This is a model I designed for display inspired by the RQ-170 Sentinel (AKA Beast of Kandahar) Small Unmanned Aircraft System (SUAS, uav, drone, etc). This was done in collaboration with "Oranhunter", the guru of all things Blender. Thanks Steve!
It has a 17 inch wingspan and is 6 inches tall when sitting on it's stand. It's pretty solid, and comes in at 12 ounces total weight.
The stand has the modern USAF logo.. The wings feature interior fairings alongside the centerline. This is printed in gray, and the stand in silver. The print turns out so nice I don't feel the need to sand/paint it, but I certainly can if you want a flat white and smooth finish. If you order a raw print it will be printed in white. If you'd like another color combination or a custom stand, please use the "request custom order" button.
he Lockheed Martin RQ-170 Sentinel is an unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) developed by Lockheed Martin and operated by the United States Air Force (USAF) for the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA). While the USAF has released few details on the UAV's design or capabilities, defense analysts believe that it is a stealth aircraft fitted with aerial reconnaissance equipment.
RQ-170s have been reported to have operated in Afghanistan as part of Operation Enduring Freedom. It has been confirmed that the UAVs have operated over Pakistan and Iran; operations over Pakistan included sorties that collected intelligence before and during the operation which led to the death of Osama bin Laden in May 2011.
In December 2011, the Iranian armed forces captured an RQ-170 flying over Iran. The U.S. military has acknowledged losing an RQ-170 in the region. United States administration asked Iran to return the UAV. Iran denied the request and lodged a complaint to the UN Security Council over airspace violation by the U.S.

The SUAS is detachable from the stand, to make for easier shipping and transport.
This is an excellent conversation piece for your desk or cabinet. It's also a perfect going-away present for someone moving on to another assignment, or just a really neat gift for a UAV fan. I can make custom placards or add text to the plaque to personalize the item; please include what you would like in your comment when you check out.

This is a 3D printed product, so there may be minor defects (rough edges, bumps, etc). I have spent months building my own machine to exact specifications for accuracy and surface quality, and I scrutinize every model very closely. I use only the highest quality filament to ensure colors are vibrant and defects are kept to an absolute minimum for both your item and my machine.
Every item in my shop is test printed and checked for not only aesthetics, but also the intended use. All of my items I list I personally test to ensure they meet my stringent standards. All items are printed in PLA, an organic non-toxic plastic made from corn and is biodegradable, yet very strong. PLA will not degrade under normal use, but will break down when buried.
If I'm not happy with it, it doesn’t ship. You will get my very best work, which you will find is a cut above the rest!
Please note, this creation is a work of fan art and is in no way affiliated with Lockheed Martin Inc.
