I'm kind-of-sort-of working on one right now. I've been very busy since February, so I haven't had the time or energy to make any meaningful progress. It's getting there but it's going to be slow going. Best I can say is that it'll be ready when it's ready. Hopefully that's before KSP2 launches, but I promise I'll see at least the analogue cockpit finished.

One thing that looks like I forgot.

What is the difference for the control mode Forward vs - 15 degrees ?   I am unable to find it in the manual that was bundled with the zip file.

It changes the control point to be more aligned with the thrust vector from the SSME's and the OMS. It is useful for controlling the vehicle after booster separation up until reentry.

Is this mod "feature complete" or are you planning on adding anything additional?

I’d call it feature complete in that I’ve covered the scope of what I was originally planning. There are certainly things I’d like to add if and when I have the time, but don’t count on it!

Those winglets look amazing. Wow!

Oh yeah. Clever trick too. Make a bunch of thin wing parts stacked on top of each other and then rotate them sequentially to get a clean bend, and then just translate them into each other to close the gaps.

The buran parts are still in development. Just be patient and wait for Benjee10 to finish them.

There wouldn't be any problem if it's for your own personal use.

So to clarify you are welcome to make a part that fits with SOCK & release it however you please, so long as that part doesn't make use of models or textures from SOCK itself. So if you wanted to make your own Buran aft section that works with SOCK that is no problem.

However, you may want to hold fire:

There is still a lot to be done on Buran but I'm hoping to get back to it soon. The entire rest of the orbiter needs new textures to fit with the fully-tiled Buran look, and I need to make a new set of front landing gear & a variant of the cargo bay to fit it (Buran's landing gear are on the cargo bay rather than the nose). 

I'm wondering if people's preference would be for me to release the parts as they are finished (e.g. release just the aft section) or to wait until the whole craft is done.

I mean its up to you but it would be nice if you released parts as they were finished on github then fully release on spacedock but its up to you 

And Oh my god Buran looks So nice

I'd say as they're done, but thats only because I'm an impatient sort of person like that lol.
