I proudly present you the brandnew 2013 Seagrave Marauder II Squad Pumper "Squad 61". It stationed together with Battalion 20 in 1518 Williamsbridge Road / Bronx. This is my very first rig where i added many new details and my new "non Lego" hoses. You'll see a new deck gun, a completely new designed pump panel, a new roof/search light and a new designed hosebed which i really like. Hope you too ;) Enjoy the new rig. Never thought that i'll finish it one week earlier as predicted ;) Thank you for stopping by my friends.
About this creation
Here is a video of the real truck :) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3RHDZZ6J9pM
Roofboxes, the new deck gun, hosebed
My alltime favorite lightbar: The Federal Signal Vision SLR LED, a really nice one ;) and the new roof/search light.
On the roof of the pump panel you can see some stuff in a open box. The fire extinguisher is based on the design from Davidzq on Emergencybricks who made this one. So credits to him for this nice part.
The ladder is sticking out of the body, like on the real truck.
Running down the streets of my City :)
In loving memory of the fallen. FDNY 343 9/11/01 May they never been forgotten.
Dedicated to Lt. Gordon M. Ambelas, Ladder 119, a 14-year-veteran of the FDNY who died on July 5 from injuries sustained while attempting to save lives at a second-alarm fire in the Williamsburg section of Brooklyn. RIP brother
No problem that you missed it. Thank you very much mate ;) Sometimes I have enough parts in my collection and sometimes I have to order new parts. Engine 10 would fit to Tentruck ;) Greets back to you, Sven
Amazing! Can't believe I missed this one! I really like the decal on the side! When you build these trucks do you use pieces from your collection or do you buy them? Also I am thinking about building a new FDNY truck to go with my 10 Truck, do you have any suggestions? Greets, Reid
Hey Sven, a really nice model, very rich of cool details! Congrats for the MOC of the Day! :-)
Danke auch für deinen netten Kommentar, ich freue mich auch, dich in Borken persönlich kennenzulernen! Werde mit Marcus Paul und Gabor Horvath ein gemeinsames Layout haben:-)...
Liebe Grüße & bis bald - Steffen
Oh really??? XD Was really surprised today when I noticed the comment activity on this one. I took a look on the main page and then I saw the reason for it. MOTD with a firetruck! Yeaaaaah!! Thats pretty cool. Thank you so much my very good friend for your congrats and very nice words. Till later on Skype :) :)
Gabor my good friend, thank you so much man! I'm really happy and still can't believe it XD Were both fine. Hope you and your family as well. Can't wait to meet you in November again!! Take care my friend. Greets and hugs from us to you.
Jimmie my very good friend, thank you so much for all your kind words and congrats. I took a look on my page and was really surprised about all the comments on Squad 61. And then I noticed that it's MOTD. So cool!!! And I instantly understood BOAMOTDVWD-Bravo on a moc of the day very well deserved ;) Many lovely greets and hugs from us to you and Jill. Take care man! :)
Wooooohooooo! MOTD with another of my creations!! This is freakin awesome!!!!! I think this is one of the best days the last weeks. Todays MOTD, I had a great day at work and my brandnew Lego Big Ben set arrived. Wow, that's so cool. And now it's time to answer your really nice comments my friends ;)
Hey Noah, thank you again very much! All stickers are selfmade. Printed and cutted them out and then i sticked them on the rig. Sometimes i have to edit them in size to get them right compared to the scale of the model. The reflective stripings are made with selfadhesive reflective vinyl. Hope you understand all well :)
Hey Mark, greetings from Germany back and thank you so much for your great comment :) I'm really happy about that you like it so much. You should check out my other pics of the city :) Btw, next new FDNY unit will come tomorrow.
Yeah i know that you would like that i try my hand on a eight wide rig ;) Didn't forget it. I hope i find a nice rig and much time to start such a project. But then it will be only one rig because if have my six wide collection and it won't fit on the narrow streets of my city ;) Thaaank you so much for your nice comment and compliment mate, i'm glad that you like it.
Yeaaaaah, Germany the World Cup winner 2014!!!! It is a very well deserved :) :) :) Joe, thaaaaank you sooooo much for your congrats and rooting for Germany!! :) Wow, such a thrilling final... I'm really happy now. Thaaank you really much again my friend!!!
Two things. First of all, congrats on being #1 in the Across MOCpages list with this. Second, while I won't say the end turnout in case someone hasn't heard it, I will tell you that I was rooting for Germany in the World Cup. ;)
LOL, no problem that you missed it a while ;) I really appreciate your really nice comment and very kind compliment. Thank you so much my friend, you made me smile with all your kind words. I'll do my best in the future. The city will grow and i started working on a new FDNY ambulance today :) I think you'll like it a lot :) Aaand, thank you for the congrats!
Annnnnddd I haven't commented... Silly me. First off, congrats on Across MOCpages - how I reached it. Secondly, nice rig, great decals again, and it looks great in your city. Because your city looks great! Hope you make more, and get a dream city, because it looks like one of the best LEGO cities around!
You said that it was just kidding?? What have you done with the 100 bucks i sent you for this nice comment my friend? LOL JK again ;) Thank you so much for your great comment and much bigger compliment my friend, i'm glad that you like it and i really appreciate it!! :)
Not bad for a beginner? NOT! Sven, you have done it again, oh, by the way, thanks for the money for making this nice comment! LOL Just kidding! Wow! This is super duper or something like that! Oh, neeto (From the 50's). Boss! Groovy! (From the 60's). And all that other stuff! Very well done my friend!
Michael, thank you really much for your kind comment and your compliment. I really appreciate it, your tips/ideas also ;) I'll think about it. But i don't know if i do a fireboat in the future. Don't have a harbour in my city. But the idea is great :) Aaaaand thank you for the 60!! Yeah!!
Hey Graeme my friend, it's no problem that you don't always take a look on my page. Don't worry about it ;) Thank you so much for your nice comment and for your great compliment also! I'm very happy about that you like it :)
This will sound bad but I don't always call round to see what you've built because all of your builds are just so fantastic. The detail shown and the added decaling on the vehicles is awesome.
Great work, can't wait to see more.
Oh sorry, my fault. LOL :) Overseen that you meant me. Sorry again. :) I made a FDNY ambulance a while ago. You can see it here: http://www.mocpages.com/moc.php/299371
It's still existing but i'll replace it in the future with a newer one.
Hey Tyler again. I'm not a big fan of advertising on my creations. So i deleted the link. Please be patient with me and give me the chance to answer ;) I say it the third time. You don't have to ask me if you wanna build a FDNY ambulance. Only if you use a Lego design from me credit should be given ;)
Ahhhhh, my 50th rating!!! Yaaay, that's awesome!! Thank you very much for it Tyler. Dont ask me why, but i had the feeling that you'll do it ;) Feel free to build your own FDNY unit. I have definitely no problem with that and you don't have to ask for doing it. Only if you use one of my designs. ;) Happy building :)
Hi Allan, thank you so much for your great comment. I'm glad that you like it. Yeah, i'm very pleased with the front and the hosebed too. The flag is really a cool addition and i love this unique design on my and on the real truck :)
Hi Sven! I really don´t know much about fire trucks, but I know that it looks fantastic. There's just packed with great details everywhere, and Your decals are really nice. Absolutely pleasing to the eye.
@Tyler, no it does not. As Sven said, NFPA isn't law, just a nonprofit organization which advocates certain regulations for member fire departments. FDNY has never used chevrons, nor has Chicago or Los Angeles for that matter. FDNY was originally a MAJOR part of the NFPA but has slowly over time stopped following NFPA rules. IAFF is a union for firefighters, so it has nothing to do with chevrons or regulations, just a work union.
Hey Tyler, yeah i really like the Tenhouse. But all fireman are great guys ;) All decals are custom made. So the windshield decals too. Don't know if the FDNY needs the chevrons. Never saw chevrons on a new FDNY rig delivered in 2013-14. Found something in the www: "Just a random question... is the FDNY exempt from the chevrons?
The chevron requirement comes from NFPA, NFPA is not law only OSHA is. NFPA is highly regarded and taken by some as law. NFPA is not a government agency and does not have that level of authority. An example is FDNY helmets, the bourkes flip eye covers are not approved by NFPA but are OSHA approved. Same goes for chevrons, emergency lighting, etc"
I saw your reply to Stephen, ten house is a good one,I've been there in real life(seeing that I live in NH) really interesting. How did you get the windshield decals? Custom? Doesn't it need chevrons seeing it was purchased in 2013? Due to IAFF regulations
Stephen, thank you so much for your very nice comment :) Yeah i know that. Presented my FDNY E-10 and L-10 a while ago the guys of the famous tenhouse. You can see my rigs on their homepage (www.fdnytenhouse.com)in the pictures folder which is called mementos.
100/100 Team Sven takes the LEGO world cup. An Absolute masterpiece of design and attention to detail. That is the best deck gun design I have seen so far. A crown jewel in your FDNY fleet. Stay safe and keep up the awesome work my friend. Have you considered doing a MERV unit (hint hint hint)?
Thaaank you so much for your very kind comment Kayla. I'm glad that you like it. Yeah i really like the murals on both sides too. This makes it a really nice truck and it's after the famous Tentruck my all time favorite FDNY truck.
Hey Jimmie my good friend! Thaaank you really much for your very kind words and all your great compliment. Youre so kind to me *sniff sniff* ;) I'm really happy about that you like this truck so much. Like i said many times, i'll always do my best ;) Thanks again. Stay safe too Jimmie. I think a MERV unit could be put on the to do list for a future project. But now i'll take a little break from building. Running low on parts and have to place some orders ;)
Hi mein lieber Stephan, das ist echt ein riesen Kompliment was du mir da gemacht hast. Freut mich sehr das dir all die Details so gut gefallen. Hab natürlich, wie immer bei einem neuen Fahrzeug, wieder mal einen drauf zu setzen ;) Ist mir denke ich gut gelungen. Hat aber auch einen riesen Spaß gemacht das Fahrzeug zu bauen. War ja selber ganz nervös und neugierig drauf wie es zum Schluß ausschaut :) Bin echt happy!! Many thanks again my friend!
Hy Sven, es ist wirklich sehr beeindruckend wie viele Details Du in diesem MaÃstab untergebracht hast. Die Aufkleber sind echt Ã¼berwÃ¤ltigend, der Spiegel vorne ist sehr kreativ und auch sonst kann ich nur wiederholen " Fahrzeuge kannst Du bauen" . A really masterpiece !!
Wow. Wow. Did I say wow? I don't think I mentioned wow. I forgot to say wow. I think I need to throw a wow in. Absolutely suberb, fantabulous, amazing creation Sven! It looks just like the real one. The mural was so well made, everything was placed correctly, again, just wow. Congratulations.
Hey Marcel mein lieber Freund!! Daaaankeschön. Ich finde die Front auch total schön und ich gehe mal schwer davon aus das du sie noch öfter sehen wirst :) Gibt dem ganzen einfach das bessere Aussehen. Danke danke danke für deinen lieben Kommentar :)
Eight days ;) from Sunday to Sunday. That's a new record XD Thaaank you really much for your very kind comment Tyler :) And sure, we will never forget all the victims of 9/11. Btw, I'll delete your second comment with the loooong link. I replace it with a Youtube video link on my site. Thank you for the link btw :)
Hey Dennis, thaaaank you so much my friend! I'm very happy about that you like it. Yeah adding as much details as possible was on this one a real challenge. But it worked and i had again some nice ideas/solutions to get it better as the last one ;) The eagle murals were pretty easy to do. Got nearly a perfect fitting one in size, measures and details. Every door handle was on the same place like the Lego ones.
Oh my Sven! This is a very nice truck! I love FDNY's Squads, the new Seagraves are really really nice too, and you captured it all perfectly! Very nice tribute to the fallen 343, and best replica of the famous FDNY Squad!
Holy awesomeness Sven! It's the Excalibur of fire trucks With Out Equal! Totally epic. I love the deck gun that is brilliant. I love those mirrors . The decals are stunningly beautiful. The light bar is amazing. This is real museum quality here!
