So, I have just started playing Mass Effect ( I know, late to the party, and i`s the first one, not ME2 or ME3) 


I love this game, easily one of the best sci-fi games I have ever played. I was looking for kits and found this...

Hi Paul


I`m glad to see there is another Mass Effect fan out there! It is a great series that can chew up hours of your life. I thought it was great to see a new sci-fi universe being created as opposed to rehashing an old one and it works brilliantly.


As for the kit, I`ve never heard of them, but it does look good though. It`s just a damn shame that no one has made a kit of the Normandy yet...

It would be one hell of a project! I have seen some pre-built models on Amazon, but where`s the fun in that? Hopefully Revell would be up for it, but I doubt the request of a few gamer/modeller crossover types, such as ourselves, would generate much enthusiasm for the project. I have found this, which may help...

This is the Normandy from ME2 but it is identical in size and spec to the one from ME1.

Good Luck!

Sorry Paul, a quick update on the above. It appears as though my memory is failing me, here is a pic of the ME1 & ME2 Normandys next to each other, and there are a few `subtle` differences!

Hmmmmmm

doable.... but would push my skills to the absolute limit, but would be one hell of an accomplishment.

I`m sure a chap of your skills could pull it off with the minimal of crying! Would you incorporate the movable engines or have them static? It would be a bit of a beast though wouldn`t it?
