Scania T420 Fire Truck 1/32 Scale Diecast Metal and Plastic Model by Automaxx
This Scania fire truck model at the 1/32 scale measures about 10.25 inches long from bumper to bumper, about 3 inches wide and 3.5 inches from ground to the top of the cab and about 5.25 inches from the ground to the highest point of the basket.
The cab is made of diecast metal, everything else is made of plastic. The doors can open to reveal a detailed interior. The ladder on top has a very interesting locking mechanism that allows the ladder to keep a position/incline solidly, so be sure to know how it operates and avoid forcing the ladder down. The ladder itself can extend to be 28 inches long (I just did not take the photo because it was just too long). Lastly, the ladder assembly can rotate 360 degrees.
The wheels are made of rubber and they roll very smoothly, so be sure of where you display this model because if you display it in a less than flat/level surface, it might roll away (and it won't survive a fall).
A very nice detail/feature on this particular model is that, just like the real thing, supports can be extended from the sides of the truck to make the support points of the truck wider and once extended to the sides, another part can be extended to the downward direction so that it can touch the floor/ground.
This model is really nice, the details and the coloring are very accurate, and the details found on the ladder assembly and the extended support points are very interesting to show/display.
Keep in mind that these models are really not toys. They are made mainly to be realistic and to be displayed. If played with they will not last long.
