Description
*IMPORTANT NOTE: This asset is part of a larger model set, “AIRBASE WITH UAV DRONES” by 3DConco (sold separately on Turbosquid, product #782622).

This is a tethered aerostat system of the type used for long-range airborne surveillance around a military base. The set includes the pressurized, helium-filled blimp with attached lower hull; cable tethers; mooring station (which articulates around its fixed base), and a human operator (overlapping-ball-jointed so all limbs can be articulated without the need for rigging; for reference, see our ball-jointed soldier model collection sold separately on Turbosquid by 3DConco).

Nearly all objects in the scene are texture mapped with a combination of specific and seamless textures. Both color maps and separate bump maps are used. (3DS and OBJ exports also use texture maps; DXF does not.) The majority of the maps are 1024x1024 pixels. All have been manually UV mapped and adjusted for good fit with minimized stretching.

Modeled to proper scale in meters using many reference photos and diagrams. For realism, nearly all texture maps have been generated from original photos of surfaces including aerostat fabric, painted metal surfaces, camouflage fabric, etc. Lights are also included (.max file only).
