Information Changelog Stats

Shuttle Orbiter Construction Kit is a parts mod designed to build a Kerbalized version of the NASA Space Shuttle Orbiter. This has been something of a labour of love for me - I started work on the modelling for this almost four months ago. Countless hours have gone into the modelling & (especially) texturing, along with hundreds of test flights tweaking the balance and aerodynamics. 

Key features:

Highly detailed parts replicate the Space Shuttle Orbiter in a stockalike/Restockalike style at Kerbal scale Switchable Shuttle names & decals Minimal part count (mirrored parts are handled through part switching) 2.5m diameter payload bay Fine-tuned aerodynamics ensure ease of flight while maintaining realistic mission profiles Works best in 2.5X scale Kerbin, but will function just fine at stock scale Canadarm ("KerboArm") utilizes Breaking Ground DLC robotics, or Infernal Robotics - Next in 1.7.2 if installed Full IVA for all parts Craft files included for Stock + Breaking Ground, as well as for reDIRECT & Infernal Robotics - Next User manual included!

IMPORTANT: This mod DOES NOT include the orange External Tank or boosters  - these are from my other mod reDIRECT, which is designed to integrate with this mod but is not a dependency. It is perfectly possible to build a working launch system for this Orbiter using stock parts only!**
