New Squad/Rescue 3
« on: November 28, 2008, 00:53:57 »
Hello Everyone,

As you know, it has been a very long time since I have done anything with Playmobil. So with a big grin on my face I present to you the new and very much improved Playmobil Fire Department's heavy rescue unit.

This unit is based on a stock chassis from the 3265 ( Dump Truck ) and parts from the 4119 ( Rail Car )
I also used a years supply of ABS plastic to finally get it all right. So here it goes folks...


Squad 3 at its assigned Station, Station 4.

The squad responds to all structure fire, accidents with entrapment, rescues, hazmat incidents, etc.

The unit has all LED lighting and a Mobil Data Terminal in the cab.

The real difference between the old and new squads is that the extrication tools have been moved to the very bottom of the truck.

Alright I'm finished. Thanks for taking the time to view my new truck and I hope everyone likes it.

Just a little information about it. I started this project about 2 years ago, after I built the first one, and THANKS to Bill's photos ( got me back into the mix ) I got the truck done in about 2 weeks.  ;D

As always, comments are much appreciated.

Excellent custom apparatus, Ben  :wow:! Very detailed project! I need to decide on two large heavy rescue units HR127, & HR227, but I'm having trouble deciding which Playmobil truck to start with  ???. Besides, these will be my first major custom project  :shhhh:.

  Forget about all of the other stuff,....all we need is the reintroduction of the 3526 Fire Engine!

I did not know it had been a long time  :toot: but must say that if you make customs like this please continue .

If you hear the sound of the bell which will tell you that Grigori has been killed, if it was your relations who have wrought my death, then no one in the family will remain alive. They will be killed by the Russian people. :prays:
