A spotter's guide to drones: 3D printing, modelling and identification.
This kit consists of three models of contemporary military drones: the MQ-1 Predator, the RQ-170 Sentinel, and the RQ-4 Global Hawk. Human figures are included for scale. The kit was produced using 3D modelling software and desktop 3D printing technologies, with the assistance of Digital Fabrication Specialist Carlos Cruz. The kit is based on military and civilian recognition kits: collections of models used to train gunners, radar operators and visual observers.
Created as part of an artist in residence programme at the School of Visual Arts in New York.
