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.

Stars at night. You see them due to the light traveling from them. What you see is the stars past. If you are seeing a star that's 6,000 yrs ago. Imagine somebody on that star looking at us. They'd be seeing us as 6,000 yrs ago. Which of those two is now?

Rescue 19

Postby jshep26101 on Fri May 19, 2017 10:24 pm

This is my entry to group builds I used the Revell 77 GMC snowplow kit and a aftermarket utility bed. I made my own
decals to replicate the Wood County WV Rescue Squad truck used in the 80's till mid 90's then it was replaced with a
1997 GMC SILVERADO CAB remounted box. I had to stretch the chassis a little to line up wheel base in the back but it was pretty nice build up.going to add photos again later.

Does anyone else need more time? I'm traveling tomorrow and I can extend the due date to after Christmas if that helps you guys get your projects done.

Gary, keep us all posted. I'm looking forward to seeing your completed build.

I also want to thank everyone for participating this year. I learned a lot from everyone's builds, and really enjoyed the old builds that were shared in this thread.

For those that haven't finished their builds yet, I look forward to seeing your completed builds when you get them done.

I would like to say thank you but to be the winner just because others didn't have time to complete there models
I would like to share with the entire group on this one. I have seen a lot better models than those that I build on here.
I just enjoy building some simple projects to past time when I have the spare time to do it in. I am always impressed
by the detail on some of the other rigs in the display category and in progress section. I hope everyone
has a great new year and keep on building.

Jim,
I didn't choose your model because it was the only finished entry, I chose your Dodge Ram rescue model because you demonstrated a great progression in building techniques from the previous Chevy rescue.

So now you get to decide what the build topic will be for the 2018 group build and judge the finished entries.
