ICM 1/24 Model T Fire Truck

Recommended Posts

Hi again

Allow me to show my other recent completion, the ICM Ford Model T Fire Truck in 1/24. Like the 250 Testarossa, this was built for the IPMS Car and Motorcycle SIG's Telford display and was my contribution to the Ford side of things. I don't know about you, but I've never seen a Model T fire engine before and it really appealed for some wacky reason.

Really enjoyable build with accurate fit and a deceptively strong finished structure - nice one ICM!

Largely straight forward build but painting took some planning with all that brass detailing. I also took this as an opportunity to try my hand at simulated wood-graining on the ladders and steering wheel using oils and Tamiya clear orange on a buff base. seems ok but I'll leave you to judge for yourselves. I'll keep working on that one.

Tamya Italian Red and Alclad Polished Brass are the primary colours used.

Sorry about the number of pics but there are so many interesting angles and details on this model that I wanted to share them all.Hope you like. Comment and critique welcome as ever!




















Thanks for looking.

Yep, I agree, and another cracking build Rick! Beautifully built & a really clean finish with some lovely detail work! And I think your wood efffects are excellent!


As my friend celt normally says - well tidy mun!! :)

nice execution of an infrequently seen vehicle. also nice to see something that is not "weathered into submission" as seems to be the current trend. the brass is just right - not too shiny and not to dull. the wood finishes look fine. the buttons & tufts on the seat might stand out if a light wash of umber were passed over.
