    I saw the real-life pics a few years back - looked 90% close to the CR/RID Prime firetruck.

    Was from a Japanese website, but now I can't find them.

    Would you post a link or picture if you have one?

    I must admit, that style of Fire Truck is rather wonky looking compared to most, but I can't say as I've ever seen one like that in real life. It would be neat to see though.

    Someone here posted pics of the real truck for UM a while back. Really cool looking. As for Ops, does't RID forever have a wallpaper with the real firetruck?

    Im looking for the pic (problem is that it was on a japanese site for firetrucks...) but it was spot on, not similar like others, it was the same

    As for Magnus, its supposed to be based on a Mercedes Benz truck, but no pics have surfaced yet, although some similar used in carnivals have been posted here

    I found this. It's a 3-D image, not the real thing. But it looks to be a modeling of the real thing.

    I thought he was a Nissan, but that one looks pretty much like him.

    thanks again Napjr.

    Anyone else have a pic? There's really only one good one from Nap's link

    I know I've seen about 5 good clear ones... didn't find anything with a bunch of searches...
