Always Prepared and Ready.
Frankfurt Airport Station*2.
In this diarama we have a typical airport fire station and crash rescue vehicles at the ready out on the apron.
The model fire station was originally a typical works vehicle garage and made by the German company Kibri.Its been totally converted to house all these airport models in HO size I've had for many years hidden away.The model has actually been recently released again by Kibri and is now made to look like a 5-bay fire station.
The German model in the foreground is a Panther 6x6(Rosenbauer)crash tender by Wiking(Crash*6),and from left to right behind is a Simba 8x8 Rosenbauer by a company called Ritter(Crash*1),and next we have 2 MAN FLF Mamba crash tenders by the Austrian company called Roco(Crash*2 and Crash*3).The domestic fire engine(Crash*4)on station is a Mercedes/Ziegler water tender/rescue unit that responds to all domestic fires and first-aid response incidents within the airport boundaries and this model is from the Herpa HO collection and made in Germany.
And last,the Mercedes/Benz and BMW X5 Officers vehicles are from the Joy City range of HO emergency vehicles and made in Germany.
Well,from the present day Germany we next turn the clocks back some fourty years and travel back into the old East Germany and the GDR(German Democratic Republic).
