Talking SSV NORMANDY SR1 [COTW 11/26/12]

CAUTION! NERDY CAR!

The SSV Normandy SR-1 (Systems Alliance Space Vehicle Stealth Reconnaissance 1) is a Systems Alliance starship. She is a prototype "deep scout" frigate, first of the eponymous Normandy class, co-developed by the Alliance and the Turian Hierarchy with the sponsorship of the Citadel Council.
She is optimized for solo reconnaissance missions deep within unstable regions, using state-of-the-art stealth technology powered by an experimental drive core. Commissioned in 2183, the Normandy was initially captained by David Anderson, however, she was handed over to Commander Shepard when the commander became the first human Spectre, serving as Shepard's main source of transportation and base of operations.
The Normandy is named after the Battle of Normandy in 1944, a pivotal battle of the Second World War.


Meet my beautiful baby! her name is Roxanne, but everyone just calls her NORMANDY. She was born a 2012 2ls Camaro on 9-11-11 in OSHAWA Canada, and made her way into my heart in November 2011. She has grown up so fast.



Borrego Cruise- Leading the pack.

I had a couple questions for you since you've done such a great job in a relatively short amount of time. Where'd you purchase your vinyl from? Not only does it look like you did a great job putting it on, but it looks like good quality stuff. On the rear black out panel, can you see the under painting around the bow tie? So many of the bow tie black outs leave a space around it, but yours looks perfect from the rear facing pictures, maybe a sliver of white from the side shots of the spoiler (but that could just be the chrome). And is your Anvil spoiler painted or CF? Great job so far, keep this build thread going. I've been around here quite a while and yours is one of the most tasteful i've seen to date. You should send pics to BioWare...

Thanks!
Ryan

Thanks Ryan! I purchased my vinyl from Big Worm.(http://www.bigwormgraphix.net/)
You cant see the any white paint around the bowtie, and the blackout is actually a magnet off ebay. I believe I paid about $10 for it. Cheapest mod to date . The anvil spoiler is glossy carbon fiber. It comes from anvil with a UV clear coat, so nothing needs to be done when it arrives. And thanks for all the kind words. I know shes been geeked out, but its the way I wanted her. After all, she is my space ship.

I love and hate this car. Love, because Mass Effect is awesome. Hate because I didn't think of this first. If I Normandy'd my car now I'd just look like a copycat.

If I had a Red Jewel Tint Camaro I'd totally name it Sovereign or Harbinger. It'd have to be Harbinger, since I named my custom built PC Sovereign.

Your car is what inspired me to go "storm trooper." So thanks for modding your car.
And the T3 fascia is awesome.
