Fire Scouter

Fire Scouter - OverviewHere’s a little vehicle I like to call a Fire Scouter!  The idea behind it is that the Fire Chief or another veteran firefighter takes this vehicle to the site of a fire, getting there faster than the trucks.  The Chief can then assess the situation and determine things before the rest of the crew gets there, like where the trucks should position themselves, what kind of tactics they should use, and anything they need to prioritize such as people that might be in danger.

Coming in at 124 pieces, this zippy little buggy was born of my desire to use in conjunction Part 18974, a unique mudguard/wheel well piece, and Part 74321, a wheel axle piece with springs.  Part 74321 comes only in red, and the idea to use them on a firefighting vehicle came to me right away.
