I used to see Larry quite a bit when he lived here in the Raleigh area. The last time I stopped by to see him, some time ago, he had put the La France on the shelf and his attention was elsewhere.

Since then Larry has moved out of the area, I think somewhere in Maryland? And I've lost touch with him. I just checked and He hasn't logged in to Smokstak for two years.

Still, I too hope his attention returns to this project. His work is just fantastic an I too would like to see this project finished.

Check post 217 and see this project mostly complete, with only the pump to complete, I too hope Larry is still with us, but it dose not sound good , Can only hope for the best. Maybe Harry would know.

It's been almost a year since this post was brought up, but I still am curious as to what became of Larry and his beautiful scale model. Has anyone heard anything about him?

Several years ago, I acquired a partially-completed Coles fire engine. Since this item is nearly a basket case, I'm curious about others who may be building one at this time. Hopefully, I may be able to tap into their knowledge of how this thing goes back together. (?)
