why would they put a go-light on the top if it already has a brow light, dual spotlights, and scene lights?  I'm just curious  Wink

Troy the real engine 32 was I think a 2013 version of the current engine, the front brow light was not on that year's model it had the go light. Also that year the electronic siren is a little different on the bumper. Drew was able to get a correct size brow light and add it, he was tempted to take off the brow light and was not sure what kind of scar would be left on the model so he left it on.

Another Columbus rig completed with some custom decals from InQuarters. Station 14 at 1514 Parsons Ave Columbus in the “Graceland” neighborhood has a unique mascot ‘Elvis’; not only is Elvis on the rig he is in the house. A velvet Elvis is hanging in the front window of the apparatus bay along with hundreds of other Elvis memorabilia donated to the station over the years. This is still the most unique engine mascot in the city, the medic has the Gates of Graceland on the rear of its rig.
