Great build.

Lots of cool detail on a fire engine.

Soooo close now. I've repainted the headlights & need to get an exact position on the mudguards for 'em. Ladders are painted & on, ditto the
rear guards.  I'm still pondering a black grill. I think the decals & the accessories break up the red fairly well.

I'll sort the open section of the bonnet over the weekend. The hose on the reel is black heat shrink, shrunk & flattened with an iron
( when Anne was out!) My next attempt will be better, but I can live V 1.0 here.

 I've been good & mowed the 'grass',done my washing so all my weekend chores are done.  

So the rest of the weekend can be devoted to 'things I want to do' not 'things I have to do'

Have a good weekend

Cheers,

Chris

Looks great Chris. I do like your details on the hoses and ladder. They are awesome!

I would leave the grille red. I think black would just be too much on a mostly red truck. It would stand out too much. If the headlamps are something other than red, it will help break up the colors.
