…You need a really big fire truck. A really big fire truck like this one, the enormous Pierce Arrow XT ‘Tiller Truck’ as used by the San Jose Fire Department.
This spectacular (and absolutely massive) replica of the Arrow XT has been built by Pavol Vanek of Flickr, and it’s one of the most impressive models that we’ve ever featured here at TLCB. Every detail of San Jose’s real truck has been captured brilliantly in Lego form, and Pavol’s model includes a wealth of functions too.
A tilting cab complete with a fully detailed six-seat interior sits above a working piston engine, the ladder can elevate, extend and turn – stabilised by functioning outriggers, both the tractor unit and trailer feature functioning steering, and every door, storage compartment and hatch opens.
Befittingly for such a humongous creation there’s a huge gallery of images available showing each aspect of the truck in greater detail – and we cannot recommend taking a look highly enough! Click this link to see more of Pavol’s incredible build, just prepare to be there a while!
