So, my first Fire Engine. It is Ladder 29 from the Indianapolis Fire Dept. The rig is a 2009 Pierce Arrow Ladder. It was used in the series ''Rescue Me'', as FDNY rig. Then it is placed over to Indianapolis. Hope you like it :)
Rear, with stripey striping... Do agree it looks cool :)
Opening compartiments, nothing in them, didn't bother yet. Me as not being the rig-expert doesn't know what's in there...
Now, this is what I call a ladder. The double ladder can move in a ''v-shape'', and the tray can move slightly to be balanced.
Ref. pic. Not owned by me. This is the pic used while building the rig.
Additional LEGOŽ-rig info: 6 studs wide x 32 studs long.
The first piece of ladder is 4 studs wide x 24 dtuds long, and the top piece 4 studs wide x 32 studs. Tray and hinges not included.
@Sven: thanks mate. I know this is not a good firetruck, but I am glad you like this as my first attempt. And that ladder is just an epic fail ;) @Aaden, Starscream, Nick and Joe: Thanks friends. I am glad you like this as my first firetruck, too :) @Harrison and Paulo: yes, like replied to Sven this is a bad first try with some fails, but I suppose it okay :) @Gunnar: thanks for your comment! No, I don't even live in the States, Holland, is my territory :) Great you live there, my parents visited it once :) Sorry for my late replies, as work started I have a lot of business to do!
I like it

Its pretty good. Do you live in Indiana cause i do
Cool first try for a 6 wide Firetruck my friend. Now some suggestions or rather some help/information. It's no critcism 1. The body is'nt higher as the cab on the original one :) 2. You made a snorkel and no ladder due to how your ladder part works. 3. You forgot outriggers. Apart from that it's a really nice and great built truck and i like it very much. I know this was your first try on such a big firetruck and i'm happy that you tried the ambitious project. Great my friend!
