  1. Thanks mate! I'll keep the OP updated, but I'm just going to do away with the individual craft threads. In other news: I'm going to be away for a month but I'll see you guys when I get back. Cupcake...
  2. Yeah, it was just too much work and I'm not sure if anyone (present company excluded) bothered to read them. Cupcake...
  3. Did a spot of drift triking among other things. Enjoy! Cupcake...
  4. Heh Folks, Hope you enjoy this video. I'm going to be moving to a simpler repository system iin future where craft can be DL from the Youtube description. I'm not going to be writing out craft manuals anymore but if anyone gets stuck please drop me a line and I'll try to help. Ta! Cupcake..
  5. They’re actually made up of small antennas . Thanks for the mention BTW. Cupcake...
  6. Went for a little stroll around Duna. Cupcake...
  7. Sci-fi Visual Enhancements, Scatterer & Planetshine. Cupcake...
  8. That doesn’t look safe. Please don’t build a real life version! Cupcake...
  9. I don't think the aero model will play ball sadly. The Hex is a nice little throwback but the days of SSTO dropships are long gone sadly. In other news: Coming soon. Cupcake...
  10. Wow! It's beautiful in a hideous sort of way! Cupcake...
  11. Thanks for lovely feedback! The craft is now available to D/L if anyone wishes to take it for a spin. I use a mod called EVA Follower to have Kerbals wonder around, everything else is camera tools. All the best. Cupcake...
  12. CRAFT FILE: https://www.dropbox.com/sh/i3ghib5yldxavxn/AAACug_ikHyfQOFoYffZOBEca?dl=0 Presenting the Scalpel, a high performance SSTO that's terrifying, yet surprisingly practical. While designed to ferry rock hoppers and probes into the orbit the craft can also be kitted out with a detachable fuel cell for trips to the Jool system. The Ion hopper used in the video has been included as an example. With the payload safely delivered there's nothing to stop you having a good hoon at treetop height. CONTROLS: 2 - Toggle Engines 3 - Switch Modes 4 - Toggle Detachment Engines 0 - Toggle Cargo Bay Doors ABORT - Undock Cargo Port SUGGESTED ASCENT PROFILE: For ascending I'd recommend disabling the main pitch (located behind the cargo bay) and roll (outermost control surfaces) surfaces. Activate SAS and set full throttle. Ensure the crafts heading is 90°. Once the craft leaves the runway, fold the landing gear and build up speed while keeping your altitude low. At 1500m/s bring the nose up to a 20° pitch. Once your apoapsis hits 40k set the craft to point prograde. The rapiers rocket engines will soon ignite. Leave them burning until the craft hits an apoapsis of 80k then cut the engines and coast out the atmosphere. OWNERS MANUAL: A joystick is highly recommended and SAS should be kept on at all times. When adding cargo try and position the payload as close to the centre of mass as possible (RCS Build AID Recommended). I'd suggest draining the fuel from both pre-coolers when doing this. The craft is extremely agile but can be very unforgiving at low speeds when there's not enough air moving over the control surfaces. In short treat her with respect and you'll be fine! The detachment engines are designed to help ease the craft away from the payload once it has been deployed. Quicksaving/loading with a Kerbal in a command seat can mangle the landing gear. To fix this, have the Kerbal leave the seat then quicksave/load. Enjoy! Cupcake...
  13. ...ferried a wee bit cargo to orbit. Enjoy! Cupcake...
  14. Heh all, I'm aiming to have this one released over the weekend. Enjoy! Cupcake...
  15. Thanks for the lovely feedback as always. Cupcake...
  16. Help Jeb get settled in to his private Island. Enjoy! Cupcake...
  17. I'll just leave this here: Enjoy! Cupcake...
  18. Thanks Daf. I think I may have found a fix for the landing gear bug which will be very cool if it works. Cupcake...
  19. ...is now available to DL for all you warmongers out there (BD Armoury Required). Rocket pods added because, well... they just are. They're mounted to the side docking ports so can be jettisoned easily if need-be. Enjoy! Cupcake...
  20. Yeah, I'll get the military version uploaded tomorrow, it's past my bedtime here. Cupcake...
