USFS Class C tankers of 1950-60s (3-12-18)

I would like to ask for info on building a USFS Class 3 forest fire tanker, c. 1956-64? I was a summer fire fighter to pay my way through college, and remember fondly driving a ’56 Chevy and ’64 Dodge Class 3 — which was just a 2T flatbed with a slip-on pumper/tool/open crew unit. Sounds hokey, but we were very effective: ‘back in the ‘day, when we actually put out the fires’! I’ve never done a truck or a fire rig before, tho I built my first car model about 1954 with dad, from the Gowland/Revell “Highway Pioneers” series. Wick Humble
