Abstract:

A novel decoy providing the deceptive appearance of a genuine three-dimensional object, such as vehicle, is described which comprises a plurality of modular table units each of predetermined shape and assembled in an abutting relationship to form an outline of the vehicle, each said table unit supported by a framework including leg elements in a spaced relationship above the ground whereby a shadow is cast in said outline, to further the deceptive appearance of said decoy as viewed from the air, and a vertical element, supported by said assemblage of table units, in the shape of an elevational view of said vehicle, to provide deceptive elevational view of said vehicle.
