The folks at b2b and TWH worked exhaustively with the manufacturer of the real engines on their brilliant 1:50 Pierce Pumper. They aren’t just modeled after the factory versions — they are detailed down to the custom options added by actual fire departments around the country, and each truck has the serial number and correct equipment for an exact machine that’s out on duty even as you read this. Now THAT is scale realism!
Here’s a look at a prototype on display at a recent trade show. Production pieces should be out in a few weeks.
