Welcome Volvo N720 your work looks great.....interesting that you state that you like your models to have a used look... there was a photo that someone posted somewhere on here awhile back....it was the old Green 1981 Mack belonging to ENG*41 later SQ*41...it was beat up & the green paint was stained especially around the rear wheel wells....whoever posted it titled the photo something like "a real Urban Rig" or something to that effect .....anybody else remember where that photo is ?

Thank you 68jk09  :)

That was a real fire truck! With "urban dirting"

And when schools were recessed for the summer, similar stickers "Schools Out" or such were issued.

Department Orders had a blurb about when to apply or remove stickers for maximum impact.

 Volvo N720 - Your work is certainly Impressive, no doubt about that. Every single detail part of it. You certainly have a very special talent.

 I think you had mentioned that you had been aware of this sites other model fire truck builder, Tom E., aka "guitarman314". I think that he has done a few models custom built for a few guys on here. His work and attention to every detail is a lot like yours. You can certainly contact him through the message feature on this site. Tom is also a personnel friend to many of us here.

 I appreciate you taking the time to join our group. As well as posting those photos with progress reports and explaining to us what the fire service of Sweden is like.

 On a side note - if you and "G-man" ever decide to team up on a worldwide business, marketing your products, I want to be the FIRST Guy in line considered to be your CEO (Chief Executive Officer). We'll give those Wall St Stock Market Executives something to really think about.

Jonas, if you and Tom ever do get together,  all you need to rope Willy in is a bag of Big Macs (I assume you're familiar with them).

You´re a funny guy  :D :D :D

I´m also glad you like my R1. Your support means a lot. It´s soon time for planning the body. And I´m not sure of the size yet. Still tying to find the wheelbase. It´s easier if I´ve that.

Today I´ll continue with the wipers and the rubber around the windshield. More about that later today  :)

`I´m sure, and hope, Tom and me will hook up some day.

Todays WIP!

It looks better and better... The decals came today and so prefect they were. The chrome and rubber around the windows are done now. Just the mirror on the right side is still missing. It´s a special mirror, depending which year you select 😊

I think I had found the right size with the body... It´s very difficult. I´m laying bigger profiles now and sanding them down later  :)

The right mirror is very special but it´s now in place.
