On the basis of the turntable ladder chassis, I had remade all the components for the TLF 24-50 for the tool shop, Revell received drawings from the Ziegler company. In order to be able to develop an exact model, I also drove to the Nottulen fire brigade and photographed their TLF 24/50 there.
For the toy fair in Nuremberg I had built a hand sample, the finished model is on the left. Then it was on to the production of parts for the tool shop at Heljan. The Danes then developed the TLF 24/50 as a CAD product using photos, drawings and the components mentioned above.
I have no idea who the man from the Nottulner fire brigade is in this photo. It’s been a long time, but it was he who showed me the vehicle and I asked him a few questions about it.
Months later, when the kit was ready, I went to Nottuln again and gave him some TLF 24/50 kits as a thank you for his kind support.
