Modern style Fire Truck to fit in 10197 Fire Brigade?

Hi guys,
Totally new here so hellooooo, but you may realise that from the terminology!
I own set #10197 and love it so much but wondered if Lego had done a fire truck of a more modern look to go in it and to scale?

I have seen some awesome custom ones but does anyone know of any that would fit and look right with this set?

Cheers!

    If you're looking for an actual set, #60002 should work.

    Set 60002 is too big I'm afraid!

    Ah, sorry, I forgot the wheels protrude.

    Its the ladder on the top makes it too tall for the station and also think its too long aswell

    Thanks guys, I just thought that this set doesn't look very American like the station does??

    ^ i think it looks similar enough to an old antique fire truck. check out this one:

    many American fire systems still keep vintage trucks around around for shows, parades, etc.

    ^I agree. I don't think Lego is trying to do Ultra Modern with their Modular line anyway.

    it's definitely been a weird mix. Before PC I felt like they were all ~100 year old buildings, but in the current date setting - interiors, people, decor, etc all conveyed a modern look inside an older downtown-style architecture.

    But Palace Cinema really broke that mold as the screen, movie playing, limo, cinema worker, etc all look more like they would be at home in a vintage Hollywood time setting, not the current one.

    I mean it's gorgeous stuff - don't get me wrong but I thought Lego may have produced an American style fire truck regardless- even if it didn't fit.

    I thought the same - old buildings in modern world, though the FB threw me because the old-time engine implies a 1930's scene, while the ping pong table implies at least 1950's and the (heaven forbid!) women firefighters imply at least what, 1990's?

    I'm just going to chalk it up that they are anachronistic if only to appeal to a wide range of ages and tastes. I will admit, if it were a modern fire engine, I would like the set less overall.

    I guess what we are saying is that the truck included in #10197 *IS* an American style truck!

    I believe the OP is looking for something both American-style and modern. And really, there aren't any sets that fit this. #60002 is close, but the typical American pumper doesn't have a ladder on top.

    How about #7239? Will that fit in FB?
  • dougtsdougts Oregon, USAMember Posts: 4,129
    ^ certainly not the trailer. the truck might, but it would be close

    Sorry guys, to clarify, I did mean a modern American pumper to fit in the 10197 building. The old one is ace, but just wanted a modern one too.
