Revell Fire Fighter
This is the original Revell Fire Fighter from 1962. The props and water monitors are “brass plated.” I originally built the model around 1979. Over the years, the white “yellowed” and looked terrible. I actually disassembled the model very carefully and re-painted everything on the superstructure and hull that were white. It was quite a project requiring a lot of care not to break anything. I was more than pleased with the results. I re-painted her with Trucolor white.
I just added a photo of 2 patches given to me by Marine 9 where the Fire Fighter was stationed. I actually got a personal tour of her in 1984. Note on the patch to the left the WTC in the background.
