I spontaneously decided to rebuild my old E-10. So I disassembled the old one, removed all stickers and built the FDNY 2013 Seagrave Attacker High Pressure Pumper. It's packed with lots of details as usual and got a completely new designed pump panel on the drivers side. Another new detail is that I built it in three seperate sections, the cab, the pump panel and the body. The sections are fixed with technic pins. I hope you like this new truck my friends. Thank you for stopping by and leaving a nice comment.
I decided to go away from the outside pictures back to better pics with a neutral background. So I can do whatever I want without being dependent on things like weather conditions etc. I try to take new pics of my other FDNY rigs in this style.
Btw, pump panel and body is lowered one plate and the pump panel got a little update.

Hey Scott my friend, thank you so much for all your really kind words and your big compliment :) Glad you like it so much! Yeah, try it out. It adds so much detail to the pump panel. Got many new hands for the next ones XD
Wow, even after counting the studs, I can't believe this is a 6 wide truck! It is just packed full of details, I especially like the use of Minifig hands as levers, I totally need to try that sometime! All the mirrors and front detailing is also very nice. Epic man, just epic!
Not by choice is the worst part about all this. Hope they paid every single hour. But I can't understand the guys who let something like that happen. Unbelievable... 130 days without a day off... Sorry my brother but I'm shaking my head in disbelief and I feel sorry with you. But now to the good part. Thank you very very very very (did I say very?) much for your congrats and your really kind words Jimmie! It means a lot to me.
First let me say congrats on the blogs and on your new flickr page it is amazing. The new photo booth really shows the level of detail off on all of your incredible rigs. This rebuild of E10 is off the charts good. I love the new high pressure pump design it truly is one of the best operator panels yet created in LEGO. I watched the Brickvault video on Youtube YAY SVEN. BOAJDTAP my brother and have a great day. BTW I agree with you about working too much but believe me it is not by choice.
Hey Niels, thank you so much for mentioning. Saw the video and it's absolutely awesome! Joining Flickr was one of the best ideas. It's a lot of activity there and my E-10 reached over 2K views within a 24 hour period. WOW
Okay, I'll take a pic and send it to you. Thanks a lot my friend. I'll delete your last comment with your email then, so please don't wonder about. Btw, it's absolutely no trouble my friend but thanks again a lot!
Hi Per, I know that you live in Denmark ;) It's a beautiful country I visited several times. More the Bjerregard and Limfjord areas. Copenhagen is still on my to do list. If you have a email let me know and you'll get your picture ;) Thank you so much for your very nice comment my friend!
Hi Sven. This is another great build. Always amazed over the amount of details in these builds. I would have loved to see a picture of the 3 sections. Please, please?! Per. (BTW I live in Copenhagen, Denmark)
Nick my friend, that means a lot to me :) Thank you very much. I agree, sometimes the wheels others use are too small (IMHO) I personally the size shown here. Now every truck in my collection has those wheels.
Would be nice if you could leave more information for me. When do you need it? Which rig, which department etc. Thank you very much for your really nice comment Matt. If you able to, please leave your email adress. Thank you very much.
Hello Tobias, greets to you and your colleagues in Sweden :) It's a beautiful country I really would love to visit some time. I highly appreciate your big compiment and I'm very happy about your very kind words. Thank you so very much! With all the best wishes, Sven
Yes I agree with you my friend. It's a shame but the old E-10 looked no longer good because of yellowing parts and the paper stickers. That was one of the main reasons for tearing it apart. Thank you very very much for your kind words my friend. Glad you like it so much.
Reid my friend, this time without leaving a info on your youtube channel ;) Thank you very much for your really nice comment! I'm very happy about that you like the new rig and it's new details so much. Greets back to you and your family from me and my family :) Have a great start into the weekend.
I disagree a bit Niels. The pump panel has not the same height as the cab. It's a bit higher. Sometimes it's hard to get details 100% accurate compared to the real deal. http://www.fdnytenhouse.com/rigs/10engine/images/2013-12-12_007.jpg I always study all the details of the real rig and try to transfer them on my model design. I still appreciate your suggestion and your very nice comment my friend :) Thank you very much.
Henrik my friend, thank you very very much for your very nice comment. I also like the new dials (bought a lot of them to replace all the old ones). Found a lot of minifig hands in a old box and so the idea was born :)
Nice rig as always Sven! one thing though. the pump and the back of the rig are a little to high from the ground. they should be the same height as the cab. other then that you did a fantastic job again Sven!!
