No no no, I will launch the X-20 Dyna-Soar SPACEPLANE strapped to the side of a buran style launcher :)

Nope, doesn't ring a bell...

Google didn't help me. ^_^

Hey! I really liked this idea so I built a cool looking mini shuttle! It has a "first stage" part which helps getting to orbit.

It has a scientific bay with a communication antenna. Here are all the pictures: http://imgur.com/a/Ay41c

Had to have a quick go at this... The TAZT. I have no idea what it's good for. It can get 4 Kerbals and has about 1,700m/s ∆V in the shuttle. The lifter is very overpowered and still had around 500ms ∆V when I circularized at 150km.

However, random disassembly with no explanation during reentry... Need to refine this. But it works surprisingly well for a first flight!

Is it a Problem, if it is a SSTO?

Thats my shortest MK3 Shuttle. And I think you can really call it Mini Space Shuttle :D

 I do also have a cargo Version, if thats a requirement :)

By the way, this is the most easy to fly SSTO that i have ever build.

Digging through some old saves, I found my take on the Steerwing from a BSC challenge.  Switched some things around to make it a vertical launched TSTO spaceplane.
