That's a very good build Mike, not your usual subject. I'm curious - did you use glue to put it together and did you use tape? Can't tell from the pictures. I'm not asking to be a critic, as I said I'm just curious about how you put it together.

That looks real good, Michael.
Not sure what year the truck is but it looks like a classic.

As for what year, from the general styling, drum headlight and brass radiator would put it in the 1915-1925 range.

The high sides on the front seats would hinder a fireman from entering or leaving the vehicle.
Thus, it is probably not a model of an actual firetruck.
1915-1925 sounds right from the appearance.
Google "vintage fire truck" or "antique fire truck" for images.
At least one Model-T fire truck, did have high rounded sides on the front seat like Skip's fire truck.
