Hi again
Allow me to show my other recent completion, the ICM Ford Model TFire Truck in 1/24. Like the 250 Testarossa, this was built for the IPMS Car and Motorcycle SIG's Telford display and was my contribution to the Ford side of things. I don't know about you, but I've never seen a Model T fire engine before and it really appealed for some wacky reason. Turns out remarkably big as well.
Really enjoyable build with accurate fit and a deceptively strong finished structure - nice one ICM!
Largely straight forward build but painting took some planning with all that brass detailing. I alsotook this as an opportunity to try my hand at simulated wood-graining on the ladders and steering wheel using oils and Tamiya clear orange on a buff base. seems ok but I'll leave you to judge for yourselves. I'll keep working on that one.
Tamya Italian Red and Alclad Polished Brass are the primary colours used.
Sorry about the number of pics but there are so many interesting angles and details on this model that I wanted to share them all.Hope you like. Comment and critique welcome as ever!

Wondering if that kit might stand for cross kitting with the various AMT 'T' based custom cars I have. Their old Ford chassis has seen better days and as for the spoked wheels, ye gods!

Was it massively expensive?

it's just above the Sevens and in front of the big 7
Ian - no. not particularly expensive, around 25 now and there is a range of versions to choose from

Cheers all and thanks again!
