  • Here's the other yellow Oshkosh Crash Tender (the one also seen earlier with a snubnose snozzle) with the long pierce lance (both would seem an appropriate name for this T-3000 Snozzle):

    The Sky Harbor (Phoenix, AZ) airport livery is wonderful in my opinion.

    And the two mellow yellow together (anyone know if the different liveries ever had the other boom...silver on the Sky Harbor and white on the LAX?)

    I only have one snubnose snozzle version...the TF Green one in a 5-pack. Now I've got a new hunt to pursue!

        the later versions have a solid unmovable nozzle
        do they move on these?

            Yes, the upper (long) arm pivots up, but none of them ever rotated. Seems the attachment to the model is a square peg in a square hole. I notice the snub-nose versions are the ones that do not have a movable arm; I guess the pointy ones, as your comment suggests, were made earlier before Maisto realized it would be cheaper to have it be one piece instead of two (just like Matchbox and pretty much every other maker of "3-inch" toys).

            At least the way the movable arm pivots is kinda realistic for how it might be used at the airport...even as big as ARFF are, the fuselage may be higher than the top of the fire truck, so to pierce the plane's body, it might be higher than the top of the truck.

              Majorette #258, a M-B 508D chassis with tank, pump and gigantic nozzle/deluge...

              Anybody know if this is based on an actual configuration of an airport fire engine? I haven't been able to find any photos of a 1:1 that looks anything like this at all.

              • Don't think we have seen any versions of this yet this month?

                      RMM resin HO-scale model of Oshkosh P15 in military olive drab (purchased as is online...not my build). In honor of Memorial Day.

                          By Cursor; diecast.

                          And, hey, it's basically the last week of the month (I have a commercially-printed (helicopter fire fighting) Air Attack calendar--printed in New Zealand for Air Attack Magazine that omitted May 31, but a week with only one day is not really a week, is it?)...so here's a shot with two Cursor models of the same vehicle in different liveries...

                          The flatcar-mounted model was purchased that way in Switzerland when I visited in the 90s.
