Then they released the FDNY rescue set and I ordered it. They really knocked it out of the park with this release. Hopefully I can survive my wife's wrath.  Grin

I've said this before -- just make sure that your wife has a more expensive hobby (like horses)....  I don't even want to know how much she spends, but there's never a question when an occasional big package from Wisconsin shows up at the front door.

Wonder if Judge Judy would consider a group 'retainer' for all the husbands out there who are now into Fire Replica's models..?

So much for hiding the Code 3's, folks..!

And, a real tip of the white helmet goes to Nicholas Neumann, who saw the vision, took the chance, and is now on his way to living his dream...  Thanks from all of us, Nick...

Well... You're not the only one. I purchased the set as well. I HOPE they bring the last two rescues to complete the set.

Thanks for sharing

This is why I have a P.O. Box and a rear outside entrance to my basement shop which leads to the fireman man cave!!  No longer necessary to answer any embarasing  questions.

I know these things are collectables but why not produce more and lessen the price so more of us can afford to enjoy these awesome models

These type of collectibles are always going to have a limited market.  I am sure the folks at Fire Replicas have looked at the market for a particular model, and based their production run on that.  I think you would have to have a run in the many thousands to see any appreciable decrease in the retail price.  Don't forget the amount of hand assembly involved in each piece.

Exactly, These models are not meant for the masses. To much hand assembly and detail. We've NEVER seen this amount of perfection when it comes to a model since, possibly TWH. However, I'd put these models well above TWH.
