I'm making a somewhat realistic PAK FA T-50 (similar weight and size) made to work in FAR (aesthetic secondary), really curious to see how it will handle..

I made a 100% stock propeller driven car. :)

Now it needs to move faster than 10 m/s...

WIP

The all new SSI Proton T shuttlecraft prototype for .90: 3 Kerbal SSTO capable of rountrips from 120km station, to KSC, and back up again, plus more. (and yes that's a universal docking port before Offset was invented)

For those of you who wanted moar shots:

(I may have to switch to the bigger landing struts, the mini ones are pretty weak)

And bugger, it's a little too big for the Apollo! The old one was much better with scale.

A request by someone. Uses my 168kN IL8RE engines. Estimated part count when ready: 1100.

Work continues as turning the body upside down solves every problem there was because KSP aerodynamics is dumb and I can't wait for 1.0 to finally get here.

Not exactly a fan of the aesthetic but in this case function and form couldn't work together.

YE-8 lander + Lunokhod - 204 parts WIP - 4.865 tons.

i managed to get two double folding (the ramps were articulated in the middle) but it proved too unreliable and added too much parts to be of real use :) (when it worked only 25% of the time, i decided not to follow double folding ramps like on the real one, and gone with only simple 1 hinge articulated ramp on each side :P)

gave me a hard time finetuning though :P (thanks hyperedit to give kerbin mun like characteristics to test out the lander deployement :P)

almost ready...

1.55 is doing much better but the vacuum TWR is too low to get past sub-orbital.

@darth lazarus Looks nice but aren't the boosters a wee too small?

I'd recommend not having a flat front wing-edge on the craft, as the increased drag can slow down the craft heavily and lead to unbalanced flight.

Depends on FAR or not.

depends on the reference pictures. on some the SRB's are thicker, on some they have the size like in KSP.

but i think i wil lrework the second stage and add the fifth engine for the maincore

Well, SLS using the STS components as a basis, it's quite easy to 'shrink' it to KSP's.

- the shuttle's ET is 8.4m in real life - our kerbodynes are 3.75m - so that gives us 8.4 / 3.75 = a 2.24 scale ratio.

Now the SRB's are 3.71m in diameter in real life, which gives us a 3.71 / 2.24 = 1.65m for a ksp equivalent :)

So yes, it'll be quite hard to pinpoint the good diameters with stock KSP parts ;)

I'm referencing stock, which is what Spartwo uses if I'm not mistaken.

That's not the issue Script and I can simply fix the actual issue with replacement vacuum engines.
