2008 HME Custom Pumper
This is a 2008 HME Custom Pumper. It is built on HME's Model 1871 Chassis with a MFD cab. It has a 1500 gpm Hale Q-Max pump and a 700 gallon tank.
About this creation
HME Incorporate of Wyoming, Michigan was founded in 1985 with the purchase of assets of Hendrickson Manufacturing. HME initially built custom fire chassis for Grumman Emergency Products.

When Grumman left the fire apparatus business HME in 1992 began to market its Model 1871 custom chassis to other builders of fire apparatus. HME also began building complete fire apparatus.

In 2002 HME leased the rights to the name Ahrens-Fox and has bestowed the name HME/Ahrens-Fox on its top of the line custom apparatus. BFD552@gmail.com.

Excellent work. Access to the actual drawing must help greatly in making these and I'm pleased to hear that you do scale work. I've always thought the 8 wides look more realistic.

Quoting Andy Thomas I like what you did on the pump panel is that a reversed antenna piece?
No, it is not a reversed antenna. The discharges are Technic bricks - part number 32000 - with Technic, Pin 1/2 - part number 4274 - with cut pieces of Bar 4L Lightsaber Blade - part 30374. Normally, I do not add the cut pieces to fill the discharges, but I wanted them to look like we have caps on them. I try to make the pump panels as realistic as possible.

Quoting Middlebrick Fire Very nice, looks a lot like my real Fire Dept's HME pumper/tanker from the cab forward. Ours has quite a long body and a top mounted pump though. Nicely done, I love your work, wish the photos were working so I could see the rest of your creations :)
Thanks. I wish that the photos were up too. I am looking at a least a few hours of work to uploand everything again. I already tried a couple of times to upload replacement photos and it did not work. Believe me, I am VERY unhappy about it.

Quoting Paul McKeever III are these all to like scale?
Yes. It is slightly larger than "minifig" scale. One stud equals one foot. All my trucks are scaled for width, length and wheel base. My modern trucks are all 8 studs, or 96 inches, wide. This is normal cab width nowadays. I use manufacturer's specifications and scale drawings that are available online to help me build. My antiques all are in the same scale. Their widths are either six or eight wide. During the 1930s trucks went from around 72 inches wide to around 96 inches. That is measured from the sides of the tires. Bodies and cabs were usually around 72 inches. It wasn't until the 1970s that full width cabs of 92 or 96 inches became common. Old trucks I have to build from photos alone but if I have their wheel base information I can accurately scale the rest.

A very nice truck, I really like the water cannon on the top, looks nice. The front also has a nice look to it.

Nice 8 wide design!! I like a lot of the 6 wide designs and get a lot of inspiration and ideas, but I do build in 8 wide also. When and if you get a chance please check out some of my models and designs. They might look like junk but I try and make them so the lego figures can fit and function inside them as well. Outstanding creation though. Looks very clean!!!
