Show me your space shuttles!!

Recommended Posts

Since I've just recently built my space shuttle Dislantis, I'd like to see what you guys have for reusable orbital transport. Here's the Dislantis (in orbit):NhHnSOB.png

Mods used: Cormorant Aeronology (awesome for creating a realistic shuttle that still blends in with stock!)

The premise for a shuttle is that it must be a vertically launched spacecraft that has a winged orbiter that will glide back to a landing after its mission. Although it doesn't have to be fully reusable, it must drop stages to get into orbit (no SSTOs!)

Show me yours!

Been using a stock space shuttle for ages. It's actually the second one I've built as the Mk3 overhaul killed the first one.

 

It's a pretty close replica with pure solid boosters, and engines on the orbiter and not the external tank.

How does do you land such an oddly shaped tank?

FMRS, parachutes, long as landing legs and a bit of practice

Tomorrow (or the day after, I don't know) my shuttle will be launching two RCS-powered 'helper tugs' which will help in wrangling payloads around my space station. It will also be the first time the Dislantis performs a rendezvous with another spacecraft. Will post some pics!!

These ones I'm taking right now as I had a shuttle mission going when I saw this.

Quite a few more pictures in the WDYDIKT thread.

Also, since all my issues with Dock Rotate seem to have been squared away, I'll be continuing this soon:
