Faun ARFF
Brick version of the iconic late seventies German ARFF made by Faun (chassis) and Metz (coachwork, water pump etc.). Many German boys owned the famous SIKU die-cast model. Main features of this are the tilted windscreen, the working suspension and the use of some technic parts. The MOC has been slightly overworked in December 2011 (no stickers as mudguards any more).

Many thanks guys! @cyberfrank 2010: Glad you like it. There is not much of an interior, I am afraid, only some seats and a steering wheel ... @legoboyawesome123 legofan: No, it's exactly the same size.

Thanks a lot guys, glad you like it! @legoboyawesome123 legofan: The die-cast model had red wheels, so they are my favorites ;-) The suspension works with the black ones as well, the rims have the same shape.

This is quite a treat there. Love the colors and the suspension. It reminds me of Tatra trucks that pulled cannons in my army days. Nice one!

Quoting Paul Beach I like this concept! Are there walking beams in the back as well?
Thank you very much! Yes, it's identical. The initial inspiration was the 8 wide fire truck 7213 with a similar suspension.

Quoting Oran Cruzen Question: I hear the arff but where is the dog?
Going walkies. All this water pumping and splashing nearly drives him crazy.

Wow, a really impressive model of the Faun FLF. It looks like the Siku model that was available in 1983. It looks awesome, and the details... very nice ;)

Quoting Andy L Very nice build. I like the white trim around the wheel arches.
Thank you Andy. In fact these are stickers. Some purists told me that this is no adequate building technique and I think they are right. Since I found no other solution for this without dismantling the whole model I have taken them off. I will put in some new photos soon. Sorry about that!

Quoting Milos Jovanovic This looks great! You should join some groups, and add your creations there, that way more people will see them. This fire truck definitely deserves more ratings. Good job.
Thank you very much, Milos! I am rather a freshman with MOCpages - so I am still looking for suitable groups I can join. The reason why I don't feature this MOC too much are the stickers as mudguards - purists say that this is no adequate building technique, and I agree. In the meantime I have pulled them off. So I will shoot some new photos and add the MOC to some groups, as you suggested. Thanks a lot for your advice!

Quoting Nils O. That's cool! My brother had the SIKU model. Great shaping and great details! It' looks just like metal model :-)).
Thank you very much, Nils. Yeah, this Siku die-cast model is an icon. I gave mine away some years ago, so my first MOC is a kind of resurrection of a childhood dream.

Quoting Paulo Rodriguez Love this truck looks so awesome yet detailed, its a beast, what more can be said! -Paulo R.
Thank you very much for your kind comment, Paulo. It is indeed a beast, just like the older Oshkosh ARFF trucks which I also love. 10w is a bit wide, but it had to be still larger than the 8w fire apparatus.
