Lego – 6480 – Classic Town – Fire – Hook and Ladder – Light & Sound

I always wanted a Light & Sound set when I was a Kid. There were are space sets, and the 3 I loved. Those being a Fire Truck, Police Truck and Construction Crew. Browsing BrickLink I spied a cheap Fire Truck, the Hook and Ladder set, 6480, cheap. I had to have it. It’s a decent size truck, contains a single Classic Minifig with Grey Air tanks, a few tools being the:

  • Radio
  • Axe
  • Shovel
  • Broom

It also contains a small pumper trailer and a Ladder. I modded mine slightly by changing the windscreen to the Light Blue Tinted version of the vertical screen. The Electrics all work, powered by a single 9Volt Battery. The lights either Flash alternatively or stay on constant (depending on the way you fit the light bar) and there is a few options by twisting the black dial from lights only, lights and siren, and lights and alternative siren. The kit comes with optional covers for the lights being 2 x blue, 2 x red, 2 x yellow, plus a spare 4×2 and 8×2 white electrical plate as a spare for your own creations.

 

I shot a series of photos of the kit being built, whilst not perfect, It’ll do for now.

Lego Inventory and Brick Sales

I recently dug out the Massive box of Lego from my Youth. Whilst its depressing to see the ‘heavily played with’ state of a lot of the bricks, it does bring a flood of memories back of my childhood. I have started sorting the bricks in an attempt to rebuild all my old sets. Carting lego around the world and many moves has meant quite a few bricks are missing and replacements are needed. Instructions at also long gone. The task was made easiy by producing an inventory on the BrickLink site and then linking directly into the Brick Sales to purchased the missing parts.

World of Bricks produces a lot of Instructions, particularly sorted by year.
