I do much the same. I tend to recreate Raptor's craft based largely on the pictures, but slightly modified for my play-style. I add MechJeb and reaction wheels to everything for example. I also still largely use his older EV-1 (with the service bay underneath) design for my 1-crew capsules. Keep up the excellent work Mr. Raptor!
I know it says you're waiting on KVV to update before uploading any craft files, but any chance we could get a few screenshot teasers? The wait is killing me! Great work as always!
