My Code 3 Engine 79 Came Today!

My LA County Engine 79 Code 3 showed up at my doorstep today.

I was supposed to shoot the real Engine 79 on Tuesday, but it was in the shops with the pump panel removed. But I still got to see it in person. It is unique, since LA County doesn't have any engines on a Freightliner chasis, or commercial chasis. This engine was purchased as a prototype.

The model looks GREAT! Here is a photo. Sorry for the crappy shot, didn't have time to get a nice one.

On another note, this could be easily kitbashed into a White Plains engine.
