This is excellent work. It is very well designed and built beautifully. I can even overlook the fact that it is a Pierce. I love all the details. The only part that I am not completely sold on is the design of the pistons for the aerial ladder. These should be more forward and not behind the ladder but next to it. This photo shows what Iam talking about: www.elsmerefc.com/?page_id=161
Other than that, I really like the stick; it looks beefy and strong.
Keep up the great work. I am looking forward to your next project!
