This will be a progress log for my Mojave Border Patrol conversion.

Kind of faking it as I go. ;)

First up, the basic idea (subject to change) Ordered the new Body Yesterday, hopefully here within a week or so.

In the mean time I decided to cut some circulation vents in the decking behind the seats, not ready to figure out extra fans yet but we will see how this does.

Added some Window Screen to help keep debris out, lots of hot glue, shouldn't go anywhere. not super pretty, but you cant see it when it's all closed up.

Still need to order paint and new skid plates for the roof. Thinking of adding a light bar but not sure where I can put it where it wont get trashed, still a bit of a newbie. ;)

Cool build, looking forward to seeing it finished. How are you going to do the decals?
Thanks, I am lucky enough to have all the right equipment I need to print them at work. I am spoiled in that department. ;)

Very cool can’t wait to see the finished product.
Thanks, I'm looking forward to getting it going!

Thanks, I'm starting to get excited, trying not to let myself rush it and do something I can't undo. I have painted many an rc plane but not from the inside. ;)

Well, haven't had much progress yet, got most of my stickers printed, but I still need to mask off the body for painting. Real life has been getting in the way lately, but I promise there will be progress soon.

I decided I didn't want my border patrol drivers looking like they are race car drivers, I swapped them with some 1/6 scale action figure heads. Pretty good match size wise.
