"I built the entire Normandy SR2 by hand. I had no plans going into this project and just made most of it up as I went. I started by making the basic interior design out of dirt, and I replaced them with the proper materials after. Once the interior was done, I built the exterior shell around it. I spawned most of the materials because it would've been nearly impossible to collect tens of thousands of iron and wool blocks. Even though materials were spawned, I placed every single block myself. The entire project took more than a hundred hours over the course of a couple months.
Note: Through this project, I found the Mass Effect Normandy interior isn't really to proper scale with the exterior. As a result, this isn't a perfect recreation. The most notable difference is that the entrance is towards the middle of the ship rather than the front.
