693 Fire Engine

This fire truck from the seventies includes an original minifig.

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.
