That big beast really shows of your skills to the max. Such a neat job. Still waiting to see your full collection of R/C. Do you have a picture post of the rst of your builds anywhere?

How far do you manage to get the snozzel to shoot water and do you use any additive to make it look like foam?

When you likely to get this mobile ???

Hi Joe

You are a prolific builder with some unusual builds !!! I really like the Kenworth Military Tanker !!!!!! I am more keen on the hard worked military and civil trucks rather than the custom show trucks ,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,, but that is just my preference !!!!!!

A great selection

felt like working with plastic today, so i started on the topper for the boom compartment

again, every truck i look at is alittle different. so im going to combine what i saw from each one. 1st theres the main topper, then i made a removable top plate on top that. the plate has 32 micro screws in it

so the basics is done for it. i figure i show you a before shot , tomorrow i will sand, prime and paint

That boom mechanism is wonderful!
The aluminum cabinet doors are also very smart looking.

Hi Joe

Is the Perch the tool that they spear through the air-frame and jet the fire suppressant directly into the hot-spots ??????

I presume that if the hot-spot was the row of seats you happened to be sitting at then by the time they have speared the air-frame you are going to be far from worried about getting jet blasted.

Will you be making up a mock airframe with a gas burner to practice hosing down with the Osh ?????

Looking fab
