it helps saving cybercity fire heroes,
in thight situations or fire victims!
i had to do it!
i customized the fire helicopter because it seemed designed more for forests fires!

here is the back of the new version.
right side overview
details have been added, and this should be it!
vehicles will be refined some more!
Love the rocket idea! Too bad we can't utilize it in the real world. The robot is another wonderful MOC. The tiller looks great! You may want to change the bucket though; it looks too small to rescue people from your giant buildings... You did an excellent job on this! Considering the size of your city, I hope to see another fire station from you soon...
well, If I ever change theme from castle to city stuff I can see what can be done, amazing, somewhat bigger than my police and fire station that my parents bought me when I were a lad many years ago....You have been busy taking great pride in your constructions for sure, very good indeed...and many thanks for the good comments about my castle kingdom !!.....

thanks! i m happy you appreciate,the answer is, the concept of my city,is to be totally autonomous! and so have all services! with that in mind,i decided on having a combo police-fire building,it took a long time to finish,as my pic quality difference shows! i tought of it through and through!
and then some!
it helped to conceive it in the cartoon theme-mind, thanks for your most welcomed comment!
how... did... you... MAKE THIS!!!!! its amazing so well done to great to be true i cant find words to describe this i can belive you have a station like this your trucks are pretty nice to not based off of any real truck though (ahhh!!!!) but very nice and again the station is like heaven for firefighters the robot, helicopter, ofice space its all amazing and again its amazing this is like no other well done :)-Paulo R. SCFD
Well done, not only is the fire department beautiful, well detailed, and all around obscenely satisfying just to look at, the police department is also an epic win. Good work mate, and DEFINITELY keep bricking.
Again, excellent work. Love all the little details you add, and the crash test dummy on the shelf gave me a laugh! Here is a bit of a tip, place your creations in different folders so we can more easily find your work. See my home page for an example. Cheers!

thanks steffen for your comments,i ll add i find the new airport,inspiring with its huge curved shaped window,and other goodies,but,i don t have experience in plane building,exept,
maybe my biggest helicopters,but i did nt had
the time to customize the fire dept one!
i really envy you to have an airport,as i don t have enough space where i live to expose it!
i thank you for your explanation!
This is great, I would defiantly buy this fire station over the official Lego one. Some very nice details like the glass roof and the little accessories. One thing about your elevator is that being in a fire station and all their health and safety and they don't have any railings on the open shafts.LOL 5/5
Hey Frank, this is a very cool fire station, as you combined conventional features that I like (multiple garages, a heli landing pad) with unconventional ones (the big outer starway, the terrace-shaped structure of the building, the pretty tower looking good for itself, despite its functional purpose [drying the hung up water hoses]). The station looks like it must be a lot of fun to play with. And I love playability... So good job!
Thanks for your nice comment on my P-1 Falcon jetliner, BTW! To your question: I wonīt buy the current Lego airport because other than the plane parts, it doesnīt feature enough nice pieces to expand my collecion. I do own the biggest original Lego passenger plane that came out, though (the four-engined jet), which nowadays isnīt availiable anymore. It was the best original Lego plane I think, but Iīll only use it to make a more satisfactory design (probably a turbo-prop airliner). What generally bothers me about those prepared, huge plane pieces is that one canīt incorporate functional features such as working landing gear very well. And there are a lot of other flaws about those pieces. Thatīs why I prefer to make my own designs in general, using nothing but conventional, more versatile general pieces for my models. i donīt mind my models to be heavy, but have to take care of the problem of tail-heaviness sometimes (with boat weights, for instance).Best regards, Steffen
