1930's Fire Engine. (Or cereal packet nonsense in Red.)
« on: March 14, 2019, 08:54:04 PM »
I'm spending my spare moments revisiting/remaking old ideas.As I need to get my 'eye in' for a new cunning plan in April.
This time it's the idea of a Pulp friendly fire engine .
Pretty much stumped as to what else I can add ,other than here's some pictures .

A fire engine made from paper would be a risky ride for the fire fighters, I guess...  :D
Excellent job! I love it.  :-*

I don't see an issue as long as the fire stays below 451F.  ;)

Marvellous work, and the ladder in particular must be one of your finest pieces to date.

That is an impressive build and paintjob, and lacks only a faithful hound/mascot (dalmatian, or other). Great stuff!

I'm glad you like it.
It is pushing it a bit by calling it a 1930's engine. As its actually a 50's one .Hower it just looks more In keeping with the look of the table I'm slowly putting together (emphasis on the slowly ::) )
Chris.
The ladder was surprisingly easy
Literally everything went right first touch. ( the Windows fought back every step of the way.)
It's been useful a test/ refresher piece. As I'm about half way through a master for a Morris commercial F fire engine.( TSG butterfly logic; I'll make a card fire engine - needs a crew- I'll do a crew - might as well double check the uniform- Google-30's pics - oooh Shiny- sidetracked-halfway through master.Couldn't just stick to a card one and say job done. Next project . no i turn it into a saga. ;D)
Was very tempted to do a 'F 451'number plate. But the logic nearly kicked in and I'd have got sidetracked building book bonfires ! Then flame throwers...
Oooh there might be game in that!
