SSV Normandy SR2 . Cerberus built SSV Normandy SR2, Heavy stealth reconnaisance frigate, which is the chief means of interstellar transport for the protagonist in Mass Effect 2. . If you like it, please rate it!
Excatly one month to the day after construction was 'complete', the SR2 recieved her first overhaul (excluding the hangar modifications to accomodate the UT-47). She was given minor cosmetic upgrades to dorsal surface, as well as an actual display stand, rather than an up-turned box. This Stand now sports the Black and Orange Cerberus logo, evident in the most recent image.
Slightly off angle plan view. Those of you who have constructed models in excess of 1 meter and tried to photograph it will appreciate the difficulty in doing so.
The views above and below are prehaps my favourite angle - somewhat agressive, but showing off the curved hull to good effect.
A nice comparison photograph to give an idea of the size of this model - at 1.26m, she's a bit of a beast to move around. I chose to stick with a space exploration theme for comparison (as well as a common(ish) official set that can be easily recognised), so what better than the Shuttle Discovery?
Cerberus stand. Why? Because I can.
Main docking hatch, used for direct personel and cargo trasnfer via external boarding tube, allowing the Normandy to dock with anything sporting the equipment.
The THANIX system was a little tricky to install - because of the shape, location, size and need not only to be retractable without trace, but include cylindrical barrels which extend and retract back into the cannons themselves.
Feel free to comment - I do read and act on them, the inspiration for this MOC came from one such observation.
Thanks for taking the time to view, and remember, whatever doesn't kill you, dies horribly.
Edit: After so many positive responses from the community, I designed a more marketable version that was posted on LEGO CUUSOO. The project had to be removed when the site announced they would no longer permit creations from shooter-based video games, but the instructions are still available here: MKII Normandy
