Hello everyone my name is Andrew I am a local Volunteer in my hometown in New York for 5 years now . I just want to start off saying I enjoy looking at all your work here on this site I think its great and you all very talented! I've been building models since I was 16 building mostly military planes and helicopters I recently started doing armor pieces and military trucks, but I recently wanted to get into some apparatus pieces. so I started looking around online and stumbled on to your forum page here and was in awe of all your work ! especially the work on the Mack baker aerial scope models. I decided for my next project I wanted to replicate my fire departments recently retired 1989 Mack cf600 Baker 75ft Aerial Scope ladder truck. I was wondering if anyone here has any information , blue prints , spec sheets for the Mack ladder trucks any information would be greatly appreciated thank you for your time and I hope you have a great night !

Welcome to the House! Greg Smith who also posts here did a 1/25 scope years ago and his build was published in * the magazine that won't allow mentioning other sites * Magazine. Maybe he still has some info on what he did. Tim Bongard also did a how-to article for a 1/32 scale scope a number of years ago.
