Instructions - Fire Truck Tender 2

I’ve been pretty busy with the layout recently (more on that soon!) so haven’t had too much time to work on instructions, but I’m slowly clearing some of the backlog now and the next build I want to share is my tender engine. Built in a similar style to complement the ladder truck, this model has storage galore and all the tools your crew will need!

As with the previous model, this uses a couple of chrome pieces from the 5599-1 Radio Control Racer set from 2001. Don’t worry if you don’t have them, they’re far from critical so you can replace with a normal bar with stop ring.

Again because of the limitations of Stud.io, I wasn’t able to wrap string round the reel for the hose. The nozzle is included to make the piece count accurate, but the “real life” version uses the same combined yellow nozzle and string piece as the ladder truck.

As always: gallery of images below or you can grab the PDF instructions here. Don’t forget all my instructions are also on Rebrickable. Thanks!
