Oye Beratnas,
Kanterbury be chowing A'rocks all cycle long. The SAS is pomang kaka so use your RCS for fine navigation, sass?
Kewe to pensa?

For the Earthers:
This is a sort-of-replica-what-I-call-Kerbalified-version of the Pur'n'Kleen Ice Hauler Canterbury, from the series "The Expanse". While it's designed to look (nearly, but not quite unentirely) like the ship its based on, it is at The Expense of making the thing work reasonably efficiently in KSP.

So, part count is a low, low 200 :P It's those damnable RCS ports. I've kept everything else to a minimum to keep that count down; there's plenty of room for improvements on this vessel if you've got a computer to handle it.

This thing will probably accommodate at least four Class A 'roids, maybe even six but for now there's just two grabbers.

With the launcher this comes in at pretty hefty 372 parts. Fortunately by orbit you'll have ditched 172 of them. Mechjeb can get this thing to a circular 250km orbit without too many issues, though you will need to help steer the nose to the correct heading a little if it starts to tilt away from it. Don't forget to 'Control from here' on the command core (as pictured) before launch!

Gotta hand it to those Dusters; they'll turn that valley into a garden one day soon!

To inspire you to do the Rocinante, just in case you haven't seen this already...

This isn't a bump due to lack of interest. Really, honest. It's more like a small mole hill in the neighbours garden. Totally SEP.
