Texas Air Tractor 802F - Fire Boss - Fire Protection Plane
Fire Protection Seaplane
About this creation
This is a Lego minifigure scale model of a Texas Air Tractor AT 802F which is a fire protection seaplane built over a standard Texas Air Tractor 802 frame. This MOC was created from the standard crop dusting version of AT 802[1] - the standard AT 802 crop duster was rebuilt so it could share a standard landing gear fitting with the Fire boss. This version differs from the real world plane in following ways:(1) the cockpit and (2) the pontoon/floats structural supports. Below is a real world photo of a Fire Boss.
I've tried to make the Lego model *swoopable* - that is - the Lego plane model can rapidly through the air without falling apart or becoming too heavy in the arm when playing with it.



I created this moc not just by looking at the drawings and technical data on the AT 802F but also by studying other attempts at making the AT 802F so I would like to thank all the other AFOL builders (especially for Zorko Huljic for submitted his AT 802F models to Lego Ideas) for sharing their works with me.[2].. my model does not have as much functionality or play value as I would like but its a start...

The functional elements are (1) spinning 5 blade propeller, (2) spinning pontoon landing gear wheels, (3)cockpit opens and closes and can fit one minfigure, and (4) adjustable pontoon rudders. In addition, Fire Boss *seaplane* options can be swapped out and replaced with regular crop duster landing gear. If you think something could be improved or is missing - leave a comment below and I will look into it. This model was originally began as a project for the Lego Air Command Group on Facebook.
