This one now quietly hopes for an NK-33. Maybe even unshrouded.

But I could never imagine what we would need that for :wink:

Turbo-pump needs rework (This is borrowed from the RD-216).

Straight conical fuel booster tank variant.

I usually make these for all nose-cone type parts, but this actually is more close to real life:

And the end result - you have the real deal Soyuz tanks, or close enough...

Some SRBs for Proton?

Maybe we might explore some of the stranger IRL concepts.

Blasphemy. 

But I'm betting that it was part of the original URM proposal.

Surprisingly a little more recent :wink:

For the Proton-M to deliver >3 tons to geostationary orbit, one suggestion was to add Topol solid rockets to the first (And second) stages.

Quote

Phased upgrades

Originally planned to fly in 2000, the Proton-M/Briz-M vehicle made its successful inaugural flight in April 2001 and delivered its first commercial payload on Dec. 30, 2002. However even with all its upgrades, Proton-M still fell short by more than 600 kilograms of the original requirement from the Russian government to deliver 3.2 tons of payload directly to the geostationary orbit. Moreover, the expected emergence of Western commercial satellites exceeding five tons in mass, which needed to be dropped at the geostationary transfer orbit, would also leave Proton short on payload.

To address the problem, various solutions were proposed, some of them very radical. For example, solid propellant motors borrowed from the Soviet-era Topol missiles could be strapped to the sides of the first and second stage! At least two hydrogen-powered upper stages were also drafted.

It's taking a while isn't it? Well here is some progress at least, and a craft file for you to play with.

@Beale Topol SRBs actually sound like a really good idea for Tantares, plus you could expand upon this by making the real Start-1.

This could be a fun small project for sure.

My house is definitely made of glass in this scenario :unsure:

Updated with better FX. Some minor tweaks.

And now for something completely not different.

Thanks @Drakenex for hashing out these colours, his current Green Salyut (Which is another very pretty shade of green) was a great influence.

Slow progress, but compared to the old this is starting a lot better.

The advantage of this mesh is that the 1.25m variant is basically free, so don't say being lazy never got you anywhere :wink:
