Took a closer look, and I see how it works now. Nice concept!

Video as promised. Add some monoprop propulsion system to dock in space. And connections between wings (can reduce possible vibration ...mmm maybe... in real life).

Gorgeous!

Differential yaw between those two boosters would be really problematic IRL but I love how it works in KSP!

Try to build something like this in RSS+RO , but procedural fuel tanks still not updated for 1.22 so i cant create a good 1st stage recovery system... but for now it just Realism Overhaul PSTO and good one hypersonic glider, what well change descent precision tragectory from mach 12 to mach 5 . It parts resist temperature only max 2500 (except 4 heatshields, 2 on bow, 2 on landing gear in tail). But descent is ok . 

ps- sorry for my poor english

I tried building the Space Shuttle Orbiter, but de-orbiting is a problem...
