Your efforts to deceive us are futile. We know there's a middle bench seat in there somewhere.

That is only on the deluxe version. :lol:

 

Working on the back, still needs lights.

It looks a lot smoother with some paint on it. &)

The build of the car is ready, next up is mostly tuning and beautification, if that is a word.

The front, simple and clean, I will make a VW decal emblem for it.

The back, again, simple.

Changed the trunk space, gastank nicely tucked away underneath.

The dashboard, the dails will get some decals later.

Enginebay, simple engine, single 400 battery and 1 fuelcell.

As soon as the car is finished I'm going to rip out the engine and backseats and turn it into a rally car. :cool:

The camo mod is great to get rid off all the lines. &)

I do need to sort out the windows, those lines need to go . . . :unsure:

The windows are the only modded parts, the rest is stock + tweakscale.

I made the VW emblem (NEBULA decal), I hate the wheels, doesn't look right, but it is the best I can do without clipping in the back passenger seats.

Work on my new swing wing design continues. Designed a functional actuation system, then realized that this setup is entirely too small to be used on the craft I had in mind (a F-111 Aardvark), so with the concept proven, it was time to return to the drawing board.

8v1g09U.png

This utter chaotic mess is my process for getting the wing shape and size correct, which was a remarkably tedious process, and one that I'm glad is over now. The I-beams mark the swept and unswept width of the wing, as well as the angles of the leading edge in either configuration. The structural panels are used as a measuring stick to get the position of the hinge and the peak of the wing glove in the right position. Lastly, the basic fins are the perfect part for forming wing gloves (they are offset so that I can access the RCS ball which is the rotation point), since they're a third the width of a wing panel. 

Now that the wing shape is correct and the angles are all good, the next step is to add the actuation mechanism back on and stress-test it to ensure that this design is up to the same standards as my other swing wings.

Converting the Golf into a sports model.

Bigger wheels and fenders, removed the back seats. Spoiler, doorhandles and mirrors are a new addition.

The new grip pads make great speakers, 1 in each door:

And some big woofers in the back: :cool:

EDIT:

I made a VW logo using some small wings and a small air intake.

Now it looks like my Gramma's car, except one of my cousins bought it off her and modded it.

The VW Golf is done, so we move on to our next project.

The cage is pre-fabricated, that will speed up things. &)

TR-2L wheels in real size...Are they too big or are my cars too small ? ? ? :wacko:

50% size will do for me... made a roof around the cage:

Update:

More bodywork.

First time I made a full door, this took a lot of time, and since the left and right door are seperate moving parts I had twice the work.... ^_^

Completed the L3 lunar complex and mounted it to the top of the N1. Fully assembled the rocket sits at over 1300 parts and lags considerably on the launchpad. I've also run into a strange bug that appears after reverting to launch/vab. After reverting and relaunching the first stage breaks up during staging causing the entire rocket to explode. It's a good excuse to test the launch escape system, but it seems I'm limited to 1 good flight before having to restart KSP. It's not terrible but it does make testing a bit tedious.

On the bright side the lag clears up after shedding stage 3. From this point onward things tend to go smoothly for both the game and the L3.

Block G propels the complex into a translunar tranjectory. I couldn't find precise information on the layout of Block G so this rendition was the result of a bit of guesswork. I don't know if the main engine could gimbal so for attitude control I've added RCS thusters at the base.

The Soyuz 7K LOK orbiter separates from the stack. Here It'll stay in a 100km x 15km orbit while the LK descends to the surface. 

aMPhopR.png

LK landed, awaiting ascent.

rzHTKq6.png

The LK's matches the LOK's orbit with just 50m/s to spare. The final approach and docking is performed by the LOK.

pUMVyIt.png

The habitation and engine modules split off from the descent module before reentry. 

At this stage the N1 is basically complete save for some minor detail work. I was planning on upgrading it to look more like the N1F since that was the version which would've made the Moon landing in reality. However my redesigned N1F stages produce incredible amounts of drag and I can't figure out why. While this version isn't totally accurate I think I'll have to release it in this form.

Currently working on a XB-68 replica, a defunct mach 2 capable supersonic bomber that was superseded by the B-58. The wings and engines+intakes are complete with the fuselage being half finished. The craft is currently sitting at 414 parts and a hefty 38 tonnes.

That is a gourgeous cockpit. Also interesting use of the radiators there to form straight struts.

At the moment it looks more like a Trabant... :lol:

I'm thinking about restarting and make this a 4 seater.

Restarting the Mini project, made a small 4 person chassis.

Test fitting:

Mini...Small on the inside, big on the outside.

Next up, give it some wheels and then the hardest part, creating the body...
