Oshkosh P15
Model Team: Oshkosh P15 Aircraft Rescue Fire Fighting vehicle with water cannons.
About this creation


It is my first scale Model Team creation (1:30) of a real vehicle. I have aimed for a high level of detail, while still maintaining the functionality.
Here are some more clear samples of the pictures I used in the video:









Apart from smallest moving parts, such as doors, all functions are motorized using Power Functions remote control.




Steering is with dual tooth racks to minimize the width.




An NXT motor was the best for the drive in this model. It allows for a differential on each axle while only using 3 additional cogs.




The motor for the pumps is an RC motor which is switched on using a 9V switch to avoid going through a PF receiver (to maximize the power and run without having to hold down a button on the remote)




The 9V switch is beneath the receivers.




To the left of the 9V switch there is a mechanical switch for the pneumatic hose. With this you can choose the active cannon. (seen more clearly in the video)

I use a bottle to hold the water. All other parts are from LEGO, and if you insist on using only LEGO parts, you can use a small air tank instead.




It is all nicely packed inside.




The cannons turn together with the steering and their height is controlled using flexible tubes.

I'm a retired U.S. Air Force firefighter, and I used to drive the P-15. You did an excellent job!

It's absoloutly beautiful!

I appreciate the photo's but when I tried to enlarge so that I could have an idea of what parts I'd need they became very blurry and couldn't really tell what parts I'd need. Thanks, anyways for trying to help me with them photo's. It too complicated to figure out the parts!!

Quoting Joseph Perkowski Hi Lasse, I sent the first group of photo's to the desk top so that I can copy them. I just have to do then with the 2nd set of photo's. You have no parts listing, or step by step instructions?? If not, do you know where I may be able to find them??
That's just it. Parts lists and step-by-step instructions take a long time to make, time that I don't have until next year. If someone is willing to make instructions (a parts list can then be made automatically), then these pictures should suffice.

Quoting Joseph Perkowski Hi Lasse, I'm checking to see if you have been able to figure out the parts I would need to build the P-15?? I sure would appreciate any help you could find out as to the parts list. If you want you can contact me at this email: jperkowski@rochester.rr.com Thank You, Joe
I have had time to take the Oshkosh apart today and taken pictures of all the larger parts. The chassis remained in one piece as it can be built much simpler without motors. The pictures can be found here: http://www.brickshelf.com/cgi-bin/gallery.cgi?f=468039 Once moderated.

Thank You for responding. I really appreciate it. I would be thankful whatever you can find, so that I could build this model. If you could send it as an email attachment, or whatever is best for you. Thank You.

There has been some new development. The reason why I really couldn't help is that I don't have the actual model any more. Now it seems that I will be able to get it back by the end of this month. Then I can take the larger parts off and give small lists of their bricks. This should help you getting both a parts list and constructions details. Full building instructions for a model of this size still takes me a couple of months to complete. I am working on software that makes this process easier, and would like to finish this before making more building instructions the hard way.
Quoting Joseph Perkowski I appreciate your response, but unless I know what I need for parts to build the P-15 I just can't guess as to what I need?? I just thought you may have had a list of the parts when you made the P-15. I'd be willing to pay for purchase of some kind of parts list, or if you know of anyone who may remember what one would need to make this model.

Quoting Joseph Perkowski Hi Lasse, I mainly just want to build the P-15. I'm not concerned with it being motorized as I just want it for display. Do you know where I could get the Lego pieces to make the P-15?? If I could still get the parts list that would be a big help. Is there any way someone could send me the list from when you made it?? I'd really appreciate it. Thank You!!
I did not make a parts list when I built it, as I did not plan for making more than the one. You can purchase parts at bricklink.com

Quoting Joseph Perkowski What do you mean by reverse engineer it?? And how does one go about doing that??
Simply building a copy from the pictures. Someone was able to build my Scania simply by looking at pictures, and there are more pictures of the Oshkosh than of the Scania. The motorization and water mechanism will be difficult to duplicate, but the shell is much less of a challenge.

Quoting Joseph Perkowski I would like to know if there is any way I can get the Lego P-15 to build on my own?? I worked on this truck while in the USAF. I'd appreciate any information you can send me on how to get this model.
Right now your best bet is to reverse engineer it from pictures. It will take at least a year until its building instructions will be made because there are so many other models in the queue.

Brilliant job, looks perfect and it works!! With real water. That to me would seem a world of issues but somehow you've got it functioning without blowing up. Great work, 10/10 : )

This looks just like the P-15 Fire Trucks used at my workplace (Fairchild Air Force Base, Spokane, Washington USA). Kudos to the great modeling job! I can attest that the real P-15 trucks are VERY POWERFUL!

Well I used up all my superlatives for the Coca-Cola truck... but I have to throw some more in for this wonderful fire truck. Again you have captured the design, styling and detail superbly, but astound us all again with the extreme level of motorization that has become your trademark. I can only imagine how much effort you poured into this thing. Thank you for sharing. I very eagerly await your next model! Miles/..

While not as impressive as your Coca-Cola Truck, this one holds high respect by me. I'm dazzled by the water functions. Good day
