    I had a crack at test build my own normandy sr2 it turn out ok for the first prototype but it may not be good to post as a kit.

    I have not complete the other side engine just run out of glue but i'll get it done.The fuselage i split each sections & made inform ribs for structure.
    I have made the back fin stick outwards, it make it look so much cooler from behind.

    I'll try to keep up to date as much as i can, i'm studying & working.

    Cheers.

    Hey Zathros

    The total length of the Normandy SR2 is roughly about 36" & width is roughly about 14".
    I am planing a much more better & cleaner design of the normandy sr2 but you would be better off with steve design than mine.

    I am redesigning the mid sections alot different than the one that you see in the pic , i did not like the open joint as much so i'm changing it.


    Cheers

    Nice job Anthony. Of course I feel slow and inadequate now since I'm still working on mine. Your version is much bigger than the version I'm doing at 24". I also didn't think the open joints in the middle were worth keeping so I smoothed those over in my design as well. Great minds think alike...

    Look forward to seeing your next build.

    New Designed Normandy SR2

    I have made progress on the new Normandy SR2 that i'm building, in the first Below pic that you see is my first prototype Normandy front nose assembly, notice i have split up two of the section & now i have change it to one peace nose with internal ribs.The second below pic is the new front nose assembly & now less joint line witch i'm happy the way it looks.

    I squeeze a bit of build time & done some progress on the nose, note: i'm only using straight A4 paper for the skin. I want to see how effective when the skin is apply to the inform ribs & see if there is crease lines on the skin & i gotta say it has not effect much on the A4 but i going to do another test build above 140 to 190gsm Card stock paper. I can see using thicker paper less the crease lines there is.

    Well that's it for now until i get some more glue down at bunnings warehouse.

    Bye for now.:wave:

    I just downloaded your model.:thumb: It is awesome! My son is so crazy over it, I think this will "our" first build. Thanks so much! :inw: My son wants the game, but at 11 years old, I have never played the game. Is it too much for an 11 year old?

    Hey Zathros,

    I would not worry at the age 11 for your son to play Mass Effect , like me when i was around that age i use to play DOOM 1 , Duke Nukem , ect on my pc & that was pretty scary when those game come out the first time. If you buy the game have a try out for your self and see if it up to your standard if it's ok for your son to play it.

    No first person shooters for my kid. I would just rather have him shoot a real rifle, at a target, under very controlled circumstances. I am getting ready to buy him a "Red Ryder B.B. gun, 650 f.p.s.!!

    Well i totally agreed with JHSurf, but if i had a son & he is 11 years of age & begging me to buy Dead Space i would say NOOO for a action game but for a first person shooter it not as bad with violence, My mate has a 10 year old son & he is playing mass effect 1 , 2 , & can't wait for the third to come out & he has no drama with the game , i ask him what's the best thing you like in mass effect & he told me the Galaxy Explore around the planet.

    Any way it's up to your decision what's best for your kids to play or watch , But then if you say no for mass effect , then i'll say No aswell.:mrgreen:
    Every parent has different opinion what's best for there kid & what not.
