You're too modest, Tom.  But looking at your pictures (and particularly page 7, the Maxim pumper) raised a question in my mind:  did FDNY ever have a Maxim?  I don't think so, but I don't know.  Anybody?

A real craftsman & a gentleman....excellent models as well as an excellent photo presentation....i especially like the SQ*41 original lime Mack capturing so many custom details of this Rig.....a question on one of the shots showing ENG*73 & ENG*236 side by side w/lime Macks...if i remember correctly these are the same Rig's...236 had it first then 73 gave up their ALF & got 236's Mack ....i would imagine that someone on here that follows registration numbers can verify this....i know 73 got 236's but i am not sure if they had their own lime Mack before that.... i  just remember covering there as a LT & they were working to get a Mack & 236's became available.

  According to F.A.J. Mack CF book: Original ten 1981 Lime Macks went to Engines: 10, 41, 42, 45, 46, 58, 85, 94, 236 & 277. Only 3 were reassigned to other companies and they were: MP8105-E10 to E4; MP8106-E85 to E263 to Training School; MP8110-E236 to E73. Three were repainted White over Red, they were E45(MP8104), E10/E4(MP8105), E46(MP8108). ;)
