FDNY ATRV 11 "UPDATE/LOWERED"
Hey my friends, today I present you my newest rig, the 2015 Ford F-550 KME FDNY ATRV 11(All Terrain Response Vehicle). This one is based on the real ATRV 329 which is E-329's second piece. Because of that its not a exact replica (some details are missing) I decided to number it as fictional E-11. In real it carries hoses in a three section hose bed, rescue equipment, a stokes basket, a ground ladder, a deck gun and is used to access areas of far southeaster Queens (e.g. Breezy Point) where a normal apparatus may not be able to respond due to the narrow, sandy/dirt streets that make up the neighborhood. My model has a three section hose bed and carries most of the equipment the real deal has, except the stuff in the compartments. Hope you like this new unit. Always wanted to do this one and I'm very happy with the outcome.
About this creation
After a nearly complete rebuilding process I'm able to show you a much lower body of this nice rig + a winch and additional lights on the bumper. Hope you like it.








A new detail: tried do design a new grill for the F-550. Made of two 1x3 tiles connected to two plates, modified 1 x 2 with clip horizontal on end which are mounted between the mudguards.






Of course with reflective decals as usual :)


Sometimes the good ideas come a bit later. Here the update, designed a new stokes basket.




And the real one. Credit to THEMAJESTIRIUM1 on Youtube https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CPYTB-JFyzU

I liked the lifted look too but it wasn't like on the real one. So I had to change that. Now the pump operator can reach the pump panel without the need of a ladder XD Thank you so very much for your big compliment and really nice comment my brother! Happy you enjoyed this one.

Well my brother I have studied this ATRV 11 of yours. And I have this to say I loved the look of the lifted rig. it was really a cool looking rig and I can see needing to have the big wheel and tires under this type of rig. Very cool looking but totally impractical. since your pump operator would have to be the size of a starting NBA center to stand flat footed on the ground and operate the pump. LOL. Being the true LEGO master craftsman that you are you found a workable solution which yielded maximum results. A magnificent re creation of an FDNY unit in LEGO form. The stokes basket is amazing and there is nothing about this rig that I don't love. BOAJDTAPx2 my brother.

The reason for the higher/lower chassis is the fact that I built it first with lifted chassis but I got some suggestions that this version is too high. So I was thinking and thinking and thinking how to get it lowered without using smaller tires. The result is that I rebuilt the whole thing and lowered the chassis. So you see both versions, on the first two pics (incl main pic) the new lowered and on the other pics the old lifted version. Thank you very much for your nice comment and I agree with you. Please Lego do some new compartment parts ;)

Very nice. The proportions on this aren't quite as good as your other rigs, but I realize you're limited by Lego's part offerings. I'm curious why in some photos the chassis is raised higher over the wheels than others. The only improvements would be to make the compartments working, but we really need to start lobbying Lego to make a wider selection of compartments and in more colors. (Dear Lego, please start with a 4 wide, 2 tall lift door compartment to match the 4x4 ones.)

Henrik my friend, thank you very much for stopping by again ;) I'm glad you like the new design (I like it too) but I never used SC mudguards. No part was harmed in any way except the red paint on the four technic parts XD Everything is original Lego. I used those mudguards now http://brickset.com/parts/6170505

Ahh, that`s really so much better my friend! Everything looks more cohesive, now the body has been married with the chassis :-) Did you sand off the corners of the SC mudguards to make them fit?

Henrik my friend, thank you very much for your words on this rig, both the good and the not so good XD Yeah I know it's way higher than the real one but had no choice because of the wheel size. The smaller wheels looked not right so I decided to lift the whole thing. I still like it but if I figure out how the get the style better with smaller wheels, I'll try ;)

I`m sure you`ve put all your effort in this new Fire engine, and all the detailing, decals and presentation is top notch as we are used to, but like Niels van den Brink I`m not a fan of the extreme high chassis, I definitely prefer the normal height.

Yeah I know and understand your statement my friend. No problem. It's a very unique rig and was hard to get all the details done. So I had to make a compromise between design and detail. But I'm a big fan of lifted pickup trucks so I have no problem with this one XD. Thank you very much for your kind and straight comment. :)

Hey mate, I try to explain with links to bricklink. Put two of those tires https://www.bricklink.com/v2/catalog/catalogitem.page?P=61254#T=C onto this rim https://www.bricklink.com/v2/catalog/catalogitem.page?P=55982#T=C and as hubcab I used this part https://www.bricklink.com/v2/catalog/catalogitem.page?P=6589#T=C (red painted by myself). All assembled on a technic axle 7L. Thank you very much for your nice comment.

Compared to the real one you're right. But the wheels don't fit into those mudguards and the former wheels looked too small and had not the nice rim design. So as compromise I lifted the whole body. Like I said in the description, this one is no exact replica of the real one. Thank you very much for your nice comment mate :) Glad you like it. :)

The vehicle body is awesome, great detail and design. I think that the vehicle body sits to high off of the wheel base, compared to the real one.
