Firetrucks are among my favorites. To be able to build something without taking the whole of my workshop with me, I finnaly gave in and promised myself this was going to be a build "straight from the box".

Disaster strikes. I usually spray a mat Tamiya and than a clear coat to get the shine. The grean did not get very even, so another coat, and when cleaning a little piece of dust the paint showed me that I didn't clean my model enough.

So, all set to get a nice deep bronze green gloss coat of paint.

Getting the fenders to shine gloss black was a mayor problem. I noticed the front of the bumper had spots. so I had to respray, but ended up spraying al black again. Now the paint has to be completly dry to do the top.

She's ready for paint here. Tyres are off for that. In fact the fenders are gloss black by now. On to the mayor color.

Than I felt there was something missing. The mercedes star is very tiny in this scale. You are not able to breath for a while. They wil fly!

It's nose didn't fit super, so I had an alternative route through the parts. It came out nice but has a gap at the bottom where the cap meets the chassis. Filled with a little strip of plasic it's gone.

It's summer, and it went with me on holiday. The masking of the windows is on, it's closed, but has some little things. ICM seems to have a construction methode that makes them seperate the roof where the rounding is most visible.

Earlier in autum I put the amazing chassis and the interiour together. Besides a dumb mistake where you have to fit the drive shaft through a hole where it never can't go through and cleaning up the spare, no mishaps. The interiour I choose is varnished wood. There is not much visible looking through the windows, so I kept it simple.
