Description

A modern day take on my scratch built model of the former fire HQ in Colchester Road, Ipswich.

I like to imagine, if the old place was still going strong, this is how the appliances might line up today.

All Volvo appliances have been scratch built by myself and I've tried to capture the exact appliances, most, maybe not all, are still in service.

Finally, I replaced the old style manually operated wooden doors, with some modern elecric style, up and over doors, based on those the real appliance bay had prior to closing.
