Great Balls Of Fire

I don’t know what else to say about this MOC by vitreolum except that one thing you should not underestimate when it comes to pianos is fire safety. Clearly this gentleman did to disastrous results. I don’t know if he just had his nerves shook and brain rattled, nor do I know if it was purely the friction of the hammers on the strings or if an accelerant was involved, but this piano will never be the same, and that’s just a shame.

Bickle Seagrave Fire Truck

Since humans got smart enough to build houses, we've been dumb enough to set them on fire. And going way, way back we've had groups of brave individuals willing to risk their lives to combat those fires. Eventually we built vehicles to help with the task, like this fire truck from the oldest fire apparatus manufacturer in America, Bickle Seagrave. Builder Nouvilas does this classic justice in this build.

The Afterburner

This month's LUGnuts challenge has certainly been eventful. It's not hard to imagine why since it's the 100th (!) and they're doing it up right. Builder Moritz drew "fire engine" and as you can see, he ran with it. Inspired by FDNY's iconic lime green engines, this beast looks as capable as starting as many fires as it puts out, but it would certainly be awesome to see in action.
