I glued the fuselage, but it's bad, its wasting of time, maybe in future I try draw it in SketchUp*, it is so many parts, but nothing, what does it stick straight

* but at first must redraw fuselage on Steampunk Electro-Magnetic Aero Carriage  siriusartworks.deviantart.com/…

Great work! I wished to build Mako since I played ME, but always designing phase thrown me off. Thanks for doing this for me!
What scale is the model? My rough calculations suggests it is close to 1:35, am I right?

Scale has always been a problem in the game, the mako was really REALLY small in ME3(Final mission in London) as opposed to it's size in ME1... I'd say it's more like 1:48 though...

Well, you are right that scale (and ability to fit interior in the exterior) do not look like high level priority for ME model designers. :D
For example, playing ME1 I wondered how Normandy interior may fit inside it's hull - you can see how small she is while she docks in the Citadel.
You say ME3 Makos are much smaller than the one from ME1? And am I right they have compartment for soldiers in the back, where the engine used to be?

Why I think your Mako model is 1:35? When I tried to build my Mako model I made screenshots from ME1. Wheel reaches just below Shepard's shoulder. I'll have to build a model's wheel to make proper comparisons, but it seems to be more or less in good proportions with 1:35 figures.

Yep. I guess now we know why Sheppard could only take two teammates on a mission, the Mako can't take more people! :D

So cool. Thanks for the design and the sharing. Now I only need the time to build it (so many nice models...).

Thanks again!

You know, if I had a PDO of this baby, I'd be tempted to make a lifesize one.

At the size you're going for, you should get your hands on the game-mesh. It has a lot more detail than this little guy. :D

Well that's just the thing, I DO have the in-game mesh, problem is, for fabrication purposes, simple is better. I just need to make the basic shape out of metal, the rest can be bondo and paint.

This is excellent. :D When I saw the model, I was like OMG and found it has instructions and everything, so I'm gonna start building it. If you don't mind hehe. ;) Looks amazing and I just must have one for myself. xD

You are the best. I,m replaying my way through Mass Effect again, and one the bits I love is the Mako. I was only wondering yesterday if anyone had done a papermodel and, ta da, here it is.
If I can now only leave the game long enough to build it.....

Thanks again
