The Fire Museum has collected many period photos of classic 20th Century fire apparatus. Many of these photos feature the many rigs that served in the Old Fire Station that now is at the heart of the Fire Museum, such as the classic 1947 American LaFrance Pumper.

I agree with Tom S that a little noise and distress would help take these to the next level, but what you've done here is wonderful. The photos and models themselves are really well done, and the concept is great.

Those ALF 700s are amazing! Those will always be my favorite classic fire appuratus.

If you like, GIMP is a free photo editor you can use to add "noise" and such to these for a more authentic look. It's bascially a free Photoshop. You can play with the coloring and give them a discolored or bleached look as well. Old photos is something I have yet to try with LEGO yet but you've done a good job with these. I would have some of these framed and hanging on my wall if I were you. :D

I really like how you captured the period feel with these photos. It is a fantastic way to see some of your amazing trucks in a different light! Regards, Eric.
