    What did you do in KSP today?

    Started work on the rival to my replica SV-262. It uses the main fuselage of the successful '35' pictured below And of course the pair together in the same shot. Personally I'm very happy with how the wing turned out. Overall its a good practice for wing designs.

    The last tests of the W262. Final adjustments to the control surfaces, pretty satisfied with it. Next is the lifting capability, carries the large belly tanks with no issue. It comes with its own belly tank so this is only just purely to test its performance.

    Finally got a build of the SV-262 from Macross Delta done, first attempt at it failed miserably and I set it aside to improve my building technique. Tackled it with the things I learned along the way, and of course the first use of autostrut for me.

    Looks like I missed out that autostrut has been a thing. Just turned it on and it fixed the issue. Thanks guys. Cuts down on part count as well, which is great. It was hitting 100 parts with struts and still had that issue to a lesser degree, now its completely solved.

    Working on something that uses airbrakes to hide the engines. Pretty nice view with them deployed. Problem is that the wings will flex though. Gonna find a way to stop that somehow. Never had this issue in my previous designs.

    Following the rescue of Nelbas Kerman he was assigned to be the test pilot of an experimental variant of the very plane that rescued him. Well, he's back to Mount Treacherous and stuck there once again. Meanwhile, Jeaneane Kerman came back to life somehow and took a spin in the '36', finding out its top speed at low altitude despite running on nothing but 2 Panther jet engines.

    Nelbas Kerman was finally rescued by Mount Treacherous following the use of the 15/25 to land in the treacherous terrain there, with some careful flying the 10 ton plane was able to land. For takeoff it was a simple matter of engaging full engine power and immediately pitching up to get the light aircraft into the air as soon as possible. The damaged '32' on the left and the '15/25' on the right The flight home to the Dessert Airfield and the subsequent landing.

    Test flight to see if this is able to land in the treacherous terrain of Mount Treacherous. Answer? Nope.
  10. 2 of my Kerbals died testing missiles. The missile destroyed the right wing of the Stearwing A300 and sent it into a death spiral and I didn't eject them in time. You can see what remains of the torn off right wing in the picture

    3km on separatrons is pretty impressive though. I assume you gave them RTGs to keep the reaction wheels powered. My jet engine propelled missiles' ability to endlessly hound its target via SAS' target guidance was thanks to the jet engines' low fuel consumption, it does make for heavy missiles(and they are relatively inaccurate) unless I use the small jet engine(and mk0 fuel tanks) which limits the altitude it can be used, so I was looking into using rockets for small high altitude missiles.

    How are the missiles? Are they stable in flight or do they spin out of control?

    Show off your awesome KSP pictures!

    Just a leisurely flight through the desert, or is it?
