Welcome, Jonas.

As far as I know, the Ward cab is still available.

Welcome to the club, What would we do without squad 51?

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?

Where are you getting the decals from?

What can you tell us about your avatar photo? That looks like an interesting truck. Is it Swedish?

I've a contact in Finnland who's helping me with that.

The avatar- truck is a german built trailer unit from 1967, who served in Malmö, Sweden. The truck was namned "Northern Europes biggest fire truck". This Magirus unit was in service until 1980. I've more pics home in the computer so you have to wait for real pics.

You can always check my homepage. I've built it in scale 1:43.

Very well done on the Squad.

That Deutz is big! It's quite unique, too. I'm guessing that Brandkår means Fire Department?

Thank you, Jim!

Hope the decals comes soon. As soon as I find the Ward Lafrance cab I will start the project. Perhaps in future the open Crown engine 51 will join this family.

Happy Eastern all!

And yes, Brandkår stands for Fire department.

Malmö had also a really cool Magirus crane from 1969. It could lift at least 20 ton. Out of service 1995.

Pic from 1971.

P.s Also take a look at the International H ambulance from 1967. One of many... Many...
