Hehe, I'm sure your friend will love it! Which Normandy are you making? Don't forget to post pics of it! Always nice to see. I'm currently test building the Alliance colors Kodiak-A shuttle, and I'm planning on an Alliance cruiser, Turian,Cerberus and Alliance fighters among others, and at some point I want to do Harbinger or Sovereign... That's just the Mass Effect models on my to-do list...
the alliance one. and yeah I always make my friends paper crafts for holidays and their birthdays, I've never played mass effect myself x) but I love your model for the ship, extremely simple and very professional looking. Sometimes I find these models and it's like what were you even thinking this clearly isn's stable. Please make more! O:
Hahaha, that's true about some of the models out there. Mostly those problems come from the models being game-ripped or found off the net and someone just dropped it into an unfolding program and think it's buildable. If you haven't already, check out and join the two biggest papermodeling communities: www.papermodelers.com and www.zealot.com. Some awesome stuff being offered, built by others and lots of people giving advice etc.
yeah, personally I find unfolding programs a little sickening. I understand their use, but it takes the craft out of it I think. I'm probably not even right to be saying that, but I've made 2 models from hand and I did it the old fashioned way. They came out great I think And I'll take a look at those! I check paperkraft.net daily, and that seems to be the most recent/popular collection. I tend to lean towards tiny models rather than larger ones. I'm a die hard ink/paper saver, so I love when I can make something fantastic with one sheet.
