This is just an experiment so far: the Giga Buggy.

i got really annoyed with the wheel mechanic in 1.0.2... its horrible, and the stock wheels are even worse. so i though... why not make my OWN wheels? this horrible abomination was the result...

max of 28 m/s currently (i can force it up to 40 but it's highly unstable)

That seems very reasonable! :D The games performance now is amazing. I am seeing 60FPS with over 500 parts.

I'm was trying to make F-86 replica (kinda). I crashed in the water and survived, and did this.

yes i do, i just far to lazy to make ANOTHER account somewhere. also, im going to be making a few custom MM configs soon for tweakscale and kspi integration. im going to try and find a way to turn select RCS thrusters into engines so thay can be used as spot thrusters or manuver engines with TCA.

You may have seen it in other threads, but seeing as this is the WIP thread and it's still WIP...Zarya got a lifter!

It behaves beautifully in my RSS save. I start the gravity turn at 100m/s, lock prograde and all I have to do is stage to orbit. No control touches! :D

The main thing I've got left to work on is the fairing. It's not right yet, and while I can't make it accurately narrow due to the antennae, I can make it a more accurate height. Gonna be a bit difficult, but I'll see what I can do

I've benn making some prop shells for my Bismarck and Prinz Eugen. They work pretty well at ~Mach 2, but require oversized booster oversized from behind to "fly", because for some reason they have ridiculous amounts of drag that I can't explain, not even the oversized booster.

I got HMS Prince Of Wales to work in 1.0.5, now I have given the ship paint, and I've reduced the part count to around 680 parts!

I tried to re-create the orion spacecraft using stock parts. I'm not satisfied with the transfer stage yet, and the whole rocket is a bit too tall and wobbly, but I think the capsule itself looks quite good. Let me know what you think!

My recent S7-F14 TomCat Aircraft release inspired me to create an Aircraft Carrier to support the craft. I am currently doing some practice landings and noticed that I will need to add some stopping power, I will test Parachutes like I've seen others using or some Sepratrons might do the trick. The Carrier "Sentinel" is a WIP at the moment.

"SENTINEL PROJECT"

S7-F14 TomCat & Aircraft Carrier Sentinel

After hours of testing I landed a S7-F14 TomCat on the Sentinel Aircraft Carrier! See Video Here. The Sepratrons worked, with precision timing and speed the craft can be landed. The video of the craft landing is with one engine damaged but the testing proves that it can be done and without damage to the craft with practice. 

 

Another update: After many practice landings I still haven't landed without damage to my craft yet.........or did I?

This has been such a ridiculous challenge for me and I just can't seem to quit until I succeed!!

 

Update: 06-03-2016

Finally after many attempts I made a landing without damage to the Aircraft. This has been very difficult, if I had to guess I would say nearly 40 attempts were made for this successful landing. I plan to release the Carrier soon and both craft on the Challenge Thread.

Update: 06-04-2016

I am having a KERBLAST! this weekend, I was able to load five Tomcats on the Air Craft Carrier Sentinel, test launched a craft successfully and it's been so fun! After a few more tweaks and testing it will be time for video production.

Craft loaded and launched from the Carrier success!

It's not stock parts except the shuttle and I don't think he made the crawler man. The re-textured shuttle is very nice though.

I think he meant is it in game, like I didn't photoshop in the crawler.

Yes I knew about the crawler tracks but the crawler itself has so much detail I thought it might have been a photo.....in awe still...
