Finished the top of the light mast. Plastruct diamond tread plate on top. Front part of the lamps: Sanded lexan as glass surrounded by 0.5mm styrene strips with 24AWG wire as bars. Painted with primer -> gloss black -> TS-17.

This model looks like an ordinary toy. Did you make it yourself?:河马:

Thank you This is mostly home made.

The light mast and ladder both ended up a bit too wide, so I've very carefully cut out some support pieces to shrink the light mounts. I'm very happy with how the paint finish ended up on these.





Made a joystick and control panel for the cab interior.






The control panel / display is a box with a 3528 LED with a transparent plastic piece and reflective tape to spread out the light, and a sticker on the front.



The joystick paint doesn't look super clean in this shot, but it's tiny and looks fine in real life. For reference, the control panel is 14mm wide and the widest part of the joystick is about 5mm.

It's a bit rough, but I don't think I'll dive deeper into the details than this. Obviously missing a steering wheel and gear lever.

I'm no expert, but I believe the main joystick has all the relevant controls for the big monitor on the roof. The small stick would be the small monitor on the winch platform? The display / control panel shows info about and controls all the added functions on the truck, like emergency lights, flood lights, siren, pump, tank levels, and so on. In addition to that there would be a portable remote control for the winch and optional jet fighter rescue platform (which this truck does not have), which I have yet to model.

The dash panel sticker is mounted on a 0.5mm styrene plate which diffuses the light nicely, but that unfortunately means the turn signal indicators look lit even when off. Will have to fix that. The switches are painted with liquid chrome and white paint, but the next build I'll definitely add light boxes to the whole panel after seeing how good the hazard light switch accidentally looks as it's right on the border of the backlight for the gauge panel.

Hehe, knocking it out of the park mate. I think of this build whenever I see the local fire truck, same model I think in civilian red.
