UT-47 Kodiak Drop Shuttle

UT-47 Kodiak Drop Shuttle


Nicknamed the "Combat Cockroach" by Alliance marines due to its durability and looks, the Kodiak drop shuttle is an interplanetary vehicle operated by a pilot and a co-pilot. It can carry up to 14 people, including the pilots, with a total of 12 in a cramped cargo space with full complement, as well as a VI. A true contragravitic vehicle, the Kodiak's substantial element zero core allows flight by entirely countering the vehicle's mass. Its small thrusters are for directional control only, so if the mass effect field fails, the vehicle becomes a proverbial "three-million-credit coffin". The unarmed shuttle forgoes weaponry-space for active masking, electronic countermeasures, and a robust kinetic barrier system.


The Kodiak was extensively tested in the sulfuric acid and extreme temperatures of Venus, and can land in hard vacuum, high pressure, and temperatures from near-absolute zero to over 900 degrees Celsius.




The Kodiak Shuttle is something very special for me.

It certainly was the most difficult build of my whole time as Lego builder. I tried to build it as stud less as possible. Therefore it’s quite instabile, but it very accurate. And I added some stickers to make it even more accurate. Furthermore the model features openable doors on both sides. Also, this is the first time I photoshoped the whole background, because this build is too big to fit into my usual background.


This is my first Mass Effect build, but there’re more to come.


Hope you like it !
