the pumper body would be very simple to do, its getting the seagrave cab done right, that would be the biggest problem.DisapproveDisapproveMAYBE, i can adapt my old BIGFOOT frame to the cameo? how cool would that be. this is all your fault now ron when i'm in my model room now all weekendWinkWinkWink( so thanksTongue)

not to my knowledge, but just to look at it , maybe an old ford , or dodge truck from the 40's or 50's may work???? i mean you could get something CLOSE, i still think it would be bad no matter what you used to do itSmileSmile

there is a kit out right now of a '49 (?) chevy , i believe its from amt, and its a snap kit, that may be a good substitute for the seagrave, i seen it at hobby lobby on monday when i picked up your kit, and this thread ran thru my mind. it was kind of funny, cause the wife was with me, and i seen that kit and was just standing there looking into space, she goes, what are you doing? ...huh... oh , i was just thinking about something. seems i always have modeling on my mindWinkTongueTongueBig Smile

your welcome you may need to slop the grill abit more and cut out the fenders wells some. it looks like they moved the fenders up some. closer to the top of the hood. man theres no room for wheel travel on that truck is there.

yea huck , your sure right. that would not be an easy thing to drive .. with some modifacations i'm sure that this truck could be built. i would like to try it, i have an old big foot model sitting around collecting dust, so the wheels and tires , and maybe some of the frame is there, i could scratchbuild the pumper body easy enough. thanks for the ideasThumbs UpThumbs UpThumbs Up

Hey guys, check out this auction for a resin 1964 Mack B firetruck cab. I know this isn't what you want, but contact the seller as he may have the Seagrave you're looking to build.

http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&category=2585&item=3165263092

This guy has many truck cabs and kits to sell that would make great fire vehicles.
