Magazine Review

As seen in Truck Model World Magazine, U.K. - November/December 2016, by Steven Downes. www.truckmodelworld.com

In 2015, the Fire Department of New York celebrated their 150 year anniversary and to commemorate the event, ladder 24 from Midtown Manhattan, a 2011 Ferrara Ultra HD-100 Rear mount ladder was replaced at the station on the 29th October 2014 by a new unit so it could be returned to the Ferrara workshop for a very special modification. With a new paint job consisting of metallic silver cab top and red body, a wrap depicting the silhouette of the New York City skyline representing the five boroughs was added to the sides and rear. The new truck was assigned to the ceremonial unit based at Fort Totten in Queens and was used for ceremonial purposes throughout 2015 in connection with the 150 year anniversary.

Fire Replicas has produced a stunning replica of the Ferrara Ultra HD-100 ladder with matching decoration which has accurately captured every aspect of the truck to perfection. Produced from high-de resin, stainless steel and other composites to achieve museum grade results, the model features a true-to-scale metal ladder with 0.6mm thick ladder sections, accurately finished with orange paint and anti-slip step coverings. The platform has raised safety grab rails with tiny chain links across the openings where steps are integrated into the rear body on the corners. The cabin interior has been finished although the decoration on the crew cab windows obscures a view of the interior. The front grill, made of photo-etch, captures the angular appearance of the truck with rectangular lights made from clear and tinted plastic framed within silver trim. Tiny handles are fitted to each of the panels and doors along the sides of the body and the upper surfaces have a fine raised texture.

For the decoration, the model is first painted in a base coat of silver for the cab top and red for the body before a full body wrap is applied depicting the five city boroughs. On top of this, over 100 decals are added by hand including the various slogans and FDNY markings while hand painting is used to pick out the smallest of details, something which must take a steady hand and plenty of patience, resulting in a replica which captures every single detail of the full sized truck. With each new addition to the Fire Replicas range, the bar is raised that little bit higher and for me, this is certainly one of their best releases to date.

About the #FDNY150

Deviating from the normal red and white cab and standard FDNY graphics, this special edition truck features a beautiful metallic silver cab top, silver leaf stripping and lettering, and a blue silhouette with white stars of the New York City skyline representing the five boroughs. Before respectfully taking the role of #FDNY150, this truck was Ladder 24. It served in Division 1 and shared its quarters with Engine 1 located at 142 West 31 ST and is near Madison Square Garden. In 3 years of service, Ladder 24 made over 9000 responses. The FDNY 100’ aerial ladders are built on the Ferrara Ultra custom chassis with a 3CR12 stainless steel split cab and feature a heavy duty stainless steel body, a quick 4-section 100’ rear mount ladder, and an 8kW hydraulic generator.

FDNY 150th ANNIVERSARY FERRARA LADDER TRUCK by Jack Lerch

A 2011 Ferrara Ultra Model 100 foot rearmount aerial had its appearance modified with a combination of new paint and wrap and was used during 2015 for ceremonial purposes in connection with the 150th Anniversary of the paid fire service in NYC in 1865. In the future, it will be used at various parades and FDNY events. It is being kept in its special appearance and is assigned to the Ceremonial Unit, a part of the Bureau of Training and located at that Unit’s quarters at Fort Totten in Queens, which is also the home of the FDNY EMS Academy. It will be operated, when needed, by the officers and firefighters detailed to the Ceremonial Unit.
The aerial, which carries registration number FL11005, is one of twenty similar Ferrara 100 foot Ultra model rearmounts delivered from late 2011 through mid 2012. Originally assigned to Ladder Company 24 in midtown Manhattan on November 8, 2011, it was replaced at that unit by a 2014 Ferrara 100 foot rearmount on October 29, 2014.

    This was a present for my son who is an avid fan of FDNY. He could not be happier with the show quality museum looking piece of fire apparatus. I will definitely return.
