Heavy Rescue 004 is a 2009 Pierce Quantum built by NBFA imported from the USA (no really!).
After being assigned at training academy as TANGO ALPHA SIX, this appliance is now on the run at A3 Handswork, Blockingham, as ALPHA THREE-SIX.
This appliance is alpha divisions mobile tool box, and acts as a tech rescue, RIT/FAST and SWAR.
(On a side note, thank you very much to Collin, Bruce, and the rest of the NBFA crew, for designing and building this great rig, i've since done some small aftermarket mods to the compartments.

Very good! How do you do the steps?
i didn't actually build this cab, Collin did, on my versions i pull the steps inline with the bodywork, i might upload some shots of my versions.
my technique and the classic technique shown here is based on Bob K / Paul Bs version which is just snotted hinges, it does't take much to notice how thats done.
hey, thanks a lot calvin, most credit must got to NBFA for the main cab and body.
the lockers work because they are attached only at the top so that you can pull on the handle and it slots out, then you remove the handles and attach them to the top of the cabinet.
i prefer this method to legos doors as it looks much more like the real thing, doesn't waste space and makes it very customizable, plus you can have photos with them half open like you do often see on the fireground.
