Truck 3
Ten years after the original was built, I've updated the design and posted new photos. It's a Pierce mid-mount tower ladder redesigned as an Arrow XT chassis.
About this creation



This original design uses many Studs Not On Top techniques with the section over the wheels being built upside down.

With a mid-mount ladder truck, the ladder is mounted in the middle to give a lower overall height because the ladder is not going over the top of the cab. See a real Pierce mid-mount ladder here.



The aerial device is self-supporting and the basket can hold a minifig.



Ground ladders stored in compartment.







The original design as posted on MOCpages in 2005.

Great truck! I like the ladder storage a lot! Can a tower expand any further out?

it s bizarre, I thought I commented this before, as I saw this beauty long ago, it s always been my best, at the time, I figured that I never could build this nice a truck, things change, and today, I could, it s too bad the pic does nt zoom, and you posted small, as for any fire truck I have seen, this one is the one I d like, I just LOVE the wheels how they are, it s kind of racy, and sleek, it s awesome!

Good point. Unfortunately, bringing the wheels in offers less space in the cab. See some of my more recent MOCs which use the smoother tires that offsets some of this problem. I also have some 7-wide vehicles that solve this problem. Thanks for the feedback!
Quoting Lego Fire Museum Inc. I have always wondered why the wheels on your trucks stick out far beyond the sides of the trucks. These look so out of place on what otherwise are very nice trucks. Using a Modified 2 x 2 Brick with Pins and Axle Hole (part 30000) would solve this problem. It looks like you are using a Modified 2 x 4 Brick with Pins (part 6249). Using the 30.4 x 14 Offset Tread Tires really helps with the overall look of the trucks, but they need to be flush with the sides.

This truck is just stunning! In fact, it inspired me to build a mid-mount ladder of my own, in 8-wide. I am just a huge fan of all your work!
