Scale I Build

  1. Lessee . . . car? No. Big rig? Not really. Pickup? No. Hot Rod?/Street Rod? Yeah, sorta. But those go under 'cars.' Light Commercial? Sure, why not? It rides on a 1-ton chassis. So, Light Commercial it is! Ladies and Gents, Please allow me to introduce AlumaPumpa. She was born from an unmanageable imagination and a little too much Fat Tire. See, I got to wondering, "What if Boyd Coddington built fire trucks?" So, a Testors AlumaCoupe kit and a Monogram Mack Backdraft Fire Engine kit walk into a bar, proceed to get dizzy with the MEK fumes, and engage in an intense, deeply lusty relationship that results in AlumaPumpa. Oh, just to keep the kink going, there's rolling stock from an AMT C3500 snapper in there, too. A couple of words about the colors: Most fire trucks are red. A few are orange. A lot are yellow. And a whole passel of 'em are "Federal Safety Yellow" (Which most real firemen refer to as 'Baby S--- Green' . . . and it's not puke.) I went back and forth as to what color to paint AlumaPumpa. I'm a traditionalist, so red was in there! But, you can't argue with the impact of a yellow hot rod. And there was no ignoring the fed yellow. Because I couldn't win an argument with myself, I compromised. I decided to do a fade from yellow to fed baby pp yellergreen, and overlay some red to orange fade flames. This is what happened, and that's how it happened. (That's my story and I'm sticking to it.) Just having a little fun. I dug out my saw, MEK, and beer goggles . . . That's all folks! It's The End. Hope you enjoy . . . at least a little bit.
