Explore Osama bin Laden’s compound in 3D

From the Google Earth Blog

It’s just been a few days since Osama bin Laden was killed in Abbottabad, Pakistan, and already there are a variety of 3D models of his mansion available in the Google 3D Warehouse. Some are nice renderings, some use very realistic textures, and one is simply meant to be funny. However, all of them show that there are some very talented modelers out there, being able to produce models of this quality in such a short time frame.

Here are some of the best ones, in no particular order:

From J.A. Alvarez | details | KMZ

osama1.jpgFrom Finnian | details | KMZ

osama2.jpgFrom Aerilius | details | KMZ

osama3.jpgFrom timmy | details | KMZ

osama4.jpgFrom Mogens Bregnbaek | details | KMZ

osama5.jpgI would assume that Google will post one of them as a default 3D model in Google Earth at some point. I wonder which one they’ll use? Which one would you choose?
