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 !

    Thank you very much, everyone !

    I never thought this build would cause such a positive reaction ! This photo reached more than 90 favorites ! That's my personal record ! Special thanks to everyone, who faved this photo !

    Also a very big "Thank you !" to The Brothers Brick, who blogged this creation ! It's certainly a great honor for me !

    Baspherical I just tried out some fonts of my photo programm on white background and printed them on glossy decal paper. The Cerberus symbol is the only thing I got from the internet. All the other stickers are selfmade.

    captain_slash181 As Mr. Grievous said, it appears in Mass Effect 2 and 3. In ME2 it only appears in Cerberus colors (as I built it). In Mass Effect 3 it also appears in Alliance colors.

    ^ That's what you get when tapping into a famous franchise as Mass Effect.
    It also helps that this build is amazing :)

    Oh, and; "This is my first Mass Effect build, but there’re more to come."
    I will hold you to that.

    Simply stunning. The proportions and colors are just right.

    I love the curves in the armor of this ship. I also admire how you made a zero stud ship while still having alot of details.
  • Chaos Son of SoS 3y

    I'm so late that I almost did not comment. This is so freakin' awesome! Any plans for other Mass Effect builds?
  • Ordo PRO 3y

    Chaos Son of SoS Thanks ! Yes, I'm planning to build more Mass Effect stuff. Currently I think the next build will be this, but I'm not totally sure, yet. Another option would be the Mantis gunship.
