“Fiery” was my second instalment of T&J models and completed early to mid 2015. Trying not to be politically incorrect, she is not a real red-head but more so a blonde and if you saw all the mistakes I made on it you’d not be surprised at her choice of hair colour.
It was a fun build and I still get a kick out of extending the ladder and swinging it around just to appease the whims of curious friends/guests/visitors, however, I do get upset when they try to climb onto the last top rung…
I had to extend my general house insurance for fear of accidents.
For all the international visitors, here in Australia CFA is an acronym for Country Fire Authority so I took great pleasure in creating the sign for the side of Fiery reading Churchill Fire Authority (you’ll know what I mean when you check out then township in my address).
One of the most glaring mistakes was the placement of the holes in the from wheels’ hub (right through the tyres… rendering them useless tires). I had to put up with that abusive placement of the holes and for over 2 weeks I closed my eyes every time I walked past “Fiery” until I could order, re-engineer and mount the replacement wheels. She was then ready for the catwalk (bar-table). Compare the picture below with the CFA one above.
Ouch, it still hurts to remember. No wonder it always had a puncture in the front.
