This is my 36” long tiller, ladder firetruck It is based after Anchorage’s tiller firetruck. The ladder is a double extension reaching 36”. It also has a full interior in both the tractor and tiller. The ladder swivels on the same axis as the trailer so the platform on the tractor works in conjunction with the ladder.

Now that’s one first class toy ready for hours of fun, play and imagination. Well done sir!

Also I think I spied another on the top shelf.

Good eye! I started the smaller one some time ago it’s in an old blog. But as I was building the ladder it was getting difficult to make a small extension at that scale. As it went I used the main ladder from the smaller tiller as the extension ladder for this one. I will finish the smaller one soon because I made some ladder jigs but it will only be a single on the smaller.
