This is the NBCFD's new Ladder 1, a 2013 Pierce Velocity 100' Heavy Duty ladder. It was delivered on the 12th of Jan 2013. I started building it on the 1st of Jan, and it took three small Bricklink orders to finish this beast. To build it I had to take Squad 1 and the old Ladder 1 apart, but it was totaly worth it! Ladder 1 has a 1500gpm waterous pump with a 750 gallon water tank. It does not have a foam system. It has a Detroit Diesel engine, a 105' vertical reach, and a 100' horizontal reach. For those of you aksking me how I do my decals, it is mainly Microsft Word and for the stripes, coloured-in sticky paper. It is not something you will master quickly, as this truck alone took me 2 hours just to do the decals! And that's not including designing them on the PC! I am very pleased with this truck and please tell me what you think about it! Credit for insperation goes to Bob K.
very nice truck you have here, however I noticed in the description that you said this had a 1500gpm pump? yet there is no pump? maybe inside the compartment? still then it could no way be a 1500gpm pump, maybe if you added a PUC style pump and a another compartment you could say it has a pump? Just letting you know, that real ladder doesn't have pump either. Still nice job! I really Velocity ladders.
