A scale model 1914 Seagrave city service truck. After leaving the Army and returning to the US, John made this service truck in 1970. It would be his last basswood and Bristol Board model. The ladders are basswood with wire rungs, and the gold pin stripping was cut from a larger decal.

John Ackerman has been building and collecting miniature fire apparatus since he was 6 years old. His exhibits document the progression as a model builder from his earliest works through some of his most recent projects.
