The wonderful people at TWH Collectibles have just released this to the press:
TWH Collectibles, in partnership with Pierce® Manufacturing, announced today the debut of a 1:50 scale diecast Pierce Stock Unit replica. Engine 1 is the first release in a program designed to mimic actual Pierce stock unit production. The first engine will feature a Quantum® chassis and pumper body configuration in a distinct all red decoration.
“The intent of the Pierce Stock Unit Program is to strengthen relationships with Pierce customers and dealers, while honoring dedicated fire department,” said Cortney Krueger, Marketing Communications Manager, TWH Collectibles. “A generic, Pierce branded model satisfies the marketing and gifting demands of customers and dealers, as well as captures the essence and superior design of Pierce Manufacturing.”
Functions and features of Engine 1 include a pivoting and opening cab that reveals a detailed diesel engine and transmission, steerable front wheels, work and safety lighting, functioning suspension, frame mounted fuel tank and detailed inner cab with instrument panel.
"TWH model fire replicas are great mementos for our customers and enhance their Pierce experience," said Travis Groves, Marketing Representative at Pierce Manufacturing.These will be available at 3000toys.com for shipment tomorrow (Thursday, Aug 26th). Click here to order!
