We built a Eurofighter Typhoon out of tools you would find in various RAF personnel work environments.

An invisible base structure was made from polished perspex, from which the articles were attached. Multiple versions of the structure were explored before final client approval was reached.

The final plane was mounted on a hexapod giving it full 7 axis motion control and shot outside against the sky. The finished model has now been installed in an air museum with a bespoke display stand.

As an addition to the project, we had to rig numerous objects with puppeteering rods for and linear sliders for the initial sequence, where the tools come to life.
