One of the largest rockets I've ever built, the ULV-200:

It has a maximum capacity of 200 tonnes to 100km orbit (as its name suggests) and is almost as tall as the VAB. :)

The Neptune X is part of the Neptune LV family

Could you post pictures of other launchers in that family? I'm quite curious what a smaller Neptune X would look like:sticktongue:

Dunno if I posted this here allready, still an awesomely scary lifter.

Here's the Neptune A:

The Neptune series were basically Saturn V derived rockets. The Neptune A, B, C, and X all use the same five engine setup in the core stage the defines the rocket family.

Launcher with Space Station "Omega 7"

All Stock 1.0 Version
Launch at your on Risk, Boosters will be exploding during it's ascent and control is not good but I managed to put my Space Station in Kerbin Orbit. Lagging became an issue so refueling or any visits are not going to be attempted any further.

I made a Long March 2D. It gets about 2t to orbit, compared to the real rocket's 3.5t.

The "Discovery 1." Best launch vehicle to date. Only 5 Kerbals have perished, and it has enough D-V to get into an orbit around the Mun.

Hey welcome to the forums.

When bragging about your crafts it is customary to provide pics

I wish I could. I have a couple screenshots that I can't upload. :(

If you get an imgur account, you can upload the images there, then insert them using the "insert other media" thing in the bottom right of the post window.

 

My Ares V replica can take 30-45 tons to orbit (depending on launch profile and aero factors), is easy to fly, and really part efficient (it's less than 30 parts).

Nice rocket BTW.

No you just need to use some image hosting site

This thread is kind of old but the topic is still relevant so I feel like there is not much point in starting a new identical thread.

I'd like to present the Raven V. Largest in the Raven series of launch vehicles, the Raven V has two launch configurations: with a standard R5 upper stage, the Raven V can transport around 105 tonnes to LKO; alternatively, the Raven V can be used to launch the R5-B, which is an augmented R5 designed for use as a modular interplanetary propulsion module. The R5-B uses more efficient engines at the cost of lower thrusts, and has an integrated truss structure that can contain a small payload or an extra fuel tank (both of which must be launched separately).

Below: a Raven V with R5-B upper stage. The central core actually reaches orbit with this configuration, but is pushed back to a sub-orbital trajectory by separation motors when jettisoned.

The R5-B is pictured below. The standard R5 looks similar, except it has Kiwi engines instead of aerospikes, and does not have an integrated truss structure.

The Spicy Mk2! Yes, I do name my launchers after salsa.

Able to lift 3.5 tons to LKO, and is fully reusable, SpaceX style!

I have built a couple series of launch vehicles.  For lack of any creativeness on my part, they are the Alpha and Bravo series.  Best part was launching them as seen below.

Alpha Series 1.25m LV. Designed to get small payloads in to LKO. All recoverable using Stage Recovery and RealChutes. Left to right; Alpha 1 and Alpha 2. 2.5 Mg and 5Mg, respectively into 100km LKO. Engines by KW Rocketry.

Bravo Series 2.5m LV. Designed to get Medium to heavy payloads into LKO. All recoverable using Stage Recovery and RealChutes. Left to right; Bravo 1 through 7. 10, 15, 20, 25, 30, 35 and 40Mg respectively into 100km LKO. Engines by KW Rocketry, SRBs by KW Rocketry and SpaceY.

Charlie Series - 5m... In the works.
