New Matchbox Pierce pumper-DFW E-14

Just seen on the Matchbox Collectors Community Hall that the second Pierce Dash pumper is coming out soon, lettered for Dallas-Fort Worth Airport Engine 14. It's white-over-lime yellow and the windows are clear this time, as is the lightbar. Wheels are the same, though.

Some over at another board are reporting that these are now showing up in some Wal-Marts.

I read, too, that a solid red one will be coming out soon as well. Didn't say from what department, though.

Re: New Matchbox Pierce pumper-DFW E-14

Solid red one is supposed to be marked for San Diego.

Any idea if the DFW runs a pierce as Engine 14? I know El Segunda E31 was based on a real rig--and having seen the pictures of the real one, MB did a GREAT job!

John A, Did a little looking and found these sites. The last one is from Dallas-Fort Worth Fire Equip News.

It has TAK-4, Frontal Airbags, Side Roll Protection, 750 water with a 1500 gpm PUC Pump with pump and roll, an Elkhart front turret, Husky foam and Hercules CAFS, Harrison 10KW generator and lights, etc. Thanks to Travis at Martin Fire Apparatus
