Don Mills has been one of the top producers of hand-built, vintage Fire Apparatus and Commercial truck models since 1983. Don Mills’ name has been affiliated with some of the finest scale models and his products are highly sought after because of the workmanship and pride they exhibit. One of his first trucks sold on eBay for $750.00 in 2005. The original price was $75.00.
Don’s work has been featured in Toy Truck Magazine!
We have had numerous requests to produce a series of 1/48th scale hand-built trucks for Ringling Bros Barnum & Bailey Circus representing the Macks used by them in their last years under canvas which culminated in 1956. Ringling had a fleet of twelve Macks and our first effort will be one of the water trucks as shown here.
This piece shown is one I threw together a few years ago, the final product will feature much crisper and much more detail as well. These pieces will only be produced once, and will be retired when sold out. If demand warrants, we will produce a canvas truck and the #235 wrecker as well. Custom graphics have been developed and the bodies will all be scratch built out of styrene.
