11/20/10 52 W, 1 I - + 6 - 4 Matchbox Hazard Squad


Just in time for holiday shopping is a new tooling in the Matchbox 1-75 range. Called the Hazard Squad, it's a generic custom-cab heavy rescue. A couple red versions have been released, as well as one lime-yellow in a five pack. Pretty good casting detail. Click to enlarge:
 





Got that. It’s a Pierce Quantum.
Oh, and that was WWP196 and R295 (canceled en route) on the I40 bus wreck yesterday.

Look closely, not a Pierce. Not licensed. Generic design.

True that, but it’s just different enough not to violate copyright laws. It’s pretty dern close in comparison to my Quantum ladder. And along with the yellow and black Dash engine of the same scale, is apparently the most common of the offerings. Have you gotten your black-over-red cab B. Comthax County Velocity aerial? I happened upon one at Tarzhay a couple weeks ago.

And speaking of what looks like a rescue truck, Pumpkin Center FD (the one in Lincolnton, not Jacksonville) was the lucky bidder for (former) Garner Rescue 881. I happened to see it westbound on I40 between Greensboro and Winston, which leads me to believe they took delivery yesterday.
