Fire engines are specifically designed to fight fires and often include a larger telescopic-ladder mounted on a turntable at the back of the truck's chassis. Most also include a water tank with an onboard pump, a fire hose, an aerial ladder and multiple ground ladders.
This amazingly detailed DIY model starts as a 5 x 8 square inch steel sheet and finishes as an amazing 3D model. Just use the easy to follow instructions to pop out the pieces, and bend the table, then connect them at the attachment points.
Most Metal Earth models take less than an hour to assemble, and on average measure about three inches long when completed. Each model averages 20+ pieces.
All can be assembled without any glue, although tweezers or needle nose pliers to bend the tabs will save you from sore fingers.
