            The San Diego Pierce Velocity (finally, they painted the platform, which was left blank on the Roanoke issue) looks great, as does the Terrastar street sweeper. I think the livery on the Workstar is over the top. Thus, pegwarmer material.

            The line needs more variety. So far, the Pierce Velocity (in three recolors) and Scania mobile command center (only new casting) are all that have been made in terms of emergency vehicles. I wonder if the Pierce Quantum and Colet Jaguar are still available for use? I know the old bulldozer (while my favorite RWR that was ever done) is way too heavy to be done today.

              The San Diego Piece Velocity will go nicely with the Pierce Quantum they did a few years ago!

                I would also like to see more variety in the RWR for fire and emergency apparatus. For example a mid mount tower ladder, a snorkel, a smaller version of the tiller that they made a number of years ago, other companies that make fire apparatus now and then. Like Mack, American Lafrance, Ward Lafrance, Crown. They could really go crazy with this stuff. But I guess I'm just dreaming about all of this. For some reason they never made a mid mount ladder or tower ladder, they have everything else. I know this has nothing to do with the RWR range but I think it would be really cool to see Matchbox produce the LIBERTY MUTUAL commercial Insurance / Police car!!! Yellow and White with a blue light on top. Or Greenlight I suppose, but matchbox would be better because it would be much cheaper.

                  I'm looking forward to finding the Pierce Tower marked for San Diego, and it is great they added the paint and "San Diego Fire Rescue" to the ladder board this time!

                  I agree with others that it would be nice to see the Pierce Quantum Ladder of Colet CFR re-appear in the near future. I always thought the Colet should have been done in DFW livery to match the engine and hazard squad. Also what ever became of the E-One Field Comm unit?

                  A mid-mount tower or classic ladder truck or snorkel would be great for the line up, maybe a Mack CF / Aerialscope or Crown Snorkel. An ALF Century would rock also. I believe the Scania Field Comm is supposed to eventually appear in FD colors from a Gathering Report.

                  As for a Tiller, I hope as the new Convoy line grows that a TDA will appear in it. I dream of a true custom cab apparatus with an accurate trailer.
