FDNY Engine 5 14th Street Express "UPDATE"
Here it is my friends, the long awaited FDNY Engine 5. It's a 2003 Seagrave 1000/500 Pumper stationed in the firehouse of Engine Co.5, 340 East 14th St. Manhattan. Added some nice features which you can see on the following pics. Decals are selfmade as usual and the stripings are reflective. I hope you like this new rig. Thank you for stopping by, rating and commenting. ;)
About this creation
Here is a new update of the interior of the firehouse. Added some new details like the new lights built into the ceiling, the flags got a new place and i added a new exhaust extraction system. Now the suction hose is movable on a rail system mounted on the ceiling of the garage. It works very good ;) The front of the firehouse got some new signs. Hopy you like the new details.




1 This is a original pic of the rig in it's quarters. Owned by Jag9889 on Flickr.


2 The first call for my E 5. The crew rushes to the truck. Some notes: It's pretty tight for the truck but it fits well through the doors. But it's actually a bit longer as the garage, so i have to add more bricks in the back section of the firehouse. Will be fixed soon. XD


3 Driving out of the firehouse.


4 The crew enters the rig, ready for driving to the scene.


5 En route to the scene.


6 Back to the quarters.


7 Here you can see the back detailing of the rig. I really like the flag :)


8 Added the "E5" on the grill. I cutted both pieces out with a very sharp and small blade. Was very fiddly but the result is pretty cool.


9 Here you can see the roof details. Used the dark grey frogs for the "Godzilla" figures.


10 The hosebed with my selfmade hoses :)


11 Pump panel officers side.

Thanks for stopping by my friends :)

The bay door itself has a height of 11 bricks, the complete red front is 13 bricks high. The inner ceiling is ca 12 brick high. Thank you so much for your really nice comment my good friend :) Glad you like it.

Sven, The station that you should build is Ten House. I know you said about it awhile back, but you should follow through with that idea. I'm sure you will nail it right on the head my friend.

Sven this isn't even worth a five!!!! It's worth a 10+. You did a fantastic job on Engine Quarters 5 and Engine Co. 5. I have a question? How many bricks high is the front? What I mean is the height of the apparatus bay door from the ground to the first floor above the apparatus room? I've been looking at different FDNY Firehouses and every time I start one it never turns out the way it should. Could you message me on Emergency Bricks and let me know about everything I asked here. But again GREAT JOB MY FRIEND!!!!!

Hi Henry, thank you so much for your great comment and compliment :) I really appreciate it and i'm glad you like it. Yeah the frogs are a result of a survey i made on Emergencybricks. Davidzq had the idea for using frogs. I tried many versions before, also a selfmade thingy with using minifigure hands. But the frogs were the best lookin ones :) So i choosed them. Thank you very much again.

This is an amazing truck. It is incredible how you are able to fit all of these details into this scale without the model appearing cluttered. I especially like the gray frogs on the roof being used as the godzilla figurines.

Sven I must tell you, this is excellent! The truck is great and the station is excellent! One detail that seems to be overlooked is that exhaust removal system! That design is brilliant! I've been pondering a design to use with that type of hose and this is perfect! Would you mind if I used it in some future projects?

He had a shower during the alarm went off. ;) Btw, i'm thinking about doing a Lego Fireman Calender. What do you think about?

Hey Marcel, lang nichts mehr von dir gehört ;) Danke dir für deinen lieben Kommentar. Freut mich sehr das dir der Truck gefällt. Nur die Chromstreifen um die Scheinwerfer und Frontblitzer sind mit selbst zugeschnittener Folie gemacht. Ist aber auch von Lego Aufkleberresten. ;) Die Teile für den Grill sind original Lego Chromteile. Hoffe es geht dir soweit gut. Viele Grüße, Sven

It would be cool if New York would send you a round trip ticket to come visit the fire stations that you have used in building this great vehicles!

Once again you have created a vehicle that manages to stand out from the abundance of similar models overflowing these pages. It is especially the fine details, and as mentioned by others, the brilliantly designed decals that makes a difference. But also your pictures in your fine NYC environment makes it a pleasure to watch.

Quoting NovaScotian 1987
Sure my friend :) I'll tell you. I use normal paper for the stickers. I create them with paint on my computer, print them out, overstick them with Sellotape, cut them out and glue them with a glue stick on the models. I think it's a good technique because the glue and the stickers are easy removable if you put the whole model into warm water. So no Legos will harmed. Only the chrome parts around the headlights are made with cutted Lego stickers. Thank you so much for your very very kind comment my friend!! :)
