This is my 2017 fire engine I named "Engine 7". It's an attempt to design a Lego fire truck that looks more like a real American fire engine, but not so real that it no longer looks like it could blend well with the Lego City System. It is scaled so that it will fit in a typical Lego fire station, and can house a driver in the cab and up to 3 firefighters on the rear deck, as long as they hold on to the horizontal handle.
The truck also includes:
1) a hose reel
2) 2 storage cabinets on the driver side rear
3) one cabinet on the rear deck towards the bottom
4) one cabinet on the passenger side under the ladder that fits an axe
5) a storage cabinet in the hose bed that opens upward with the gray handle
6) 2 fire extinguishers, each located on the pump control deck on either side
7) a ground ladder
8) Hooks in the cab to hold a flashlight, walkie-talkie, and extra airpack.
9) deck gun that spins side to side and up and down (with friction so it will stay in place)
The intent of this engine was to develop one that a child could buy and add to their fleet and house in their station, and it looks more like one that they see in real life (the design is based on a 1997 Pierce Saber I saw online that I liked a lot).
