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.

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.

Overall Corgi did a fine job with this model and I am proud to display this fine model. I rate this model to be a 5 out of 5. I am Happy to collect with Corgi and will continue to collect Corgi.
