Thermal Imaging an ‘Unidentified Metal Object’ Prompts Bomb Squad Visit #Scotland #3DScanning @Sketchfab

It was odd as there shouldn’t have been anything like that there. So thought I’d take a look. Having climbed down the dunes, fought through the long grass I made it to the bottom of a small inlet and was greeted by a 75% buried round lump of metal. It was rusty and big, the thermal camera had picked up something I thought to myself.
