*NOTE: Be sure to check out our larger set, AIRBASE WITH UAV DRONES by 3DConco (sold separately on Turbosquid, product #782622).
This is a UAV airstrip with a 2-km-long (1.6-mile) runway, three UAV drones (MQ-1 Predator, MQ-9 Reaper, and MQ-19 Mongoose recon concept variant), mobile ground control station with pilot and internal consoles, an outside ground control station (under pop-up tent canopy), high-power communications antenna tower, hangars, fuel station, security fence, crew tent, and human models (humans are overlap-ball-jointed so all limbs can be articulated without the need for rigging). Includes sky dome, distant mountain mesh, modular terrain plates, modular runway plates, and plant life (billboards).
This set has been designed with maximized modularity for easy reconfiguration. Care has also been taken to maintain detail along with efficient scaling. Everything has been modeled for a balance between polygon efficiency and good 3D detail at close range.
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, FBX, 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 cement, tarmac, metal, painted surfaces, desert ground and plant life, etc. Lights and lens effects are also included (.max file only).
