In 1995 Pierce Mfg. shocked the fire community with a huge new cab, it had folding steps, 10 man cab, extended nose and didn't look like any other fire truck cab on the market and in 2005 it got a 2nd generation cab which is still being manufactured today and for the forseeable future.
I'm obviously talking about the Pierce Quantum.
It's a personal favorite of both Michael and myself, so it was kind of obvious to do a special about this magnificent cab in Lego as many talented builders have created many variations of this cab.
I have tried to make a complete history of the Lego Quantum, if I forgot to add someone or something, please use the contact form and we will rectify it as soon as possible.
I hope you enjoy the read and hope you'll have a few memories, or learn a little about the LFC history.
The Quantum in lego had a difficult start, I personally had major troubles with it when I attempted the cab back in 2008, and I remember more builders had this problem.
Then there was the perfect Quantum cab built by the legendary Bob K. of Lego Twp. Fire Department.
And in 2009 he posted a tutorial of his 2nd Generation Quantum cab and it took off.
Another legendary builder, Paul B. had designed the LFC's first 1st Generation Quantum.
In 2012 Bob upgraded the cab after being inspired by a detailed 8 wide Quantum by Brian Santis.
Over the years the Quantum has been upgraded, and changed by many talented builders, and is still going strong, and will do so for the next years to come.
Personally I hope this sparks some inspiration to our younger builders, and see a whole new generation of Lego built Quantums in the coming time.
This was the first special featurette, I hope you all enjoyed the read, and the pictures.
I want to thank everyone who took the time to send pictures of their rigs, it was fun to see Quantums from every part of the LFC.
As a bonus though, I've added the only LDD pic that Michael and myself found worthy enough to make it to the Blog.
Thank you for the effort, and laugh, shout out to our own Paulo R for sending a LSD trip, multicolor Quantum.
