Yes, firefighters also have their day, it is May 4th, the feast of St. Florian, patron saint of firefighters. Models of firefighting equipment are also very popular among modellers, which you can find on websites from almost all authors.
The authors of the Bucobox and FDS models have managed to drive several hundreds if not thousands of kilometers in recent years and had the opportunity, thanks to the permission of the Presidium of the Fire and Rescue Corps of the Slovak Republic, but also the permission of the director of ÚO Brno - city and firefighters of Znojmo station to photograph firefighting equipment for documentation purposes to create models of fire engines.
Thanks to all this, we try to bring great models of firefighting equipment. Although the year 2020 was marked by the Covid-19 epidemic and we could not photograph other equipment for firefighters for security reasons, we reached into our archive and prepared a total of seven new models of firefighting equipment. Six of them serve directly for fire brigades and the seventh serve for the Armed Forces of the Slovak Army at Sliač Airport.
