At this stage any pad, the runway or the dock can be used landed, splashed or in orbit. When landed or splashed, operation is exactly as it was before. When in orbit, the new ship is spawned "docked" (docking ports not required) to the construction dock and must be released (the build menu will be unavailable until the new ship has been released). To release the ship, right click on the dock and click "Release". Once the release bug (see below) has been worked around, the new ship will slowly drift away (as expected for two objects in orbit).
Station before any construction begins.
The hab module has been built and moved over with a little tug.
D'oh, not enough parts to build the tank.
After shipping up some more parts, the tank is built and being moved into position by the station's tug (which was built just before the hab module was).
