Meet Brick Borough Tower 3-4! This beast is a 2016 Pierce Quantum 85' rear-mount platform. It has a 1500 gpm PUC pump, a Husky 3 Foam System, and a 500 gallon water tank. This truck also has a 6 k.W. Harrison Hydraulic generator to run its compliment of Hurst tools. This truck has a Whelen LED Warning Light Package, an FRC LED Scene Light Package, aerial run lighting, a full ladder compliment, and full height and full depth compartments. The bumper of this truck has four air horns and a Federal Q. This truck also has Powercall sirens. The cab is my Quantum design, with the SNOTed window design and lots of LED scene-lighting. The area above the pump with the crosslays is SNOTed. The PUC pump lies beneath it, and is quite simple with only two intakes, with a large one on one side, and a smaller one on the other. Behind that is a cabinet containing the other pumping apparatus. Behind that cabinet is the largest outrigger. From that to the rear outrigger, there are cabinets, containing anything from axes, hooks, pry bars, and halligans, to power saws and rescue gear. Then, as mentioned earlier, there is the rear outrigger, and then steps to access the turntable. Behind the steps there is the rear, with the compartment for the ground ladders, an arrow stick, rotators, a MARS light, and plenty of other lighting. The officer's side of the truck is practically same as the engineer's. Then, there is the ladder, which is huge. There are boards on either side of it where decals would be located (not guaranteed/ not likely). Then, in the bucket, there are some basic ventilation tools for opening up the roof on a fire building. There are two monitors on the bucket; one fog and the other is a Master Stream. This truck was something new I wanted to try--with the new color scheme and design--and I'm very very happy with it. It will soon be placed in service, and it is to be located at Station 4 with Engine 3-6 and Utility 3-2, beachside. *Note* This truck is 100% based off of Mount Horeb, Wisconsin's new tower: http://www.piercemfg.com/customers/new-deliveries/mount-horeb-area-joint-fire-district-aerial-29367

Quoting Lane Spyksma Very nicely done! I'm interested to know how you got the angles around the front axle.
Thanks Lane:D I did it by putting these http://www.terapeak.com/worth/new-lego-lot-of-8-dark-bluish-gray-1x2-handle-tile-pieces/272283669796/ in light gray on a black 6x4 plate, and then using some flats so it sat smooth. Then, I laid it upside-down on top of another flat plate and built around it from there. It comes out quite nicely.

Quoting Lane Spyksma Very nicely done! I'm interested to know how you got the angles around the front axle.
Thanks Lane:D I did it by putting 1x2 angled "clamp" pieces on a black 6x4 plate. I put flat tiles on that. Then, I put flat tiles on bricks over the wheelbase, and then I turned the 6x4 plate upside down on top of the flat tiles. Then, you build around it, and in my opinion it came out quite nice:D

Quoting Michael Parkinson Nice work on the Quantum! It definitely is a challenging vehicle to replicate. I would suggest raising the bumper by 1 plate; that way, it won't look like the front is uneven. Also, you can replace the bricks that should be under the door with a hinge brick to give you fold down steps! If you want pictures, I can provide you with some! Overall, this is a well-made truck! Awesome to see you grow as a builder!
Thanks Michael! I was going to add those hinge pieces but I fear that I don't have enough in the right colors. If I do, then I'll be sure to add them:D
