    I was very glad to see that another Zealot Hobby member has gone through the trouble to create a SSV Normandy paper model from the original Mass Effect. I’ve been looking and haven’t seen a model for the SR-2 Normandy from Mass Effect 2. I have seen it requested in the SSV Normandy thread and thought I’d take a shot. I’ve tracked down a cad model with textures and have begun to tear it down. This is where I am at this time. It is nearly there I think. The remaining work is to deal with all of the small surfaces left over. I can post the current .pdo now if anyone wants it. I will post the final .pdo once complete along with .pdf.

    Awesome!

    WOW! Thanks Melvin. That's another thing I can take off my to do list. There have been several requests for the SR2, so I'll post a note in the other thread directing people here.

    Cheers,

    Steve

    Looks awesome, and yeah, very detailed.

    Please post the PDO when you are done. I for one prefer the PDO above PDF.

    First Unfold Attempt

    I see that there is deff some interest in this model. Very good to see some fellow ME2 fans. Sadly between work/life and a Dead Space build i'm doing I haven't been able to polish Normandy 2 up. I thought i'd put this out for now. I think that the model is a good size and more than adequate for test building and those more die hard paper peeps. I'm going to test build it myself as soon as i get some time.

    Quickly looking at the PDO I can see there are some serious difficult parts to build if not imposable, still some work to be done but thanks for the PDO.

    That is an amazing model; technically very accurate. I wonder if it was a resource pull from the game model.

    I'd love to rearrange some of those panels, but it was saved in v3; I only have a v2 license (for now) so this'll have to be shelved for the moment.

    This is a beauty ship; I like the lines of it a little better than the SR1 (although it was sad to see the SR1 scattered across a frozen landscape).

    Thank you for sharing!

    Mate, I love your work! The Normandy SR-2 is one of my absolute favourite ships, and you've done it justice!

    You bet

    Yes, it will print individual pages. Keep in mind though that this is kind of a beta release so there are likely to be some problems with it. If you build it please post any and all comments you have, or start a build thread.
