Wow! It's been a long time since my last post here. Somewhere around three months short of a year, by my count. I've been having some serious issues with my internet service provider that, unfortunately, still haven't been resolved. But, I have managed to get my laptop tethered to my phone. I don't have a lot of data to play with, but I'm going to try to keep my Mocpage up to date from now on. Anyway I'll stop boring you with the nitty-gritty details and let you get to the pictures.
About this creation
I got Mass Effect 3 for Christmas and after my eighth play-through, I just had to build a Quarian Envoy Ship! It's such an awesome looking ship!
The model is 4' 2" long and 14" tall. I don't keep track of how my pieces I use when I'm building, but if I had to make a guess, I think it would be somewhere around 4000 pieces. It took me about 100 hours to build.
I used three different pictures for reference, ranging from concept art to screenshots from the game. Unfortunely, all of them were blurry when I zoomed in to see the smaller details. So I had to use my imagination in most areas of the ship. In other words, this is not meant to be a super accurate recreation of the ship.
Well, what do you think? Not bad, eh? There are a couple things I would have liked to change but I kept running out of the parts I needed.
I've got quite a few Mocs piled up, so you can expect many more posts in the coming weeks.
Welcome back! I was going through some Corlett withdrawal there. Excellent work on this. The work on the circular hull is genius. I also like the cargo. Some nice work on your angles on the front end. Great to see you building, (or at least posting), again.
Wow, that is just astounding. Love the shape of the thing. You've got some pretty dramatic angles, and move from straight line to curved sections beautifully. As one who's never played the game, it's fun to imagine what all the multi-colored modules are. I'd guess hab pods for races with different environmental needs. Could just be cargo containers, but the rest of the ship is just too pretty to be a freighter. Intriguing. I love it!
I haven't played ME3 yet, but the Quarian fleet was briefly shown in ME2. This is a great representation of the ship. It was such a unique design in the game and you did a spectacular job. Hope that Tali approves! Beautiful work.
