I believe it is 1/24th as the figure at the hydrant is from the chevette kit. We had plans to do a Smith Miller B Mack swab like rescue with all the bells and whistles but we never got it off the blueprints, We planned on building in brass :)
If I'm not mistaken the cab of this unit is a Tom Showers cab.

Hello
I am new to the scale firehouse and getting back into building emergency models again.
I will be doing a Revell Gmc Snowplow kit with a utility box added to make a 1/25 scale
rescue truck that was used by the Wood County Rescue Squad back in 1985 - 1996 .
I was a member of the department in 1995 to 2003 until the department was combined with another station,
and this was the rescue truck that I started on. In 1996 we got a new rig but I have been wanting to do this truck
and finally found the box to build it. I will be posting pics soon as well as one of the actual truck.
Jim

here is the photo of the rescue truck I plan on doing ,

From Parkersburg, WV a 1985 GMC chassis with a custom box that was used for many years at Wood County Emergency
Services. The box was refitted in 1996 to a new Chevy cab and chassis and is still in service at EastWood Volunteer Fire Department as there first responder unit.
