The newest Chicago fireboat is a unique design for the shallow rivers and restricted height bridges around the city. It is 90′ long, 25′ in beam, and only 16′ high with its mast folded down.
The hull is cast resin. The styrene superstructure is very easy to build. The interior of the bridge can be detailed. A built-up model is $299; the kit is $99. Available May 30: awaiting photo etched railings and basket, and decals.
