The set consists of 3 parts - a base plate, the main fire engine building and a control room that can fit atop the main building.
The set is made of plastic, which at the doors is very thin and somewhat subject to not being quite straight. The engine doors are also fixed and can't be moved up, which is a bit of a shame, especially as there is some internal detailing of the building.
As set up the building measures 10cm long, 3.5cm wide and about 2.75cm high. With the control room addable anywhere across the set you can make a couple of different looks and the set displays nicely alongside 400 scale Fire Engines. Shown here are a selection of Panda Models tenders I own.
I asked around and have been told these retailers will be stocking the fire house, although I don't know in what numbers or at what price:
Allairplaneiberica LLC USA
Sprue Brothers Models LLC
Fieweger Aviation Center Berlin
SMALL WORLDS TOKYO
It is a nice little set but not perhaps as nice as it could be if they'd had added more detail to the doors and made them moveable.
