I do lots of things you never get to see, like this golf to truck conversion.

Mostly the reason you don't get to see it all is because I don't always feel like finishing a project.

But I can share some of it here. ^_^

How about Flying Cars...? :)

Well, I can't say I'm not thinking about it...

I loved Mask as a child, I might try making this car.

But there are so many things I want to do, like this Tamiya Grasshopper from 1984:

As a kid I dreamed about this, never got it...

But now thanks to KSP I can build one myself. ^_^

But for now I'm calling it a day, I picked up a little toy I'm going to build while watching a movie. &)

Considering how often race cars get festooned with many sponsors' logos, perhaps you could make a car covered with the various Kerbal agencies symbols ?

Would be cool on a Nascar, a full KSP themed wrap could look awesome. &)

Needs a bit of tuning, maybe lowered down a bit, I'm happy with the speed: 44 m/s.

The roof NEBULA decal.

It also left a big dent... :lol:

Thanks for liking it, I've uploaded it because it actually drives well without my wheel config files.

Let me know what you think of it, if you try it that is.

Just because TweakScale makes it possible doesn't mean you have to indulge in it.

I don't care, I just love that now that I've started using TweakScale I can build things I couldn't before.

I'm having a blast with that mod.

But FYI, I just got back from a mission using ZERO TweakScale. ^_^

MISSION:

- Take off from Dessert Airfield

- Fly to the Jebi Temple

- Plant a flag

- Return home.

I wasn't very clear there.  I didn't so much mean the use of TweakScale as using it to make two craft identical in form but different in size.  Seems...unnatural.

Kudos on the mission and the pics.

One thing I wish was true: the standard scales were simple multiples of 1m, not 1.25m, 2.5m, etc.  Just irritates me.  Not much can be done about it now.

All parts are so huge compared with the Kerbals, maybe if they also had 0,5m parts I would not have to use Tweakscale.

I spend some more time tuning the Grasshopper and I'm very happy about how it handles now: &)

I'm going to test the Grasshopper in the desert, driving it from the Dessert Airfield to the temple.
