2010 Seagrave Marauder II/Aerialscope (-/-/75') Tower Ladder 13 I proudly present you the finished FDNY L-13 "The Pride of Yorkville". This is the second time I built this rig and it will again travel to NYC to meet the real truck and it's roster. This year together with me :o) So expect some really nice pics at the end of the year. I tried to add as much detail as possible and I really like how it turned out. Cab, bodywork, bucket and all the tiny details are my own work. Credits and a thank you for the boom and the help belong to Castle Beach FD www.flickr.com/photos/fdcb/ and David Hensley www.flickr.com/photos/davidhensley And finally a big thank you to Robson M. from Brickdesigners who did a marvelous job on the custom stickers (except the reflective striping and letters) I highly recommend his great work and help. www.brickdesigners.com/shop

Hmm.. Not sure if I understand completely what you wanna know from me. I build my trucks mostly without much functions because design and detail is more important for me. If I can manage to add some functions, like on this rig here the working boom, I try to do it with the best possible mix of good design and function. Dunno if this answers your question. Btw, highly appreciate it when you hit the like button ;)

I know this is random, but it's been bothering me. Why does function matter more/less than form? I wanted a few opinions on this to help me understand. I appreciate you taking the time to look (and hopefully) answer this for me.

Yeah it's the same here. Michael helped me with the boom because he and David Hensley designed it. But leave your E-mail. Maybe I can send you the file of the boom. Should be no big deal if you give proper credit. I changed the design here and there for my own purposes and can tell you that it's working nicely.

Mines Paulo Rs tower he let me use it I think it would look better he helped me with trying to get the pieces but said he couldn’t give the file since it was someone’s design

Thanks so much for your really nice comment my friend. Pretty cool that you got a new tower. The design of the boom comes from Michael P. I would say just ask him for the file. I think he will help you. http://www.moc-pages.com/home.php/26838

Well Sven, where to start? This simply put, might be the most accurate re-creation I've ever seen. Superb from body/chasis to platform and ladder. You never cease to amaze me with your keen eye for detail! As always I wait for your next creation. Cheers! -Scotian

Quoting Jimmie Martinez
Jimmie my friend and brother, I can't thank you enough for all your lovely words and this really big compliment you made. You lovely comment makes me smile all over my face. But without the help of Michael (in this case) I still would struggle around with the boom design XD I'm glad that you love what I do and I highly appreciate every single word. Thanks again so much! Sending all the love, greets and well wishes back to you and Jill, our family in NC, and hope you have a beautiful rest of the weekend. Take care and stay safe our loved ones!

Question: How does one find a way to improve on Lego perfection? Answer: Just wait on the next FDNY model from Sven "Da Man" Jagdmann. Your ability to utilize all aspects of design, function, and detail are on a level of absolute mastery of this hobby that we all love. Your friend @TL13 is not just getting a great gift from his friend. He is getting a LEGO treasure. I am so glad that you documented this masterpiece with such fantastic shots here on Mocpages and your Flicker Account. This is the most well detailed rig that you have ever created my brother. The excellence of execution and the level of spot on perfection we all aspire to in modelmaking I am sending all the love greets and well wishes to Sven and Juila in Germany from Jill and Jimmie, your family in NC.

Oh Sweden, a country I definitely wanna visit some day. Really cool that you show my stuff your coworkers and that they are impressed too. This is really a big compliment I highly appreciate. Thanks so much for your lovely words! And yes, always work on my rigs with love and passion :) But without the help of my friends, mentioned here, this would have been not possible. I was struggling with the boom design and was so glad that Michael and David could help me. Will do my friend, as usual. To you and your coworkers: Greets to you all, take care and stay always safe and healthy. Thanks again very much! Ps: replied to your message on YT.

This Tower Ladder is so beautiful, the details are excellent and the decals are stuning. There is a word for this build: LOVE ;) You are once again showing your excellent and impressive skills in building with lego. When I show your models to my coworkers (I'm a firefighter in Sweden) they are also impressed. As usual Sven: keep up the good work and keep your models coming so that we can enjoy them :D (Please check your youtube channel, sent you a message there) /Tobias
