    I built this using the middle truck in my previous fire truck post above.I need to strech the trailer and hopefully find a better looking ladder (or spend some serious time on this ladder)

    Nuther one,This is going to be my HazMat truck when done.The rear compartment is scratchbuilt.

    They look MUCH better then the previous Malibu offerings, and are only $4 a piece. They have more then that, I just cannot think of them off hand.

    Me and my plow drivers made a lot of money in that first snow of the season. It would be great if buisseness was this good all winter. I now have some pics of later that day when we hauled away the snow in preperation for the next snow. The first picture is of the snow pile and the rest are of the first truckload we hauled away.​
