Heavy Tender and rescue Fire Truck, based on the 7891 set.
About this creation
Based on the 7891 LEGOŽ, I built this new Fire Tender. This is the first of the Fire trucks that I am remaking. I plan to eventually go back and re-do all my engines including the ones that I have re made already (already on my page). This one was still the stock 7891 Set, so it definitely needed to be the first. I made it look like the heavy Water Trucks in some airports. I definitely wanted it to look bigger and meaner. It is not as feature-heavy as some MOCs by other people, but I think I hit a creativity wall with this one. It was tough to build and it is not efficient as far as the pieces used. I like it though, it has grown on me. I decided to post it up to see what fellow builders thought.
Comments and suggestions wanted!
