Republic Fleet Firetail

Recommended Posts

Here's the original:

Here's the Kerbal version:

Now if I could only figure out how to upload the .craft...

Mods:

RLA MMRTG

NFJ

Ion-Hybrid-Electric Pack

Firespitter

Nazari Falcondrone

and FusTek Station Parts II

And for some reason I installed the pod upside-down :confused:

Oh, well. That's kerbal-engineering for you.

EDIT: After some thought I removed and added some stuff, mainly to make it more land-able.

I won't start another thread for this part-hog.

There are like over 300 parts, same mods as above.

It flies like a brick tied to a bundle of bottle-rockets. If you get it into the air at all. Forget about landing it... :D

I'll see if I can revise this, push down the part-count at least, then maybe I'll post the .craft :huh:

Maybe I'll try a kestrel.

Here's the updated Slasher, 185 parts, can "land" (at the launchpad, with clamps and lowered landing gear).

CRAFT

Still "flies" like crap, but I placed fewer RCS and around CG, so it doesn't take ages to turn for photo-ops.

Kerbal Pilot tends to hump ladder when trying to climb down (he loves his ship), but almost smooth back up.

Beware of head-seizing struts, and other pitfalls while EVA.

I got me a Kestrel!

Here's how the original one looks:

Here's my Kerbal version:

And here's the CRAFT

It doesn't fly, just spins until the pilots get sick :P This ship is for looks only.

I leave it up to the audience to edit it with the appropriate BLING!

I did a Crucifier, flies just as great as the Kestrel.

Imperial Crucifier CRAFT

I never flew these, so IDK whether it is completely accurate.

I noticed my oops with the Kestrel. I won't update the .craft though, since you just have to flip the nose a bit.

Might be a bit hard to do a lot of caldari ships faithfully due to the weird asymmetry, butdI'd like to see a merlin

As someone who's played a bit of EvE, I must say these replica ships are amazing!

I haven't figured out how to rout most of the fuel to the two wing-engines, so they die pretty fast in space, but the two jet-engines function fine on the launchpad, though this thing flies like a homesick rock.

Maybe someone will do a nice EVE-Kerbal machinima and upload it to youtube? Not me though, that's beyond my capabilities.

Oh, and if the shader glitches with this, just exit to the spaceport and get back through the radar. If that doesn't work,re-start KSP, then return through the radar, or maybe through an EVA or something. Maybe it's just my crappy lappy though.

Okay wow, most of the ships look kind of junky compared to their counterparts, but damn, that Merlin looks awesome.

Wonderful design....but:

that's not a Merlin , that's a Hawk ...or a Harpy....wait ....it's both ;)

rjkwhSt.png

look at the thing'ies under the wings .....looks like a HAWK....not a Merlin ...BUT it's actually something even more confusing:

It is a weird mix of Harpy and Hawk. The inner tubes under the wing (close to the center) are taken from the harpy, the bigger "rocketlike" tubes under each wing (midwing) are taken from the hawk ;)
