I just finished this engine today. I scratch built the entire body, and cab from styrene, as nobody makes a 1/25 scale Crown. These are what a fire engine should look like to me. This model represents LA County Engine 51 from the series Emergency in the early to mid 70's. This engine appeared in the first two seasons. I made patterns for the main parts of the cab so I can trace them out and make different Crowns in the future. I used various detail parts in white metal from AITM, and the front and rear ends and wheels from an AMT LaFrance pumper. I still need to find some decals for LA County fire apparatus. There are a lot of area I want to improve on the next one I build, but this is my favorite fire engine of all time.

Nice going there kid. Really cool model of the show truck. For the decals you might check with Jeff Halpin at www.policecarmodels.com as he may have them. He owns Chimneyville Decals now and they used to carry them.
