Review By: Joseph Bowman 

 Corgiís recent 2005 release of the Harrison, New York Seagrave K Pumper has been a great release. The detail is excellent from the lenses on the headlights to the tip end of the rear bumper. Corgi created a truly excellent piece.

When the Fed-Ex guy showed up at my door the excitement jolted through me like a bolt of lightning. I couldnít wait to open that package. I opened the package  and all I could say was wow.

 Corgi has done a magnificent job with this Harrison New York Pumper. Lets start with the front end of the pumper. The lights on the front of this pumper really give it some texture, the way they are designed makes them look so real with the clear colored headlights and its red see-through lights make the piece look really rich.

Besides the lights, the pumper has two fire extinguishers on the front bumper, also on the front, the pumper has a air horn and spot lights on the top of the cab. The front has a lot of detail even down to the bell on the passengers side, right under the side view mirror. The cab also has windshield wipers on the windshield and on the top of the cab five marker lights.

The sides have a lot of detail too leading from the bell all the way to the nozzle on the back bumper. Starting with the cab, the side of the cab has some detail including markings, hand bars, diamond plate step to the lug nuts on the wheel. Handle bars are located behind the door of both sides of the pumper. One small handle bar right next to the door and another that spans from almost the fender on the drivers side of the front tire over the top of the cab to the passengers side fender. There are markings on the doors on both sides that say: Engine & Hose CO. Volunteers, then behind the door in between the cab windows it reads: Harrison N.Y., then also below the rear cap window it says Engine 10. Next is the control panel. The control has some pretty nice detail, from the gauges to the controls, and on the passenger side a connection. Then next to the drivers side control panel you will see two black things called hydrant connection lines, below that are some cabinets. Then on the passengers side of the pumper there is a ladder and above that a hook, also on the rear bumper there is two nozzles for hose. On the passenger side you can see the exhaust sticking out a bit. The both sides of the rear side near the pumper has a marking that states: 10 (in red letters outlined in yellow).

Then we have the rear and the hose bed with much detail. On the rear and below the hose bed there are two cabinets on each side than in between them, there is a shelf. Then on the rear bumper, like I mentioned before, there are two nozzles on both sides of the bumper. There are two hand rails on each side of the hose bed. There is also a hand rail on both sides of the hose bed on the top that spans from the control panel all the way to the rear emergency lights. On the top is the hose bed and two hose reels. The hose bed has three sections with hose, then in between the hose bed and the hose reels there is a marking that has in black letters that say: E10. The two hose reels look like there is real hose on them. Basically all the hose on the pumper looks real.
