  1. A Seaplane Bomber that Failed to Break any Ground In 1950, the Navy was left without an effective nuclear platform in an era where it needed one to stay relevant in the interservice politics of the day - and the Seamaster was their ticket to changing that. Fleets of seaplane bombers would form a mobile, resilient, and hard to detect striking force with the help and supply of submarines and dedicated support vessels. From there, they could carry nuclear payloads deep into the Soviet Union after launching from places where no Air Force bomber could hope to launch. Despite the many marvels of Engineering that went into making the Seamaster a reality, it was doomed to the history books as a failed project. For the details of the story, please enjoy this video - I put a lot of time and effort into making it. The Craft Download can be found here: I'm planning on making this a series showcasing the flops, failures, and fantasies of the Aviation world. The next video will likely showcase the F-111B Aardvark and tell the story of how a failed joint strike fighter of sorts led to the development of the greatest carrier-based interceptor ever - the F-14 Tomcat. As this is a new series, I'd love to hear your comments on it below, or just ideas for future stories to tell in this medium. Until then, cheers, and happy flying! -Servo
  2. I haven't printed it out yet, and it needs to be painted afterwards, but here is my progress for now...
  3. This is my stock ksp recreation of SpaceX's starhopper test vehicle, which recently hopped 20 meters untethered on July 25, 2019 and will hopefully hop 200 meters in August. It's still a WIP though, but I'm almost done with it! Here's some images: My Recreation (using Making History for some parts) Real Life Starhopper My Stock Starhopper Recreation "hopping" Real life Starhopper hopping My Starhopper Recreation after hopping, back on the ground One time I tried landing it on the VAB, and this happened (turns out its pretty durable, not the VAB though) Downloads: KerbalX Steam Workshop
  4. this thread is just a place to show off my historical (and current) mission and craft recreations this is an orbital version of a mercury redstone rocket dubbed the "Mercury Redstone Advanced"
  5. Hello everyone! I want to share with you my project called 'New Kepard'. It was inspired by New Shepard rocket landing: My goal was to recreate it in KSP using the kRPC mod which allows you to write your own scripts to control the vessel. The developement of the project took me much longer than I had originally thought (more than 100 hours). Writing the program which controls the rocket was not the hardest thing. Bugfixing, tweaking, testing and ensuring that the code is prepared for every possible flight scenario was what I spent the most of the time (~75%) on. I am now very happy that I made it to the end and didn't give up. I created two films about my project: The first one was edited to be similar to the original Blue Origin's video The goal of the second film is to show what my project is and how to use it Code and the craft are avaliebe to download on GitHub. I hope you like what I've done
  6. I want to recreate a bunch of commercial aircraft on a 1:1 scale, using only stock parts and Tweakscale. This mod greatly increases the accuracy needed when working on a 1:1 scale, while keeping it challenging due to having to build stock. I started of with a Boeing 737MAX7 and it turned out pretty decent. I am not going to put windows or interiors on the planes to at least save a little bit on parts count. This is more about trying to get the shape and size as accurate as possible which is why there is a custom cockpit. This makes the plane have huge drag but she still flies pretty decent!
  7. In addition to the normal Munar/lunar orbit rendezvous(MOR/LOR) architecture, NASA studied several other approaches, that involved 2 rockets. Type 1: Earth/Kerbin Orbital Rendezvous(EOR/KOR) Launch an unmanned lander into LKO, then dock a MK1 pod to it and perform an Apollo-style mission from there. Or: Launch an unmanned booster into LKO, and dock a direct-ascent lander to it(that can land on the Mun and get back to kerbin.) My mission was that kind. Type 2: Joint Lunar Obit Rendezvous Launch an unmanned lander into lunar/munar orbit, then send a MK1 pod to it and perform an Apollo-style mission from there. Scoring: Start with 200 points for completion. Subtract 1 point for each part used. Subtract 5 points for each tech node you use. That is too hard, but if you go low-tech, you'll get the "impress me" 3x bonus. Bonuses: Use RSS or resized kerbin: X2 Bring a rover: X2 Lander is two stage: +10 You couldn't redock in lunar orbit and had to EVA: Divide by 2 Used Mechjeb during flight(OK in VAB): Divide by 2 Use RO: X2 Use KOS: X2 Use any Life Support Mod: X2 Use Asparagus Staging: Divide by 2 Land on minimus: Divide by 2 Instead of using a MK1 pod, used a small shuttle: X2 No fuel transfer at all: X2 Impress me: X3 For example, if you launched a 50 part lander(parts include launcher!) and a 60 part command module, with life support, mechjeb, and asparagus staging, your score will be 45. Leader boards Type 1(EOR/KOR): 1. sevenperforce- 1044 points 2. DAL59- 140 points 3. 4. 5. Type 2(LOR/MOR) 1. mk1980- 1304 points 2. sevenperforce- 316 points 3. 53miner53- 268 points 4. 5. 6. Remember, you must launch two rockets. Good Luck!
  8. Mars 2020 is a rover that will be the first part of NASA's Mar's Sample Return program. Challenge: Build a rover, sent it to Duna, and collect data from three different biomes. Your rover must have three detachable science storage units. These represent the caches the rover leaves behind. Then, send another mission, a comsat, to Duna, that has a detachable drive. Then, sent a Mars ascent vehicle, that will pick up the containers, and take them to Duna orbit. Then, the comsat's drive unit will take them back to Kerbin. Note: You do not have to physically bring the containers back to Kerbin. You can transfer the science into another container. You can transfer science through a claw or docking. Score: 100 points minus total tonnage sent to LKO. Bonus: 2X For having the MAV bring a small rover/hopper to collect the containers. +10 for using ISRU for the MAV 2X For lowering first rover with skycrane 2X for docking drive to Mun station with lab
  9. 16th July 1969 was the launch of the first crewed lunar LANDING mission. Exactly this day, 48 years ago. Due to the anniversary I decided to recreate Apollo 11 lunar landing mission in STOCK KSP (KER was used to help with orbital data). NOTE: This is not 1:1 accurate, I was limited by the stock ksp parts and physics. Thanks

  11. Since yesterday was the launch of Apollo 11, I decided to recreate the launch in KSP. So, I will post this mission report as it goes along, posting one post a day to summarized what happened on that day in real life. As for today, I will post what happened today and yesterday. So, lets begin! Chapter 1: Day 1 Yesterday, July 16, is the launch of Apollo 11 Here Jeb, Bill and Bob get ready to launch. The launch tower retracts before launch T-minus 10, 9, 8 , 7 , 6, 5... 4, 3, 2, 1, ignition... Liftoff, Liftoff for Apollo 11! We have cleared the tower! The rest of the launch is rather boring, so I hadn't took pictures of the launch. The third stage igniting to plot a Moon Intercept. And that concludes our first day. Chapter 2: Day 2 The second day is rather ineventful, so there are only four images: Apollo 11 with Earth and Saturn (in the upper left) Another view of Earth and Saturn A shot with Saturn on the upper right and Mars on the right A view of Earth from the cockpit And that concludes Day 1 and Day 2!
