Fire Brigade Models 1/50 Aerial Platform Ladder

cat no. FBM95.

This is by far the best of the modern fire appliances reviewed this month, but it still relies heavily on large areas of transfers, which are vulnerable. The casting of the cab and the snorkel cum-ladder unit is good, though there's still room for finer adjustments.

A good effort but expensive (kit = £123, and ready built = £213)

RATING: 7 /10
