About this creation
Again i'll repeat this, Magirus Mercur is a German truck built by Magirus Deutz from 1951 to 1972. The most produced were the Fire Engines and the Turntable Ladders, although Magirus built some Bus and Dump Trucks, Etc
Here in my town we had one like this, he came (used) in 1990 from Germany to Portugal with other trucks to other Fire Depts. He came without water tank, in our repair shop we put one tank of 600 liters (aprox. 158,5 gallons).

Nice! Looks very accurate. Sad to see the real one left on its own like that though, it should be in a museum :-)
Thanks!! :D Personally i want this truck in a museum but the actual owner of it isn't selling it and our Fire Dept. have no money for buy it. You could see some actual photos here https://flic.kr/s/aHsm4y8xx5 .
