Hello, for this challenge, you need to make a flying craft that doesn't have anything on the outside. Reply to me using a download link.

RULES (Because why not):

1. NO CHEATS!!!!

2. Have to be flyable

3. Use as much parts as you want, there no restriction on what parts you can use.

Tip: use cargo containers

The brick takes flight from a flame internal, a roiling of spirit projected into our somatic world. But why? What can it mean?

Great Brick of Mystery

Oh, I just clipped a bunch of things inside the rockomax hub, and KSP's lovely but silly physics took care of the rest. In there is a vector, a rapier, a flea, and 13 dawns plus enough fuel cells to keep them humming. It's a bit crowded :) . The rocket fire slips right out of the hub because of a mechanic called exhaustDamageDistanceOffset, where the damage from rocket fire doesn't start until a little ways after the rocket nozzle. For general amusement's sake, I took advantage of the effect in a video I made for a challenge a while back. Here's a link that'll hop strait to it, at 2:18. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uaYb5AiSY3M&t=2m18s The plane shown has a flea SRB pointing through a mk1 cockpit and a little fuel tank. The rocket fire explodes the fuel tank, but the cockpit is fine and the plane flies away happy as can be. It's a bit bizarre, but hey that's what makes KSP fun!

I love the rocket-in-a-wrapper design philosophy you've got going. It can actually be pretty useful... and mysterious.

You got it! The potential for silly-brick-ness is nearly unbounded.

I'm happy you like it! With the exception of that very chilly speedrun, those videos have been great fun to make, and I'm glad you've enjoyed watching them. I'm posting rather slowly, so if you're interested in someone with a similar style, I can heartily recommend Turbopumped, who's been pushing the boundaries of big and small, and also times their hits of video and hits of music together. Here's a link - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=29l0YgxA_6c .

On an unrelated note, as requested, the Spin to Win badge is finally up! After you're done bricking, you should go check it out.
