LEGO released this set in 1975 in Europe, and in 1976 as 485 Fire Truck in the US. Having grown up with these old sets, I have a special place in my heart for these short-lived LEGO mini-figs. Although I enjoy the great designs of today, I miss how simple these models are.
I rendered this model with POV-Ray 3.7RC6 using hand placed code. I didn't use LDD, LDRAW or any other LEGO design tool. This model took a lot longer to create than I expected. POV-Ray spent three days tracing this model. It came out nice, but I need to put some time into speeding up the render.
